New Thermal Imaging Camera Named 2013 Money-Saving Product Winner
New York, NY -- It’s one thing for a company to claim a product saves users time and money. It’s quite another for that claim to be substantiated by an independent source. That’s exactly what’s happened to the new Predator Thermal/Visual Imaging Camera with Picture-in-Picture (GTi20) from General Tools & Instruments (General®): BUILDINGS magazine has named it a 2013 Money-Saving Products winner.
The competition recognizes products for the money-saving qualities they offer to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy consumption, water savings, lighting, envelope improvement and maintenance. The products must be relevant to commercial building operations.
“General’s Thermal Imaging Camera was chosen as a 2013 Money-Saving Product because it provides an economical solution and significant cost savings to building management,” says Jennie Morton, BUILDINGS Associate Editor.
Selected by BUILDING’s editorial staff from more than 130 submissions, General’s GTi20 proved itself a winner in the Energy Measures category. Other categories included Lighting Solutions, HVAC Fixes, Water Savings, Roofing Applications, Safety Options and Labor Reducing.
General’s Predator Thermal/Visual Imaging Camera with Picture-in-Picture (GTi20) and the other competition winners are featured in the June 2013 issue of BUILDINGS magazine. See the digital edition online at http://digitaledition.buildings.com/2013/June_2013/. According to the article, the GTi20 “...is ideal for conducting energy audits to generate long-term savings” and is a strategic investment that can pay for itself “...by helping to avoid energy waste and electrical system deficiencies.”
“With countless predictive maintenance applications, the GTi20 is designed to offer outstanding benefits and value to plant and facility maintenance managers, not to mention HVACR technicians and contractors, energy auditors, automotive technicians and others,” says General’s VP of Strategic Marketing Peter Harper. “This recognition from BUILDINGS validates our assertion that the camera saves users time and money on the job.”
Ideal for revealing hidden heat-driven problems, the GTi20 converts an object’s invisible infrared radiation to a visible color image and can detect very small temperature differences from a distance. These visual thermal images (called thermograms) with multiple temperature points enable the diagnosis of equipment malfunctions and poor performance far more effectively than single-spot conventional temperature measurement devices. The powerful, convincing images and related data generated by the GTi20 also help building and facility managers to document findings and design solutions. The camera’s manual focus, optional interchangeable lenses and high resolution provide more accurate images and assessments than competitive models. In-camera analysis tools increase operator efficiency by allowing real-time access to and collection of all relevant temperature data. Included software enables more detailed temperature analysis and reporting.
