Klein Tools Rechargeable Pro Thermal Imager TI290 – Features
This is Klein’s second all in one thermal imager with the first being the TI250. It has the shape of a smartphone, a thick one at that with screen that takes up most of the real estate in front. This model is larger than the previous TI250 model with bigger screen as well. What’s great about this shape is that it’s not the traditional gun shape like most thermal imagers. It’s smartphone-like shape means it is easily pocketable.
It also has an upgraded thermal sensor compared to the previous model. While the previous model was rated at 10K pixels, this new model is around 49,000 pixels. That’s nearly 5 times more detail.
Temperature reading range is rated at -4° to 752°F (-20° to 400°C). This model can take and save images with built in memory that can hold up to 10,000 images. It also has the ability to share images via Wifi.
This Klein thermal imager only has one imaging sensor. Klein’s thermal imager works like your standard thermal imager in the sense that you only get a thermal image. Flir has what they call MSX image enhancement technology that overlays the thermal image and a regular image to give the thermal image a bit more detail. Klein’s model doesn’t do that and just shows a regular thermal image.
