Fluke Corporation have released a new 2.0 version of their SmartView software for Fluke thermal imagers featuring 3D imaging capability. The enhanced software gives users new options for optimising and organising thermal images and creating professional reports, making it easy to use.
The Fluke SmartView 2.0 software is a modular suite of tools for viewing, annotating, editing and analysing infrared images and creating illustrated, customised reports. The software is standard with all Fluke thermal imagers and regular upgrades are provided free of charge for the life of the product.
With SmartView 2.0, users can download images captured with any Fluke thermal imager equipped with IR-Fusion, the patent pending process whereby visible light images can be merged with infrared images, making identification and diagnosis of problems simpler. Once downloaded, users can analyse, optimise and organise those images, add notes and comments and create professional-quality reports in a few steps.
Key new features in SmartView 2.0 include:
- Thermal imaging in three dimensions: Patent-pending Fluke 3D-IR can make hot spots appear to pop out of the background, so users can easily identify additional problem areas, examine the image from different perspectives and eliminate false positives. In addition, users can draw a line across an image and automatically create a graph showing temperatures along that line.
- An updated user interface making the software easy to use as frequently used tools are easier to access and image-optimisation tools are enhanced. Users can now click on just one tab and accomplish what used to require four clicks. Users can view the Fluke IR-Fusion visible light reference image side-by-side with the infrared image.
- New and enhanced reporting capabilities letting users output reports directly in Microsoft Word or PDF formats. These use familiar MS Word tools to modify and add details to the report or check spelling.
New thermal imagers from Fluke, including the Fluke Ti25, Fluke Ti10, Fluke TiR1 and Fluke TiR Thermal Imagers, deliver durability and performance, bringing the benefits of thermography to the toolboxes of everyday technicians, contractors and building inspectors.
Fluke IR-Fusion Technology facilitates real time pixel-for-pixel merging of infrared and visual (visible light) images together on a single display. IR-Fusion captures infrared and visual images and simultaneously displays the images fused together, adding a new dimension of detail that saves time and money and conveys infrared information of each specific application and environment.
