PRESS RELEASE : Introducing Fluke’s First HD Infrared Camera

Best-ever images from Fluke, with the Fluke TiX Expert Series Infrared Cameras

EVERETT, Wash., Nov. 17, 2014 – Fluke Corporation launches its highest resolution infrared camera ever: the Fluke® TiX Series Infrared Cameras. The TiX1000 (with 1024 x 768 resolution), TiX660, and TiX640 (both 640 x 480) feature up to ten times the on-camera pixels as are available on standard 320 x 240 cameras and a large 5.6-inch articulating display to help quickly identify issues while still in the field. The TiX Expert Series delivers highly detailed image quality, the most advanced focusing options available on one infrared camera, and the versatility to capture accurate measurements from targets that are challenging, dangerous, or moving too fast.

The SuperResolution mode feature on the TiX1000 and TiX660 cameras increase image resolution, when viewed in the included SmartView® software, four times more than what you get on camera. For example, SuperResolution reveals HD quality in the TiX1000 images with 3.1 million pixels. The TiX660 SuperResolution images have 1.2 million pixels. This higher resolution helps better identify potential issues that might have been missed with other infrared cameras.

The TiX Series can also be sub-windowed to 240 Hz frame rate to capture and analyze sudden temperature changes that occur within a second for advanced research and development applications. With eight lens options (two telephoto, two wide angle, three macro, and one standard), the TiX Series can capture images from very close up to long range to meet a wide variety of applications.

The combination of high resolution and telephoto lenses captures detailed thermal images from a safe distance for oil and gas, utilities, and preventive/predictive maintenance applications. The super telephoto lens enables users to inspect areas that they could not get close to before and still capture spectacular, detailed infrared images.

At the other end of the spectrum, these cameras, combined with a macro lens, deliver extreme close-up views in extraordinary detail making them ideal for inspection and analysis for the research and development engineer.

The TiX Series cameras feature the most advanced focus options available on a handheld infrared camera for consistently in-focus images. The EverSharp multifocal recording mode utilizes the focus motor to capture multiple images from varying focal distances with the push of a button. Using advanced algorithms, Fluke SmartView® software combines the images taken from multiple focal distances and creates an image that sharpens the detail of not just the initial focal point, but the elements around the focal point, providing an in-focus image for objects at different distances. This along with LaserSharp® Auto Focus, auto focus, and manual focus provides a variety of methods to capture consistently in-focus images.
