FLIR Systems Thermography has announced a value-added promotion of a bonus FLIR ONE unit with the purchase of a K40 or K50 thermal-imaging camera. The promotion began on 1 November and runs until the end of 2014.

FLIR ONE unit

FLIR K-series cameras are high-resolution thermal imagers, specifically designed for the extreme heat and smoky conditions that firefighters encounter.

Both the K40 and K50 offer a bright LCD display for superior visibility, simple operation, image storage, and easy toggling between five imaging modes to optimise sensitivity for higher or lower temperature ranges, including search and rescue (SAR) and hotspot detection.

The FLIR ONE, on the other hand, is a lightweight accessory that transforms an iPhone 5 or 5s into a thermal imager that is able to detect and display invisible heat energy. According to the company, for firefighters, this adds situational awareness capabilities to a smartphone platform.

While the FLIR ONE is not designed to be used in the extreme temperature environments found inside burning structures, the company says that it has the potential to be helpful for scanning exteriors for hotspots during the overhaul phase, detecting heat signatures during outdoor rescue efforts, and as a fire prevention inspection tool.

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.
