FLIR Systems announces the FLIR E53 – the latest addition to the Exx-Series of advanced thermal imaging cameras for electrical, mechanical, and building applications. This model is an entry-level model in the Exx-Series, but offers the same image clarity, measurement accuracy, and many of the robust features as other models in the Exx lineup. The E53 brings advanced thermal imaging within the reach of many more service professionals and contractors, who need these cameras to identify hot spots or building deficiencies before they lead to expensive repairs.

The FLIR E53 features a brilliant 4-inch touchscreen with a 160-degree viewing angle, to ensure users always have a clear view of the thermal image from any angle. Like the other Exx-Series models, the E53 offers significant improvements to FLIR’s MSX technology, utilizing a 5-megapixel visual camera for improved image clarity, perspective, and readability. The E53’s 240×180 resolution detector offers more than 43,000 points of temperature measurement and a high temperature range up to 1200°F (650°C).

“With the FLIR E53, we’re making our Exx-Series line of advanced handheld cameras more accessible to industry professionals who access to this type of technology – the World’s Sixth Sense – but thought it was out of reach,” said Rickard Lindvall, General Manager of Instruments at FLIR. “It offers the resolution, sensitivity, and reporting tools they need to be able to quickly and accurately diagnose problems, and prove they’ve made the repairs.”

The FLIR E53 is available through established FLIR distribution partners. For more information, visit www.flir.com/exx-series

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.
