Product Details

Extech IRC130 Thermal Imager IR Thermometer with MSX

The Extech IRC130 Thermal Imager IR Thermometer with MSX is a powerful diagnosing tool, providing access to a spectrum of imagery otherwise inaccessible to the naked eye. Extech have successfully integrated an infrared thermometer, capable of measuring temperature up to 650˚C, with dual visual and thermal cameras featuring patented MSX technology. These paired cameras seamlessly combine to add visible light elements to any 80x60 pixel thermal capture, producing imagery featuring both extreme clarity and an impressive, but easy-to-understand, level of detail.

Possessing a unique coaxial laser, yet another of the IRC130's outstanding features, distance-to-target measuring is enabled at a notable 30:1 ratio. Utilise this laser to pinpoint definitive hot or cold spots and comfortably locate those troublesome areas which may indicate potential issues. Concerning infrared radiation measurement, for an accurate reading the emissivity of any sensor must match that of the surface being inspected. This is not a problem for the practical IRC130, which enjoys an incorporated adjustable emissivity setting. The exceedingly fast 150ms response time of the thermometer allows for real-time temperature updates without the need for inconvenient continuous scanning.

Capable of displaying high-contrast, clear and bright colour pixels, the large 2.4 inch TFT display of the Extech IRC130 imparts dynamic imagery beneficial to the operator. The intuitive, easy-to-navigate menus, displayed across the 320 x 240 pixel screen, are available in 22 languages. Furthering the functional features of this formidable instrument, up to 50,000 MSX thermal and visual images can be captured and stored in a JPG format. Download and transfer this data to your computer with the simple USB interface and USB cable included with the IRC130.

The Extech IRC130 is the ideal device for avoiding electrical and mechanical failures, locating water damage sources, finding missing insulation and troubleshooting automotive repairs. Composed of a rugged sturdy design, drop tested up to 2 meters, an IP54 rating for a splash-proof and dust-proof construction, this thermal imager is assembled to withstand tough environments and a variety of incidents. A built-in LED flashlight adds to practicality, whilst the low battery indicator and adjustable auto power off function aid greatly in conserving the rechargeable lithium ion battery. The lanyard and pouch, with convenient belt loop and shoulder strap, completes an exceptionally effective thermal tool.
