RIDGID Thermal Imagers
Thermal Imagers from RIDGID are ideal for locating electrical issues, hidden moisture, overheating motors, insulation voids and thermal bridges. The product line includes four imagers: RT-3, RT-5x, RT-7x and RT-9x. They range from providing 160 by 120 to 320 by 240 pixel thermal images. Using pixel shift technology, SuperResolution effectively doubles the resolution of the camera for saved images, allowing greater detail to detect anomalies, and is featured on all models. The RIDGID Thermal App creates and shares reports from the thermal imager onto a mobile device. With e-Assist, via the integrated digital camera, the imager recognizes a placed reference sticker, determines emissivity and reflected temperature, and sets both values automatically. 800-769-7743;
