Chauvin Arnoux C.A1888 Thermal Camera
With excellent thermal resolution of 384 x 288 pixels, thermal sensitivity of 0.08°C (at 30°C) and temperature measurement range from -20 to +600°C, the Chauvin Arnoux CA1888 RayCam thermal camera is ideal for everything from detecting overheating electrical components and motors to spotting air leaks and energy loss in buildings.
Chauvin Arnoux CA1888 differs from other pistol-shaped devices by including a multi-directional screen that can be positioned as needed in order to get the best overall view of the current object being measured. The pistol shape of the device means it is incredibly comfortable to hold and operate with just one hand.

Part of the problem with lower end thermal cameras is that they merely take a thermal image. When looking back at this captured image it can often be difficult to determine exactly what you're looking at, particularly if you're working in unfamiliar environments or are carrying out multiple tests over a day.
With the RayCAms, users can choose the mode for viewing the target: infrared, real or a mix of both with the "MixVision" function. This allows you to adjust the transparency (in %) of the infrared image in relation to the real image, thus helping to identify problem areas immediately
With the RayCAm Report Standard, you can combine your thermogram with a real image. This allows you to identify the fault or dysfunction so that you can make the appropriate corrections.
This new mode can be used to open one or more images, add various analytical tools and obtain a summarized presentation of all the results in a table. This mode is useful for first-level analysis when you simply want a rough idea of the temperature values without saving the analyses.
If a characteristic on the radiometric image is changed, the other values are automatically recalculated. RayCAm Report Standard allows you to define the emissivity of each point in the thermogram, an essential feature when the thermogram contains different materials.
Choose a different configuration for each analytical tool inserted on your thermogram.
A wide range of possibilities
- specify a different emissivity from that of the thermogram as a whole
- display a value label next to the tool
- display the Max/Min temperature within an area of analysis
RayCAm Report Standard is the ideal tool for analysing the results and creating customized reports. Its interface is so simple that anyone can learn to use it very quickly.
All the analysis functions are accessible via the toolbar. Depending on their requirements, users can position various elements:
- Cursors (automatic display of the temperature at the point selected).
- Thermal profile (automatic display of the Min/Max/Average temperatures of the line).
- A square or circle for area analysis (ideal for Min/Max/Average temperature comparisons between terminals, for example).
- Result tables quickly display all the data/ analytical tools on the thermogram automatically.
- The "Max" function automatically indicates the hottest point in the whole thermogram or in a predefined area of analysis.
- Polygons and polylines for more precise analysis of certain areas in the thermogram.
- A barchart for studying the temperature distribution according to several intervals.
