testo unveiled its latest thermal imager offering at National Manufacturing Week 2012. The company's decision to once again exhibit this year is based on previous success where lead generation in concerned.
"NMW is good for lead generation. It’s a great way for us to see what the customers want. It’s also a chance for us to showcase new technologies. Thermal imaging is our main focus this year," says Ash Vaez, sales and marketing manager in the Food and Health division at testo.
The latest testo 890 thermal imager provides the highest image quality, thanks to its 640 x 480 pixel detector, in combination with high quality Germanium optics. It records extremely high resolution thermal images in megapixel quality, that even the smallest objects can be thermographed.
In addition, testo’s SuperResolution technology allows cameras to get four times more pixels, improving image quality by one class. This innovative and unique technology is an upgrade that can be applied to all of testo’s thermal imaging camera range.
"We have SuperResolution technology on all our cameras. The existing models can be updated easily. The technology doubles the resolution of existing models and provides HD, high quality thermal imaging results," says Vaez.
"It is inexpensive and there is no hardware modification required except for a simple firmware update."
Vaez states that the testo 890 has been designed in response to recent demands in the market, particularly in R&D applications.
"There is definitely a need for high definition image quality especially in R&D work. For example, in circuit board research, the camera has the ability to zoom in up to two millimetres from one metre away," concludes Vaez.
