Micro-Epsilon UK has set up a partnership agreement with Flir Systems, a supplier of infrared thermography systems, to offer a range of low-cost handheld thermal-imaging cameras.

Micro-Epsilon’s Thermoimager I series, which expands the company’s Thermometer range of non-contact infrared temperature products, comprises three models: the I5, the I40 and the I50.

Priced from GBP1,995, the Thermoimager I5 is a compact, lightweight, multi-purpose infrared camera that requires little training and provides engineers with a low-cost ’point-shoot-detect’ camera, according to the company.

The I5 can measure temperatures up to 250C, while being able to detect temperature differences as small as 0.10C.

The Thermoimager I5 weighs 340g and has a length of 22cm.

It produces instant, point-and-shoot jpeg infrared images that carry all required temperature data and that can be stored internally or externally, sent and analysed.

The camera detects temperature differences across complete surfaces or components in electrical, mechanical and building/office applications, helping to detect potential overheating problems, avoiding costly failures, damage to equipment and energy losses.

The camera has a bright, 2.8in (7.1cm) LCD display and a long life battery for five hours of continuous operation.

For engineers that require a higher-resolution camera, additional functionality and to document their findings, Micro-Epsilon’s Thermoimager I40 and I50 handheld infrared cameras are suitable.

The I50 instrument offers a choice of measurement modes.

It has a 140 x 140 infrared resolution at an excellent sensitivity, as well as a 2.3-mpixel visual digital camera, according to the company.

The camera stores up to 1,000 standard jpeg images onto its micro SD card.

This means that the images can be viewed in other common software applications.

The I50 is also compact and lightweight, weighing 600g.

It is protected to IP54 and, as a result, can be used in harsh industrial environments.

Another feature of the I50 is a new ’picture-in-picture’ image fusion, which enables the user to view an infrared image superimposed on a visual image.

It also includes an integrated laser pointer and light-emitting-diode lamps for inspection in low-light areas.

The Thermoimager I40 is identical to the I50, except that it has a 120 x 120 pixel resolution infrared camera and a 0.6-mpixel digital camera.

All Thermoimager I series cameras come with wizard-based reporting software with advanced digital imaging processing and temperature calculation functions.

Micro-Epsilon can deliver from stock and provides local support in the UK.
