Introduction
Introduction
Thank you for choosing the IR FlexCam® portable infrared camera (hereafter,
“Camera”). This award-winning Camera offers some of the most advanced yet
most intuitive, fully-radiometric solutions available. The visible light camera
module (VLCM) and IR Fusion functions (on select models only) make it
easier than ever to manage and analyze images captured with this system and
improve reporting abilities. The unique control image and IR Fusion
technology enables you to combine visible light images—like a normal digital
camera—and infrared images together to create a single image with greatly
enhanced detail. This is especially helpful in low contrast scenes where the
temperature differential is minimal and the infrared image appears to be all one
color.
The IR FlexCam is available in 4 models. The Ti40 and Ti45 cameras uses a
detector with 160 x 120 resolution. The Ti50 and Ti55 cameras use a detector
with 320 x 240 resolution. Refer to Appendix D for specific features available
on your camera.
Your Camera is powerful and easy to use in a wide range of applications
including:
Predictive Maintenance
•
Electrical Systems—Identify circuit overloads before they happen.
•
Mechanical Systems—Reduce downtime and prevent failures.
•
Utilities—Monitor substations, transmission lines, etc. efficiently and
accurately.
Building Science
•
Roofing—Detect and isolate water saturation quickly and efficiently.
•
Building Envelope—Perform commercial and residential infrared energy
audits.

Introduction
Safety Information
1
A WCaution identifies conditions and actions that could damage the camera
or cause permanent loss of data.
WCaution
•
To avoid damaging your Camera, treat it with care as you
would any type of precision equipment.
•
Your infrared camera is a precision instrument that uses a

towards highly-intense energy sources—including devices
that emit laser radiation and reflections from these
devices—may adversely affect camera accuracy and may
harm or permanently damage your camera’s IR detector.
•
Your camera was calibrated prior to shipping. We
recommend that you have your camera checked for proper
calibration every two years. Some ISO 9000 programs
require more frequent checks for certification. Contact
Fluke for details.
•
Your camera requires three minutes to warm up before
accurate measurements are available.
*WWarning
•
Your camera contains a Class 2 laser pointer. See diagram
in Appendix B for laser aperture location.
•
To avoid eye damage, do not point laser directly at eye or
indirectly off reflective surfaces.
•

Camera Overview
Introduction
Your Camera is a compact, lightweight system that offers a generous five-inch
display module you can position for optimal viewing. You can also rotate the
lens module to easily capture target images on ceilings, hidden above high
objects, under low obstacles, or in other hard-to-reach places. In addition, you
can position the camera for comfortable desktop image analysis and can mount
the system on a standard tripod to continuously monitor a single location.
Although your Camera is a sophisticated imaging system with many advanced
functions, it is easy to operate using buttons, mouse-controlled menu options,
or a combination of both.
The visible light camera module (VLCM), available on select Camera systems,
adds a 1.3 mega pixel visible light sensor that improves your ability to identify
and analyze thermal anomalies and to provide visible light control images for
your reports.

Setting Emissivity and Background
Temperature
Setting your camera with correct emissivity and background temperature
values is critical to making accurate temperature measurements.
Emissivity values on your camera and saved images are adjustable between
0.01 and 1.00 with increments of 0.01. This value, along with the background
temperature and target radiation measured by the camera, is used to calculate
target temperatures. Use the table in Appendix C, which lists the emissivity
values of some common materials, as a guide to setting correct emissivity
values.

Changing Color Palettes
Although all of your camera’s color palettes can be used with any image, you
may find that some color palettes work better than others for analyzing images
depending on the situation.
You can change the color palette prior to capturing images and can change the
color palette of images already saved on the memory card.
Two methods are available to change the color palette. Use the MOUSE
controller to position the pointer over the color palette on the display screen
and repeatedly press E to cycle through the 8 color palette options.
Or, use the menu system as follows:
1.
Tap F.
2.
Use the MOUSE controller to position the pointer over Image Settings on
the popup menu and tap E.
3.
Position the pointer over the Palette tab and tap E.

Position the pointer over desired color palette option and tap E.
6.
Tap the TRIGGER button to accept setting change and return to scan
target mode.
Setting Temperature Level and Span
The color palette is available to help you visualize the relation between
temperature and color. Setting the span to the narrowest range possible
provides the highest quality images.
When using the manual or automatic level and span function, if the center box
function is enabled, the temperature updates are done based on the
temperatures in the box, not the entire image. Using this feature, you can
exclude an area in the image that is very hot or very cold but of little interest.
Manual Level and Span
When you press the LEVEL & SPAN button, your camera takes the current
coldest and hottest temperatures from the scene and sets the palette range
4-3
Ti40, Ti45, Ti50, Ti55
Users Manual
minimum and maximum limits so that everything in the scene is scaled
between the minimum and maximum temperature if the target temperatures are
within the camera’s currently selected calibration temperature range. If the
target temperatures are outside the currently selected calibration temperature
range, the target is displayed in the saturation color for the current color palette
(see Using Palette Saturation Colors later in this chapter).
Note
Be sure the temperature calibration range is set properly. See Setting
the Temperature Calibration Range in Chapter 6). If you have enabled
the center box marker (see Chapter 4), the color palette is adjusted
based on the minimum and maximum temperatures in the center box,
not those in the rest of the image.
To manually adjust the color palette temperature span, tap G as needed. Be
sure the “Manual” function is enabled (refer to the procedure under Automatic
Level and Span).
Automatic Level and Span
When you enable the automatic level and span function, the color palette
temperatures are regularly updated to the current maximum and minimum
temperatures in the image at a time interval you set (from 1/4 second to 10
seconds).
To enable automatic adjustments of the color palette temperature span:

Using Palette Saturation Colors
The palette colors of your Camera are mapped to temperature measurements.
When you set the color palette level and span, the full color range is used to
display the image. This same temperature color mapping is maintained until
you set the level and span again.
After setting the level and span, if the camera measures a temperature greater
than the palette maximum temperature and/or a temperature lower than the
palette minimum temperature, the image pixels with these temperature
extremes are displayed at the ends of the color palette. These pixels are called
saturation colors. The standard saturation colors, described in Table 4-1,
appear on the ends of the color palette bar and enable you to quickly see when
temperatures are outside of the current range.

Using Display Screen Temperature Markers
You can annotate images with various types of markers to help you interpret or
analyze images. For example, you can highlight particular areas of interest in
an image or highlight critical objects whose minimum, maximum, or average
temperatures must be in a particular range.
Use the following basic marker options:
•
Four standard spot temperatures: hot, cold, and center points each marked
with a crosshair and the mouse pointer location, marked by the tip of the
pointer.
•
Maximum, minimum, and average temperatures for the center box.
You can enable these markers to appear on the display screen in scan target

Annotations
Note
This feature is available on Ti45 and Ti55 models only.
Adding Annotations to Saved Images
Your Camera enables you to add notes, or annotations, to your infrared images.
An annotations file named “notations.txt” is located in the camera memory. If
you store an annotations file on the memory card, your camera recognizes the
annotations file on the memory card first. The “notations.txt” file contains a
predefined list of available annotations and annotation categories.
An annotation is a textual description that can be attached to an image. You
can use annotations to store extra information with an image such as where the
image was captured, what equipment is represented in the image, and who
captured the image. All annotations must be a member of an annotation
category. An annotation category is a grouping of similar annotations. For
example, the annotation category “Equipment” may contain the annotation
items “Fuse,” “Breaker,” and “Disconnect.”
When you insert the memory card into your Camera, the annotation file tells it
what annotations can be applied to an image captured with the camera. You
can add the categories and annotations to saved images.

Using Image Alignment
Image alignment is an automatic adjustment that occurs as you focus the
infrared camera lens. The visible light image and the infrared image are lined
up based on the focusing distance of the infrared lens so that they may be
combined for viewing and analysis. The visible light image and the infrared
image are lined up for distances greater than 50 cm (approximately 2 ft).
Focusing
Prior to capturing images using the visible light module and IR Fusion, it is
important to make sure the target object is in focus. As you rotate the infrared
(IR) lens to focus the camera, if the IR blend is less than 50%, the IR Fusion
blend level changes to 50% infrared and 50% visible light (VL). Once you
have the target object in focus and stop rotating the IR lens, the IR Fusion level
returns to your setting. You can focus the infrared portion of the image only;
the focus of the VL portion is set at the factory.
To focus the camera, remove the IR lens cap, point the lens at the target, and
manually rotate the infrared lens with your finger. Focus by aligning the edges
of the IR and VL images.
Adjusting IR-VL Fusion Blend Level
Note
This feature is not available on the Ti40.
You can change the IR Fusion blend level from full infrared (IR) to full visible
light (VL) or some combination in between. When the IR Fusion blend level is
set to full IR, 100% of the image is IR. When the IR Fusion blend level is set
to full VL, 100% of the image is VL. When the IR Fusion blend level is set
somewhere in the middle of full IR and full VL, an appropriate amount of the
image is IR and an appropriate amount is VL, thus displaying a fused—or
blended—image.
To adjust the IR-VL Fusion blend level using the level & span button and
mouse controller:

Using Full Screen or Picture-in-Picture View
In the full screen view, the infrared (IR) target object image takes up the entire
display screen using the IR Fusion blend setting you have selected. For
example, if the IR Fusion blend setting is Full IR, then the infrared image is
displayed. If the IR Fusion blend setting is Full Visible, then the visible light
(VL) image is displayed. If the IR Fusion blend setting is somewhere in
between, this image blend is displayed. Temperature values are available on all
areas of the display screen. The centerpoint, centerbox, and hot and cold points
are available in full screen view, and user-defined point and box markers are
fully editable in this view.
In the picture-in-picture view, the fused, or blended, infrared/visible light
image appears in a rectangle in the center quarter of the display screen. The
visible light image appears in the rest of the display screen. The centerpoint,
centerbox, and hot and cold points are available in the picture-in-picture view.
User-defined point and box markers are fully editable in this view.
Temperature readings are available only within the infrared image area. The

Using Torch Control
When working in darker areas, you can enable the torch function to provide
better lighting. If the flash is not enabled, but the torch function is, the torch
remains on during image capture. The torch operates at approximately 50%
power continuously; the flash operates at full power the instant the image is
captured.
Note
The torch can be enabled at the same time the flash is enabled. If both
functions are enabled, the torch operates continuously, while the flash comes
on during the image capture. The torch enabled function times out after 60
seconds. Limit torch use to save battery power.
Assign the Torch function to a programmable button (see Chapter 2). Then, to
cycle between torch on and torch off, tap A,B, or C as needed.
Using Visible Light Flash
When working in darker areas, you can enable the flash function to light the
target object and capture better-quality visible light images. When the flash is
enabled, it operates with one burst of light when an image is captured (the
moment the image is paused).
Note
The flash can be enabled at the same time the torch is enabled. If both
functions are enabled, the torch operates continuously, while the flash
comes on during the image capture. The torch function times out after
60 seconds, and it can also be turned off by pressing the assigned
function button again. The flash does not time out.
To enable the flash:

Recording Visible Light Images
With the visible light camera module, you can simultaneously save both an
infrared image and the corresponding visible light control image. However,
you may not want to save the visible light image along with every infrared
image you capture; a visible light image captured with the infrared image takes
up much more space on the CompactFlash memory card. You can enable or
disable the record control image function as needed.
With this function enabled, both the visible light and the infrared images are
captured. You can view the images using the Full IR or Full Visible settings or
blended in between. With the record control image function disabled, only the
infrared image is saved.
Note
The setting to either record or not record control images is governed
by the setting to enable or disable the visible light camera module
(VLCM). The VLCM must be enabled to capture a visible light control
image; see Enabling/Disabling Visible Light Camera Module earlier
in this Chapter).

the blend level setting for each image file.
Using Color Alarms
Note
This feature is not available on the Ti40 or Ti50.
The color alarm function allows you to highlight target object areas of thermal
interest by selectively fusing the visible light image with portions of the
infrared image. For example, you can specify a temperature range. Then, any
target object temperatures either inside or outside of the range, depending on
what you set, are highlighted in the infrared color that corresponds to that
temperature (based on the color palette settings).
You can choose to highlight temperatures either inside or outside of the range
specified. You can also choose to highlight only temperatures above or below a
threshold setting.

Camera Care
Cleaning the IR Lens, VLCM, Display Screen,
and Body
For optimal performance, your Camera should be treated with care and gently
cleaned as needed. You should always take great care whenever you touch the
lens or display screen. The lens elements are made from Germanium crystal
and easily can shatter or be scratched and chipped, and the liquid crystal
display (LCD) screen is sensitive to excess pressure. To protect your Camera,
replace the lens cap and store the camera in the case when you are not using
the camera.
WCaution
To avoid damaging your camera, use compressed air to
remove large particles and dust prior to using a cloth.
To clean the IR lens and the VLCM lenses and windows:
•
Lightly rub the lens with a soft cotton cloth slightly moistened (not
dripping) with a non-abrasive solution marked for lens cleaning or a mild,
diluted dish soap solution (never use solvents).
To clean the display screen:
•
Lightly rub the display screen with a clean computer monitor cleaning
cloth.
To clean the camera body:
•
Lightly rub the camera body with a clean, slightly damp cloth. Dampen
the cloth in a solution of water and a small amount of mild soap if needed.

Glossary
Background Temperature
The temperature of the surroundings, as seen by the target object. In practical
terms, this is often considered to be the ambient or room temperature. When
outdoors, this can be a very difficult value to estimate, due to the effects of
very hot (the sun) and cold (clear sky) objects. By paying careful attention to
the location of and direction from which an object is photographed, the effects
of very hot and cold objects in the background can often be minimized.
Blackbody
A blackbody is a theoretically ideal radiator and absorber of energy at all
electromagnetic wavelengths, i.e., a completely non-reflective object. The term
comes from the fact that a cold blackbody appears visually black.
Color Palette
Color representation of the temperatures (temperature scale) in a displayed
image.
Electro Static Discharge (ESD) event
A single-event, rapid transfer of electrostatic charge between two objects,
usually resulting when two objects at different potentials come into direct
contact with each other. ESD can also occur when a high electrostatic field
develops between two objects in close proximity.
Emissivity
The ratio of the actual emitted radiance to that of an ideal blackbody at the
same temperature. In practical terms, this means that objects with lower
emissivity will be more affected by background radiation.
FAT or FAT16 file format
Stands for File Allocation Tables. Most computer operating systems store
computer files by dividing the file into smaller pieces and storing those pieces
in separate clusters of a hard disk, floppy disk, or Compact Flash memory card.
The FAT file system allows an operating system to keep track of the location
and sequence of each piece of a file, and also allows the operating system to
identify which clusters are unassigned and available for new files. When a
computer user wants to read a file, the FAT file system also reassembles each
piece of the file into one unit for viewing.

Infrared Spectrum
The portion of the electromagnetic spectrum immediately adjacent to visible
light; approximately from 0.7µm to microwave.
Infrared Camera
Electronics, lens, and detector combinations that give the user an image, that
can be viewed or recorded, of energy in the infrared spectrum.
Infrared, Thermal
The portion of the infrared spectrum from which the majority of heat energy is
recorded. This portion of the electromagnetic spectrum is defined as 3µm to
microwave. However, the majority of infrared imaging occurs between 3µm
and 14µm.
Isotherm
In general scientific terminology, an isotherm is set of lines on a thermogram
that marks points that are of the same temperature. Your Camera modifies this
definition somewhat to mean: an image that highlights the set of all pixels that
lie within a specified range of temperatures.
Level
The center value of the color palette (temperature scale).
NTSC
The National Television Standards Committee (NTSC) sets the analog
television standard for the United States; this format itself is also informally
called “NTSC.” While a standard for the United States, NTSC format has been
adopted in other countries as well, including Korea and Japan.
PAL
Phase Alternating Line is the analogue video format used in television
transmission in most of Europe—except France, Bulgaria, Russia, Yugoslavia,
and some other countries in Eastern Europe, where SECAM is used—Australia
and some Asian, African, and South American countries.
Palette Temperatures
Maximum, center, and minimum temperatures (temperature scale) of the color
palette.
Radiometric
The ability to measure thermal energy—or temperature—and display it back to
the camera user.
Reflected energy
Any energy that does not radiate directly from the target object.

Saturation Colors
The ends of the color palette used to display temperature extremes, for
example., a temperature greater than the palette maximum temperature and/or
a temperature lower than the palette minimum temperature.
Span
The temperature range across which the color palette (temperature scale) is
mapped.
Target
An object being thermally photographed.
Temperature Scale – The temperatures represented by the color palette
(palette temperatures).
Thermography – The use of infrared thermography whereby temperatures of
a wide variety of targets can be measured remotely and without contact. This is
accomplished by measuring the infrared energy radiating from the surface of
the target and converting this measurement to an equivalent surface
temperature.
Thermogram – An infrared image.
