A pocket-sized thermal imager which targets troubleshooting and precictive maintenance applications for a wide range of industrial sectors is available at RS Components. The PTi120 from Fluke enables maintenance teams to carry out enhanced infrared inspections and make quick temperature scans of electrical equipment, machinery, or specific pumps and motors, thereby helping in the effort to minimise equipment downtime.
A key feature of the fully radiometric unit is its 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen, together with its IR fusion ability, which enables the automatic and simultaneous capture of a digital visible-light image along with an infrared image.
Users can blend the resulting image from full infrared to full visible light by simply sliding their finger across the screen, enabling the fast location of problem areas. Delivering measurement data right down to the pixel level, the unit offers a 120 x 90-pixel infrared resolution for a total of 10,800 pixels.
This rugged device comes in an IP54-rated enclosure, enabling it to resist dirt and water ingress, and withstand being dropped from a height of up to 1m.
Other key specifications include: field of view of 50°(H) x 38°(V); a temperature measurement range from –20 to +150°C, with an accuracy of +/–2°C; and battery life of more than two hours.
When used in conjunction with Fluke’s Connect Desktop software and its ‘Asset Tagging’ capability, users can also scan an asset’s barcode or QR code, which enables the storing of a captured IR image along with date/time information to predefined folders. This data can be sent via WiFi or USB.
Shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions, the Fluke PTi120 comes with a two-year warranty as standard, as well as a USB cable for charging and data transfer, and a soft transport bag and an adjustable lanyard. The Fluke Connect Desktop software and user manual are available free via download
