SF6 Gas detection thermographic camera TC706

The TC706 displays and signals SF6 gas leaks, without the need to de-energize high-voltage equipment or stop operation. The portable camera also highly improves operator safety by detecting emissions at safe distances and helping to protect the environment by detecting the leakage of environmentally harmful gases into the atmosphere.

SF6 is used in the electrical industry as insulation and coolant in substation switchgear.

TC706 - Great choice for Gas Leak Detection

It can detect the following gases:

  • SF6
  • Chlorine Dioxide
  • Ethylene
  • Ammonia
  • Acetic Acid
  • Butanone
  • Cyanoacrylate
  • FREON-12

Unique features:

Adapted passive thermal imaging technology, ability to find the leakage point over a long distance without power failure

Cooled QWIP detector, adds better image quality and accurate temperature measurement

Video and voice recording functions

HD OLED viewer, combined with 5" touch screen rotary display, suitable for many on-site uses

No need for auxiliary light, suitable for on-site checks

Small size, light weight and ease of operation, suitable for one person working on site.
