The FOTRIC 340 Series is globally one of the most advanced thermal cameras to date whose quality is guaranteed by the top-end hardware from Lynred, Qualcomm, Xilinx, and TI. They are designed to detect early signs of building issues, identify hot spots, troubleshoot electrical and mechanical systems, and prevent problems before causing damage that leads to expensive repairs.
Advanced features bring rich applications
1. Building Inspections
The thermal sensitivity of 0.03°C can detect minute temperature differences to locate water leaks or heat losses in buildings.
Moreover, FOTRIC fusion capabilities can enhance the image contrast to highlight building issues in a visual image by blending with a semi-transparent thermal image.

In addition, a laser ranger can measure the distance from the inspection target and the area value of the user-specified area with ROI measurement tools (region of interest).
Area1 is 2.995m2 and the distance is 12.36m in a building inspection image
A picture-in-picture function can be used to display a resizable and movable thermal image superimposed on the visual image to highlight targets like manufacturing equipment.

The FOTRIC Turbofocus Speedy Intelligent System consists of thermal graphic contrast auto and manual focus, continuous focus, and laser-assisted focus that help take vibrant images efficiently in equipment maintenance.

3. Solar panels
A resolution of up to 640x480 can see the temperature distribution of solar panels from a distance clearly for detecting defects that show up as hot spots or cold spots.

A measurement temperature range between -20° to 1550°C is practical for defect detection in harsh industrial environments particularly in steel plants or kilns without interrupting the workplace running.

5. Electric utilities
With FOTRIC TWBTM (Thermal White Balance), thermal images can be displayed more obvious and finer-textured, helping operators identify targets in scenes with wide temperature spans that usually darken the cooler regions e.g. the AC contactor for switching the transformer goes from dark to light when turning TWB on.

Further, the FOTRIC IRedgeTM helps display a sharper edge of the target contour to better distinguish from the background (e.g. the distribution transformer goes from blurred to clear when turning it on).

Lens options ranging from 7°, 12°, 25° to 44° are enough for both distant targets like transmission towers and wide view purposes such as transformers and other components in a substation.

Besides, with ROI measurement tools such as spots, lines, boxes, and polygons, users can easily discover the defect of electrical components by comparing the temperatures in different ROIs.
