October 7, 2002 07:47 - ThermaCAM E2 hand-held IR camera finds and documents faults in electronic components, assemblies, and mechanical systems, before they result in design flaws and/or warranty returns. It offers non-contact temperature measurement, and in-field JPEG image storage. Uncooled microbolometer IR detector produces highly sensitive thermal images that can be viewed on camera's 2.5 in. color LCD. Images captured in the field can be transferred to computer via USB and serial port connections.

FLIR's Revolutionary ThermaCAM(R) E2 Infrared Camera Ideal for R&D, Test Applications

Ultra-portable hand-held IR camera visualizes and verifies thermal performance instantly

N. Billerica, MA (August 16, 2002) - The ThermaCAM E2 IR camera, the most compact, lightweight and innovative thermal analysis camera ever developed, finds and documents faults in electronic components, assemblies and mechanical systems, before they result in costly design flaws and/or warranty returns. Affordable and easy-to-use, the development of these advanced, less expensive IR cameras is expected to make IR thermographic technology available to R&D professionals who have not used it in the past, revolutionizing IR inspection across diverse industries for research, quality and manufacturing thermal analysis applications.

Weighing 50% less than any other IR camera, and fitting easily in the palm of one's hand, on a toolbelt, or on a tripod, the ThermaCAM E2 camera features a rugged, light weight and ergonomic design and offers crisp thermal imaging, precision non-contact temperature measurement and in-field JPEG image storage, all at the press of a button. FLIR Systems, world leader in infrared cameras, recently introduced four ThermaCAM E-series cameras, EM, ES, El and E2 each equipped with different features to address varying inspection applications and budget requirements.

According to Thomas Scanlon, Director of Americas Thermography Products, "The ThermaCAM E-series represents an extremely significant advancement in IR camera design and packaging. Never before has sophisticated infrared technology been so affordable. IR inspection is now within reach of more users from test and design engineers to contractors, plant engineers and utility troubleshooting crews. With over 30 years of demonstrated IR inspection successes in R&D, NDT, predictive maintenance, transmission and distribution and power generation, the value of an thermal imaging program is immense, yielding unsurpassed maintenance savings and a rapid return on investment. In fact, many users report immediate payback on their IR camera purchases."

All E-series cameras include a maintenance-free uncooled microbolometer IR detector that produces highly sensitive thermal images which can be viewed on the camera's integral high-intensity 2.5" color LCD. Engineers can highlight and analyze problems, store images and share results with colleagues in the field, lab, or on the factory floor. TV rate (60Hz) imaging lets users quickly scan moving targets and record subtle temperature changes in real-time. Advanced IR technology allows users to freeze the infrared image and make non-contact temperature measurements of any one of 19,000 points on a single image. In electronics applications, the E2 clearly delivers the fastest and easiest way for engineers to accurately determine the true thermal condition of targets.

Not only do ThermaCAM IR cameras help find problems but their instant precision temperature measurements deliver the critical details needed to determine the thermal impact of engineering designs by displaying temperature variances in real-time. Distinguish between components that can compromise design reliability from those operating normally. A built-in Laser LocatIR(tm) helps users associate the IR image displayed with the exact physical location on the target. This innovative feature enhances operator safety by eliminating the tendency to finger point at problem areas.

Images captured in the field can be easily transferred to a computer via USB and serial port connections. The E2 includes free ThermaCAM(r) Connect(tm) software that allows easy downloads of selected JPEG thermal images with measurements. Inspection findings can be documented by simply copying images into any word processing program. High quality thermal images can also be emailed at the push of a button.
