RS Components now offers the new Fluke TiS20+ and TiS60+ handheld infrared thermal imaging cameras. Providing simple one-handed fixed-focus image capture, these new Fluke infrared imagers are ideal for engineers and technicians new to thermal imaging, enabling accurate non-contact temperature measurement from a safe distance to expose invisible thermal issues that cannot otherwise be detected.
The TiS20+ is an entry-level thermal imager designed as a troubleshooting tool for electricians, first-line industrial maintenance and HVACR technicians. Capable of measuring temperatures between –20C and +150C, it features a ruggedised 3.5" touchscreen and 120x90 infrared detector resolution. The device provides outstanding battery life covering over five hours of continuous operation, while a sleep mode saves battery consumption between inspection points.
The TiS60+ is a higher-resolution device that assists maintenance teams to identify smaller problems from further away. Also featuring a 3.5" touchscreen, it provides 320x240 detector resolution and an extended measurement temperature range from –20C to +400C.
Both new thermal imagers feature the company's IR-Fusion technology, which automatically captures a visible light image at the same time as each infrared image. The camera blends the two images, pixel for pixel, so the user can view a full infrared display, full visible light, or various combinations in between — selected by sliding a finger across the screen. The precise location of any thermal issue can then be pinpointed even if the infrared contrast is low and there is little structure to the infrared image.
The devices are both compatible with Fluke Connect desktop software, which allows recording and sharing of thermal images in real-time via smartphones or tablets, or automatic upload to the cloud. Professional reports can be created in minutes, capturing full radiometric data to support maintenance programmes.
The devices measure 26.7cm x 10.1cm x 14.5cm, weigh 0.72kg, are designed and tested to endure a 2m drop, and are water and dust resistant to IP54.
