© Reuse this To communicate critical information, infra-red (IR) images only are no longer enough. With Fluke’s Infrared Fusion technology, one can now better identify details, and manage and analyse images by combining the IR together with visible light images.
This has been made possible with Fluke’s IR-Fusion technology, which simultaneously captures pixel-for-pixel infrared as well as visible light images and allows full image optimisation with five different on-camera as well as software viewing modes.
With the integrated laser pointer visible on the images, precise and accurate faulty component identification has been significantly simplified.
Fluke’s new range of thermal imagers include the Fluke Ti4x models designed specifically for maintenance and production engineers and technicians.
The Ti40 and Ti45 deliver high-resolution images where even the smallest temperature differences can be seen.
The units are easy to use through the Windows CE menu structure and offer an extended trouble-shooting feature to allow immediate analysis in the field.
The higher-end Ti50 and Ti55 IR FlexCam are aimed at the professional who requires the highest sensitivity application.
These feature 320 by 240 detectors with industry-leading thermal sensitivity for high-resolution and quality images.
In addition, with a 60 Hz-detector acquisition rate, temperatures are displayed live on the large five-inch colour display.
The real power behind IR-Fusion is the Smart-View software. This captures and annotates hundreds of corresponding visible and IR images in the field and imports them into the SmartView suite. Here, the images can be improved for maxi-mum communication value by adjusting within IR-Fusion’s five display modes.
Comtest is the only authorised distributor of Fluke Industrial and Electrical test tools in southern Africa.
