Newark element14 Partners with Fluke to Offer Thermal Imaging Range

Wireless connectivity and the new LaserSharp™ Auto Focus System maximizes productivity in the field

January 23, 2014 – CHICAGO – Newark element14 has announced the addition of the new Fluke Ti400, Ti300, and Ti200 Thermal Image cameras to its Test and Measurement portfolio. This innovative range is designed to help maximize technician's productivity in the field.

The new LaserSharp™ Auto Focus System uses a laser to pinpoint exactly where the camera should focus for precisely focused images, and wireless connectivity to easily transfer images from the camera. Images can then be viewed in Fluke SmartView® software, a professional suite of analysis and reporting tools for optimizing and analyzing infrared images and producing professional reports.

The infrared cameras on the Thermal Imaging range feature patented IR-Fusion® technology, which merges the infrared and visual images into a single view to better discover, diagnose, and communicate problems. With IR-Fusion technology, images can be viewed from full infrared or blended views to a full visible image, allowing the user to precisely document problem areas.

The infrared cameras are Bluetooth-ready and include wireless connectivity to PCs, GPS positioning and recording, streaming video, a ruggedized capacitive touch screen for quick menu navigation, IR-PhotoNotes™ Photo Annotation System, field-changeable rechargeable smart batteries with charge level indicators, and high temperature measurements up 1200°C (Ti400 model only).

The range is designed for a number of maintenance professionals including weatherization specialists, industrial and commercial electricians and energy auditors. The range can be used across industrial plants, government buildings, schools and hospitals as well as residential dwellings. SmartView has recently been made available for mobile, allowing professionals to use the software on the go or in the field.

Chris Godfrey, Director of Test and Measurement, Newark element14, said: "We are delighted to again be partnering with Fluke to supply this new Thermal Imaging range.  Competitively priced, the range has been developed to maximize technicians' productivity in the field. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do at Newark element14, and by adding the Fluke Ti products to our extensive test and measurement range we make it easier for customers to purchase everything they need from one place."
