Most Valuable Product

Fluke Corp., Thermal imaging scanner

Flukeā€™s TiS Thermal Imaging Scanner is designed for retrofit and new construction analysis done by engineers who use thermal imaging to detect flaws in construction, such as the common problems of air gaps from faulty insulation and window/door installs. By sensing minute differences in temperature and using color to create a thermal picture of those differences, a buildings expert can immediately detect structural flaws. The TiS has a large screen and features like manual focus that allow the user to capture multiple kinds of shots and angles. It provides complete thermal temperature data for every pixel on screen.
