February 26, 2015 – Sometimes the infrared images you need to capture are the ones that are almost impossible to take. With a full 180-degree articulating lens and 5.7 inch touchscreen, the new Fluke® TiX560 and TiX520 Infrared Cameras let thermographers easily navigate over, under and around objects to preview and capture images with ease. The cameras are ideal for predictive maintenance, R&D, oil and gas and utility applications where flexibility and higher resolution are essential.
The TiX560 and TiX520 feature a 5.7 inch responsive LCD touchscreen, the largest in its class with 150 per cent more viewing area compared to a 3.5 inch screen. The large screen lets thermographers quickly identify issues while still in the field as well as easily edit images directly on the camera – eliminating time in the office; time better spent solving the problem.
SuperResolution mode boosts resolution four times so the normal 320 x 240 (76,800 pixel) resolution of the images captured increases, to 640 x 480 (307,200 pixels) revealing even greater detail to better identify problems that might have been missed with lower resolution cameras. Optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses add versatility to meet a wide variety of applications.
Out of focus images may produce inaccurate temperature measurements that can be off by as much as 20 degrees, making it easy to miss potential problems. To ensure consistently in-focus images, the cameras feature LaserSharp® Auto Focus, exclusive to Fluke, which uses a built-in laser distance meter to pinpoint the target, and accurately calculate and display the distance.
The cameras also feature Fluke IR-Fusion® technology with Picture-in-Picture, full visible light, and AutoBlend™ modes for easier identification and reporting of problems. On-board advanced analytics lets users adjust or enhance images right on the camera without additional software. Also included is Fluke SmartView® software, which provides a suite of advanced tools to view, optimise, annotate and analyse infrared images, and generate fully customisable professional reports.
TiX560 and TiX520 are part of the Fluke Connect™ system (where available), the world’s largest portfolio of connected tools, which lets technicians wirelessly transmit measurement data from their test tools to their smart phones and tablets for secure storage on the cloud and universal team access from the field.** Fluke Connect with ShareLive™ video call lets teams easily share and access infrared inspections on the go and look at trends over time. The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
