Imager pinpoints hottest and coldest temperatures

27 January 2009

Ideal has launched the HeatSeeker Thermal Imager for the predictive maintenance of electrical and mechanical systems. Less cumbersome to use than traditional thermal imagers, the handheld HeatSeeker was designed to meet stringent standards.

The HeatSeeker incorporates an Auto Hot/Cold Tracker, that automatically pinpoints the hottest and coldest temperatures within a single screen by highlighting both with dual cursors. Just a quick scan immediately identifies problems. By locating potential malfunctions before they become critical, maintenance costs are lowered.

The HeatSeeker captures a digital photo that is then blended with a full infrared picture to provide added detail to the image under review. Depending on the complexity of the image, the photo can then be blended with 25%, 50% or 75% infrared to better identify suspected components.

Operating the HeatSeeker does not require specialist training. Once an image is captured, technicians simply move toggles to navigate the tracking cursors across the LCD screen to measure surface temperature variations ranging from -10°C to +350°.

The HeatSeeker has a Class II laser, with a built-in LED illuminator for use in poorly lit areas, a removable handle, and adjustable emissivity to improve accuracy.
