PRESS RELEASE : New Fluke Ti32 Thermal Imager delivers 320x240 resolution for under $9,000

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced the Fluke Ti32 Thermal Imager, designed and priced to deliver unprecedented performance for troubleshooting and preventive maintenance of electrical installations, electro-mechanical equipment, process equipment, HVAC/R equipment and more. In these tough economic times, we all have to do more with less. These new imagers help Fluke customers do exactly that.

The Fluke Ti32 is the first imager on the market to incorporate a powerful 320x240 sensor to provide strikingly crisp, detailed images for under $9,000. Using Fluke's patented IR-Fusion® technology, users can marry high-precision thermal images with visual (visible light) images in full screen, picture-in-picture or blended views for enhanced problem detection and analysis.

IR-Fusion is the only solution available with physical parallax correction, which enables perfect alignment, pixel by pixel, of both infrared and visible images. Fluke products are the only thermal imagers on the market to incorporate IR-Fusion in both camera and software.

The Fluke Ti32 is designed to make thermal imaging affordable and effective in many applications for plant maintenance professionals, production engineers, electricians, HVAC/R technicians and others. Users can record voice comments with every image taken. It includes a three-button menu designed for intuitive operation and navigation, on-screen emissivity correction, transmissivity correction and high temperature alarm.

The combined capabilities of the Fluke Ti32 can help plant and system maintenance professionals reduce energy consumption, strengthen preventive maintenance programs and increase reliability by expanding problem detection, and providing customized reports.

Each unit comes with two field-swappable, rechargeable batteries that enable virtually continuous imager use. Typical battery life is more than four hours each. Optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses are available to bring distant and wide views into sharp focus.

The rugged Fluke Ti32 Thermal Imager is tested to withstand a drop of 6.5 feet
(2 meters), and is IP54 rated to withstand water and dust. With a widescreen, full color LCD display, increased thermal sensitivity (≤0.05 °C at 30 °C target temp.) and a temperature measurement range of -20 °C to +600 °C (-4 °F to +1112 °F).

Fluke SmartView® software (with free software upgrades for the life of the product) is included with each thermal imager. SmartView software is a modular suite of tools for viewing, annotating, editing and analyzing infrared images that fully supports Fluke IR Fusion technology. It enables users to edit images in five viewing modes and generate customized professional reports in a few steps. Fluke 3D-IR™ three-dimensional viewing makes hot or cold spots "pop out" of the background for easy viewing and analysis.

The Fluke Ti32 includes a 2 GB SD memory card that will store at least 3,000 basic infrared images (.bmp or .jpg formats) or 1,200 fully radiometric (.is2 IR Fusion file format) infrared and linked visual images, each with 60 seconds of voice annotation, as well as a multi-function memory card reader (USB) for downloading images into a computer. Each imager comes with a rugged hard carry case and a soft transport bag, an adjustable hand strap for right- or left-handed use, two rechargeable lithium ion smart batteries, a two-bay external charger, an AC power supply, and an interactive training DVD.

The Fluke Ti32 Thermal Imager is designed for inspection and process control applications in many industrial functions, including:

  • Inside electrical distribution and service (switch gear, panels, controls, fuses, transformers, outlets, lighting, conductors, overhead buss, motor control centers and other equipment)
  • Motors, pumps and mechanical equipment (electric motors and generators, pumps, compressors, evaporators, bearings, couplings, gearboxes, gaskets/seals, belts, rollers and other equipment)
  • Process systems (tanks and vessels, pipes, valves and traps, reactors and refractory insulation)
  • HVAC/R (air conditioning, heating, air handlers, compressors, chillers, boilers, furnaces and refrigeration)
  • Outside electrical distribution for utilities (transformers, bushings, insulators, transmission lines, large circuit breakers, service connections, disconnects, capacitor banks and other equipment)

Fluke IR-Fusion® Technology

Patented Fluke IR-Fusion technology captures infrared and visible light images and simultaneously displays the images fused together, adding a new dimension of detail that saves time and money and best conveys infrared information of each specific application and environment. It features multiple viewing modes and allows users to manipulate images right on the camera's display. By enabling users to manage and analyze images with complete control over both the infrared and visible light spectrums, IR-Fusion makes it easier to identify details and potential problems.
