The Termatrac T3i All Sensor is an “all-in-one” instrument used to help the building inspector or pest inspector to detect the presence of termites and other pests, to track their activity and locate their nests and determine the extent of pest infestation.

The T3i All Sensor combines Termatrac’s patented radar technology with a thermal and a relative and direct moisture sensor. 

The Termatrac T3i All Sensor’s Thermal Sensor technology

The Termatrac T3i All Sensor’s Thermal Sensor is a non-intrusive infrared sensor that enables the building or pest inspector to detect temperature differences on the surfaces of building walls and to identify irregular heat patterns. Such changes in surface temperature and thermal anomalies may indicate the presence of moisture or other kinds of damage that may signal the presence of pests or identify their entry point.

Vital’s team of experienced building and pest inspectors are trained and certified in the operation of the T3i Thermal Sensor, using it to identify infrared energy emitted by heat sources in walls and other relatively inaccessible areas of a building, such as that given off by insect and rodent nests.

Unlike thermal cameras that display images, the infrared sensor of the T3i All Sensor averages the temperature detected by a laser pointer to provide the operator with a numerical reading. 

The Termatrac T3i All Sensor’s dual mode Moisture Sensor technology
The Termatrac T3i All Sensor’s dual mode moisture sensor is a non-intrusive, pin-less moisture sensor that uses a capacitance-based method of measuring moisture content within a sample area, penetrating to a depth of up to 60mm.

The T3i All Sensor’s ultra-sensitive direct moisture sensor detects small changes or fluctuation in moisture content within a material, such as a plasterboard wall. Unlike many moisture sensors on the market, which detect moisture in an arc beam from the sensor, the T3i direct moisture sensor uses omni-directional technology to measure moisture content surrounding and directly underneath the instrument. 

The T3i’s direct moisture sensor calculates and displays the absolute moisture value as a percentage, as well as displaying the value on a dial-type gauge. The sensor is designed to deliver accurate moisture readings, even in environments with extreme humidity.

The Termatrac T3i All Sensor’s Radar Sensor technology

The Termatrac T3i All Sensor’s Radar Sensor uses a state-of-the-art technology that is specifically calibrated to detect termite and other insect activity, track their movement, and locate their entry point.

The T3i’s radar sensor transmits high-frequency, low-energy microwaves that penetrate building materials, enabling the operator to detect and track termite and pest activity. The radar sensor picks up differences in the reflected waveform caused by interference, which are due to movements made by termites and pests within the building materials. This interference in the waveform is displayed on the sensor’s screen, allowing the operator to track movement and activity in real time.

Most importantly, the radar sensor enables the operator to pinpoint areas of activity without disturbing the nests of termites and other pests. Minimal disruption is particularly important as termites tend to disperse when their nests are disturbed, making containment and eradication much more difficult. 

Vital Building Inspections Sydney's Termatrac technology

Our building and pest inspectors use the Termatrac T3i All Sensor – the most accurate and non-invasive detector on the market – to assist them to confirm the presence of termites and other pests in building materials.

The Termatrac T3i All Sensor’s ability to pinpoint termite and pest location and movement without disturbance allows termites and other pests to be identified, contained and eradicated with minimal effort and enables the use of localised treatments that help to avoid unnecessary drilling and removal of un-infested or undamaged sections of building materials, keeping repair costs to a minimum.

The Termatrac T3i All Sensor is just one of the technologies that Vital can use when undertaking your building and pest inspection.
