Easier-to-use, makes analysis and reporting simple

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario – October 21, 2008 – Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, today released a new 2.0 version of its SmartView™ software for Fluke thermal imagers featuring the first 3D imaging capability in the industry. The enhanced software gives users new options for optimizing and organizing thermal images and creating professional reports, and is easier to use.

Fluke SmartView 2.0 software is a modular suite of tools for viewing, annotating, editing and analyzing infrared images and creating illustrated, customized reports. It comes standard with all Fluke thermal imagers, and regular upgrades are provided free of charge for the life of the product.

“This software has significantly simplified analysis,” said Al Hobbs, owner of Thermaview consulting in London, Ontario. Hobbs uses a Fluke thermal imager to perform thermographic building energy surveys and electrical system inspections. Producing quality illustrated reports is key to his success. “This SmartView 2.0 software has made report generation easier,” he said. “The images, data and analysis go directly into a .pdf or MS Word document.”

With SmartView 2.0, users can download images captured with any Fluke thermal imager equipped with IR Fusion®, the patent pending process whereby visible light images can be merged with infrared images, making identification and diagnosis of problems simpler. Once downloaded, users can analyze, optimize and organize those images, add notes and comments and create professional-quality reports in a few steps.

Key new features in SmartView 2.0:

• Thermal imaging in three dimensions, an industry first, is included with SmartView 2.0. Patent-pending Fluke 3D-IR™ can make hot spots appear to pop out of the background, so users can easily identify additional problem areas, examine the image from different perspectives, and eliminate false positives. In addition, users can draw a line across an image and automatically create a graph showing temperatures along that line.
• An updated user interface makes the software easier to use. Frequently used tools are easier to access and image-optimization tools are enhanced. For instance, users can now click on just one tab and accomplish what used to require four clicks. And users can now view the Fluke IR-Fusion visible light reference image side-by-side with the infrared image.
• New and enhanced reporting capabilities enable users to output reports directly in Microsoft Word or PDF formats. They can now use familiar MS Word tools to modify and add details to the report or check spelling. And users can now customize or create and save report templates to meet their specific job requirements.

Users who already own Fluke thermal imagers can upgrade to Fluke SmartView 2.0 by visiting the download page.

CatNet Systems Fluke thermal imagers have many applications in a multitude of industries. New thermal imagers from Fluke, including the Fluke Ti25, Fluke Ti10, Fluke TiR1 and Fluke TiR Thermal Imagers, deliver more durability and performance at a lower price than ever before, bringing the benefits of thermography to the toolboxes of everyday technicians, contractors and building inspectors.

Fluke IR-Fusion Technology
IR-Fusion technology facilitates real time pixel-for-pixel merging of infrared and visual (visible light) images together on a single display. IR-Fusion captures infrared and visual (visible light) images and simultaneously displays the images fused together, adding a new dimension of detail that saves time and money and best conveys infrared information of each specific application and environment.

IR-Fusion makes it easier to identify details and potential problems by managing and analyzing images with complete control over both the infrared and visual spectrums. The ability to fuse and optimize images improves primary target identification, makes it easier and quicker to locate problems and offers a tremendous advantage in reporting clarity.
