Welcome to Interview With a Product. This weekly Q&A will feature some of your favorite products uncensored and without their packaging. Today, our interviewee is the OSXL-I series thermal imager from Omega Engineering. Thanks for joining us.
Omega Engineering OSXL-I series thermal imager: It's great to be here.
Plant Services: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
O: Well, thermal imaging is the most effective method for finding problems or potential problems in a variety of applications across many fields. If you are new to thermography and need a general-purpose thermal imaging camera for troubleshooting, I'm your man.
PS: So what exactly do you do?
O: Compact point-and-shoot cameras, like me, are engineered to be a cost-effective choice for getting your new infrared program off to a strong start or arming everyone on your team with the power of thermal imaging.
PS: What sets you apart from the competition?
O: I'm built to provide high-quality thermal images and temperature data to help find wasteful energy loss, locate moisture damage, document repairs, detect energized equipment, minimize downtime and more.
PS: Interesting. What is your best feature?
O: I feature a 71-millimeter LCD color display and a point-and-shoot camera with a focus-free lens.
PS: Why should someone buy you?
O: I'm made to store up to 5,000 jpeg images with a thumbnail image gallery, and I'm designed to be easier, faster and safer to use than infrared thermometers, and more accurate.
PS: Tell us more about Omega Engineering.
O: Since its inception in 1962, Omega has grown from manufacturing a single product line of thermocouples to an established global leader in the technical marketplace, offering more than 100,000 state-of-the-art products for measurement and control of temperature, humidity, pressure, strain, force, flow, level, pH and conductivity.
PS: And now it's time for a fun question. What is your favorite song?
O: Heat Wave, by Martha and the Vandellas.
