Fluke Professional Series infrared cameras, including the Ti400, Ti300 and Ti200, offer high quality images that can be enhanced with options like laser-guided auto focus and a feature that allows you to blend visible light and infrared images in order to locate target areas.
1. Camera body features
Professional Series cameras are rugged enough to withstand harsh environments and were made to feel comfortable in your hand over an extended period of time. There are no dangling parts to get caught in equipment. The smart battery has a one touch gauge to check remaining battery life without the need to turn on the camera. The camera was also designed to work with optional lenses (2x and 4x telephoto and wide angle) that are easy to attach and don’t need to be calibrated to the specific unit. A focus wheel can be manually adjusted in small increments to adjust for image clarity, or LaserSharp® Auto Focus can be used to collect crisp in-focus.
2. Touchscreen and buttons
The camera includes a touchscreen for access to the menu as well as 3 function buttons (F1, F2, and F3), 4 arrow keys, and 2 triggers that were designed to be easy to use with one hand, even with gloves on. The black trigger controls the LaserSharp® Auto Focus feature, and the green trigger captures an image.
3. Menu functions
The menu functions are available by pressing F2 or touching the screen. Navigate through the menu using the touchscreen or the 3 buttons and 4 arrow keys. Here are some of the most used features in each section:
- Change the level and span, set measurement markers, and adjust emissivity.
- Make adjustments for viewing the image with different palettes, blending the visual and infrared image with IR Fusion with autoblend. You can also add alarms or distance measurement and screen display options.
- Turn on video recording or set the camera to auto-capture images. You can also turn on and off the LED light (torch).
- View the images you have taken, and delete unneeded images.
- Date and time.
- Temperature units (Celsius or Fahrenheit).
- Wireless settings.
- Where images are stored.
- Set file format produced. (Use IS2 for radiometric images that can only be viewed in Fluke software; BMP produces the best quality non-radiometric image and includes the details shown on the screen; you can also change the resolution of the visual light images in the file format image menu.)
Level and Span
Controlling level and span is important to getting better detail in your image. To quickly switch between auto and manual level and span mode, press and hold F1. In manual mode, use the up and down arrow keys to adjust the level and the right and left arrow keys to adjust the span. Press F3 to reset the level and span to the auto level while staying in manual mode to fine-tune it.
