New Fluke Thermal Imagers for building diagnostic applications for less than £3k

12 February 2008

Fluke, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, has introduced the Fluke TiR1 and TiR Thermal Imagers, designed as affordable and complete solutions for building diagnostic and roofing professionals, and restoration and remediation specialists.

Both models incorporate IR Fusion®, a patent-pending technology that integrates infrared and visual (visible light) images in full screen or picture-in-picture views for enhanced problem detection and analysis. Built to withstand harsh work environments, and starting at under £3k, the new thermal imagers are easy-to-use for applications including detection of wet areas in roofing surveys, for energy audits, and other moisture and mould issues in walls, ceilings and floors.

The Fluke TiR1 and TiR feature a three-button menu designed for intuitive operation and navigation with the push of a thumb, plus the ability to record and save voice comments with every image taken (TiR1 only), and on-screen emissivity correction (TiR1 only). With a widescreen full colour LCD display, optimised thermal sensitivity, and a temperature measurement range of -20°C to +100°C, the thermal imagers are suitable for most building diagnostics applications, allowing users to operate from a safe distance and still see small temperature differences. The rugged TiR1 and TiR Thermal Imagers are tested to withstand a drop of 2 metres, and have an IP54 rating to withstand water and dust ingression.

Fluke SmartView™ software (with free software upgrades for the life of the product) is included with each thermal imager. A modular suite of tools for viewing, annotating, editing and analysing infrared images, SmartView software fully supports Fluke IR-Fusion® technology, enabling users to edit images in five viewing modes and generate customised, professional-looking reports in a few steps.
IR-Fusion uses a unique image correction method to exactly overlay the visual and thermal image on top of each other, independent of the measurement distance. This makes it easier to identify details and potential problems by managing and analysing images with complete control over both the infrared and visual (visible light) spectrums. The ability to fuse images on-camera and optimise images in real-time improves primary target identification, enhances issue locating efficiency and offers a tremendous advantage in reporting clarity.

Both the TiR1 and TiR Thermal Imagers include a 2GB SD memory card that will store at least 3,000 basic infrared images (.bmp file format) or 1,200 fully radiometric (.is2 IR Fusion® file format) infrared and linked visual images each with 60 seconds of voice annotation (TiR1 only), as well as an SD card reader (USB) for downloading images into a computer. A durable lens cover protects the unit when not in use and is firmly stored during operation to avoid interference while images are taken. The cameras come with a rugged hard carry case and a soft transport bag, an adjustable hand strap for right- or left-handed use, a rechargeable internal battery and AC power supply/battery charger (including mains adapters). They are available from Fluke authorised distributors. More information about Thermal Imagers and other Fluke products can be obtained via the Fluke UK web site at
