With 1024 x 768 resolution enables you to see even the smallest details
With a 1024 x 768 resolution, you're able to use the 32x on-camera digital zoom to get detailed infrared images from a distance. You can as well call on LaserSharp Auto Focus, autofocus, manual, or EverSharp multifocal recording to save time while capturing consistently accurate images. The large 5.6" high resolution LCD screen enables you to see more detail on each image as well as get high measurement accuracy with 1024 x 768 resolution.
To further enhance your ability to see details from long distances, this tool provides 4x the on-camera pixels in SuperResolution mode, which gives you 2048 x 1536 (3,145,728 pixels) images. You can work from safer distances and inspect areas that you could not get close to any other way and still get spectacular, detailed infrared images.
Compatible with seven optional field installable lenses (2x and 4x telephoto lenses, two wide-angle lenses, three macro lenses each sold separately) in addition to the standard lens.
When conducting infrared inspections, high quality images that allow for better analysis, presentation and professionalism are essential.
With a sharply focused image, there is a distinct contrast between areas of varying thermal energy on the surface being inspected. This allows the individual detector elements (also known as pixels) to clearly report the intensity of the energy being focused on them.
When the focus is poor, the incoming energy isn’t as concentrated on individual detectors, and their response is skewed. This can lead to temperature measurements that are significantly off, resulting in expensive downtime and possible safety hazards.
Thermal imagers are made with 100% diamond-turned germanium lenses covered with a specialty coating, providing premium quality images.
LaserSharp Auto Focus allows you to select and focus on a specific target
Easily choose and focus on your target
LaserSharp™ Auto Focus uses a built in laser distance meter that provides both speed and precision. The laser-driven target detection pinpoints the target while the camera focuses to capture a precise, high quality image. With LaserSharp Auto Focus, you can:
Choose multiple targets at different distances
MultiSharp™ Focus takes multiple images from different focal distances and combines them into one clear image. With a simple point and shoot, you can go from being completely out of focus, to complete focus, throughout the field of view. With MultiSharp:
1.Middleground in focus
2.Foreground in focus
3.Background in focus
Shoot from a distance
Infrared inspections can take you into multiple types of environments with many types of equipment. Interchangeable lenses that require no calibration give you the versatility and the image quality needed to conduct inspections in almost any environment.
High voltage power pole, captured with a TiX560 camera and standard lens
The same power pole captured from the same distance, but with a 2x telephoto lens
The same power pole captured from the same distance, but with a 4x telephoto lens
Whether you are troubleshooting or conducting maintenance inspections, having easy access to more information faster is always a big benefit.
Document information on the equipment you’re inspecting
With IR PhotoNotes™, voice or text annotation, you can easily document critical information about each piece of equipment and its location. Each “note” attaches to the image, so you never have to search or match up notes to images.

Electronic circuits and components come in a variety of shapes and forms. All electronics operate with current flowing, which in turn leads to power dissipation. This power dissipation manifests itself primarily in the form of heat. Hence a key factor in the design, tests, verification and troubleshooting of all electronics, is heat management. With increasing circuit complexity and or reduction in size, heat management of electronics is taking on a more significant role in the design phase and also in the subsequent phases of test, verification and troubleshooting.
Thermal imaging cameras (TI) are an ideal tool to use in mapping out the heat patterns on electronic circuits and components. Two major advantages of Thermal imaging over contact temperature measurement devices are:

Detailed anatomy of an infrared camera
By Sat Sandhu, Fluke
Infrared cameras, also called thermal imagers, are useful for troubleshooting motor problems as well as for monitoring motor condition for preventative maintenance in power generation, manufacturing and commercial plants. Thermal images of motors reveal their operating condition as indicated by surface temperature. Such condition monitoring is important as a way to avert many unexpected motor malfunctions in systems that are critical to manufacturing.
The onset of motor failures can often be detected by a variety of techniques, including vibration, ultrasound and thermal imaging.
Thermal image of machinery
Why thermal imaging?
Thermal imaging is an effective way to assess equipment condition. Thermal imaging enables you to:
What to scan?
To get started in building heat profiles of your motors, it is a best practice to capture good quality infrared images when the motors are running under normal operating conditions. That gives you baseline measurements of the temperature of components. An infrared camera can capture temperatures of all the critical components: motor, shaft coupling, motor and shaft bearings, and the gearbox.
When you are working with low electrical loads, the indications of a problem may be subtle. Thus a minimum of 40% of design load is recommended (National Fire Protection Association NFPA 70B), and the higher the load, the better. When inspecting in low load situations, be sure to note all possible problems, even if they reflect only a small temperature difference. As a load increases, the temperature will increase too and if a problem exists, expect greater temperature differences at higher loads.
Coupling: This image shows an alignment issue on a motor coupling.
The centerline of the two shafts intersect are not parallel.
Combo: This heat pattern indicates an operational motor.
The centerline of the two shafts are parallel but not concentric.
All motors should list the normal operating temperature on the nameplate. Abnormal temperatures, which will show up on a thermal imaging inspection, can be an indication of:
Inadequate cooling because of insufficient air flow. Clearing this issue may only require minor cleaning on the air intake grills.
Power quality issues such as unbalanced voltage or overload or harmonics. All of these will cause excessive heat dissipation.
Impending bearing failure. An overheating bearing is an indication of an impending bearing failure. Bearing condition degrade for a number of reasons:
Insulation failure. With failing insulation of the motor windings the overall motor temperature increases this overheating causes failures and reduces insulation time.
Shaft misalignment. Most misalignment cases are a combination of parallel and angular misalignment (see images above).
Creating regular inspection routes that include thermal images of all critical motor/drive combinations and tracking to those baseline images will help you determine whether a hotspot is unusual or not, and help you verify if the repairs were successful.
