High-performance thermal camera


FLIR Systems has launched the FLIR T840, a new thermal camera in the high-performance T-Series family. The high-resolution FLIR T840 offers a brighter display and an integrated viewfinder to help electric utility personnel, plant managers and other thermography professionals find and diagnose failing components in any lighting conditions, helping to avoid costly power outages and plant shutdowns.

Featuring the award-winning design of the FLIR T-Series camera platform, the FLIR T840 has an ergonomic body, a vibrant LCD touch-screen and a viewfinder, making it easy to use in any lighting conditions. The 464 × 348-resolution camera incorporates FLIR’s advanced Vision Processing™, including patented MSX® image enhancement technology, UltraMax® and proprietary adaptive filtering algorithms, to provide customers with enhanced measurement accuracy and image clarity with half the image noise of previous models.

The FLIR T840 also offers an optional 6° lens that allows professionals to capture accurate temperature measurements on small targets at large distances, such as connectors on overhead distribution lines. Also, advanced on-camera measurement tools unique to newer FLIR T-Series models, such as one-touch level/span and precise laser-assisted autofocus, enable users to find problems quickly and make critical decisions easily.

With a 180° rotating lens platform, the ergonomic design of the FLIR T840 helps users reduce the strain of full-day inspections and diagnose hard-to-reach components at substations and on distribution lines. The FLIR T840 offers rapid reporting features that help users stay organised in the field. Wi-Fi streaming to the FLIR Tools® app makes it simple to survey issues in real time, while in-camera GPS automatically tags image files with geolocation data to simplify identification and aid precise documentation.
