The testo 885 thermography kit. It speaks for itself really

testo 885 thermal imaging camera:

  • Detector size 320 x 240 pixels = 76,800 temperature measuring points, SuperResolution technology for image enhancement to 640 x 480 pixels
  • Process analysis package (optional): a combination of fully radiometric video and sequence storage in the camera enables you to carry out cable free measurements making it infinitely easier to handle the camera at the measurement site
  • Thermal sensitivity of < 30 mK makes even the smallest temperature differences visible
  • Thermal images can be saved as JPEG
  • Twist grip, tilt/swivel display enable you to comfortably take images from almost any angle
  • Wide field of vision: 30° wide angle lens for a wider field of vision
  • Panorama image assistant: enables you to analyze and document complete building envelope images instead of having to laboriously analyze individual images
  • SiteRecognition technology: recognizes similar measuring objects immediately and automatically allocates and archives the thermal images
  • Optional high temperature measurements up to 1200 °C: The high temperature option increases the measuring range flexibly to 1200 °C
  • Special measuring mode for detecting places where there is a particular risk of mold. The dew point in the room is calculated by manually entering the ambient temperature and humidity. The dew point is then compared to the surface temperature which the camera has measured. The traffic light colors (red, yellow, green) on the display show where there is the greatest the risk of mold.
    It’s easier still with the optional wireless humidity sensor: the readings are transferred automatically to the camera so that there is no need to enter the ambient temperature and humidity manually
  • Interchangeable lenses
  • Headset for voice annotations
  • Built-in digital camera with power LEDs for well illuminated real images that go with each thermal image. Makes allocating the thermal images infinitely easier
  • Auto focus for one-hand operation. Cuts out camera shake
  • Minimum focusing distance 4 in.

Checking as part of electrical maintenance

In electrical installations or cables, increased temperatures are always an indication of an overload, an imminent malfunction or an existing defect. Testo thermal imagers facilitate evaluation of the heat status of low, medium and high-voltage systems. Thermographic images lead to the early detection of defective components or connections, so that the necessary preventive measures can be introduced in a targeted way. Thermography therefore minimizes dangerous fire risks and prevents costly production downtimes.
Typical applications for the thermal imager:
  • Checking switch cabinets
  • Checking electrical connections
  • Monitoring and checking photovoltaic systems
  • Checking as part of mechanical maintenance

Monitoring and checking solar energy systems

There are two main reasons for inspecting solar energy systems: safety and performance monitoring. Solar energy systems achieve their top performance in full sunshine. Testo thermal imagers can be used to monitor photovoltaic systems of all sizes in a way that is wide-ranging, contact-free and exceptionally efficient. Malfunctions are detected, the proper functioning of all components is ensured and the greatest possible efficiency is thus achieved. Additional reliability is also achieved through the ability to enter the key measurement parameter of solar radiation intensity: the value entered is stored with the thermal image and is then available for the image analysis.

Analysing building shells at a glance

The task of taking thermal images of large buildings poses several challenges for users. Spatial restrictions due to walls, roads or safety zones around neighbouring buildings can make it impossible to capture the measuring object in a single image. In such cases, Testo thermal imagers help users obtain the necessary overview. The panorama image assistant can be used to combine several images of the building shell taken at close range into a single thermal image. Users can therefore identify thermal irregularities at a glance across the entire building shell with a high degree of detail.

Providing comprehensive energy advice

In building thermography, infrared technology is particularly suitable for quick and effective analysis of energy losses in buildings’ heating or air conditioning systems. Thanks to their high temperature resolution, Testo thermal imagers provide detailed images of inadequate insulation and thermal bridges. They are ideal for the recording and documentation of energy losses on outer windows and doors, roller blind casings, radiator niches, in roof structures or the entire building shell. Testo thermal imagers are the perfect measuring tool for comprehensive diagnosis and maintenance uses, and whenever providing energy consultation services.

Making it possible to see critical temperatures on circuit boards precisely

In the field of research and development, thermal imagers are also used for the targeted analysis of temperature distribution, e. g. on circuit boards. Electronic components on circuit boards are getting smaller and smaller – thus increasing the challenges with regard to heat dissipation. Only premium-quality thermal imagers with a really fine geometric resolution are suitable for this task. Analysis of the heating and cooling behaviour over time is also helpful for optimisation and this can be carried out using the Testo thermal imager's video measurement

Reliable high temperature measurement

Testo thermal imagers adapt to the requirements for applications with high scene temperatures. With the high temperature option, the measuring range can be flexibly extended up to 550 °C . The high-contrast presentation on the display is achieved via the high-temperature iron HT colour palette or the special histogram adjustment.
