Free clamp meter with infrared cameras
One of the many benefits of the FLIR Ex-Series point-and-shoot thermal imaging cameras is their ability to receive and correlate measurement data from similarly wi-fi enabled meters. Until the end of September 2017, anyone buying a FLIR E6 or E8 camera will be able to experience this functionality for free. For this limited period, every FLIR E6 or E8 ordered will come complete with a FLIR CM4x clamp meter.
 
The FLIR Ex-Series infrared cameras are powerful and highly cost-effective tools for electrical and mechanical thermal inspection.  Both include FLIR’s patented MSX as standard. This technology provides extraordinary thermal imaging detail and has contributed significantly to the popularity of these models.
 
MSX extracts the outline detail from the visual image and blends it with the thermal profile, making is so much easier for the camera user to diagnose the problem. Its effect is particularly striking on the higher resolution 320 x 240 pixels images captured by the FLIR E8.  Such is the clarity of the MSX-enhanced image that a supporting visual image is often unnecessary.  MSX can also be applied to stored visual and thermal JPEG images after inspection.
 
The FLIR CM4x range of clamp meters includes three professional true RMS instruments; FLIR CM44 is suitable for AC clamp measurement and the FLIR CM46 for both AC and DC. During the company’s summer promotion FLIR E6 customers will receive a free FLIR CM44 and those ordering a FLIR E8, a FLIR CM46.

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.
