Infrared Cameras Introduce Thermal Image Enhancement Technology

FLIR Systems has unveiled the new FLIR T420 and T440 thermal imagers. These high-performance infrared cameras launch innovative new imaging capabilities that help professionals find and capture problems more easily and with dramatically more vivid thermal images.

The T420 and T440 infrared cameras arm users with infrared imaging resolution that works harder to reveal trouble spots. In addition to sharp thermal resolution at 76,800 pixels (320x240) for accurate diagnostics even from a distance, the new T440 features MSX Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging, a FLIR exclusive. MSX adds the detail of real-time visible spectrum images captured by the built-in digital camera to thermal spectrum images, providing extraordinary sharpness, contrast and clarity previously unavailable in thermal imaging. MSX instantly highlights where the problem area is for easier orientation to help customers and co-workers see what needs repairing.

Other versatile imaging capabilities include scalable picture-in-picture and thermal fusion for easier image identification and added context. To drive home findings, thermographers can also add voice and text comments to images or sketch circles and arrows right on the touchscreen (T440). The T-series’ ergonomic rotating optical block swivels vertically up to 120° making it easy to properly aim at targets without compromising your view of the large 3.5” (89mm) color touchscreen.

Powerful diagnostic tools simplify on-site analysis right from the screen. Analytics include Delta T, 5 measurement and box modes, isotherm and more. The new FLIR Tools Mobile app streams video and connects FLIR imagers to Apple® and Android™ devices for improved client communication. For building-industry professionals, “bx” versions quickly alert users to moisture intrusion and insulation problems with humidity and insulation alarms. The T440 bx also improves documentation with compass heading to improve location information.
