FLIR E5 thermal camera

For those adopting thermal imaging or upgrading an existing camera within a constrained budget, until 30 September 2016, Flir Systems is offering customers a Flir E5 for the price of a Flir E4 or a Flir E6 at the same price as a Flir E5. This represents a cost saving of up to £799 (excluding VAT) and a substantial increase in camera performance.

According to the company, Flir Systems’ MSX-technology provides exceptional image quality in real time. This results in pin-sharp thermal images, quicker target orientation and clean reports.

To quantify the performance differences of the various models, the Flir E4, E5 and E6 respectively have an image quality of 80 x 60 pixels, 120 x 90 pixels and 160 x 120 pixels and can see temperature differences of 0.15°C, 0.10°C and 0.06°C.  So this offer not only saves the user money but also allows them to clearly define the problem from the thermal image.

Flir Systems also has a limited period offer on its Flir Exx-Series with resolutions up to 320 x 240 pixels. Additionally, this range provides a variety of interchangeable lenses that allows the user, for example, to switch to wide angle to capture more of the scene in one shot, or telephoto to see and measure distant and smaller targets.

Until 30 September the Flir E60 and E60bx for building thermography is available at the price of the FLIR E50 (bx). In performance terms this means a model with 320 x 240 pixels instead of 240 x 180 pixels and the deal also includes a dual-bay charger and spare battery.

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.
