Power Generation and Distribution
We have developed the testo 883 thermal imager so that the energy supply can be efficiently secured even in times of increasing energy consumption. It not only impresses with first-class image quality, but also with many smart additional features that save valuable time in everyday work. Whether at substations or high-voltage lines - the testo 883 thermal imager detects thermal anomalies reliably, quickly and safely, even from greater distances.
When maintaining power lines, I work from greater distances. With the telephoto lens of the testo 883, I can still get very close with the thermal images.
When inspecting substations, I need a handy and easy-to-use camera. The testo 883 with manual focus is perfect - fast and efficient during operation.
Best image quality and interchangeable lenses.
With the testo 883, you won't miss a thing. Thanks to manual focus, every thermal image is razor-sharp, and with the interchangeable lenses, you can ensure supply and plant safety easily and efficiently, even from greater distances.
The testo 883 thermal imager features an impressive infrared resolution of 320 x 240 pixels – which can even be expanded to 640 x 480 pixels with the built-in testo SuperResolution technology. In addition, you always have full control over the thermal image thanks to the manual focus.
Thanks to manual focus, you always have full control - and crystal clear thermal images. With the telephoto lens, even the smallest thermal anomalies on high-voltage lines can be detected reliably and efficiently from a greater distance.
Applications in power generation
- Maintenance of mechanical components and electrical equipment
- Evaluate heating states in low, medium and high-voltage installations
- Early detection of faulty components or connections
Applications in energy distribution
- Assess heating on disconnectors and circuit breakers from a safe distance
- Non-contact inspection of transformers, insulators and screw connections
- Precisely identify material fatigue and cable ruptures
Further advantages of the testo 883 thermal imager
testo IRSoft professional software
Use the testo IRSoft report wizard to generate professional reports quickly and easily – or use the software’s report designer to create customized templates in line with your own personal requirements. The software can be downloaded free of charge and without a licence.
testo Thermography App – be smart and networked
With the testo Thermography App you can quickly and easily share images from your smartphone or tablet with your colleagues
The testo SiteRecognition technology guarantees fully automatic site recognition, as well as storage and management of the thermal images. This rules out any mix-ups, prevents errors during evaluation and saves time by eliminating the need for manual image assignment.
With touch display and Testo joystick
Keeping limit values safely in view
The hot spot function immediately displays the hottest spot in the image. In addition, points that exceed defined limits can be highlighted in color using the alarm function.
Manual focus for full control and sharp thermal images.
