The Long Distance model of Wahl Heat Spy Thermal Imaging Cameras offers narrow angle 9.1 degree by 6.8 degree field of view optics, which enables detection and temperature measurement of small objects over long distances.

The imager also features a tripod mount for remote use. It is especially suitable where long distance temperature measurement is required, such as in the power utilities industries, for the inspection of substation and overhead distribution and transmission lines. It can also be used as a detection and diagnostic tool for condition monitoring of electrical and mechanical systems, building diagnostics, energy audits, law enforcement, and research and development.

The device is fully radiometric and measures the temperature of every pixel. The Easy Report software allows the user to easily insert multiple images, with data, taken during a site survey to produce an inspection report. The imager features a 160 x 120 pixel, uncooled microbolometer array, capable of displaying high-resolution, real time, thermal images on a 3.5-inch color LCD display with LED backlight. The user may select from among four color palettes. The instrument has a temperature range of 32 degrees F to 482 degrees F, and a trigger activated, Class II laser which precisely identifies the problem hot spot shown on the marked center of the display.

Two measurement cursors, movable anywhere in the image, provide temperature readings at each cursor location, and indicate real-time differential temperature measurement between the two points anywhere along the temperature range. Images can also be captured and manipulated online. The imager is powered by a LI-ion rechargeable battery.
