Infrared cameras ready for the toolbox

Infrared cameras ready for the toolbox Priced at around £4,000, the InfraCAM toolkit infrared camera from Flir Systems sets a new entry-level benchmark for safe, non-contact thermal inspection. This new infrared camera has a 120x120 pixel uncooled focal plane array that displays an outstandingly crisp image in a choice of colour palettes on its 3.5in LCD. This quality allows the operator to identify more problems before they become expensive failures. With a high quality image, a field of view of 25x 25deg, a 200mK sensitivity and temperature range of -20deg to 350deg this low-end introduction is far from a low-end performer. It also couldn't be simpler to use: point and shoot operation and simple plug and play report generation make the InfraCAM a highly time-efficient tool. InfraCAM has a fixed measurement spot in the centre of the image and comes with a simple twist-to-focus lens which suits the majority of find-it-fix-it applications. It is controlled by four buttons and a joystick allowing the production of quality thermal images in seconds. In addition InfraCAM has an in-built Laser LocatIR allowing the operator to associate a hot spot with the real physical target both easily and safely. This is particularly important in electrical environments. Weighing less than 550 grams InfraCAM is designed to be easily portable and is IP54-rated to withstand harsh industrial indoor and outdoor use. A long-life battery ensures more than seven hours of continuous operation time and is designed to be recharged in the camera; additional batteries are available as optional extras. InfraCAM stores infrared images in its dedicated internal memory in standard JPEG format; these can be viewed on the camera's image gallery. With just one click any image can be downloaded to a PC and inserted directly into standard Windows programmes such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The camera package includes the ThermaCAM QuickView software that allows basic post-analysis of the captured IR images and the creation of simple reports in PDF format. The list price of this new addition will allow even more small businesses to benefit from the advantages of infrared technology. "Price has always been the stumbling block to the wider use of infrared technology," concludes Paul Sacker, sales and marketing manager for Flir Systems UK. "But not any more. InfraCAM has broken through the price barrier, making it the world's first true toolbox infrared camera."
