FLIR Systems announces the selection of the FLIR T500-Series as a “Red Dot: Best of the Best” winner for 2018. The “Red Dot: Best of the Best” is awarded for groundbreaking product design and is given as the top prize for the best products in their category. As the second FLIR product to win the award in consecutive years, the T500-Series joins the FLIR Exx-Series as an outstanding professional tool recognized for superior design.

The FLIR T500-Series incorporates thoughtful ergonomics into a ruggedized, high-performance thermal imager. A lightweight magnesium interior and 180˚ optical block rotation allow for hours of comfortable operation, and a shatterproof Dragontrail® touchscreen offers peace-of-mind on even the roughest job sites.

While recognized for its design excellence, the T500-Series also includes a wide range of advanced features with professionals in mind. Laser-assisted autofocus allows quick, accurate readings, while FLIR Vision Processing™ combines IR resolution, MSX® and UltraMax® images to create a detailed, brilliant thermal image with very little noise.

The award-winning FLIR T500-Series is now available for purchase through established FLIR distribution partners. For more information or to request a demo, visit www.FLIR.co.uk/T500series

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.
