Thermal Imaging Camera sales have grown rapidly in the last two years. Until recently, thermal imaging in Ireland was mainly used in firefighting and was very expensive. However, due to recently improved technology, pricing has come down dramatically. Flir, the world’s leading manufacturer of thermal cameras, recently launched a new sub €1000 handheld thermal camera - the first on the market. We also stock a wide range of the Fluke Ti series.
The applications for infrared cameras are numerous and include:
o Research and Development – Infrared cameras are the ideal solution for capturing real-time thermal distribution, allowing engineers to accurately measure heat patterns, dissipation and leaks.
o Building diagnostics – Ideal for both residential and industrial buildings. With the legal requirement for all residential homes to now carry a Building Energy Rating (BER), the Flir I-series is an ideal and well priced camera range for anyone carrying out these diagnostics. The Flir B and T-series provide a much more comprehensive and in-depth analysis, where more detail is required.
o Plant maintenance – The lightweight Flir E-series is ideal for predictive maintenance and the planned maintenance of any electrical or mechanical systems. The large LCD touch screen is ideal for detecting overheated cables, fuses and, as one of the prime providers of quality measuring instruments in Ireland, you receive readings that you can rely on.
Flir has also developed a range of software products to enable more detailed analysis on a computer, or even an iPad. The BuildIR software package is ideal for analysing building structures and makes a firm supportive argument regarding the ingenuity of Flir.
