Thermal imaging at Ecobuild 2012
The latest generation of Flir thermal imaging cameras will be showcased at Ecobuild, taking place at ExCeL, London on 20-22 March 2012.
In combination with application specific software, a Flir thermal imaging camera allows the user to see the thermal effect of building construction faults, insulation failures and moisture ingress.
Any problem areas are easily pinpointed in a single sweep of the camera, allowing appropriate remedial action to be taken.
The building sector accounts for 40 percent of the EU's energy requirements and offers the largest single potential for energy efficiency.
And it is with this firmly in mind that Flir Systems, the world's leading thermal imaging company, has just published its new Green Guidebook.
Copies of this informative publication will be freely available on the Flir stand.
All Flir thermal imaging cameras are subject to continuous development and naturally the latest generation of each series will be showcased at Ecobuild.
Features include new developments in wireless technology that allow the cameras to communicate with other instruments and mobile devices.
Each successive generation also factors in more standard features to enable the thermographer to conduct a survey, quicker and more efficiently than ever before.
Examples from the entire range of Flir cameras for energy management and building fault diagnosis will be demonstrated at the show.
These extend from the hand held troubleshooting models through to the high end Flir B-Series cameras that provide every facility for the professional thermographer.
New at Ecobuild is the Flir Ebx for those wanting enhanced image quality and more analysis functions from an entry level product.
Flir describes this camera as the best value in thermal imaging and digital camera resolution it has ever offered and it is certainly proving a highly popular addition.
Three versions complete this new series with the top-of-the-range model, the Flir E60bx, providing 76,800 pixels from its 320 x 240 uncooled detector.
This enables the user to see more detail and take more accurate temperature readings so that the smallest of thermal anomalies - down to 0.045degC - can be detected.
It allows potential problems to be detected quickly, safely and from further away.
In common with all Flir cameras for building applications, the Flir Ebx Series includes moisture and insulation alarms as standard.
Dependent on the model, the thermal cameras also include picture-in-picture thermal and visual image overlay, thermal fusion that merges both image types, digital zoom and text/voice annotation.
New FLIR Ex and Exx Series thermal imaging cameras for spotting and stopping energy loss will be shown for the first time in the UK at Ecobuild 2014. Offering greater cost efficiency and intuitive performance they provide create an affordable gateway to thermal imaging. FLIR Systems’ patented MSX technology means exceptional quality in real time, plus it adds definition to the image, making troubleshooting quicker and easier.
FLIR’s Exx-Series of thermal imaging cameras has been designed for users who want more than an entry level model but not all of the features synonymous with professional models. Exx-Series models are thermally tunable and manually focusable and feature thermal fusion, continuous zoom, text/voice annotation, WiFi and Meterlink. The range consists of three models – E40, E50 and E60.
FLIR is introducing a special package on its B660 advanced thermal imaging camera which offers cost savings of over £6,000. The package, which includes the camera, a 24° wide angle lens, FLIR’s multi platform, advanced reporting and analysis software, FLIR Tools and the company’s 2-5-10 warranty, is available to professional building inspectors for a limited time only.
FLIR Systems has launched the new FLIR Ex-Series of entry-level thermal imaging cameras which incorporate MSX-technology for exceptional image quality in real time. The FLIR Ex-Series consists of four new cameras which have been designed to be easy to use for those who are new to thermal imaging. The cameras have a fixed focus-free lens and are extremely lightweight, weighing just 575 grams.
Thermal imaging technology can be used to ensure the best possible yield from solar panels. Suppliers can use it to detect shunts which reduce a solar cell’s conversion efficiency and cameras can be employed in the field for inspection use. Solar systems supplier, Solon, uses FLIR’s P-Series camera for shunt detection and FLIR’s T-Series cameras for field inspections.
