SEEK THERMAL ANNOUNCES ITS FIRST AFFORDABLE PROFESSIONAL GRADE INFRARED THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA FOR THE SMARTPHONE
The CompactPRO delivers the thermal imaging sensor quality, features, and software needed by experts and contractors in industrial and commercial building trades at an unprecedented price point of under $500
SANTA BARBARA, CA, JUNE 20, 2016 — Seek Thermal™ announced today the company’s first line of high performance, affordable, infrared thermal imaging cameras for experts and contractors in industrial and commercial building trades. Available soon, the Seek CompactPRO weighs less than 0.5 ounces and plugs directly into an iOS or Android smartphone device for instant connect-and-detect convenience. The CompactPRO is the first thermal imaging camera built for a smartphone to ever feature 76,800 measurement pixels, a thermal sensor array of 320x240, and an unprecedented price point under $500. The CompactPRO is also an innovative game-changer in helping to make thermal imaging technology more easily affordable and available to professionals working in building, electrical, mechanical fields and more.
“Seek Thermal was founded by 35-year industry veterans in the infrared thermal imaging space who believed that the world hugely benefits by making this technology available to all,” said Tracy Benson, CMO/VP of Global Marketing for Seek Thermal. “The industrial and commercial segment has always been an important focus for our company. High performance thermal imaging tools used to be expensive, difficult to carry, and primarily used by few people in large industrial facilities. It is one of the most important sensing technologies that can prevent costly damages, increase productivity, and help avoid dangerous situations in hundreds of applications. If we can make it more affordable to find problems faster and easier with high performance imaging quality in portable size devices, we are succeeding at our mission. Our aim is to fit everyone’s budget and put smart tools into the hands of more people who can really use it.”
The Seek PRO Series is the first low-cost thermal imaging series to hit the market and break the cost barriers for its total capabilities. This provides new users in the commercial building trades and industrial segment the smart toolset they need to identify and locate the problem quickly, saving time on the job. The CompactPRO accurately measures object temperature between the broad range of -40°F to 626°F, with sensitivity levels <70mK, and contains an adjustable focal lens. The CompactPRO also easily stores and transfers all radiometric data into a file format for documenting, cataloging, and post-capture analysis of infrared data.
