April 14, 2008

Wahl Instruments Inc. announces the addition of a new Hot Spot Finder to its line of Wahl Heat Spy® Thermal Imaging Cameras. It is the ideal tool for all users wanting temperature measurement and display, at an affordable price. The model HSI1200 offers features not found in other cameras for under $2,500. Designed for self-contained use, the camera finds hot spots easily and fast. This innovative new camera, encased in the same impact resistant housing as our HSI3000 Series, provides the user with a real-time thermal image for quick fault detection combined with a center spot, non-contact temperature measurement function. A trigger activated laser pointer insures pinpoint identification of hot spots. Report writing software allows the user to easily insert multiple images, with data, taken during a site survey to produce an inspection report. The HSI1200 measures the temperature of all 256 pixels that are displayed on the camera.

This affordable thermal imager is light (1.54 lbs), compact, easy to operate, and designed for hand-held use. It also features a tripod mount for remote use. The HSI1200 Hot Spot finder is used as a detection and diagnostic tool for many industrial, commercial and domestic applications including electrical, mechanical, HVAC and refrigeration. Customers are encouraged to attend FREE training classes at Palmer Wahl, a $450 value, in order to maximize their use of the camera. The HSI1200 features a 16 x 16 pixel array, capable of displaying high-resolution, real time, thermal images on a bright 3.5” color LCD display with backlight. The user may select from among three color palettes: Red-Blue, Green-Blue, or Grayscale. It has a 20° x 20° Field of View, and offers user selectable image integration, emissivity values and reflected temperature. The HSI1200 imageris powered by a long life LI-ion rechargeable battery which is field replaceable and rechargeable.
