Storage The RAZ-IR MAX-S is the result of careful analysis and feedback from existing thermal camera users. The need for flexible image storage options has been addressed on many levels. Removable storage is a must on today’s infrared cameras. The RAZ-IR MAX-S uses industry standard consumer SD memory cards that are readily available at common electronics retailers worldwide. The MAX-S comes with a 2GB SD card, which can store thousands of images, to get you started. You can use this card for everything and you also have the option of using additional cards for backup. Some people use a different card for each job. The RAZ-IR MAX-S is all about options. Storage is not limited to just the SD card. In the field, anything can happen. SD cards get lost. Or maybe you forget to pack it for the job. Occasionally, cards even become corrupt and unusable. Never fear, the MAX-S is here. In addition to the SD card image storage, the MAX-S also has internal UFLASH image storage that lets you save images (thermal and visual) internally without an SD card. With RAZ-IR MAX, you will always be able to finish the job.

Control buttons on the RAZ_R MAX S

Buttons You see these three buttons? That’s all it takes to unleash the power of the RAZ-IR MAX-S thermal imager. Truly designed for the working professional, the MAX-S never lets its controls get in the way of completing the job. Like any good tool, the MAX-S feels good in your hand and lets you get the work done with minimum effort. All the advanced functionality of the MAX-S is accessed by way of these buttons and the intuitive onscreen menus. There is even a users manual built right into the camera that you can access at any time with, you guessed it, the touch of a button. Electronic power focus is also controlled from the MAX-S buttons so you truly have a device that you can operate with one hand.

The CMOS camera of the RAZ-IR thermal camera

CMOS Camera Does it make sense to have an ultra exotic thermal infrared sensor sitting next to a low quality low resolution visual camera? Of course not. The thermal image is only have the job. A professional report includes both thermal and visual light images of problem areas. Many other thermal cameras approach the visual camera as an afterthought. Not the MAX-S! This forward looking infrared system boasts an ultra clean 2 megapixel video sensor. The RAZ-IR MAX-S automatically saves brilliant visual light images alongside the thermal images for easy report generation. Buying a thermal camera with a low end visual camera is like doing half the job. Don’t settle for half a camera, get the RAZ-IR MAX-S.

Batteries in the RAZ-IR thermal camera

Batteries You wouldn’t think that batteries are a big deal, but the designers of the MAX-S do. Traditionally, most thermal infrared camera systems come with proprietary batteries that are unique to a particular manufacturer and usually to just one model from that manufacturer. If you only have one place to buy the batteries and they aren’t being produced in mass quantities, then that means you are paying too much for batteries. Many thermal camera manufacturers charge over $200 for a rechargeable battery! The MAX-S lets you decided. It is recommended to use off the shelf rechargeable AA batteries as the primary power source. This is the greenest way to go. But if you are stuck in a bind, thermal imaging power is only as far away was the local drugstore. The RAZ-IR MAX-S can operate on disposable AA batteries. The MAX-S never lets you down. Want some extra punch from disposables? Try the new Lithium Ion AA batteries. Want to charge your drained rechargeable batteries in the MAX-S? No problem. Want to use an external charger? No problem. It’s easy when it’s MAX-S!

The lens of the RAZ-IR MAX S thermal camera

Protected Lens with Power Focus As an industrial tool, ruggedness and longevity are key attributes. One of the most delicate parts of any thermal camera is the lens. Thermal infrared camera lenses are made from very exotic germanium crystals and not from glass. The lens technology is very expensive so the last thing you want to do is break a thermal camera lens. The high quality optics on the MAX-S are inset into the camera body to afford the ultimate in protection in harsh environments. There is almost no way that the lens can be knocked and accidentally broken with the RAZ-IR MAX-S. Will the lens is inset into the camera, our unique twist lock interface still allows for optional lenses to be affixed. Just to make certain that all is in focus the RAZ-IR MAX-S is equipped with a unique POWER FOCUS feature. The focus is easily adjusted with buttons on the front of the RAZ-IR MAX-S system. Protection and POWER are yours with the RAZ-IR MAX-S thermal camera system.

The RAZ-IR Thermal Camera – MAX-S utilizes radiometric temperature measurement, so in addition to seeing what is hot and cold, it also records the temperature of any particular point in a scene. Simply line up the crosshairs on the spot that you want to analyze, and the MAX-S does the rest– in real time. Take your measurements and move the crosshairs to your next area of interest. The RAZ-IR MAX-S allows emissivity, ambient temperature, object distance, and humidity adjustments for temperature calibration and even greater data accuracy.
Once a problem area is identified, the push of just one button saves the image. Later, download all saved images into the Analyzer software (included with every MAX-S camera) and explore a whole world of analysis options. Every pixel within every image is fully calibrated and contains radiometric temperature data. The Analyzer software has complex temperature measurement functions like multiple spot, bounding box, min/max/average, histogram, and delta T that provides content for comprehensive and professional looking thermographic reports.

the MAX-S high temperature calibration option to measure up to 662ºF. Now, that’s hot!
