Fluke TiX560 Infrared Camera, Fluke Corp.Sometimes the infrared images you need to capture are the ones that are almost impossible to take. With a full 180-degree articulating lens and 5.7-in. touchscreen, the new Fluke TiX560 infrared camera allows thermographers to easily navigate over, under, and around objects to preview and capture images with ease. The cameras are ideal for predictive maintenance applications where flexibility and higher resolution are essential.

It has a 5.7-in. responsive LCD touchscreen—the largest in its class with 150% more viewing area compared to a 3.5-in. screen. The large screen enables thermographers to quickly identify issues while still in the field as well as easily edit images directly on the camera, eliminating time in the office, which is time better spent solving the problem.

SuperResolution mode boosts resolution four times so the normal 320 by 240 (76,800 px) resolution of the images captured increases to 640 by 480 (307,200 px) revealing even greater detail to better identify problems that might have been missed with lower resolution cameras. Optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses add versatility to meet a wide variety of applications.

Out of focus images may produce inaccurate temperature measurements that can be off by as much as 20 degrees, making it easy to miss potential problems. To ensure consistently in-focus images, the cameras feature LaserSharp Auto Focus, exclusive to Fluke, which uses a built-in laser distance meter to pinpoint the target, and accurately calculate and display the distance.

The TiX560 is part of the Fluke Connect system—the world's largest portfolio of connected tools—which allows technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from their test tools to their smart phones and tablets for secure storage on the cloud and universal team access from the field.
