Fluke Introduce Infrared Cameras with LaserSharp™ Auto Focus
- Published: Friday, 22 November 2013 08:53
The new infrared cameras feature LaserSharp™ Auto Focus, using a laser to pinpoint exactly where the camera should focus for precisely focused images every time - see video at www.fluke.co.uk/lasersharp
The rugged Fluke Ti200, Ti300 and Ti400 will soon be able to connect to the Fluke CNX™ Wireless system, allowing them to be used as a main unit to view live measurements from up to five wireless modules (e.g. AC current or voltage modules) on its screen, and integrate the data into the infrared image. This functionality will be provided by a firmware update.
The infrared cameras feature wireless connectivity to easily transfer images from the cameras directly to PCs, an Apple® iPad® or iPhone® which can then be imported into Fluke SmartView® software, a professional suite of analysis and reporting tools for optimising and analysing infrared images and producing professional reports.
New SmartView® Mobile app
The cameras integrate wirelessly with the new Fluke SmartView Mobile app for iPhone and iPad. Like the desktop version, the SmartView Mobile app allows users to transfer images wirelessly for additional image optimisation and analysis and to create professional reports, but now they can share information without returning to the office to create and send reports to clients or management. With the SmartView Mobile app, users can get approval for additional work needed or next steps immediately, increasing efficiency and profitability. And unlike many other apps, SmartView Mobile is optimised for both the iPhone and iPad, maximising the productivity no matter which device is used.
Other advanced features
Only Fluke infrared cameras feature patented IR-Fusion® technology, which merges the infrared and visual images into a single view to better discover, diagnose, and communicate problems. With IR-Fusion technology, images can be viewed from full infrared to blended views to a full visible image, to precisely document problem areas.
The infrared cameras are Bluetooth-ready and include wireless connectivity to PCs, GPS positioning and recording, streaming video, a ruggedised capacitive touch screen for quick menu navigation, IR-PhotoNotes™ Photo Annotation System, field-changeable rechargeable smart batteries with charge level indicators, and high temperature measurements up 1200°C (Ti400 model only).
The Fluke Ti200, Ti300, and Ti400 infrared cameras are available now. Some features mentioned may be available at a later time as free upgrades: users will be notified via SmartView software when available. For more information, visit: www.fluke.co.uk/lasersharp
