Those involved in plant and facilities maintenance can benefit from thermal imaging technology, which is increasingly being used to detect energy loss and building problems.
Infrared cameras have been designed to diagnose mechanical and electrical faults in constructions and products.
However, many applications do not need to be tracked with a fully featured infrared camera. FLIR Systems’ TG130 Spot Thermal Camera has been developed with these in mind.
FLIR’s new infrared camera features its Lepton core, which is the size of a standard smart phone SIM card. This feature ensures that the model is pocket portable, making it readily available for troubleshooting.
Designed for spotting thermal anomalies, the unit can be used to source water leaks and examine heat loss, poor electrical connections and HVAC performance.
To measure the temperature of a surface or an object, users should aim the camera towards it and click the trigger. They will then be able to view the captured image.
After the camera has highlighted thermal irregularities, a more detailed inspection can be carried out.
