FLIR C2 data sheet - .PDF file.

FLIR Systems — Thermography has launched the C2, a fully featured thermal camera designed to help building professionals identify hidden heat patterns that clearly show where problems are, such as sources of energy waste, signs of structural defects and plumbing issues. Its compact and slim design means it can fit comfortably into any pocket, available for immediate use to uncover invisible building issues and to show customers where potential problems are located. 

According to the company, the C2 creates thermal images with stunning details to help identify problem locations. The patent MSX real-time image enhancement feature adds key details (captured by the on-board visible camera) to the C2’s thermal images, so numbers, letters, texture and other features are clearly recognisable without compromising the thermal image. 

The C2’s 4800-pixel-resolution high-sensitivity detector captures and displays subtle thermal patterns and small temperature differences useful in building applications. In addition, the C2 includes a built-in work light and flash that help illuminate poorly lit areas common in building inspection environments. The extra illumination also ensures that a brighter visible photo is captured along with the C2’s thermal image.

The device can store radiometric JPEGs with the push of a button. The images can be downloaded later using the free FLIR Tools software, which allows the user to adjust thermal image levels, isolate and add temperature measurements, change colour palettes and create persuasive reports.

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.
