Flir Systems has announced the release of the Flir TG297 industrial pyrometric infrared camera, which combines non-contact high-temperature measurement and thermal imaging in a single tool. This versatile camera for industrial troubleshooting features a unique filter that enables maintenance, repair and operations inspectors to visually identify and find the root cause of many common problems in high-temperature applications, including furnaces, boilers, refractory equipment and manufacturing.
The Flir TG297 frees users from the limitations associated with single-point infrared thermometers, enabling them to see the hot and cold spots that indicate a potential problem, and identify the cause. Users can quickly and accurately inspect everything from electrical connections to mechanical faults, using a temperature range from 25 to 1030 degrees Celsius (13 to 1886 degrees Fahrenheit). Typically, high temperatures are displayed in white on thermal images, but the Flir TG297 features a removable high-temperature filter that enhances the dynamic measurement range of thermal data. With the filter in place, users can see color variations that indicate differences at the extremes of the camera's temperature range.
The Flir TG297 is based on the Flir Lepton 160 x 120 pixel thermal sensor and features Flir's proprietary image processing algorithms to deliver, according to the manufacturer, superior image quality. Flir's patented MSXTM (Multispectral Dynamic Imaging) dual-camera technology superimposes details from the integrated visual camera onto fully thermal images to enhance sharpness and perspective. The visual camera can also capture visible images with integrated thermal measurements. Users can save up to 50,000 images with 4 gigabytes of flash memory to show customers that the problem has been solved once the job is done. Equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the camera offers five hours of continuous use.
The Flir TG297 features an IP54-rated housing, rugged and resistant in harsh environments. It features a laser pointer to clearly indicate the area being measured, plus a bright LED flashlight for working in dark, hard-to-reach spaces. Thanks to Bluetooth Low Energy technology, users can download data and share images to a mobile device to create instant reports in the field.
