HIKMICRO Pocket 2: Compact & Robust Thermal Imaging Camera

Updated: May 27

HIKMICRO’s Pocket 2, a compact and robust thermal imaging camera designed for various applications, including electrical inspections and construction projects. Released on June 1, 2022, the Pocket 2 boasts a high-resolution 256x192 pixel Vox detector, offering a fixed focus with a field of view of 50° × 37.2° (H x V). Equipped with an optical 8-megapixel camera and an LED light, the device ensures quick and efficient operation with a 3.5-inch touch-screen and an intuitive menu.

Inspectors using the Pocket 2 can swiftly identify potential errors, with thermal images and corresponding visual images saved as radiometric JPEGs for documentation in the internal 16 GB memory. Results can be easily shared via Wi-Fi and the HIKMICRO Viewer app, facilitating on-site reporting and real-time analysis, ultimately speeding up reaction time for repairs and reducing potential downtime costs.

With features like video recording and 4x zoom, inspectors won't miss anomalies, relying on accurate measurements. The Pocket 2 demonstrates a measurement accuracy of +/- 2% or 2 °C across the entire temperature range from -20 °C to 400 °C, ensuring reliability with a good NETD < 40 mK (at 25 °C). With a refresh rate of 25 Hz, the camera provides a clear image without judder, making it ideal for servicing and maintenance programs.

The Pocket 2 supports four image modes: Thermal image, fusion, picture-in-picture, and optical mode (real image). Seven color palettes are available for displaying thermal images, providing flexibility and customization. Acoustic and optical alarms can be set, with the internal loudspeaker and LED warning when pre-set temperatures are exceeded. The Pocket 2 comes with protection class IP54, making it suitable for industrial use, and withstands a drop test from a height of two meters. HIKMICRO offers a three-year warranty on the camera itself and a 10-year warranty on the detector.
