Fluke Introduces TiX560/TiX520 Infrared Cameras
With a full 180-degree articulating lens and 5.7-inch touchscreen, Fluke TiX560 and TiX520 Infrared Cameras allow thermographers to navigate over, under and around objects to preview and capture images. The responsive LCD touchscreen offers 150% more viewing area compared to a 3.5-inch screen, according to Fluke. The large screen enables thermographers to quickly identify issues in the field and edit images directly on the camera.
SuperResolution mode boosts resolution four times so the normal 320 x 240 (76,800 pixel) resolution of images captured increases to 640 x 480 (307,200 pixels), revealing greater detail to better identify problems that might have been missed with lower resolution cameras. Optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses add versatility to meet a wide variety of applications.
To ensure consistently in-focus images, the cameras feature LaserSharp Auto Focus using a built-in laser distance meter to pinpoint the target, and accurately calculate and display the distance. The cameras also feature Fluke IR-Fusion technology with Picture-in-Picture, full visible light and AutoBlend modes for easier identification and reporting of problems. On-board analytics allow users to adjust or enhance images right on the camera without additional software. Fluke SmartView software provides a suite of tools to view, optimize, annotate and analyze infrared images, and generate fully customizable professional reports.
TiX560 and TiX520 are part of the Fluke Connect system of connected tools that allows technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from their test tools to their smart phones and tablets. The cameras are suited for predictive maintenance, R&D, oil and gas, and utility applications where flexibility and higher resolution are essential.
