COMTEST is offering the new Ti480 and Ti450 PRO series infrared cameras, recently fine-tuned to make it easier for technicians, engineers, and electricians to get to the problem’s root cause faster by identifying hot spots, cold spots, and apparent surface temperature differentials with a higher degree of confidence. The Fluke PRO series cameras introduce a leading-edge visual infrared experience with the smartest, most intuitive user interface available to market. The units feature increased thermal sensitivity that captures the smallest measurement differences, the latest technology for on-screen clarity, and lens compatibility to capture targets – from tiny to large. Now, with the Ti450 PRO, worrying about focus is obsolete. MultiSharp™ focus captures images that are focused throughout the field of view, even if users start from a completely blurry target. The camera takes multiple images and combines them to give a clear, accurate focus on targets, near and far. Here are five upgraded features of Fluke Professional Series infrared cameras that can help users quickly solve common issues:
Increased sensor sensitivity The additional sensitivity to the camera’s internal sensor helps capture smaller surface temperature differences, making it easier to visualize results. With the enhanced measurement accuracy and the wider dynamic temperature range of the Ti450 PRO–up to 1500 °C with NETD as low as 25 mK, users can collect precise information for making informed decisions that boost companies’ return on investment (ROI).
Sharper images for diagnosing issues Improvements to Fluke Ti480 and Ti450 PRO firmware means sharper onscreen infrared images with clearer colour differentiation, giving a stronger visual indicator of temperature differentials. PRO series infrared cameras show deviations from standard temperatures and relay issues to a remote team using multiple Delta-T (ΔT) markers. Temperature-related issues can be spotted and analyzed with more certainty.
Updated user interface The improved, user-tested, touch screen interface of the Fluke Ti480 and Ti450 PRO is more streamlined than ever. The display integrates a contemporary design, featuring multiple rectangular markers in-camera. It helps users identify min/max temperatures for an area of the equipment or equipment array. To further enhance the visual display, the cameras have a new palette and wider colour array of yellows and greens to help distinguish heat differences.
More flexibility to visualize targets with smart lenses Fluke Ti480 and Ti450 PRO series infrared cameras are now compatible with more Fluke infrared smart lenses. Whether the thermal inspection calls for macro, telephoto, or wide-angle, the appropriate lens can be attached to better capture the target. Fluke smart lenses are interchangeable between compatible cameras, without calibration.
Share thermal images with SmartView® and Fluke Connect® With the improvements to the firmware and thermal sensitivity of Ti450 and Ti480 PRO series infrared cameras, users are better prepared to create comprehensive and professional thermal inspection reports. SmartView® gives thermal investigators a simple solution for viewing infrared images on a mobile device or desktop computer. Fluke Connect offers an easy way to share thermal images where they can be viewed on a smartphone or tablet allowing team members to collaborate and analyze equipment status in real-time.
When it comes to infrared camera technology, advancements are typically not as dramatic as redesigning the entire tool. Sometimes, iterative changes to the visual display and software of professional grade infrared cameras can have a significant impact on ease of use, accuracy and reporting capabilities. The Ti450 and Ti480 PRO Fluke infrared cameras continue to deliver insightful thermal inspections.
A company’s greatest investment is not the equipment that’s behind the panel door; top priority is to offer the ultimate protection for the electricians, engineers and inspectors who risk their lives every day doing their jobs. Users can maximize their thermal imaging camera with Fluke infrared windows, allowing for thermal inspections without opening a panel and ensuring faster inspection of equipment, more often and with vastly improved safety.
