Testo 875-2 875 2 Infrared Camera / Thermal Imager
The Testo 875-2 is currently the biggest bang for the buck in infrared cameras and thermal imagers.
1. Exceptional image quality (meets BPI/RESNET standards for performance testing)
The testo 875 has a remarkable temperature resolution of 80mK and a large sensor (160 x 120 pixels) providing extraordinary image quality. Testo has utilized enhanced digital image processing to maximize overall image quality on the brilliant color display. With a 280C temperature range the Testo 875-2 doesn't limit you to just building diagnostics.
2. Integrated digital camera
The testo 875-2 includes an integrated digital camera that allows you to simultaneously photograph and capture thermal images of interest.
3. Ability to identify mold risk areas
The testo 875 thermal imager allows you to identify moisture concentrations in building materials and components that could become a breeding ground for mold. The evaporative cooling of damp areas can be spotted at a glance, whether it is created by condensation or water leaks.
4. Automatic Hot/Cold Spot Indicators
Quickly identify the hottest and coldest spots with indicators highlighting the locations on the display. This user selectable feature is included to let you mark and comment on the temperature extremes on the display.
5. USB Video Out
With the exception of the Testo 875, no other camera for less than $6000 offers video out ability. Not only use your infrared camera for work in the field, but also to generate revenue via video marketing and video out for trade show demonstrations.
Common Testo 875 Applications include:
Use the testo 875 to test heating systems and installations
Check heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems quickly and easily with the testo 875. Observe the heat distribution patterns of system components or pinpoint leaks in circulating systems. Perform system evaluations, often without the need to tear open wall or floor sections. Identify and document the problems in easy to understand reports.
Hot on the trail of pipe rupture
If you suspect a pipe is ruptured, the only solution is often to break open whole walls and floors to pinpoint the leak. The testo 875 can highlight leakages of underfloor heating systems and other inaccessible pipe systems exacly with minimal cost of repair and without expensive dismantiling.
Assess problems and defects in building construction
Both the testo 875 & testo 881 meet the requirements for building performance testing as set out by BPI/RESNET. The testo 875 & testo 881 are fast and efficient instruments for the detection of construction flaws like faulty insulation installation, air infusion through walls, windows, roofs, etc., moisture damage and much more. Larger sensors provide you greater sensitivity and detail when performing building audits.
Locate high moisture areas that can become a breeding area for mold!
Quickly highlight thermal bridges that can sap heat away from the living space, cause condensation of the moisture in the warm air and then lead to dangerous mold growth. Detecting the cold areas can identify the problem zones and allow for corrective action. Easily identify hidden water leaks that seep into walls and carpets with the testo 875.
Pinpoint roof leaks.
Inspect flat roofs for moisture penetration with model 875.
Roofing construction materials that have been compromised by moisture retain heat longer than other intact areas. During the evening these affected areas cool unevenly. As a result the 875 detects these temperature differences, and accurately shows the areas on the roof that have a potential for moisture damage.
Electrical Panel Inspections.
Many insurance companies are now requring commerical and industrial clients to have their electrical panels inspected on a bi-annual or annual basis. Infrared thermal imaging cameras can detect potential fire hazards within electrical panels months in advance of a fire.
