Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) December 1, 2005
Understanding the benefits that thermography can have for the building and home inspection markets, Electrophysics, a leading manufacturer of advanced infrared imaging systems, is proud to introduce the HotShot B-View. The latest addition to Electrophysics’ revolutionary HotShot series of portable thermography systems, the B-View is the ultimate infrared inspection tool as it can help inspectors find and identify obscure defects in typical points of inspection, including electrical hazards, defective insulation, and faults in walls, windows and roofing problems.
A paradigm shift in thermography camera design, the HotShot series represents an entirely new concept in inspection data collection. The HotShot is the world’s first thermography camera with an advanced ergonomic design, integrated data logger functionality and icon-based user interface. The new HotShot B-View, designed specifically for the building and home inspection markets, features a unique articulating thermal camera head that enables inspectors to effortlessly view points of interest from floor level to overhead while maintaining an optimal viewing angle and hand position, even when operating in tight spaces. With the ability to detect temperatures ranging from -20°C to 100°C and with a sensitivity of < 0.1°C, inspection professionals can rest assured that with the B-View, they’ll be able to view even the slightest detail with outstanding quality and precision.
“As home heating prices are already on the rise and are expected to soar out of control, it is as important as ever that professionals in the inspection market equip themselves with the tools necessary to effectively identify problems, especially those beyond the naked eye, that can essentially save homeowners thousands of dollars in the long run,” said Chris Alicandro, Electrophysics Director of Sales – Infrared Products. “With a portable thermography system such as the HotShot B-View, inspections can be taken to the next level as with infrared, areas where heat is escaping or where water has collected, can be easily identified as problem areas,” concluded Alicandro.
The HotShot B-View integrates a high performance microbolometer infrared sensor that delivers sharp, highly sensitive thermal images. It’s easy-to-use joystick control and 3.5” LCD touch screen with on screen control buttons, facilitates the identification of inspection point locations, incident information and observation details that can later be automatically incorporated into reports. Weighing less than 1.8 lbs and featuring a low-power design that will run for 4 hours on a single charge, the B-View delivers a high level of power in a very lightweight and rugged housing. A Compact Flash accessory port provides an industry standard interface for a wide range of existing and future accessory devices including a visible camera, CF memory cards, a WiFi card and a miniature hands-free viewfinder. The USB port and active sync provides an easy method for downloading data to a computer.
Several HotShot models are available featuring application-specific software, extended object temperature ranges, as well as accessories, including both wide angle and telephoto optics. The HotShot is also designed for field upgrades, with the ability to upload new software as new features are added.
