Just like its predecessors, the Cat S61 has a FLIR thermal camera, which the manufacturer has further improved. The measurable temperature range has been increased up to 400 ° C (120 ° C at predecessor). The main camera offers 16 megapixels, at the front 8 megapixels are installed.
Combined with the main camera and an integrated laser, the Cat S61 can also measure distance up to 8 meters from point to point – the tolerance range is +/- 3%, according to the manufacturer. Measurements already taken can be recalled as an image, it is also possible to make further measurements directly on the image.

With the indoor air quality sensor, the device should also be able to detect volatile organic compounds in the indoor air, which craftsmen may be exposed to when working with paints, solvents, glues, and adhesives. However, Cat Phones clearly states that the function is not suitable to test “the safety of a place”, but rather it should be used to reduce the burden of such connections.
