Inspecting a high- or low voltage electrical system when it is fully energised substantially increases the efficiency of the process and FLIR thermal imaging is being widely adopted for this task, according to the company.
It adds that FLIR products’ high resolution provides clear, crisp images and enables the operator to conduct detailed inspections in complete safety. The 640 x 480 pixels array, that is characteristic of the high-end FLIR T- and P-Series, allows the smallest thermal difference to be detected over a long and therefore safe distance.
The FLIR T640 is highly ergonomic and easy to use even when wearing personal protection equipment. Temperature differences of just 0.04°C are easily seen on this model which is the basis of the first of two FLIR Utility Packages.
The FLIR T640 comes complete with a 15◦ telephoto lens that provides 1.7x magnification by comparison with the standard 25◦ lens.
The second of the Utility Packages provides a choice of the FLIR P620, P640 and P660 thermal imaging camera. The model chosen includes a 12◦ lens with 2x magnification than the 25◦ lens.
Both packages are valid until December 31st 2012 and also include a 5-day Level 1 training course organised by the FLIR Infrared Training Centre (ITC) to help ensure the user gets the best return on the investment.
