Eight lens options for Fluke TiX infrared cameras
By Alyssa Dalton
Dec. 12, 2014 – Fluke has introduced what it says is its highest resolution infrared camera ever: the TiX series infrared camera.
The TiX1000 (with 1024 x 768 resolution), TiX660 and TiX640 (both 640 x 480) boast up to 10 times the on-camera pixels as are available on standard 320 x 240 cameras and a 5.6-in. articulating display to help identify issues while still in the field. Meanwhile, the TiX Expert series promises to deliver highly detailed image quality, the most advanced focusing options available on one infrared camera, and the versatility to capture accurate measurements from targets that are challenging, dangerous, or moving too fast. With eight lens options (two telephoto, two wide angle, three macro, and one standard), the TiX series can capture images from a range of distances to accommodate various applications. SmartView software combines the images taken from multiple focal distances and creates an image that sharpens the detail of not just the initial focal point, but the elements around the focal point, providing an in-focus image for objects at different distances, says the company.
The series is part of the Fluke Connect system, a portfolio of connected tools which allows technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from their test tools to their smartphones and tablets for storage on the cloud and universal team access from the field.
