C.A 1954, latest 100%-French thermal camera from Chauvin Arnoux

April 11, 2018

Concentrated advantages!

After the success of its C.A 1950 thermal camera, Chauvin Arnoux is commercializing a new camera, the DiaCAm2 C.A 1954, with even more advantages. It retains the ergonomics specially designed for optimum grip with direct access to the functions, even when working one-handed, the start-up in just 3 seconds and the exceptional 9-hour battery life in continuous use.  It also offers a host of additional advantages, however.   Concentrated intelligence! The C.A 1954 DiaCAm2 is perfectly balanced, whether placed on a table or held in the hand.  The display on a wide 2.8-inch screen with automatic brightness adjustment ensures that it can be read comfortably. The field of view is 38° x 28° and the camera is focus-free. The lens is protected by a slide-down cover built into the instrument, so that it cannot be lost and does not get in the way when you work. Contextual help guides users step-by-step, thus limiting the risk of errors. Particularly rugged, with IP54  ingress protection, the camera can withstand falls from 2 metres (laboratory tests).   Concentrated measurement The C.A 1954 is a communicating camera which simultaneously recovers the measurements from other instruments such as current clamps, multimeters, thermometers, thermo-hygrometers, etc., via Bluetooth. In this way, users can link the thermograms from the camera to the data from measurements made simultaneously with other measuring instruments. This involves values such as: - the dew point, - the humidity, - the ambient temperature, - the current, etc.   The integrated emissivity table can be enhanced as required. It is possible to rename the images and thermograms by site and record voice comments for easier follow-up. The C.A 1954 has a memory capacity of nearly 4,000 images on the 2 GB removable µSD card supplied which can easily be replaced with a 32 GB card.   Concentrated applications   The C.A 1954 is ideal for all applications in the building industry and for electrical and mechanical maintenance: -thermal audits, -fault detection (thermal bridges, seepage, presence of humidity), -electrical maintenance: detection of faulty contacts, unbalance, etc. - mechanical maintenance: detection of wear points, engine overheating, lubrication problems, etc.   In industrial maintenance, linking thermograms and current measurements enables you to find out the load level at the time of measurement, facilitating identification of the fault and assessment of its criticality.  In buildings, the isotherm coupled with the dew point value can be used to detect areas at risk from mould.   It is possible to record and store the configurations for the different applications (building, electrical cabinet, etc.), thus saving extra time.   The CAmReport® software, supplied free of charge, can be used to create automatic reports which can be exported in Word or PDF format. This simplifies printing and archiving.   The C.A 1954 is delivered ready to use in a site-proof casing with all its accessories, including the Bluetooth earpiece. It complies with the environmental protection and part recycling specifications of the Chauvin Arnoux Group's "Eco-Conception" eco-design label.

DOX, an extra-compact multi-function diagnostic tool

June 2, 2014

The compact, easy-to-use oscilloscopes in the DOX 2000 Series are equipped with a wide display offering 18 div. horizontally in full-screen mode. This allows users to customize the display: choice between normal or persistent display, YT or XY format, adjustment of the colours, graticule, brightness, contrast, etc. Access to the commands is provided by rotary buttons and backlit keys on the front panel. With their handle, the DOX oscilloscopes are easy to transport and their non-slip feet make them particularly stable. Energy-saving: start-up and shutdown take less than 10 s. The "soft keys" (icons) on the right-hand side of the screen are intuitive and offer direct access to the type of signal that you wish to view. The menus are available in 5 languages. Communicating: the DOX2000 oscilloscopes are equipped with a USB port to communicate with PCs or printers. The associated EASYSCOPE software can be used to control and test the oscilloscope and to recover trace and screenshot files. 

High performance and multiple functions for acquisition and analysis
The DOX2000 oscilloscopes offer a maximum sampling rate of up to 1 GS/s in one-shot mode and up to 50 GS/s in ETS mode. There are 3 levels of acquisition for acquisition and analysis, in real time or equivalent time. Depending on the model, the acquisition memory depth extends from 32 kpoints to 2 Mpoints to optimize your analyses. The vertical sensitivity is 2 mV/div. to 10 V/div. in 12 ranges and the horizontal sensitivity is 2.5 ns to 50 s/div. Advanced functions are available: simple MATH functions (+/-/x/÷) and "real-time" FFT function with simultaneous display of the traces. Everything has been designed to allow very detailed analysis of the signals: selection of programmable digital filters, slow signal recorder in ROLL mode on 6 Mpoints over a period of 100 ms. There is an integrated "pass/fail" mask so that users can quickly identify any problems on a signal. It can be used to assess whether the input signal matches a template (defined by the user or not), thus giving an instantaneous view of the measurement.
