FLIR Systems has launched the high-resolution FLIR T840, a new thermal camera in the T-Series family.
The FLIR T840 offers a brighter LCD touchscreen and integrated viewfinder to make it easy to use in any lighting conditions.
It is designed to help electrical utility, plant managers and other thermography professionals find and diagnose failing components to help avoid costly power outages and plant shutdowns.
The 464 x 348 resolution camera incorporates FLIR advanced Vision Processing, including patented MSX image enhancement technology, UltraMax and proprietary adaptive filtering algorithms.
This is to provide customers with enhanced measurement accuracy and image clarity with half the image noise of previous models.
The FLIR T840 offers an optional 6° lens that allows professionals to capture accurate temperature measurements on small targets at large distances, such as connectors on overhead distribution lines.
It also features advanced on-camera measurement tools which are unique to newer FLIR T-Series models.
These tools include one-touch Level/Span and laser-assisted autofocus, which enable users to quickly find problems and make critical decisions easily.
With a 180° rotating lens platform, the FLIR T840’s ergonomic design is claimed to help users reduce the strain of full-day inspections and diagnose hard-to-reach components at substations and on distribution lines.
The camera offers rapid reporting features that help users stay organised in the field
Also, Wi-Fi streaming to the FLIR Tools app makes it simple to survey issues in real time, while in-camera GPS automatically tags image files with geolocation data to simplify identification and precise documentation.
