Fluke Corporation’s P3 Series thermal imagers include the Ti32 and TiR32 models, plus the new Ti27 and Ti29 models for industrial, electrical, mechanical and process applications; and the TiR27 and TiR29 models for building inspection, energy audit, weatherization and building maintenance applications. All models are specifically designed to work in the harshest environments and provide superior image quality with one-handed, easy-to-use interfaces, the company says.
The imagers measure temperature from -20 to 600 degrees C on Ti models, and -20 to 150 degrees C on TiR models. They feature a high temperature colour alarm on the industrial models, and low temperature or dewpoint colour alarm on the building models. They all allow voice annotation.
The P3 Series features patented Fluke IR-Fusion technology that captures infrared and visible light images and simultaneously displays them fused together to better diagnose issues. It features multiple viewing modes and allows users to manipulate images right on the camera’s display. By enabling users to manage and analyse images with complete control over both the infrared and visible light spectrums, IR-Fusion makes it easier to identify details and potential problems.
Fluke SmartView professional IR analysis and reporting software is included with each thermal imager with unlimited licenses and free lifetime upgrades. The modular suite of tools for viewing, annotating, editing and analysing infrared images enables users to edit images in five viewing modes and generate customized professional reports in a few steps using its report wizard. The software fully supports Fluke IR-Fusion technology and features Fluke 3D-IR three-dimensional viewing that makes hot or cold spots pop out of the background for easy viewing and analysis.
