Fluke TIR/9HZ Offers

Optimized for building envelope, restoration and remediation, inspection and roofing applications.
The Fluke TiR Thermal Imager comes with the IR-Fusion Technology that integrates infrared and visual (visible light) images communicating critical information faster and easiertraditional infrared images are no longer enough. IR-Fusion, a patent-pending technology that simultaneously captures a digital photo in addition to the infrared image and fuses it together taking the mystery out of IR image analysis. Thermal imaging is an efficient, nondestructive testing method to detect (potential) problem areas.
Fluke TiR Series Thermal Imagers are built specifically for the building diagnostic industry. Property managers and facility managers use thermal imaging to protect investments and keep buildings in a well maintained, healthy state.
Restoration professionals are using thermal imaging to increase their business, differentiate themselves from their competitors and generate documentation in case they need to defend a future liability claim.
Typical thermal imaging building applications:
  • Moisture intrusion in roof systems, walls, flooring, ceilings and other building areas
  • Leaks in water pipes, buried steam lines, water lines or underground heating systems and sprinkler systems
  • Missing or inadequate insulation areas
  • Heat or cooling loss, HVAC/R problem areas
  • Connection problems in low voltage electrical systems
  • Termite and pest issues
  • Construction failure areas

  • Includes IR-Fusion Technology both in camera and software (combines visible image with IR image in full screen or picture-in-picture views) for easy identification and reporting of problems
  • Rugged and reliable: Engineered to withstand a 2 m (6.5 ft) drop
  • 9.1 cm (3.6 in) diagonal landscape color VGA (640 x 480) LCD
  • Temperature range and thermal sensitivity optimized for building diagnostics applications
  • Perfect for any application and budget
  • Excellent thermal sensitivity for seeing even small temperature differences (which could indicate problems)
  • Adjustable hand strap for left- or right-handed users
  • Manufactured in the U.S.A.
