FLIR T400bx Series camera for building thermography
The new FLIR T400bx Series cameras have dedicated functions for building thermography that take guesswork out of image analysis, enabling the early identification of problems.
These latest models retain the excellent ergonomics synonymous with this series and naturally have dedicated functions for building thermography. But they also pack in a range of new and innovative features.
Heading that list on the top-of-the-range T440bx is FLIR’s Multi Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) that produces an image that is rich in detail and texture.
It is particularly helpful in building fabric analysis as the difference between sound and unsound can often be represented by just a few degrees.
The measurement range offered by this new series is -20C to 650C.
Two models complete the new FLIR T400bx Series, the T440bx and the T420bx.
They provide an excellent bridge in the company’s range between the new high performance/entry level FLIR E60bx and low end FLIR Tbx-Series models and the advanced FLIR T600bx Series.
In addition to MSX this new range provides up to 8x digital zoom, auto focus, resizable and moveable Picture-in-Picture, Thermal Fusion and digital camera video recording.
An instant report is easily created in the camera and this can include voice, text and sketch annotations that are applied via the 3.5” touchscreen.
An important FLIR feature continued in this new camera series is exchangeable lenses that greatly extend the application scope.
MSX technology introduced in the new FLIR T400bx Series cameras is the result of FLIR’s continuous development of its unique onboard process that provides extraordinary image details in real time.
MSX incorporates real-time thermal video enhanced with visible spectrum definition and its purpose is to highlight any thermal problems, however small.
This unique-to-FLIR technology ensures easier target identification without compromising radiometric data, ensuring a faster route to the solution.
Market feedback on the FLIR T-Series always praises its ease of use so FLIR has built on this popularity by adding bigger buttons, one of which is programmable, providing easy access to favourite functions.
The T-Series hallmark, the tiltable optical unit, is also included so that the target can be imaged and thermally measured at the most comfortable angle for the camera user.
The FLIR T440bx also incorporates a compass enabling a direction indicator to be automatically added to every image.
FLIR has pioneered the use of wireless connectivity in the infrared market and the advantages of this technology are of course available in the latest camera additions.
Built-in Wi-Fi allows the wireless transfer of images or remote control of the camera via smart phone or tablet PC.
The Bluetooth based Meterlink function additionally allows readings to be transmitted from similarly equipped instruments, such as clamp- or moisture meters, to the thermal image.
In common with all new FLIR thermal imaging cameras the FLIR T400bx Series comes complete with the new FLIR Tools software that enables thermal images to be exported to a PC for basic reporting and analysis of findings.
It allows the flexible handling of the thermal image, the addition of headers, footers and logos and the creation of PDF image sheets.
Naturally the new FLIR T400bx Series models are also compatible with the newly upgraded FLIR Reporter software that provides more sophisticated reporting functions.
FLIR explains how thermal imaging cameras can identify defects in solar panel systems to ensure maximum system life, power generation and the best return on investment. The company discusses ambient and measurement conditions, choosing the right camera, on site considerations and image analysis. Using a thermal imaging camera means panels can be scanned for anomalies during normal operation, unlike other methods of detection.
FLIR Systems has introduced new promotional packs for its Ebx-Series and i-Series entry level troubleshooting thermal imaging cameras.
’Thermal Imaging for Building Diagnostics’, the latest guide from thermal imaging experts FLIR Systems, focuses on building science.
