    R70 000 + R12000 for training

    R100 000 for R&D time spent doing research and pratising to get images so clear with a camera which only has 90 x 120 resolution.

    ny next camera will be a ti32 with infusion...makes life a lot easier...you looking at R140 000 for this camera

    i purchased the camera just as a back for fault finding and to commision my projects...but i now use it for a lot more...i do research for sea world on the dolphins as part of my charity work.

    i use it for game drives to find animals without having to use a big spot light

    i use it to find hotspots on electrical panels

    verify steam traps are working corrently

    to check liquid levels in tanks

    i used it to check my daughter after her operation to make sure there was no infections around her wound which we did find and took her back so they could sort her out and to find out what is wrong with her for example when she had a throat infection or ear infestions

    we busy with some research to see whether or not light theropy is gona work on scary creatures

    use it to check motor vehicle cooling systems...to verify if the water is working or radiator

    i check transformers to make sure they are cooloing correctly

    unbalanced loads on electrical distribution systems

    i check plastic injection moulds to verify even distibution of heat across the moulds

    horse legs for breaks and swelling

    the list just goes on and on

    i have even considered helping out at clinics to check children waiting in que who require urgent attention or to check children in classrooms to see if any are running temperatures

    here is an example of my daughter with an ear and throat infection...she cant talk so it is difficult to find out what is wrong...when she gets niggly i just do a full body thermal check and if there are infections arounf her cuts or throat etc
    they show then print the thermal image anf take it with to the doc

    I love these thermal imaging devices. They are incredibly useful.

    Where are you based, Murdock?

    Seems like they made their own induction heater.
