Vimpex, the specialist supplier of PPE, Technical Rescue Products and Telescopic Masts, has launched the HotSpotter heat scanning device. The HotSpotter, developed by Product Innovation Ltd, is a simple hand tool for fire fighters and others involved in fire prevention and post fire investigation. It detects and locates small areas which are hotter than the surroundings both in a building and outside. It senses the infrared radiation being emitted by a local hotspot. By scanning a wide area it allows the user to quickly detect and locate a region for further investigation.

The HotSpotter is very robust, waterproof and is easy and intuitive to use. It costs a fraction of the price of a thermal imaging camera.

 Vimpex has sample units available for trial and would be very happy to visit customers for the purposes of demonstrating the Hotspotter.

The Hotspotter is one of several specialist products supplied by Vimpex and designed specifically with the fire and rescue services in mind. Other products include the Ogura range of portable battery-powered rescue tools, the extremely powerful family of Cutters Edge Saws, the revolutionary Canguro Scene Star Scene Lighting System and Endress Generators.
