    With the testo 885, Testo has developed a professional thermal imager which combines comprehensive functions for building thermography in an ergonomic housing.

    Discover all the features of the testo 885 thermal imager

    • Detector size 320 x 240 pixels: with 76,800 temperature measuring points, measurement objects are clearly and accurately captured in outstanding image quality
    • SuperResolution Technology to 640 x 480 pixels: this feature takes the image quality to the next level – making the resolution of the thermal images four times higher
    • Integrated digital camera with power LEDs: ideal for assigning thermographic images to real images and thus for creating perfect documentation for customers
    • User-friendly operation: ergonomic rotating handle and rotatable, fold-out display
    • You can also choose to save thermal images as JPEGs

    Practical features of the thermal imager specially for building thermography

    • Large field of view with selection of the standard lens (30°): with this wide-angle lens, large image sections are immediately recognized, and the temperature distribution of the measurement object recorded at a glance. (This kit gives you the choice between 3 lenses: standard, 25° or telephoto lens)
    • Panorama image assistant: in the case of large measurement objects, the panorama image assistant enables analysis and documentation of the measurement with an overall image compiled from multiple individual images. So there is no need to manage, view and compare a large number of images, which can be laborious. It enables images of entire building shells
    • Special measuring mode for detecting areas susceptible to mould: the dewpoint in the room is calculated by manually entering the ambient temperature and humidity. The dewpoint is then compared with the surface temperature value measured by the camera. Traffic light colours shown on the display (red, yellow, green) then enable readout of the mould risk. The radio humidity probe included in the kit makes things easier: automatic transmission of readings means that manual input of humidity and ambient temperature is no longer needed

    Further advantages of the thermal imager

    • Lens exchange possible (Additional lenses can be ordered as an option. Choice between standard, 25° and telephoto lens)
    • Lens protective glass (optional)
    • Auto-focus
    • Minimum focus distance 10 cm
    • Voice recording with headset
    • Analyze thermographic readings directly on the PC with the testo IRSoft professional software


    In this kit, you are free to choose between one of a total of three lenses:

    30° x 23° standard lens:
    • Ideal for inspecting closer measurement objects
    • Large field of view
    25° x 19° lens:
    • Ideal for use in applications involving preventive maintenance
    11° x 9° telephoto lens:
    • Makes it possible to take outstanding images of measurement objects at medium and longer distances
