Testo 882 Thermal Imaging Camera

Testo 882

Testo 882 Thermal Imaging Camera The Testo 882 scores very high in image performance. I am impressed by the 320×240 image quailty and it is evident that the sensitivity is every bit as good as the stated <60mk. Despite measurement capabilities up to 350°C, the first range is -20 to 100°C, which takes full advantage of this sensitivity which is ... Read More »

Testo 870 Thermal Imager Review

Testo 875-1 Thermal Imaging Camera

Testo 875

The Testo 875 represents the entry level unit in Testo’s range of Building Thermography Cameras. While these units are purpose built for building thermography, they actually perform remarkably well across a whole range of thermography disciplines. With a temperature range up to 280°C the Testo 875 is plenty capable for the majority of electrical and mechanical applications. A key design feature throughout the entire Testo fleet is the -20 to 100°C primary range which keeps the thermal sensitivity sharpest for building thermography. Read More »
