The lightweight Extech i5 is able to monitor and detect the thermal condition of electrical system components to address problem areas before failures occur, and can inspect areas that can’t be reached with thermocouples or other contact-based instruments. High resolution thermal images instantly pinpoint problems in need of repair, critical for condition monitoring of thermally sensitive targets. The Extech i5 delivers high accuracy of 2% and thermal sensitivity of 0.18°F/0.1°C, which provides compliance to NETA testing requirements.
The i5 allows users to check for overheating in electrical panels and transformers, to spot electrical faults before it is too late, and to identify faults in cooling and heating systems, and problems with motors, fans and bearings. The Extech i5’s QuickReport PC software makes it easy to download standard jpeg thermal images with radiometric data, and to generate reports, analyze, and document findings.
At only 12 oz., the Extech i5 is extremely lightweight, resulting in less user fatigue. With its pocket-sized, fully automatic design, even first-time users will find ease of operation, making it perfect for general use. The Extech i5 features focus free lens for convenient viewing, along with a 2.8” (71mm) high resolution color LCD. Its double-molded, rugged design with easy-grip handle construction meets IP43 dust/splashproof standards and its 5-hour continuous operation on a single charge allows for uninterrupted inspections.
The Extech i5 comes complete with a 512 MB miniSD Card with adaptor, Li-Ion rechargeable battery with 100-240V AC adaptor/charger, QuickReport PC software with USB cable and built-in lens shutter and hand strap.
