New handheld thermal imagers

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon UK has set up a new partnership agreement with Flir Systems UK, a supplier of infrared thermography systems.

Micro-Epsilon will now offer a range of low cost handheld thermal imaging cameras, in addition to its existing range of non-contact temperature measurement products.

The company's thermoIMAGER i series comprises three models, the i5, i40 and i50. The i5 is a compact, lightweight, multi-purpose infrared camera designed to provide engineers with a low cost point-shoot-detect camera. It can measure temperatures up to 250°C, and is able to detect temperature differences as small as 0.10°C. Weighing 340g and with a length of 22cm, Micro-Epsilon claims it is the lightest and most compact camera on the market.

The i5 produces instant, point-and-shoot jpeg infrared images that carry all required temperature data and that can be stored internally or externally, sent and analysed. The camera detects temperature differences across complete surfaces or components in electrical, mechanical and building/office applications. It has a 2.8inch lcd display and a battery with up to five hours of continuous operation.

The i50 has a choice of measurement modes. It has a 140 x 140 infrared resolution and a 2.3mpixel visual digital camera. The camera stores up to 1000 standard jpeg images onto its micro SD card which allows the images to be viewed in other common software applications. The i50 weighs 600g and is protected to IP54 so can be used in harsh industrial environments.

The thermoIMAGER i40 is identical to the i50, except that it has a 120 x 120 pixels resolution infrared camera and a 0.6mpixel digital camera.

All thermoIMAGER i series cameras come with wizard-based reporting software with advanced digital imaging processing and temperature calculation functions.
