Tablet-sized screen. More details. Faster decisions.

See more details on the tablet-sized 5.7 inch screen, so you can make decisions in the field. Get maximum ergonomics for all day use with the 240° rotating lens. Includes MultiSharp™ Focus that enables you to focus on multiple objects in the image at the same time and LaserSharp® Auto Focus for instant focus on your designated target.

Make decisions in the field
  • See small details in the image and discover anomalies faster on the 5.7 inch tablet sized touchscreen — the largest touchscreen in its class
  • Edit and analyze images on camera — edit emissivity, enable color alarms and markers, and adjust IR-Fusion® visual and infrared image blending
  • Wirelessly sync images directly from your camera to the Fluke Connect® app on your smartphone, and attach to an asset record or work order
Focus near and far in a single image
  • Capture a clear, accurate image focused throughout the field of view with MultiSharp™ Focus. Simply point and shoot—the camera automatically processes a stack of images focused near and far
  • Get an instant in-focus image of your designated target. LaserSharp® Auto Focus uses a built-in laser distance meter that calculates and displays the distance from your designated target with pinpoint accuracy
Inspect hard to reach targets
  • Easily maneuver over, under and around objects with the 240° articulating lens while viewing the screen at a comfortable angle, unlike standard pistol grip cameras
  • See the details you need, even from far away, with interchangeable smart lenses—2x and 4x telephoto, wide angle, and 25 micron macro —no calibration required
  • Temperature measurements up to 650 °C, for higher requirements see the TiX560
  • 180° articulating lens for those tough shots
  • The largest 5.7 inch responsive LCD touchscreen for a 320x240 infrared camera
  • LaserSharp® Auto Focus – utilizing precision laser technology, focus on your target with pinpoint accuracy and get the correct image and temperature measurements you need
  • Built-in laser distance meter – calculates the distance to your designated target up to 30 meters (100 feet) and displays the distance on the image
  • Quick and easy in-field analysis with IR-Fusion® blending technology
  • Connect to the largest network of wireless test and measurement tools with Fluke Connect® (not available in all countries)
