testo’s SiteRecognition technology means measurement sites are automatically recognised and the resulting thermal images are correctly archived. This allows periodical inspection tours to be conducted efficiently.
The thermography of many similar measurement objects, and in particular the correct archiving of the recorded thermal images is a significant challenge in industrial maintenance. The direct allocation of the images on site is important. Because if the images are not allocated until after the completed inspection tour, it can easily happen that an image is allocated to the wrong measurement object. In such circumstances, machines can be diagnosed with thermal irregularities which in fact belong to other objects. The problem becomes even more complex when temperature developments need to be traced over several periods: If the images are incorrectly allocated, error diagnoses are made more difficult, or even impossible.
The SiteRecognition technology of testo 885 and testo 890 saves time and nerves. The measurement site recognition with measurement site management carries out the recognition, storage and management work for the thermal images after a measurement series. Periodical inspection tours can be conducted efficiently and all thermal images then precisely analysed on a PC, simply identifying the measurement sites with markers on the measurement object, and the imager does the rest.
Other key benefits include:
- Convenient search functions allowing the user to find images quickly and easily
- Increase productivity - Valuable work time can be used for other tasks in maintenance instead of for sorting thermal imagers.
- Uncomplicated direct call-up of comparative images from past periods
