SKF thermal camera simplifies machine inspection

October 2018 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

Maintenance technicians and experienced thermographers can quickly detect troublesome hotspots with the user-friendly SKF TKTI 21 thermal camera.

With a detector of 160 x 120 pixels and a visual camera, the TKTI 21 is suitable for many mechanical and electrical maintenance inspection applications. A wide temperature measurement range of –20 to +350°C makes the TKTI 21 suitable for many proactive maintenance programmes.

Visual and audible temperature limit alarm function alert the user to abnormal conditions. The automatic hot and cold spot cursors quickly pinpoint the extremes in a scene. It has up to five moveable temperature cursors/areas with individual emissivity settings for analysing complex scenes.

Temperature difference of two cursors can be displayed on screen enabling quick and easy temperature comparisons. Isotherms and temperature gradients can be displayed in area analysis boxes for advanced scrutiny, while built-in emissivity tables allow easy emissivity value setting.

Fully radiometric thermal and visual images are stored on the micro SD card provided. Images can be voice annotated for later reviewing with the PC software. The video output function allows live images to be shown on an external display, useful when showing to a group of people.

The camera is supplied with two standard camcorder batteries and an independent charger. Its rugged construction and, with an IP 54 rating, enables use almost anywhere. The comprehensive PC software suite for an unlimited number of users enables advanced image analysis and professional report writing.
