IR/Thermal Monitoring

New Fluke Ti25 and Ti10 Thermal Imagers put problems clearly in the picture

Fluke Europe B.V., the European sales and service organization of Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, today announced the high-performance Fluke Ti25 and Fluke Ti10 Thermal Imagers.

Built to withstand harsh work environments, the Fluke Ti25 and Ti10 are designed as a complete, effective and easy-to-use thermal imaging solution for everyday troubleshooting and maintenance of electrical installations, electro-mechanical equipment, process equipment, HVAC/R equipment and other industrial and electrical equipment. Both models incorporate IR Fusion®, a patent-pending technology that integrates infrared and visual (visible light) images in full screen or picture-in-picture views for enhanced problem detection and analysis. IR-Fusion uses a unique image correction method to exactly overlay the visual and thermal image on top each other, independent of the measurement distance. This unique capability assures a direct relation between the temperature and the real life application at every distance. IR-Fusion® helps users recognize image details and better identify problem areas by quickly scrolling through the different viewing modes.
Fluke Ti10 - Fluke Ti25

As the only thermal imagers available today in this format and price range that incorporate this capability in both the camera and in the software, Fluke thermal imaging products can be an affordable and easy solution in helping users quickly identify potential problem areas and begin analysis in the field.

The new Ti25 and Ti10 are designed following Fluke’s reputation for rugged reliable tools. They are tested to withstand a drop of 2 meters, and are therefore ideal to survive field operation in a harsh industrial environment. A durable lens cover protects the unit when not in use and is firmly stored during operation to avoid inference while images are taken. The new units have an IP54 rating to withstand water and dust. The Ti25 and Ti10 are designed to make the use of thermal imaging affordable and effective for day-to-day troubleshooting and maintenance tasks, featuring the ability to record and save voice comments with every image taken (Ti25 only), a three-button menu designed for intuitive operation and navigation with the push of a thumb, and on-screen emissivity correction (Ti25 only).

With a widescreen full color LCD display, optimized thermal sensitivity, and a temperature measurement range of -20 °C to +350 °C for the Ti25 and -20 °C to +250 °C for the Ti10 , the thermal imagers are suitable for most industrial, electrical and commercial applications, allowing users to operate from a safe distance and still see small temperature differences. Fluke SmartView™ software (with free software upgrades for the life of the product) is included with each thermal imager. A modular suite of tools for viewing, annotating, editing and analyzing of infrared images, SmartView software fully supports Fluke IR-Fusion® technology, enabling users to edit images in five viewing modes and generate customizable, professional-looking reports in a few steps.

The imagers include a 2 GB SD memory card that will store at least 3,000 basic infrared images (.bmp file format) or 1,200 fully radiometric.(.is2 IR Fusion® file format) infrared and linked visual images each with 60 seconds of voice annotation (Ti25 only), as well as an SD card reader (USB) for downloading images into a computer. Each thermal imager comes with a rugged hard carry case and a soft transport bag, an adjustable hand strap for right- or left-handed use, rechargeable internal battery and AC power supply/battery charger (including mains adapters).

Fluke IR-Fusion Technology
IR-Fusion technology (patent pending) facilitates real time pixel-for-pixel merging of infrared and visual (visible light) images together on a single display. Providing five viewing modes – each designed to add greater clarity, accuracy and a valuable frame of reference to infrared images – IR-Fusion allows users to manipulate images right on the camera’s display and is designed specifically to allow users to find problems not commonly or easily detected with other tools

IR-Fusion captures infrared and visual (visible light) images and simultaneously displays the images fused together, adding a new dimension of detail that saves time and money and best conveys infrared information of each specific application and environment. Viewing modes include:

# Full Infrared – high-resolution standard infrared images.

# Full Visible Light (this mode available only in the software of the Fluke Ti25 and Ti10 models) – a visual (visible light) image like you would get with a digital camera

# Picture-in-Picture – an IR image portal surrounded by a visual (visible light) frame for reference.

# Auto (Automatic) Blending (this mode available on the Fluke Ti25 and in the software of the Fluke Ti25 and Ti10) – combines infrared and visual (visible light) images blended together at user-adjustable levels for the greatest image clarity.

# IR/Visible Alarm (this mode available only in the software of the Fluke Ti25 and Ti10 models) – displays only the portions of the image that fall above, below or between a user-specified temperature range as IR, leaving the remainder of the image as full visual (visible light).

IR-Fusion makes it easier to identify details and potential problems by managing and analyzing images with complete control over both the infrared and visual (visible light) spectrums. The ability to fuse images on-camera and optimize images in real-time improves primary target identification, enhances issue locating efficiency and offers a tremendous advantage in reporting clarity.
