READING, England, March 15, 2016 — Caterpillar Inc. (Cat) has announced the Cat S60, a waterproof smartphone with an integrated thermal camera.
The phone uses Flir’s Lepton Thermal Microcamera Modules to detect heat loss, spot moisture and missing insulation, identify overheating appliances and employ night vision. It can pick up heat and measure surface temperatures from a distance of up to 50 to 100 ft, and see through obstructions such as smoke, enabling a huge range of use cases for building professionals, utility workers, outdoor sports enthusiasts and emergency first responders.
The Cat S60 is also waterproof to depths of up to 5 m for one hour, allowing it to be used as an underwater camera.
