Ergonomic Thermograph Camera Series

FLIR Systems Inc. introduced the T530 and T540 professional thermal imaging cameras, designed for thermographers who operate in a variety of environments including power generation, electrical distribution and research laboratories.

These new cameras offer enhanced ergonomics with 180-degree rotating optical blocks, laser-assisted autofocus and auto-calibrating lenses that are interchangeable with select FLIR camera models. FLIR designed the T500-Series to reduce the strain of continual thermal inspections by offering a 180-degree rotating optical block. With the ability to rotate the camera further, thermographers can image targets overhead, below or even around obstructions from a comfortable position. Featuring AutoCalTM optics, the lenses can be shared between T500-Series models or with the new line of FLIR Exx-Series cameras without the need for secondary pairing or factory recalibration.

vGIS Integration Platform

Meemim Corp. has introduced the vGIS platform to enable technology integration. Meemim vGIS is specifically designed to meet the needs of municipalities and utility companies. The system relies on four key technologies: Meemim’s own knowledge management and spatial processing platforms, ESRI’s ArcGIS, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft HoloLens.

The vGIS application integrates these four technologies, along with visual and audio communication, to provide on-site field technicians with a hands-free experience that offers an integrated view of underground lines, full line and component details with supporting documentation, and real-time collaboration with office-based project and planning staff.
