High performance thermal imager

The latest portable thermal imager from Land Instruments International is said to be the perfect instrument with which to identify and quantify thermally related problems around the plant.

Land Instruments International believes its latest portable thermal imager is the perfect instrument with which to identify and quantify thermally related problems around the plant – at almost half the cost of the nearest comparable instrument.

Land Instruments says its new Cyclops TI 814 is a high specification, fully featured camera with a 320 x 240 detector that captures high resolution thermal images within the temperature range -20 to 500 degrees C. An extended temperature range of -20 to 1500 degrees C can be specified as an option.

Thermal images and sound files are saved onto a Compact Flash (CF) memory card then typically transferred to a PC for image manipulation, analysis and report writing. To complete the product package, the Cyclops TI 814 is supplied with LIPS 814 software.

Other features include a laser pointer, motorised focus, extended scene temperature ranges, live wireless video transmission to remote monitors and a detachable telephoto lens option.

Land Instruments believes the working thermographer will find the ergonomically designed Cyclops TI 814 light, compact and easy to use. According to Land Instruments, the user will benefit from simplified controls, simultaneous displays of the thermal image in both the bright LCD display and the colour viewfinder, and the practical advantage of TI 814 being powered by a standard rechargeable camcorder battery capable of more than three hours continuous operation.

In addition to plant condition monitoring, the Cyclops TI 814 can be used to gather and analyse temperature data for structural integrity inspections, quality control, and research and development.
