The compact InfraCAM™ SD provides a high accuracy level of ± 2%. Its thermal sensitivity - better than 0.18ºF - helps pinpoint problems faster and easier, a critical factor when measuring threshold values of thermally sensitive equipment. The large 3.5-inch (89-mm) color LCD with Advanced Signal Processing offers razor-sharp resolution, while the standard 128MB SD card stores up to 1000 Radiometric JPEG images. What's more, all 14,400 thermal pixels of each image can be analyzed using the included QuickReport™ PC Software.
With its built-in Laser LocatIR™ pointer, the InfraCAM™SD can quickly associate the hot spot on the IR image with the real physical target, greatly enhancing the ability to target inconsistencies. Measurement modes are Spot, Area, and Min/ Max; the Area feature identifies minimum or maximum temperature within a designated area on the display. The spectral range is 7.5 to 13µm and the f ield of view is 25° X 25°, at a minimum focus distance of 0.3 meters.
The light weight (19 ounces, including battery) and compact size of the InfraCAM SD help reduce user fatigue. The battery will last for 7 hours of continuous operation on a single charge for uninterrupted inspections . The InfraCAM SD is also extremely durable, and its easy-grip handle construction meets IP54 dust/splashproof standards. The temperature range of the InfraCAM SD is 14°F to 662°F (-10°C to 350°C); it can operate effectively in temperatures ranging from 5°F to 122°F (-15°C to 50°C).
The InfraCAM™ SD comes complete with 128MB SD Card, Li-Ion rechargeable battery with 100-240V AC adaptor/charger, QuickReport software with USB cable, lens cap, hand strap and heavy duty case.
