Klein Tools Thermal Imagers – A Hot Tool with Cool Features

The human eye can only see so much and while that is still amazing, sometimes seeing a bit more can make life so much easier. Thankfully there’s a tool, or several tools, that can help you get a different view of a problem and aid in troubleshooting. What are these tools? Thermal Imagers, courtesy of Klein Tools!

Klein Thermal Imager

At the most basic level, Klein’s thermal imagers help you see things in a different light – you’ll be able to tell hot from cold by color and the use of infrared or similar technology. Using this technology, depending on model, you can identify hotspots, hot wires, moisture, clogs energy loss and more. While that’s a basic overview, each specific model has some slightly different capabilities. Let’s check them out!

The first is a dedicated thermal imaging camera (TI250) that’s rechargeable. You’ll get a clear picture of temperatures with 10,000 pixels and you configure alarms for high and low temperature from -4 to 752-Degree Fahrenheit (-20 to 400-Degree Celsius) as well as customize your color palette to enhance visibility. In addition to that, you can save your results to a microSD card making it easy to throw the findings into a report or presentation. When not in use, you can recharge it with the included cable or store it in the included case. There’s also a similar thermal imager (TI290) with 49,000 pixels giving you even more resolution.

The other option for thermal imaging if you don’t want a dedicated thermal imager is to get one that attaches to your smartphone! Whether you use Apple (TI222) or Android (TI220) you can connect the imager to your device and with the associated app you can take thermal images and time lapse videos of hot and cold spots. A high resolution of 10,800 helps you clearly identify temperatures from -4 to 752-Degree Fahrenheit (-20 to 400-Degree Celsius) in three color palettes (ironbow, rainbow, or grayscale).

No matter which option works best for you, you’ll be able to get crisp, high resolution images of temperature differentials making troubleshooting those tricky temperature issues all the more easy. Furthermore, using temperature differences can help diagnose many other problems in ways you probably never thought of.
