The Cat® S61 smartphone

Packed with tools of the trade: integrated thermal imaging, indoor air quality monitor and laser assisted distance measure

READING, UK, 5th July 2018 – The new flagship smartphone from Cat® phones is now available. The successor to the multi award winning Cat S60, it features enhanced FLIR® thermal imaging capability, built-in laser assisted distance measure, and an indoor air quality sensor. A survey of over 21,000 Cat phone customers worldwide showed that 94% of Cat S60 owners rated the device positively, with 91% likely to buy ‘Cat’ again. The new Cat S61 is the tool to help get any job done.

Integrated thermal imaging camera

Whether it’s used as a tool to monitor, to diagnose or to improve efficiency, the Cat S61 provides instant access to thermal imaging via the mobile in your pocket. Scan the situation for a different perspective and to locate a heat source up to 400ºC, even in complete darkness. The Cat S61 provides even more detail to help locate and diagnose the damp, draft, leak, short or blockage. Save time, share with colleagues or clients and evaluate the results instantly. Diagnose the problem and show the visual proof for instant job quotes on site, all from the FLIR app on the Cat S61.

Laser assisted distance measure

Brilliant for on the job estimates of the materials required. It will save you time by performing multiple jobs from just one image stored on the phone; measuring the length and height, working out the area and then keeping the details safely documented alongside a record of the layout of the area, all on one screen. Materials needed for painting, flooring, tiling or whatever task is being undertaken can all be estimated quickly with the Measure app on the Cat S61.By recording the area layout it can also help to visualise what the item will look like in that area, before the work even starts.

Indoor Air Quality Monitor

Capable of measuring Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), the Cat S61’s indoor air quality sensor will monitor the environment it’s in. The Air app will prompt you to open a window or grab some fresh air if an unhealthy level of VOCs has been detected. Common sources of VOC’s include paints, solvents, carpets, furniture, cleaning products and even humans.

It can also be used to provide temperature and humidity readings, useful for example, for rooms without an extractor fan and where opening a window alone doesn’t always completely remove all the moisture, or to indicate when a freshly plastered wall is dry and ready to paint.
