Portable thermal camera for industrial inspection

October 2019 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

Fluke’s new PTi 120 pocket thermal imager for easy troubleshooting and industrial inspection offers a first line of defence for easy troubleshooting on the job. It is a camera small enough to carry around every day, always at hand. It is rugged and can stand up to dirt and water and survive a 1 metre drop. This gives users the power in their pocket to make enhanced infrared inspections and quick temperature scans of electrical equipment, machinery and other assets.

Connect Asset Tagging automatically saves thermal images to the right folders, eliminating the tedium of sorting and organising infrared images. By simply scanning an asset’s QR code or barcode, the infrared image and all of the applicable date and time stamped information will be stored to predefined folders. This data can be sent via WiFi or automatically uploaded once users connect to the network or computer via USB.

Users can also get the preferred level of infrared for each image with the 9 cm LCD touchscreen that offers IR-Fusion, blending a visible light image with an infrared image to easily locate problems by simply sliding a finger across the screen to adjust the setting.

Key features include:

• Automatically organises and files thermal images with Fluke Connect Asset Tagging.

• Fully radiometric thermal imager gives measurement data to the pixel with 120 x 90 infrared resolution (10 800 pixels).

• 9 cm LCD touchscreen display for easy troubleshooting.

• -20 to 150°C temperature measurement range.

• Six colour palettes.

• IP54 enclosure rating.
