Transformer location inspection checklist

Use this checklist to document the condition and maintenance records of your transformers.

Regular internal and external inspections of transformers are critical to ensure optimal function and reduce maintenance costs. A transformer inspection checklist enables users to perform regular inspections and report on the condition of their assets.

  • Purpose of a transformer inspection
  • Benefits of using a transformer location inspection app

What are the requirements of a transformer location inspection checklist?

It is vital to perform regular inspections to maintain your transformers’ function, structure, and safe operation. The preventive transformer inspection checklist includes the items related to the structure, function, and location of the transformer, such as the address, tank exterior, foundation and support, and containment structure.

Who uses a transformer location inspection checklist and why?

Utility companies, electrical engineers and inspectors can use this transformer inspection checklist to check the appearance and containment areas of their transformers to ensure they are functioning properly and without hazards.

Why use a transformer location inspection checklist app?

When you conduct transformer inspections with a paper checklist, it’s easy to get the location wrong because of messy handwriting, transcription errors, or damaged forms. But with a transformer location inspection app, the inspection records are automatically geotagged and can be viewed on a map so you can easily track your assets and their condition. A mobile app also enables you to automatically attach photos to the inspection records without having to worry about matching up the right images with the right inspection reports, and to create automated workflows that ensure any needed repairs happen quickly and efficiently.
