Product overview: Fluke TiX520 Infrared Camera

Fluke TiX520 infrared camera gives you easier angles with a 240° rotating screen and broader temperature range

The Fluke TiX520 will help you easily navigate over, under and around hard to reach targets with the full 240° rotating screen. You can capture and process images quickly and analyze images in the field on the 5.7 inch responsive touchscreen LCD with on-camera analytics. Save time by editing emissivity, background temp, transmissivity, palettes, color alarms, adjusting IR-Fusion, and enabling/disabling markers all on the camera.

Focus on quality at the touch of a button

With the TiX520 you can instantly get an in-focus image of your target with precision accuracy using Fluke's exclusive LaserSharp® Auto Focus technology. The built-in laser distance meter quickly calculates and displays the distance to your designated target with pinpoint accuracy. This helps ensure that you get the correct image and temperature measurements of the exact target you're inspecting. You can turn your 320 x 240 images into 640 x 480 images with SuperResolution (available both on-screen and in software). And the TiX520 is compatible with optional field installable 2x and 4xs telephoto, wide angle, and 25 Micron macro smart lenses for added versatility.

Save time and increase productivity with Fluke Connect

You can use the Fluke Connect-enabled TiX520 to see, save and share images with multiple remote users from the field simultaneously, with ShareLive™ video call. Fluke Connect connects to the largest selection of wireless test and measurement tools so you can even combine measurements from multiple Fluke Connect-enabled tools and infrared images into one report*. You'll be able to organize your measurements by asset in one location and make better decisions faster than before. *Fluke Connect® SmartView® analysis and reporting software is available in all countries but Fluke Connect system is not. Please check availability with your authorized Fluke representative.
