Prevent system downtimes with Ridgid’s thermal imagers
By Ellen Cools
July 24, 2018 — Ridgid says its new thermal imagers can prevent costly system downtimes and keep buildings running at optimal performance.
The new line includes four thermal imagers — RT-3, RT-5x, RT-7x and RT-9x — that range from providing 160×120 pixel thermal images to 320×240 pixel thermal images. Select models show a digital camera image alongside the thermal image.
The imagers also feature SuperResolution, which doubles the resolution of a camera for saved images using pixel shift technology. The RT-5x, RT-7x and RT-9x also feature e-Assist, which allows the imager to recognize a placed reference sticker, determine emissivity and reflected temperature, and set both values automatically. Finally, those three models are also compatible with Ridgid Thermal App, which allows users to create and share reports, as well as view, edit and analyze captured images on a mobile device.
