New Addition to Popular Cx-Series Instantly Uploads Images to the Cloud for Building, Manufacturing, and Utility Applications

FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announce the FLIR C5 Compact Thermal Camera with new built-in FLIR Ignite™ cloud connectivity and Wi-Fi features for professionals in the building maintenance, manufacturing, and utility industries. The FLIR C5 is designed as a pocket-portable thermal camera, providing easy sharing tools and reduced diagnostic time for commercial electrical testing, mechanical engineering, home and building inspection, energy auditing, and general contracting.

The C5 is the first FLIR Cx-Series thermal camera to offer the FLIR Ignite cloud-based solution. When connected to Wi-Fi, professionals can directly upload, store, and back up images and videos to FLIR Ignite. Professionals can also manage and share the data via email from any mobile device or desktop computer. With all images and videos in one place, sharing data with team members and creating reports for customers is convenient and simple.

Featuring FLIR Lepton® thermal imaging sensor and FLIR-patented MSX® (Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging) technology, which embosses visible scene details onto thermal images to create a crisp image, inspectors can pinpoint hidden problems instantly.

“The FLIR C5 helps professionals troubleshoot faster and more safely by guiding them to the source of problems including electrical faults, hot fuses, air leaks, plumbing issues, and moisture,” said Rickard Lindvall, General Manager, Solutions Line of Business at FLIR. “The compact C5 is an ideal size to carry in a pocket or tool bag, enabling faster inspections.”

The FLIR C5 is available for purchase today for £588.72 (Ex. VAT) on FLIR.co.uk and through FLIR authorized distributors. To learn more, please visit www.flir.co.uk/products/C5.

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.
