Black Forest Thermal

For the efficient use of a thermal imaging camera needed practical accessories, suitable to various requirements. The sets are their ideal combination and the permanently attractive price. Thermal images provide a suitable analysis to many tasks, to identify problem areas at an early stage and to assess. When choosing a thermal imaging camera, the user must decide between clearly differing abilities however and properly estimate yet its requirements at the same time even with the accessories. The critical customer his decision is not easier also, is recruited by some providers in special actions when buying a thermal imager with single free supplements. The Testo AG in Lenzkirch in the Black Forest, has collected several sets of thermography to facilitate the selection process and better transparency and permanently recorded in his offer.

Supplemented with the appropriate accessories Testo enters so specifically on requirements, how they have become clear in close dialogue with the customer in Germany.
