Looks like a good deal at $4995



We have been considering bringing these on over the past few weeks. I am going for a demo next week.

This might be a stupid question but regarding Fluke and Testo, could I use the Testo IR camera, then download and use those pictures with my Fluke software?

Kevin, how does your fluke store he pics, if is on a SD card you might be able to. If your coming to the meeing tomorrow bring some pics and I’ll put them into my flir software and see what happens.

Like most cameras, both Fluke and Testo can store images in either proprietary or non-proprietary formats like BMP or JPG. You cannot cross-read proprietary images but you can set up either to capture data in a non-proprietary format or convert it after it is captured. When using a non-proprietary format you lose the ability to adjust level and span and retain radiometric validity.

Thermally yours,

Wow----has some great advantages, nice find Gerry.

The Fluke store their images in a .TS format, then you can convert them to whatever format you wish in the SmartView software.

FLIR stores in .JPG.

John worded with proprietary or non-proprietary, I just put it in plain english :slight_smile:

On another note, there is another large company entering the thermal camera business Feb 1st. I am not sure if I can say who it is yet, but I will when I get the go ahead. Their camera, they are only producing 1 at first, is more suited towards industrial applications. I doubt any HI’s will be using it. They went at it a little different way. The extra features on the camera are amazing, but the resolution and thermal sensitivity is weak to say the least. 47x47 and 300mk respectively. Many of the extra features you will not find on a camera for less than 15k. I was shocked when I saw the unit. I was expecting a horrible picture, and it wasn’t. And the thermal sensitivity didn’t seem horrible either, even though it was 300mk.

John what is a “pyro” type detector? I read up on it a little but couldn’t figure out if it had any benefits or negatives to the microbolometers. The engineer told me it is a spinning disk inside the unit. I would think any moving parts would be a big negative, but I could be wrong.

Their unit will be approx $3500 list.

I went to the meeting on Tuesday but nobody showed up. I got back to my office for the first time that day around 8pm and seen that the meeting was canceled. You guys missed some really good spaghetti. All you can eat.:smiley:

Has anyone actually seen one of these?
