Knowledge Based Library (KBL)


The latest version of Thermal Trend – Lean has an improved Knowledge Based Library that is much easer to maintain and use then in previous versions.  The more straight forward perspective has been developed for the logical classification of information that is combined with Microsoft Auto Suggest feature on the Pocket PC, which provides a vey powerful tool for standardization of common terms.


Thermal Trend – Lean's Knowledge Based Library (KBL) provides for the storage and retrieval of common terminology for:

  • Locations
  • Equipment
  • Problems
  • Comments
  • Problem Causes
  • Recommendations


This allows for data to be entered once and be used over and over without the need of having to re-key in the data and provides for standards to be established for common descriptions of terms.  We have designed the user interface to allow the thermographer to easily select the most appropriate terms or descriptions that have been stored in the KBL, or quickly add new items as needed when they re-documenting a new problem.



The KBL comprises Types and Fields and the associated Comment for each as follows:



  1. Thermal
  2. Baseline
  3. Visual
  4. Roof
  5. Corona
  6. Ultrasound
  7. Transformer
  8. Regulator
  9. Battery
  10. Breaker
