RS Components introduces new thermal camera for automotive diagnosis applications

Integrating leading-edge proprietary technologies, new handheld thermal imager is ideal for automotive maintenance and repair technicians

London, UK, 24 October 2019:

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global multi-channel provider of industrial and electronic products and solutions, has announced availability of a new thermal camera from FLIR, a leading maker of intelligent sensing products for industrial markets. The TG275 thermal camera is ideal for automotive maintenance and repair technicians, helping them to accelerate diagnostic procedures and avoid undetected problems.

Combining non-contact thermal measurement and thermal imaging to help technicians troubleshoot repairs, spot potential faults and record images, the imager is particularly effective for diagnosing problems in relays and switches, parasitic drain on the battery, drive train components and HVAC systems.

Key technical specifications of the TG275 include a 19,200-pixel resolution infrared camera and a temperature measurement range from –25°C extending up to +550°C. The unit also employs FLIR’s MSX® (Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging) technology, which adds visible light details to thermal images in real time. This delivers greater clarity by embedding edge and outline detail on top of thermal readings. This high level of sharp visual detail performed by the unit is displayed on a vibrant 2.4-inch LCD screen.

Other specifications include a 57° × 44° field of view (FoV) and thermal sensitivity of less than 70mK. High temperature measurement accuracy of ±1.5°C features across the +50 to 100°C range, shifting to ±3°C across the –25 to +50°C and +100 to +550°C ranges. The unit comes in a rugged and reliable drop-tested design with an IP54 enclosure that protects the camera from dirt, dust and oil.

The FLIR TG275 is shipping from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
