Fluke Ti9 Thermal Imager. The Fluke Ti9 thermal imager detects heat patterns or temperature changes in objects, allowing the user to discover problems prior to costly downtime, or to monitor developing problems so maintenance can be scheduled during a planned downtime or when budget is available. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.The Fluke Ti9 is a high-performance thermal imager that is ideal for troubleshooting electrical installations as well as electromechanical, process, and HVAC/R equipment. The Ti9 delivers Fluke rugged, reliable performance in an imager that is affordable and easy to use.

The Fluke Ti9 delivers crisp, clear images on a large widescreen full-VGA-color LCD display that allows technicians to view the full picture instantly. It features a thermal sensitivity of 0.20 C at 30 C target temperature (200 mK) to identify even small temperature differences that could indicate problems. The Ti9 is built to work in the harshest industrial environments. It has an IP54 rating for withstanding dust and water, and is designed to survive drops of up to 2 m. The built-in cover and lens guard protects the lens when not in use. The thermal imager has an intuitive three-button menu that allows users to navigate with the push of a thumb. They can simply point, focus, and shoot to capture an image.

Fluke SmartView professional IR analysis and reporting software is included with the Ti9. The suite of tools for viewing, annotating, editing, and analyzing infrared images enables users to edit images and generate customized professional reports in a few steps using the report wizard. The Fluke Ti9 Thermal Imager comes with a 2 GB SD memory card, multifunction memory card reader, rechargeable internal battery, ac charger/power supply, adjustable hand strap, soft carrying case, and rugged hard carrying case.
