The Newest FLIR Spot Thermal Camera Offers Improved Diagnosis for Electrical and Inspection MaintenanceFLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) today announced the TG165-X MSX® Thermal Camera for electrical contractors, machine technicians, facilities maintenance engineers, home inspectors, and HVAC professionals. Engineered for tough work environments, this upgrade to the popular TG165 provides an all-in-one diagnostics tool with a spot temperature gun and thermal imager, enhanced by FLIR´s patented Multi-spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX).

“With the addition of MSX, the TG165-X offers improved identification of hot spots that indicate electrical or mechanical failures, and the cold spots that indicate water or air leaks,” said Rickard Lindvall, General Manager, Solutions at FLIR Systems. “Further, the TG165-X visually guides professionals to the source of common system failures so they can diagnose the problem and begin repairs more quickly.”

Built around a true thermal 80 × 60 camera sensor with 4,800 pixels, FLIR MSX´s two-camera technology makes images easier to understand by adding visual details to full thermal images and making them sharper to recognize physical features. A new laser-projected bullseye target aids in pinpointing areas of concern, while the bright 2.4-inch LCD color display and wide 51 degrees × 66 degrees field-of-view provide a comprehensive view of the area of interest.

The TG165-X includes an IP54 enclosure for protection against dust and water and a drop-rating of two meters (6.6 feet), making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor inspections. The camera can store up to 50,000 images and data to an embedded four-gigabyte flash memory which can be downloaded to FLIR Tools to create professional reports.

The FLIR TG165-X is available globally today for $399 USD through FLIR and authorized FLIR distributors. For more information, please visit www.flir.com/tg165-x.

About FLIR Systems, Inc.

Founded in 1978, FLIR Systems is a world-leading industrial technology company focused on intelligent sensing solutions for defense, industrial, and commercial applications. FLIR Systems´ vision is to be »The World´s Sixth Sense, creating technologies to help professionals make more informed decisions that save lives and livelihoods.

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
