Thermal imaging specialist FLIR has unveiled a new range of entry-level cameras, promising unparalled technology for a ‘basic’ type of camera
FLIR says its Ex-Series of entry-level thermal imaging cameras have a variety of features that have never before been seen in this class of camera. “These are true thermal imaging cameras, not instruments that simply take spot temperature measurements or use blended techniques,” the company said.
The range includes patented MSX-technology that was previously only available on FLIR’s T-Series and above, which the company says provides exceptional image quality in real time, ‘resulting in pin-sharp thermal images, quicker target orientation and clean reports.’
A built-in visual camera makes target association and inspection easy, and MSX can be applied to the stored visual and thermal JPEG images after inspection.
FLIR notes that the Ex-Series is designed for those who are new to thermal imaging, and with a fixed focus-free lens, no adjustment is necessary, enabling the user to point and shoot and all the required temperature data, up to +250 deg C, is automatically embedded on the JPEG images.
The new additions to the FLIR Systems’ range are also lightweight, at 0.575 kg, enabling all of the models to be comfortably carried on a tool belt.
The range provides thermal image quality from 80 x 60 pixels up to 320 x 240 pixels enabling entire areas to be scanned in one pass, and have the ability to see temperature differences as small as 0.06 deg C, so are ideal for troubleshooting all electrical and mechanical faults through thermal measurement, FLIR says
