Thermal imagers from Testo now offer an NETD <50 mK and image overlay TwinPix on a PC.
With their new thermal imagers, the measurement technology specialist Testo AG now offer the best thermal sensitivity in the detector class 160 x 120 pixels. With an NETD < 50 mK in testo 881 and an NETD < 80 mK in testo 875, the thermal imagers from Testo provide highest image quality. The testo 881 is at present the thermal imager with the highest thermal sensitivity in its price segment.
Image Overlay TwinPix
With TwinPix, the PC software IRSoft from Testo offers an additional analysis function for image processing. The thermal imagers with integrated digital camera store an infrared and a real image simultaneously. With the professional image overlay TwinPix, these two images can be superimposed over each other in the PC software. The information from the thermal image and the real image are then displayed together in one image.
By setting marking points which correspond in the infrared and the real image, the images are overlaid exactly. With TwinPix, even scenes with measurement objects at different distances can be blended without a problem, and shown simultaneously in one image.
Using the image overlay, the user can orient himself better in the image, and localize damage more exactly in comprehensive analysis.
This analysis function also offers advantages for better comprehension by the customers of thermography analysis. With TwinPix, a building thermographer, energy consultant or maintenance technician can now support his customer’s understanding by showing him weak spots in buildings clearly in the real image.
