FLIR’s TG267 thermal camera helps reduce diagnostic time
By Kavita Sabharwal-Chomiuk
FLIR has launched its TG267 thermal camera for electricians, HVAC/R technicians, building inspectors and mechanical engineers. This addition to the entry-level TG series line provides improved sensitivity and resolution to help cut down on diagnostic time and expedite repairs.
The product allows professionals to inspect equipment and identify problems from a safe distance by visualizing the hot and cold spots that can indicate larger issues. Users can troubleshoot electrical connections and mechanical breakdowns within a temperature range of -25 degrees C to 380 degrees C (-13 degrees F to 716 degrees F) and then provide customer reports with images that document the repair. This model adds contact measurement with a Type K thermocouple probe for temperature readings.
The FLIR TG267 is built using a 160×120 FLIR Lepton thermal sensor and features proprietary image processing algorithms for the highest quality image. FLIR’s patented Multi Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) dual-camera technology combines details from the built-in visual camera over full thermal images for added sharpness and perspective.
The FLIR TG267 features a multipoint laser pointer to clearly indicate the area being measured, as well as a bright LED flashlight for working in dark, hard-to-reach spaces. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology allows users to easily upload images and data to a mobile device for sharing and report generation. The TG267 has storage for up to 50,000 images that users can view on the 2.4-inch colour display. The product includes a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery that lasts for up to five hours of continual use.
