Thermal Imaging – an unparalleled technical advancement

In the present scenario, professionals have become very particular and conscious about there working standards and surroundings. Be it a workshop, industry, home or any other application area, setbacks are not acceptable, but are unavoidable too. Temperature differences, instrument failure, heat loss etc, tend to impose operational challenges. Facility owners and managers have successfully tried to curb down these hindrances by implementing Thermal Imaging techniques using a Thermal Imager or Thermal Camera. Thermal cameras are devices that translate thermal energy (heat) into visible light in order to analyze a particular object or scene. Though this instrument has proved out to be the ultimate solution for any application/facility, yet it costs premium to offer the services.

Big Functions yet Small in price 

Considering the high cost involvements in procuring a thermal camera, Testo has taken a step ahead to provide the same high resolution thermal imaging, for which Testo is known, at a considerably low cost. The NEW testo 869 with a wide field of view is light on pocket and can be easily and intuitively operated. This allows heating, air conditioning, ventilation installations or electrical switching cabinets etc, to be tested quickly and easily. Critical temperature conditions are directly displayed using automatic hot-cold-spot recognition. The pro software for image evaluation on a PC is new in this price class. Optionally, thermal images can also be saved directly in the instrument as a JPEG and sent on site. This pocket friendly approach to facilitate the governing and operation of thermal imaging would surely be of great help.

Now measure just with your smartphone

The new generation of Measurement Technology
Measurement – the traditional approach
Almost every industry requires the measurement of certain parameters to keep the processes running. However, the traditional way of measuring various parameters requires a lot of time and effort as the person needs to physically take the measurement by taking the measuring instrument at the measurement location. Furthermore, in case of report generation, some additional time and effort is required as the technician needs to carry the measuring instrument back to his workstation and download the measurement readings and accordingly generate the reports.

Smart measurement - the modern approach

The smartphone makes our day-to-day life easier in almost every aspect. Taking this thought as the idea, Testo decided to integrate the feature of smart working into measurement tasks as well and the result is eight compact measuring instruments which can be connected to the smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, and conveniently and intuitively operated via App. Despite their small format, the Smart Probes are equipped with the market leader's customary pro measurement technology, and are suitable for all important temperature, humidity, pressure and flow velocity measurements.  
The new Smart Probes from Testo are the ideal entry-level instruments for contractors with an enthusiasm for technology and also for measurement professionals need frequent measurements and report generation.

IR thermometer or thermal imager?

Thermal imager or infrared thermometer – when is which worthwhile?







IR thermometer

Thermal imager

Servicing electrical systems



If you only take one-point temperature measurements on clearly delineated areas larger than 2.4 mm, the use of the infrared thermometer testo 835-T2 or T-1 is recommended. With the help of an external probe, both are automatically able to determine the emissivity

of measurement objects. In addition to this, testo 835-T2 can measure temperatures

up to 1500 °C.

If you need to visualize temperature developments,

exactly locate very small overheated contacts, and at the same time present an

overview of measurement objects, then you can rely on the thermal imager testo 875-2i.

Monitoring mechanical loads



With the help of an external probe, the infrared thermometers testo 835-T1 and testo 835-T2 are able to automatically determine the emissivity of measurement

objects. This ensures more precise measurement results, especially when

monitoring moving components in plants.

testo 835-T2 can measure temperatures up to 1500 °C over testo 835-T1

If you need exact information on larger

measurement objects, or if you do not know beforehand where exactly in a system mechanical loads can reach a critical stage, then choose the handy thermal imager testo 870 whose functions were specially developed for use in industrial maintenance.

Measuring high temperature



Do you need to measure temperatures up to 1500 °C reliably and from a safe

distance? Then you need the infrared thermometer testo 835-T2, specially developed

for these requirements.

Your plant only ever heats up to max. 1200°C, but measurements can only be taken from a greater distance? Then rely on the

thermal imager testo 885 with exchangeable

lenses (optional): Standard lens for an overview,

and telephoto lens for precise distance measurements.

Ensuring diecasting quality



With the infrared thermometers testo 835-T1 and testo 835-T2, you can take spot temperature measurements on large diecast parts (e.g. in the automotive industry), gaining valuable insights

into the correct temperature distribution of diecasting moulds. testo 835-T2 differs

from testo 835-T1 as it can measure temperatures up to 1500 °C.

If you wish to test the temperature distribution

over the entire diecast part, you have a choice between the thermal imagers testo

885 and testo 875i. The model testo 885, however, has a larger detector and a better thermal sensitivity. For a more exact testing

of anomalies, a follow-up spot measurement with the infrared thermometers testo 835-T1 or testo 835-T2 is recommended.

Testing compressors



Clearly delineated, larger measurement spots on compressors (5 - 10 cm in diameter, depending on the measurement distance) can be precisely tested even

from a distance with the two infrared thermometers testo 835-T2 and testo 835-T1.

If spot measurements are not sufficient,

or if you wish to have an overview of the complete temperature distribution of a compressor– for example in order to be able to monitor critical components more closely – you should choose the thermal imager testo

870. Thanks to the IRSoft software included in delivery, you can also easily document all measurements carried out with the imager.
