element14 Introduces Thermal Imager Range from Keysight

element14 has introduced the Keysight U5850 Series TrueIR thermal imagers which provide clear and sharp thermal images with its unique 4x fine resolution capability, enabling 320x240 pixels at the cost of a 160x120 pixels device.

Two new models in the range, the U5856A and U5857A, can perform temperature measurements up to 650°C and 1200°C respectively. 

This enables a wide temperature range for a variety of applications such as petrochemical or steel processing, electrical and mechanical applications, building maintenance and even electronics applications.

As the trend in industrial settings has moved towards predictive maintenance, the U5850 series allows technicians and engineers to efficiently and safely detect abnormalities without shutting down the system. The manual focus feature also allows users to focus on an object as close as 10 cm away so that problems such as small cracks in industrial pipelines can be detected even faster.

This combination of features enables more in-camera measurements and diagnostic checks, with 0.07 °C sensitivity. Each model is also compact, lightweight, and ergonomic with an easy-to-use customisable colour palette and configurable quick access buttons to easily change settings with one hand.

The devices allow monitoring temperature changes through image logging and temperature trending capabilities and other features include a laser pointer, visible image camera, flashlight, focus adjustment ring, camera trigger key, DC power inlet, video out port, USB mini-B port, SD card slot and adjustable strap (for right-handed or left-handed use), large 3.5” colour LCD display and the range is offered with a standard product warranty of three years.

The Keysight U5850 range is available from Farnell element14 in Europe, Newark element14 in North America and element14 in Asia Pacific.
