Thermal imagers simplify proactive maintenance

01 March 2021

Fluke has launched two new rugged thermal imagers – the TiS55+ and TiS75+ – which are said to be suited to preventative maintenance applications.

Designed for one-handed use, the infrared inspection tools capture images of hot spots on machines and factory equipment, ensuring potential problems are caught before they lead to failures. Both the TiS55+ and TiS75+ provide a sharp, clear view of potential issues, and can be used withint the need for infrared imaging experience. 

The devices give maintenance teams the opportunity to move away from clipboards and notebooks by adopting a wireless, one-step transfer of measurements. 

Able to store around 500 images the TiS55+ and TiS75+ come with built-in personal assistants that organise captured images and offer increased functionality by enabling users to add their own information. 

The thermal imagers are water and dust resistant (IP54) and have been engineered to withstand a 2m drop. Both devices are powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, offering up to three and a half hours of continuous use. The units include wireless connectivity, allowing for easy connection with PCs and portable devices. 

The equipment maintenance software allows assigning images to assets automatically (via asset ID from camera) or manually and allows creation of work orders and easy comparison between different measurement types, such as mechanical, electrical or infrared images.

The Fluke TiS75+ offers a wide field of view enable users to capture the full scene, even in tight spots. It can also record up to five minutes of radiometric video to get a picture of temperature variations over time. 

In addition to alerting about hot spots, the TiS75+ thermal camera detects areas at risk of moisture damage using a new dew point calculation feature. Once dew point is calculated, the camera will display the Dew Point Colour Alarm. Everything the camera displays that is at the dew point temperature and below will display as a thermal image. Everything above will display as a visual light image. This allows users to easily identify where condensation is occurring, and a scale of how far objects are below the dew point.
