Sydney, September 2, 2009 – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced the Fluke Ti32 thermal imager to help Fluke customers do more with less in tough economic times.
The Fluke Ti32 is designed and priced to deliver unprecedented performance for troubleshooting and preventive maintenance of electrical installations, electro-mechanical equipment, process equipment, HVAC/R equipment and more.
Using Fluke’s patented IR-Fusion technology, users can marry high-precision thermal images with visible light images in full screen, picture-in-picture or blended views for enhanced problem detection and analysis.
IR-Fusion is the only solution available with physical parallax correction, which enables perfect alignment, pixel by pixel, of both infrared and visible images. Fluke products are the only thermal imagers on the market to incorporate IR-Fusion in both camera and software.
The combined capabilities of the Fluke Ti32 can help plant and system maintenance professionals reduce energy consumption, strengthen preventive maintenance programs and increase reliability by expanding problem detection and providing customised reports.
The Fluke Ti32 includes a three-button menu designed for intuitive operation and navigation, on-screen emissivity correction, transmissivity correction and high temperature alarm.
Each unit comes with two field-swappable, rechargeable batteries that enable virtually continuous imager use, with a typical battery life of more than four hours each. Optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses are available to bring distant and wide views into sharp focus.
The rugged Fluke Ti32 is tested to withstand a drop of 6.5 metres and is IP54 rated to withstand water and dust. It has a widescreen, full colour LCD display, increased thermal sensitivity, ?0.05 ° C at 30 ° C target temperature, and a temperature measurement range of -20 °C to +600 °C.
The Fluke Ti32 includes a 2 gigabyte standard definition memory card that will store at least 3,000 basic infrared images, .bmp or .jpg formats, or 1,200 fully radiometric, .is2 IR Fusion file format, infrared and linked visual images, each with 60 seconds of voice annotation, as well as a multi-function memory card reader for downloading images into a computer.
Each imager comes with a rugged hard carry case and a soft transport bag, an adjustable hand strap for right- or left-handed use, two rechargeable lithium ion smart batteries, a two-bay external charger, an AC power supply and an interactive training DVD.
Fluke SmartView software, with free software upgrades for the life of the product, is also included with each thermal imager. SmartView software is a modular suite of tools for viewing, annotating, editing and analysing infrared images that fully supports Fluke IR Fusion technology.
It enables users to edit images in five viewing modes and generate customised professional reports in a few steps. Fluke 3D-IR three-dimensional viewing makes hot or cold spots “pop out” of the background for easy viewing and analysis.
The Fluke Ti32 thermal imager is designed for inspection and process control applications in many industrial functions, including:
* inside electrical distribution and service including switch gear, panels, controls, fuses, transformers, outlets, lighting, conductors, overhead buss, motor control centres
* motors, pumps and mechanical equipment such as electric motors and generators, pumps, compressors, evaporators, bearings, couplings, gearboxes, gaskets/seals, belts and rollers
* process systems including tanks and vessels, pipes, valves and traps, reactors and refractory insulation
* HVAC/R including air conditioning, heating, air handlers, compressors, chillers, boilers, furnaces and refrigeration
* outside electrical distribution for utilities such as transformers, bushings, insulators, transmission lines, large circuit breakers, service connections, disconnects and capacitor banks.
Fluke IR-Fusion® Technology
Patented Fluke IR-Fusion technology captures infrared and 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.
It features multiple viewing modes and lets users manipulate images on the camera’s display. By enabling users to manage and analyse images with complete control over both the infrared and visible light spectrums, IR-Fusion makes it easier to identify details and potential problems.
