FLIR thermal imaging boosts company’s performance and competitiveness

  • 5 Oct 2018

FLIR‘s T640 thermal imaging camera and Test & Measurement Tools in combination with METERLINK® have recently proven to be invaluable tools for an Italian consultant service.

Corrado Ciuti, the owner of the EN ISO 9712 certified professional practice Termogramma, relies on a full range of feature-rich tools and from the FLIR T640 thermal imaging camera, to high-tech clamp meters and moisture meters, the tools Ciuti employs are compatible with FLIR Tools+ software so he can provide the highest quality services. Corrado Ciuti is a demanding professional who finds FLIR’s solutions to offer the best balance between the abundance of features and actual product performance.

It is no coincidence that Corrado Ciuti, dba Termogramma, is increasingly offering consultancy services that provide thermal measurements as a proactive measure.

A broad range of useful features

0Termogramma’s customers are in several fields, starting with construction. The thermal imaging tools enable Ciuti to identify the source of water leaks, pinpoint problems in the thermal insulation systems or threats to the safety of buildings. 

Photovoltaics is a rapidly growing field for Termogramma. “My services are requested both to comply with statutory certifications requirements and to assess existing installations,” adds Ciuti. The thermal imaging cameras allow Ciuti to check the panels and other components for defects and malfunctions, starting with transformers and disconnectors.

Ciuti has always supported the FLIR brand, he comments: “I started out in my profession with a FLIR E6 thermal imaging camera and as my working complexity increased, I added the model FLIR T640, which is currently the spearhead of my equipment range.”

The FLIR T640 is equipped with METERLiNK® technology, which allows Ciuti to append inspection data to thermal images or send it directly to the FLIR Tools App on a mobile device. With this added technology, Termogramma can further specialize in predictive analysis in the electrical and photovoltaic fields to support requests for tax benefits.

The data collected using the FLIR CM85 clamp meter and the FLIR MR77 moisture meter can be sent directly to the camera via the METERLiNK Bluetooth connection, eliminating the risk of human error and saving valuable time. “With the same equipment, in buildings and homes, we can measure humidity and temperatures so as to block the source and spread of mould and condensation,” says Ciuti.

By choosing the FLIR T640 Termogramma achieved a higher level of thermal imaging investigation and unparalleled advantages. “The T640 combines high resolution with high sensitivity, factors that make a difference in my work,” he says. In addition to these services, the company is also equipped with a range of accessories and features that help improve Termogramma’s work also during particularly complex investigations. Features such as the touchscreen or the possibility of adding information and voice annotations raise the FLIR T640’s efficiency to the highest level. “It takes a lot of time to carry out checks and take notes during measurements,” Ciuti explains.

Moving towards thermal imaging 4.0

To complete their instrumentation, Termogramma has chosen to upgrade to the plus version of FLIR Tools, the software that provides thermal imaging professionals with a complete set of controls, all in an effective platform that can generate highly detailed reports on the work done.

While the standard version can be downloaded from the website, FLIR Tools+ adds value to FLIR products with presets and templates to produce the documentation required. Ciuti explains, “FLIR Tools+ interfaces with the Microsoft Office suite, to enrich and accompany reports. The plus version also makes it possible to create dynamic radiometric videos and, with its panorama functionality, can show a single scan of large surfaces such as the façade of a building, which is a very useful feature in the construction industry.”

Termogramma recently achieved second level UNI EN ISO 9712 certification, after Ciuti attended a course offered by the Infrared Training Centre (ITC). As the infrared training arm of FLIR Systems, the ITC provides practitioners with the qualification required by European regulations and needed to offer services in this field.

Through ITC, FLIR offers one- and two-day introductory courses or first, second and third level certification courses which have allowed Ciuti to certify his professional background to do his job better.
