Thermal camera for professionals (PCE PCE-TC 3)

Products from PCE Instruments

The PCE-TC 3 infrared camera offers an accuracy of ±2ºC or ±2% within a temperature range of -10ºC to 250ºC.

Product description

At the core of the PCE-TC 3 thermal camera is an uncooled focal plane array with a resolution of 160 x 120 pixels. The camera is ergonomic and easy to use with only one hand. Thanks to its light weight of only 750g, it's ideal for the analysis of machines and systems, for thermographics in construction and many other applications.

The camera offers a measurement accuracy of ±2ºC or ±2% within a temperature range of -10ºC to 250ºC, and with a sensitivity of only 0.15ºC. Two moveable points can be manipulated in situ on the camera's colour display upon which the corresponding temperature is shown. This device also allows the user to automatically see the Hot-Spot and Cold Spot, and can measure the difference in temperature. With these top-of-the-range functions, irregularities can immediately be spotted and appropriate measures can be taken in situ.

The integrated laser pointer allows for the device to be accurately aimed to ensure that the correct area is being measured. Images that are saved to the camera's SD memory card can be transferred to a computer via the USB port or it is also possible to take measurements while the camera is connected to a computer. Software is included and it allows more than just analysis of thermal images: it permits the user to generate reports without extensive knowledge of or experience using the device.
