ThermaCAM E2 Infrared Camera
The ThermaCAM E2 handheld infrared camera weighs just 1.5 lb and offers state-of-the-art thermal imaging, noncontact temperature measurement and in-field jpeg image storage. It is designed to detect electrical and mechanical faults, the leading cause of fires, before they become critical and cause shutdowns.
The camera, from FLIR Systems Inc. of North Billerica, Mass., is designed to provide the necessary measurement detail for determining the true operating condition of electrical targets. The laser LocatIR helps associate hot spots on the thermal image with the real physical target, enabling users to distinguish between the connections that may compromise component reliability and plant safety and those that are operating normally.
The device scans in real time at 60 Hz for inspecting moving objects and recording subtle temperature changes that might signify problems. The images are displayed on an LCD and can be downloaded easily to a PC using the USB port and integrated software.
The company says this affordable camera will broaden the market for infrared thermography by allowing accessibility to new users, including security personnel, building managers, roofing contractors, veterinarians, electricians and marine surveyors.
