Flir Systems has announced the release of the Flir TG297 industrial infrared pyrometric camera, which brings non-contact high temperature measurement and thermal imaging together in one tool. This versatile industrial troubleshooting camera features a unique filter that allows maintenance, repair professionals, and operations inspectors to visually identify and locate the root cause of many common problems in heavy duty applications. high temperature, including furnaces, boilers, refractory equipment and manufacturing.
The Flir TG297 unlocks limitations associated with single-point infrared thermometers by allowing the user to see hot and cold spots indicative of a possible problem and identify the cause. Users can quickly and accurately inspect from electrical connections to mechanical failures using a temperature range of 25 to 1030 degrees Celsius (13 to 1886 degrees Fahrenheit). Typically high temperatures are displayed in white on thermal images, but the Flir TG297 has a removable high temperature filter which improves the dynamic measurement range of thermal data. Once the filter is positioned, users can see color variations that indicate differences at extreme values of the camera's temperature range.
The Flir TG297 is based on the 160 x 120 pixel Flir Lepton thermal sensor and features proprietary Flir image processing algorithms to deliver, according to the manufacturer, superior image quality. Flir's patented Dual-Camera Dynamic Multispectral Imaging (MSXTM) technology overlays details from the integrated visual camera over 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 gigabyte flash memory to show customers that the problem is resolved when the job is done. Equipped with a rechargeable lithium ion battery, the camera offers five hours of continuous use.
The Flir TG297 has an IP54 rated housing, rugged and resistant in harsh environments. It features a laser pointer to clearly indicate the area being measured, as well as a bright LED flashlight for working in dark and hard-to-reach spaces. Using Bluetooth Low Energy technology, users can download data and share images to a mobile device for instant reporting in the field.
