With roughly 20,000 measurement values, exactly 160 x 120 pixel data resolution interpolated to 320 x 240 pixel, the testo 880 thermal imager allows reliable diagnoses on a crystal clear, fully-utilised 3.5“ display.
The visibility of even the smallest temperature diffferences is guaranteed by high-quality germanium optics for optimum efficiency in the infrared. With electronics developed and matched for optimum utilization of the detector, and a thermal resolution between pixels [NETD] of less than 0.1 °C, the testo thermal imager provides top-quality, high-definition images.
The standard 32° wide angle lens can be interchanged with a 12° telephoto lens offering the necessary flexibility for adapting the test thermal imager to the dimensions and distances of different subjects. For operation in tough conditions, an IR protective glass, which is made of germanium, shields the lens from dust and scratches.
The low minimum focus distance of 10 cm for small objects is exceptional among infrared thermal imagers. The model 880-3 thermal imager also offers a built-in “standard” digital camera with power-LED lighting allowing real image photography to complement the IR recordings.
Linked using an image-in-image function, the system facilitates fast, secure and easy documentation. The presentation of surface moisture using dynamic humidity measurement and calculation of the parameters for the fast localization of mould risk spots is also unique in the field of building thermography.
Also unique in building thermography is the ability to rapidly locate and quantify areas at risk from mould-growth; by integrating the measurement and calculation of surface-humidity factors with the infrared image.
Easy handling. thanks to the pistol grip also contributes to perfect results. The thermal imager 880 offers one-hand operation using dynamic motor focus with patented technology, and a five-way joystick for navigating both the instrument through the menu and the image gallery. Two programmable fast selection buttons allow rapid access to the most important functions.
Administration of the data is possible either in the camera or via a PC using the included software. Testo thermal imager software allows extensive analysis possibilities and easy report creation. The new testo thermal imager 880 comes in three different versions, each with a range of functions and features tailored to its area of application.
Portable thermal imagers are extensively used in building inspections as well as in preventive service and maintenance. They are used for monitoring building and production and for technical diagnostics throughout industry. A thermal imager may be used for condition monitoring, detecting anomalies, and making the search for errors and facilitating early implementation of correctional measures.
Thermal imagers are used for checking materials and components without damage or even contact, and can expose problem areas before a malfunction can occur. While other methods require production to be halted, or systems to be dismantled, with the new testo thermal imager 880 a single glance is sufficient.
