Fluke thermal imagers for preventative maintenance


Fluke thermal imagers for preventative maintenance

Fluke has launched two rugged thermal imagers the TiS55+ and TiS75+, suitable for carrying out preventative maintenance.

Fluke thermal imagers for preventative maintenance

Designed for one-handed use, the infrared inspection tools capture professional, high quality images of hot spots on machines and factory equipment, ensuring potential problems are caught before they lead to failures.

Both the TiS55+ and TiS75+ provide a Sharp, clear view of potential issues, and can be used by customers with no infrared imaging experience.

Able to store around 500 images, the TiS55+ and TiS75+ come with built-in personal assistants that organise captured images and offer increased functionality by enabling users to add their own information.


Key features include:

Voice annotation – Users can record instant notes with up to 60 seconds of voice recording for each thermal image.

IR-Photo Notes – Users can add visible light photos to the thermal image file and use those as a reference when analysing results.

Asset Tagging – Users can scan a QR code on an asset to automatically organise and file thermal images. This eliminates data-entry errors by saving measurements directly from the camera and associating them with the asset record.

The imagers are water and dust resistant (IP54) and have been engineered to withstand a two-meter drop. Both devices are powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, offering up to three and a half hours of continuous use.

Users can also set their own colour alarms, setting a maximum or minimum temperature threshold to highlight a particular hot spot or area of interest. The TiS55+ and TiS75+ include wireless connectivity, allowing users to easily connect with PCs and portable devices such as iPhones and iPads.

To aid collaborations with other maintenance staff, measurement data can also be shared using ShareLive video calls and emails. Users can save time and improve the reliability of their maintenance data by wirelessly syncing measurements using the optional Fluke Connect system.

The equipment maintenance software allows assigning images to assets automatically (via asset ID from camera) or manually and allows creation of work orders and easy comparison between different measurement types, such as mechanical, electrical or infrared images.

The Fluke TiS75+ offers even greater functionality. The wide field of view enable users to capture the full scene, even in tight spots. It can also record up to five minutes of radiometric video to get a picture of temperature variations over time.

In addition to alerting about hot spots, the TiS75+ thermal camera detects areas at risk of moisture damage using a new dew point calculation feature. Once dew point is calculated, the camera will display the Dew Point Colour Alarm.

Everything the camera displays that is at the dew point temperature and below will display as a thermal image. Everything above will display as a visual light image.

This allows users to identify where condensation is occurring, and a scale of how far objects are below the dew point.
