Price Match Guarantee & Advice

The Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras are high-definition infrared imagers designed to aid with making industrial maintenance decisions, conducting building diagnostic tests and troubleshooting.

Inspecting electrical and mechanical systems for potential problems, such as faulty components, ensures that these issues can be addressed earlier preventing them from becoming critical and reducing both the downtime and expense required for repairs.

The Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras are available in two models with different frame rates:

  • 5085119 - Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Camera – 60 Hz
  • 5085128 - Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Camera – 9 Hz

Ergonomic Design

As these cameras are designed to capture thermal images of overhead targets, as well as IR pictures over, under and around difficult-to-access targets, they are equipped with a 240° rotating (articulating) lens. As a result, the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras can be altered to ensure that they are comfortable to hold and suitable for capturing images of awkwardly located targets.

Furthermore, all the relevant features, functions and settings can be accessed via the 5.7-inch (landscape), LCD touchscreen display, also adding to the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras’ ease of operation.

Edit and Analyse IR Images

In addition to advanced thermal technology (see below), the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras are equipped with a multitude of features and functions optimised for editing and analysing thermal images in real-time, in the field, and on the camera.

For instance, the user is able to adjust the image’s emissivity, as well as apply colour alarms and markers. Via the addition of a rectangular box, the thermographer is able to determine the minimum, maximum and average temperature for a particular area on the image.

Additionally, he/she may attach voice annotations or notes to the image using the IR-PhotoNotes™ function. The thermographer can also alter the colour palette in order to view the heat differences most relevant to his/her application in greater clarity. The Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras feature eight user-selectable colour palettes in standard and ultra-contrast versions:

  • Ironbow
  • Blue-Red
  • High Contrast
  • Amber
  • Amber Inverted
  • Hot Metal
  • Grayscale
  • Grayscale Inverted

IR-Fusion™ Blending Technology

In addition to the aforementioned colour palettes, alarms and markers, the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras feature Fluke’s patented IR-Fusion™ blending technology. This function blends infrared images with visible-light images to varying degrees in order to create detailed thermal pictures.

Fluke Connect Compatibility

As the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras are Fluke Connect-enabled, images, videos and data can be wirelessly synced to the thermographer’s smartphone or tablet via the Fluke Connect App. Once synced, they may be attached to asset records and/or edited, analysed and organised into customisable reports that may be exported to relevant persons via email. This app can also be used to upload information to the Fluke Cloud. Please see the video below for a quick introduction to the Fluke Connect App. 

Additionally, Fluke’s Fluke Connect SmartView Desktop Software (available for free download from Fluke) can be used to view footage streamed from the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras to a PC. The Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras’ footage capture and streaming capabilities make them particularly well suited to monitoring processes.

Further to this, the Fluke Connect SmartView Desktop Software can be used to operate the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras remotely, as well as organise data and thermal media in relation to their corresponding assets. It is also suitable for conducting trend analysis.

Thermal Imaging Technology

The Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras are optimised for versatility and adaptability. They have a field-of-view of 34° (H) x 24° (V) and a minimum focus distance of 15cm.

As standard, these cameras are supplied with an IR lens constructed from diamond-turned germanium with speciality coatings. This lens ensures the camera is equipped with the best optics for transmitting energy in order to create high-quality IR images.

Furthermore, the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras have an IR resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and feature high thermal sensitivity for detecting and displaying minimal temperature differences. The Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras have a temperature range of -20°C to +650°C and can measure temperatures to an accuracy of ±2°C/ 2%.

LaserSharp™ Auto Focus

The Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras are designed to capture clear, high-definition images of targets located at various distances away from the camera. To accommodate this, the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras include a laser-distance meter to calculate the distance from the imager to the target. This value is indicated on the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras’ displays and their focuses are automatically adjusted to accommodate the distance. This ensures that the specified target is captured in the greatest clarity. Please see the video below for further details.

Fluke Infrared Smart Lenses (OPTIONAL)

Compatibility with Fluke’s Infrared Smart Lenses (NOT included), including macro, telephoto and wide-angle lenses, allows the user to adjust the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras for capturing targets of various sizes and distances from the IR imager.

The Fluke Infrared Smart Lenses are automatically recognised by the Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras and so do not require calibration when connected.

The Fluke TiX501 High-Resolution Thermal Imaging Cameras are ergonomic, easy-to-use and eclectic high-definition thermal imaging cameras suitable for various troubleshooting and predictive maintenance applications.
