Fluke TiX560, TiX520 cameras boast largest touchscreen in class
By Renée Francoeur
June 29, 2015 – With a 180-degree articulating lens and 5.7 in. touchscreen, the new Fluke TiX560 and TiX520 infrared cameras allow thermographers to navigate over, under, and around objects to preview and capture images, according to Fluke. The cameras are ideal for predictive maintenance, R&D, oil and gas, and utility applications where flexibility and higher resolution are essential, the company says.
The TiX560 and TiX520 feature a responsive LCD touchscreen — the largest in its class with 150% more viewing area compared to a 3.5 in. screen, Fluke stated.
SuperResolution mode boosts resolution four times so the normal 320 x 240 (76,800 pixel) resolution of the images captured increases, to 640 x 480 (307,200 pixels). Optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses also help meet a variety of applications.
The cameras feature LaserSharp Auto Focus, exclusive to Fluke, which uses a built-in laser distance meter to pinpoint the target, and accurately calculate and display the distance, the company said. The cameras also feature Fluke IR-Fusion technology with Picture-in-Picture, full visible light, and AutoBlend modes. Also included is Fluke SmartView software.
