Unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, the Cat S61 is the upgraded big brother of the very popular Cat S60.

The original integrated FLIR camera on the S60 was incredibly well-received by tradesmen in industries as varied as electricians and plumbers  to vets. It’s more user-friendly, but more crucially, the thermal image resolution has increased.

Improvements you can expect to see include enhanced FLIR thermal imaging capbaility, built in laser assisted distance measuring and an indoor air quality sensor.

Let’s take a look at how CAT have improved their S61:

Cat S61: Indoor Air Quality Sensor and Laser Assisted Distance Measurements explained

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Cat has announced the latest in their rugged smartphone family, the Cat S61, and the specifications are certainly impressive. But it’s the addition of the Indoor Air Quality Sensor and Laser Assisted Distance Measurement features that will really add depth to the FLIR thermal imaging capabilities.

Let us explain:

Indoor Air Quality Sensor

The indoor air quality sensor from Sensirion is built in and used to alert users to high levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs/ indoor air pollutants) in their working environment.

Cat S61 Indoor Air Quality Sensor

Sources of indoor air pollutants can include paints, solvents, carpets, furniture and cleaning products, all common in the environments typical to Cat phone users. The S61 will monitor VOCs and inform users when an unhealthy environment is detected, allowing them to make timely decisions such as opening a window to improve ventilation or taking a break. The sensor can also provide humidity and current temperature readings.

Laser Assisted Distance Measurements

Another useful inbuilt feature is the laser-assisted distance measurement, which can measure point-to-point distances up to 10m, calculate area, and switch between Metric and Imperial measurement. All of this user data is saved within the image so alternative measurement estimates can be taken or adjustments made without returning to the site.

This combination of features is highly valued by Cat phones customers. Electricians, for example, can use thermal imaging to analyse a fuse box or wiring system, and the laser-assisted distance measurement to estimate how much cable is required for the job. They can also live stream results back to base should they need further advice from a colleague.
