    All the important information about the thermal imager testo 883-2

    • IR resolution of 320 x 240 pixels (with SuperResolution 640 x 480 pixels), manual focus and a very good NETD of 40 mK all ensure the best image quality – so you can reliably detect thermal abnormalities in installations and buildings
    • testo IRSoft: Analyze thermal images comprehensively with the intuitive, professional PC software and create impressive reports within a short period of time
    • testo ScaleAssist: Automatic contrast adjustment for objectively comparable thermal images and easier detection of weak spots
    • testo Thermography App: With the App, your smartphone/tablet becomes a second display and a remote control for your thermal imager. You can quickly create, send or save reports on site
    • Wide-angle lens for wider field of view in confined spaces
    • Interchangeable telephoto lens for far distant objects and outdoor recording
    • Manual focus for sharp thermal images from a distance of 10 cm
    • Can be operated via touchscreen and joystick
    • Wireless transmission of readings from clamp meter or humidity probe directly into the thermal image via Bluetooth®
    Further benefits for building energy consultants
    • Produce a professional report quickly and easily: The report wizard guides you step by step through the report creation process using stored standard templates. Or you can use the report designer to create customized templates
    • Clever: The humidity mode visualizes the risk of mould at thermal weak spots directly in the thermal image using traffic light colours (red, yellow, green)
    • Smart: Thermography and live streaming – with the testo Thermography App, your customer can conveniently follow the measurement on a smartphone/tablet
    • Networked: Wireless transmission of readings from the optional humidity probe live in humidity mode – your values are always up to date, e.g. when you change rooms
    • Flexible: Wide-angle, interchangeable telephoto lenses and manual focus for sharper images and more accurate results from different distances
