July 29, 2015 - With a 180-degree articulating lens and 5.7 in. touchscreen, the new Fluke TiX560 and TiX520 infrared cameras allow thermographers to navigate over, under, and around objects to preview and capture images.

The TiX560 and TiX520 feature a LCD touchscreen that’s the largest in its class with 150% more viewing area compared to a 3.5 in. screen, Fluke says.
SuperResolution mode also boosts resolution four times so the normal 320 x 240 (76,800 pixel) resolution of the images captured increases, to 640 x 480 (307,200 pixels). Optional telephoto and wide-angle lenses are also available.
The cameras feature LaserSharp Auto Focus, exclusive to Fluke, which uses a built-in laser distance meter to pinpoint the target, and calculate and display the distance.
They also feature Fluke IR-Fusion technology with Picture-in-Picture, full visible light, and AutoBlend modes for easier identification and reporting of problems. On-board advanced analytics allow users to adjust or enhance images right on the camera without additional software.
Fluke says the cameras are ideal for predictive maintenance, R&D, oil and gas, and utility applications.
