Handheld Thermal Imager: How Cool is That?

by


Ever wanted to know how hot that stove was before you put your hand right on it? Sure, you could use one of those cheap little pocket temperature sensors to tell you the temp, but what are you, some sort of a hilbilly? What you really need is one of these newfangled Splinter Cell-esque imaging cameras.

While it’s not quite as compact as Sam Fisher’s heat-vision goggles, this portable thermal imager goes one better by combining both a visible light digital image with an infrared one, producing single view that lets you get an immediate visual temperature map of whatever you aim it at.

Priced at about $7500, these Fluke thermal imagers are designed for heavy-duty industrial troubleshooting and safety applications, but they’re even better for telling you if the ice cream has thawed or if your mocha latte is cool enough to drink yet.

    I have the Fluke Ti25 and I love it! Very cool features at a price that even small operations can afford. Much more rugged and reliable than the competition. Thanks Fluke!

    I bought a FLIR I5 but am going to sell it. I had a chance to work with the Fluke recently and really like the design. Better resolution and a great display make it a better fit for my thermography business.
