RS Components launches thermal imaging products

June 2018 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

RS Components has announced availability of a new series of thermal imaging and test and measurement products from FLIR. Primarily targeting electricians, electrical engineers and technicians, and those involved in maintenance applications, the selection of products includes an advanced thermal imaging camera along with a wide selection of new handheld multifunction tools.

Integrating FLIR’s MSX (multi spectral dynamic imaging) technology, the FLIR E53 brings thermal imaging within reach of the large number of maintenance engineers and technicians that need the capability to identify hot spots or other issues before they potentially lead to expensive repairs. In one unit, it combines the ability to deliver advanced thermal imaging capability for electrical and mechanical systems, as well as building applications. For example, the easy-to-use E53 is ideal for spotting the build-up of heat in electrical/mechanical applications, as well as delivering the resolution needed to detect temperature changes that indicate a building deficiency such as inadequate insulation or moisture intrusion.

Rugged and reliable

Designed to withstand tough environments, the unit has been built with a rugged and water-resistant design and has been drop-tested to a height of 2 m. Other key features include: WiFi connectivity; a 5-megapixel camera; a vibrant 4-inch touchscreen with a 160-degree viewing angle; and a 240x180 resolution detector that offers more than 43 000 points of temperature measurement and a temperature range up to 650°C. In addition, the device’s agile user interface delivers intuitive operation and useful features such as one-touch level/span, enabling users to improve contrast on their target by touching the screen.

Also new from FLIR are three handheld units that feature the company’s IGM (infrared guided measurement) technology. The DM285 is an all-in-one industrial true-RMS digital multimeter and thermal imager that enables users to find hot spots or temperature anomalies. The device offers a built-in 160 x 120 thermal imager and is ideal for use either on the benchtop or in the field and for inspecting a range of electrical, mechanical and HVAC applications and systems.

The second is the CM275, a clamp meter that combines thermal imaging with electrical measurement, providing a fast and reliable way to identify hot spots and overloaded circuits from a safe distance. The third device is the DM166, which is a highly affordable multimeter with a built-in 80 x 60 thermal imager, ideal for locating temperature anomalies, along with a feature-packed multimeter for troubleshooting and diagnosing issues in either high- and low-voltage applications.

The final part of the launch is the availability of new exceptional-value FLIR multimeters: the DM62 and DM66 True-RMS digital multimeters target electrical and field service engineers and technicians. Combining a rich feature set with precise measurements and quality construction, the units offer measurement of voltage, current, frequency, capacitance, and temperature, as well as impedance for the DM66.
