    thermographic camera-gctid340437

    Hi

    First, I am not an expert in handling imager. I had access to and use it quickly occurred to me to check temperatures of engines. They are made ÔÇïÔÇïwith the port engine at 80 ┬░ C and starboard at 75 ┬░ C. Boat in the dock at 1500 rpm, seawater temperature of 12 ┬░ C. At first glance I think the sea water that goes outside, has a low temperature?

    I would like to know opinions. thanks

    Neat, can it record things in F instead of C units? For some of us in the US that is more meaningful.

      rough conversion from F to C - take the C number, double it and add 30.

      So 50*C becomes 130*F (roughly)

        The thermal image looks good but with the engine running at high idle won't tell you much unless you have a serious problem. I think you need to run at a good cruising speed to see anything that might be of concern. What is it in the lower left corner that's at 90 C?

          Wow! and I always used 9/5 times C temp plus 32.

              I have a Fluke Ti32 that I use for thermal scans of electrical switchboards. I have also used it to find all the spots in the house where I am loosing my heat in winter. Have never hit me to shoot a few pics of the boat engines, but I am certainly going to take a few in spring.

                I totally agree. When the weather and sea permitting repeated measurement at full load. Looking at the point of 90 ┬║ C (194 ┬║ F), please find attached photo of port engine with similar temperature

                The camera is a fluke Ti25. If you have more experience with them, sure you can get better performance at the pictures

                  Any idea what a camera like that costs? I can think of a lot of good uses around home and the boat, unless the price is too great.

                      My wife sells them, they are expensive..I personally prefer the infrared temp gun, I can keep it on board takes up little space.

                      Had the camera on the boat but I really did not see a practical useful purpose at the time and that was 8 years ago, back then they were around 10 grand.

                      I'm sure something may come along and might want to consider using it as a trouble shooting tool at some point. But in 8 years and my boat is a 93 , I have found it unnecessary to have one, but I have one at my disposal if needed.

                      Cool camera tho.

                      I did a quick search and find them just over a grand today ( my wife sells the upper end ones, contractors buy them ).

                        I bought the TiR32 about 2 years ago, paid close to 15k for it. Think they are selling now for about 11k. There are cheaper models though, but you most likely will not get a new one for less than about 8k.

                        Sure beats the old one I had about the size of an old VHS camcorder and a belt of batteries around your waist. This one just fits in your hand like a gun.
