Ideal Industries HeatSeeker Thermal Imager

An affordable thermography solution for the predictive maintenance of electrical and mechanical systems is being introduced with Ideal’s new HeatSeeker Thermal Imager. Less cumbersome to use than traditional thermal imagers, the handheld HeatSeeker was designed to meet the stringent standards for performance set by professional electricians, engineers and building inspectors.

The Ideal HeatSeeker incorporates an Auto Hot/Cold Tracker, a new technology that automatically pinpoints the hottest and coldest temperatures within a single screen by highlighting both with dual cursors. Just a quick scan of the Auto Hot/Cold Tracker immediately identifies current or potential problems, such as overloaded circuits, inefficient heat transfer, moisture leakage, or fluid distribution for a stuck valve. By locating potential malfunctions before they become critical the HeatSeeker lowers maintenance costs.

For superior accuracy in the field, HeatSeeker captures a “real” digital photo of the subject that is then blended with a full infrared picture to provide added detail to the image under review. Depending on the complexity of the image, the technician can choose to blend the digital photo with 25%, 50% or 75% infrared to better identify suspected components. The digital image and the thermal can also be shown simultaneously in the display. The combination of the Auto Hot/Cold Tracker and digital/thermal blending qualifies the HeatSeeker for a wide variety of applications, improving its versatility and value.

Operating the HeatSeeker does not require specialist training. Once an image is captured, technicians simply move toggles to navigate the tracking cursors across the LCD screen to measure surface temperature variations ranging from -10°C to +350°. A full 2,209 temperature measurements can be viewed live on the LCD with an accuracy of ± 2°C or ±2% of reading in °C, whichever is the greater. Images can be saved to evaluate all temperature points, as well as marked with text and live voice recordings. The provided ThermalVision software makes it easy to view, edit or analyze images on a PC, as well as to generate detailed inspection reports.
