The Extech i5 compact, lightweight infrared camera is an easy-to-use, afford able troubleshooting tool for high-quality thermal imag ing and high accuracy, focus-free viewing. The lightweight device includes 5,000-image mini-SD card storage. It monitors and detects the thermal condition of electrical system components to address problem areas before failures occur, even those in hard-to-reach areas. Users can check for overheating in electrical panels and transformers, and identify problems with cooling and heating systems, and with motors, fans and bearings. Features include a 71-mm (2.8-in.) high-resolution colour LCD, a rugged design with easy-grip handle that meets IP43 dust/splashproof standards, and five-hour continuous operation on a single charge.
