    FLIR T530 Professional Thermal Imaging Camera

    FLIR T530 In Use

    With an enormous measurement range, high resolution and excellent thermal sensitivity, the FLIR T530 Professional Thermal Imaging Camera is a highly advanced thermal imaging device designed for use across the power generation, electrical distribution and manufacturing sectors. The 320 x 240 pixel thermal sensor provides very clear thermal images and video on temperatures from -20˚C to 650˚C (an optional calibration of 300˚C to 1200˚C is also available) whilst <30mK sensitivity makes allows temperature differences of just 0.03˚C to be shown on screen.

    The principal physical feature of the FLIR T530 is its auto-rotating optical block which swivels through 180˚, thus allowing the user to easily take thermographs and thermal video from above or below the target, perfect for performing inspections in tricky conditions. A range of colour palettes on the vibrant 4” touch screen gives great flexibility whilst MSX® image enhancement can add detail from the in-built digital camera to a thermal image for greater clarity. Time-lapse infrared imaging is another useful feature which allows the user to capture intermittent issues over 24 hours.

    FLIR T530 Inspection

    1-4x digital zoom allows the user to focus in on temperature discrepancies and, once files are downloaded, UltraMax® can be used to further enhance image quality as part of FLIR Vision Processing™. Laser-assisted auto focus ensures the user always has a clear picture and the FLIR T530 also has spot measurement and hot/cold spots. Furthermore, the distance to faulty components can be measured using the camera’s lasers so the user immediately knows the accessibility of an area needing repair. Area can also be measured through the same mechanism to assess the extent of an irregular pattern.

    METERLiNK® connectivity with Bluetooth-enabled FLIR clamps and multimeters allows quantitive data to be shown on screen and saved to the FLIR T530’s memory. Despite its feature-rich nature, the FLIR T530 is intuitive and straightforward in its operation thanks to clever menus and a responsive touch screen and the user can make his/her own observations through voice and text annotations. Files are saved to the supplied 8GB SD-card and images and video can be saved with a GPS tag and time-and-date stamp. Data transfer can be undertaken via USB cable, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi which also permits live video streaming. Radiometric and non-radiometric IR video can be filmed with the camera.

    The FLIR T530 has an interchangeable AutoCal™ lens system which allows the user to share lenses across his/her fleet of cameras, thereby saving money and offering excellent flexibility. The camera comes with a 24˚ or 42˚ lens or, at a higher price, with a combination of those plus a 14˚ lens. A full range of accessories is supplied with the camera including a FLIR Tools+ software package, a USB cable, an SD card and a transport case whilst FLIR’s industry-leading 2-10 warranty covers the camera and its accessories.
