Which shows the contours of objects on the thermal image or use thealpha blending function to combine thermal images with normal images from a Sony dual-pixel camera. Combined, according to Cat, this produces sharper thermal images that offer more context and insights.
Paul Clayton, General Manager Components Business at FLIR, said: “Users are using the MyFLIR Pro app for the first time to access advanced thermographic features on their smartphone to take full advantage of heat energy not visible with the naked eye.”
So you can monitor the specific temperature range between -20 ° C and 400 ° C with isothermal warnings on the Cat S62 Pro. The phone gives a warning when an object reaches the set temperature. This is very useful when monitoring machines, looking for unusual temperatures or even testing if the barbecue is hot enough
