New infrared camera diagnoses hidden building costs: energy losses, air infiltration,
moisture intrusion, pest infestation, mold, fungus
Simultaneous high-resolution infrared and visual imaging, combined with R-value
calculation software, allow detailed reporting and analysis.
January 2006 - Mikron's new 7815B infrared camera is like an x-ray machine for
building diagnostics, identifying a wide range of invisible problems that add
hidden costs to building ownership. The 7815B combines the highest-resolution
microbolometer camera in the industry with a visible light camera and laser target
dot to make professional thermal imaging point-and-shoot simple. It can detect
air infiltration, moisture intrusion, mold, fungus, energy losses, pest infestations,
and other problems. Mikron's ThermalSpection software for R-value calculation,
available as an option, makes it easy to produce clear professional reports, even
calculating heat losses and current R-values of walls, doors, etc.
The value-engineered M7815B is a price-point first with a high-performance 320x240
detector that offers four times the resolution of standard 160x120 cameras, while
still comparably priced at just $16,500. The superior detector resolves an area
smaller than a tenth of a square inch at six feet, resulting in precision temperature
measurement, along with thermal images that are free of pixelating. The combination
of high-resolution IR detector, laser pointer and visual camera capability - never
before available in this price range - enable precise problem identification to
guide workers. The visual camera provides a 752x480 pixel image. Both IR and
visual cameras offer focusing range of 12" to infinity.
The advanced IR detector measures passive radiation emitted by the target and
converts the temperature readings into a two-dimensional image showing the temperature
distribution at the target surface. Thermal images can be viewed in grayscale
or full color, with several color palettes available to allow best definition
Optimized for a working range of -40°C to 120°C, the 7815B is accurate to ±2°C
(±2%). On-board diagnostic software provides an intuitive menu system easily
accessed by pushbutton control panel located on the back of the camera. The camera
can store up to 1300 14-bit images to internal flash memory. A USB 2.0 port allows
images and image data to be transferred to external devices. The articulating
3.5" LCD display gives the operator an optimum viewing angle no matter how the
camera is aimed, and folds down to cover the control panel when not in use.
With an ergonomic pistol-shaped housing and weight of just 2.9 lbs, the M7815B
is designed for easy one-hand operation, but can also be tripod mounted. The
durable housing is dust-proof and weather-resistant, and the camera is highly
shock and vibration resistant.
The 7815B ships with two Li-ion batteries, each good for approximately 2.5 hours
use when fully charged. Accessories include smart battery charger, AC adapter
and DC interface cable, USB cable, carrying case and downloader software.
