Solar Panel Thermal Imaging Brisbane
Deep Blue Solar provides thermal inspections and predictive maintenance to help keep your solar system running in peak condition.
Solar Power Thermal Imaging Inspections
We use a FLIR drone thermal IR camera to inspect:
Thermal Imaging Solar Panel Inspections
Solar panels are designed to last for decades, but regular maintenance and inspections can help ensure their long term performance and identify any necessary repairs or maintenance requirements.
Deep Blue Solar’s IR camera solar panel inspections can detect overheating cells and panel damage that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Thermal imagery helps us monitor your solar system’s performance and minimises down time.
Thermal Camera Electrical Inspections
During a thermal imaging solar power inspection, Deep Blue electricians look for hot spots and other anomalies that can affect the performance and safety of the solar panels.
Hotspots are areas on the solar panels where there is an abnormal concentration of heat. These can be indicative of issues such as faulty wiring, loose connections, or damaged cells. Electricians use thermal imaging to identify and locate hotspots that could potentially lead to reduced efficiency or safety hazards.
Dirty Solar Panels Are Less Efficient
Deep Blue Solar’s electricians also examine the overall temperature distribution across the solar panels.
Significant temperature variations between panels may suggest soiling or shading issues. A dirty or shaded panel may generate lower power, impacting the overall performance of your solar system.

Wiring and Solar Cell Maintenance
Proper electrical wiring and connections are crucial for the safe and efficient operation of solar panels. Loose or damaged connections can cause power loss, overheating, or even electrical hazards.
Deep Blue Solar’s electricians use thermal imaging to inspect the connections between panels, inverters, and junction boxes. We also look for malfunctioning or defective cells or modules.
Our IR camera helps us identify irregular temperature patterns or cold spots that may indicate cells or modules that are not functioning optimally. These issues can result from manufacturing defects, physical damage, or degradation over time.
