FlukeTi55ft infrared camera: Introduction

The FlukeTi55ft infrared camera is based on IR fusion Technology which captures a visible light image in addition to the infrared image. Smartview IR analysis & reporting software is included inside its box with each purchase along with free software upgrades. For best images, professional technicians prefer this model because it helps in identifying & reporting the suspect components and repair them.

IR fusion technology

Fluke IR fusion technology basically links a thermal image with a real -world visual image. It creates picture-in-picture combinations by merging two images into one, while pinpointing the components with the visible light image, alarm limits can be superimposed over it if it exceeds the specified temperature limit. For use in reports, both the visual & thermal images are available which speed up the documentation by reducing the need to look for individual images taken with a separate digital camera.

Infrared image, Visible Image and blended infrared & visible image

  1. Infrared images: are those images produced as a result of sensing electromagnetic radiations emitted or reflected from a given target surface in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
  2. Visible images: are those images which we can see by naked eyes. The exact original image of any substance which we can view from our eyes is considered as a visible image.
  3. Blended infrared & visible image: considered as combined image of infrared & visible. The IR fusion technology on which this camera based combines an Infrared & visible image into a single instrument so the scene can be viewed and recorded in both visible & infrared radiation. The visible light is corrected for parallax to match the infrared image, so the visible & infrared scene can overlay each other on the camera screen.
With the blended image, if the infrared contrast is low & there is a very little structure in the infrared image you can precisely identify the location of an infrared feature of the interest. As shown in the Figure below you can see how the exact location of the poorly insulated spot on a wall is aided by seeing a small visible mark in the blended image.
