The TC7000 Intrinsically Safe Thermal Imager represents the culmination of extensive research and development resulting in the ultimate thermal imaging tool for hazardous area professionals
Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
CorDEX Instruments Ltd., the Global Leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of intrinsically safe inspection equipment, launches the TC7000.
The TC7000 is the world’s first and only fully radiometric, ATEX and IECEx certified, intrinsically safe thermal imager.
The market has been asking for an intrinsically safe thermal imaging camera for use in hazardous areas within several industry sectors owning explosive environments including: Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Mining, Food Processing, Aviation and Marine. Recent studies have shown that to raise a hot work permit - required when non-certified devices are used within hazardous (explosive) areas - can cost companies up to $600USD per permit. An intrinsically safe thermal imager, removes the need for hot work permits as it is certified (ATEX and IECEx) to operate within explosive areas safely, enabling more efficiencies as well as reducing the cost of inspections.
“The release of the TC7000 is particularly exciting when you look at the potential for new levels of safety, accuracy and efficiency offered to personnel performing IR scans on equipment while working within hazardous areas. An intrinsically safe, fully radiometric, infrared imager simply did not exist and we committed to creating a device that is highly accurate, lightweight (under 3 lbs), safe to operate, efficient, and comes standard with the latest features available in imaging devices today,” states Tony Holliday, Managing Director, CorDEX Instruments Ltd.
TC7000 is a fully featured, handheld thermal imaging camera and is ATEX and IECEx certified for the use in Zone 1 hazardous (explosive) gas, dust, and mining environments. The TC7000 can measure temperatures up to 600C and reference each individual stored image to an RFID tag using its onboard RFID scanner. It boasts a full color screen and thousands of fully radiometric files can be stored easily with 8GB of onboard memory and downloaded via USB into the cross platform report and database software provided free-of-charge with every camera.
Holliday continues, "CorDEX Instruments Ltd. has a long history of manufacturing certified, high quality, handheld digital cameras for hazardous areas. The TC7000 Intrinsically Safe Thermal Imager represents the culmination of extensive research and development resulting in the ultimate thermal imaging tool for hazardous area professionals.”
