Revolutionary technology – SuperResolution

Revolutionary technology – SuperResolution

SuperResolution technology is always sought when you need the greatest possible detail in the images for your professional thermographic analysis. The thermal imager's infrared images have a considerably higher resolution and greater detail. The important thing is that: SuperResolution technology always records genuine temperature measuring values – there are no artificial intermediate values projected!

This means that SuperResolution technology offers the possibility - without using larger, more expensive detectors - of recording more temperature measuring values with the thermal imager.

Thermal image building
In building thermography, SuperResolution technology is ideally suited to fast and easy detection of building damage. In addition, energy losses in the heating or air conditioning of buildings can be analysed using high-resolution thermal images. The high level of detail in the image makes inadequate insulation, resulting heat losses or construction defects clearly visible. Leakages can also be displayed precisely in the thermal image using SuperResolution technology.

The geometric resolution of the thermal image plays an important role, particularly in the research & development field. This has been improved by a factor of 1.6 thanks to SuperResolution technology. This means the size of the smallest measurable object is also reduced, which enables the measurement of the smallest structures. So, the tiniest structures down to 0.07 mm can be thermographed using the testo 890 and SuperResolution technology in high resolution.SuperResolution is therefore always particularly important when very small objects need to be thermographed (e.g. a circuit board), or when you need to explore the smallest details in the thermal image after measurement using the Testo analysis software on the PC. At the same time, more details can be identified with images captured from a great distance. SuperResolution technology also plays an important role in industrial maintenance – above all in the detailed early detection of imminent damage in production-related plant components. In the case of mechanical components too, the detection of thermal irregularities (e.g. due to friction or incorrect adjustment) can indicate an elevated level of stress.
