The Ultimate in Thermographic Evolution
perfect image quality and measurement precision are crucial to successful work. For the first time, a mass-produced
thermal imaging camera can be used to take pin-sharp thermograms in which the finest details can be identified
– and this is at a resolution of up to 1.2 megapixels.
• Never be annoyed again about washed-out, out-of-focus or pixelated thermograms.
• In the future, you will also produce large-format printouts without irritating blocks of pixels.
•Avoid the need for expensive and heavy telephoto lenses and macro attachments,
thanks to a stepless zoom function up to 8 x.
• Make life easier with simpler operability and ergonomic handling.
