Pixel numbers are important in thermal imaging. The more there are, the clearer the thermal picture and the easier the diagnosis. Until the end of the year, FLIR Systems is offering its customers higher image resolution for the same price in a promotion to demonstrate pixel power. That means it’s now possible to buy a FLIR E6 for the price of a FLIR E5 and a FLIR E5 for the price of a FLIR E4.

The FLIR Ex-Series point-and-shoot thermal imaging cameras are affordable replacements for a spot pyrometer that provide a complete radiometric picture of the thermal problem. All models provide thermal and visual imaging and complement both with FLIR’s MSX image enhancement capability. The promotion provides attractive savings across the range of up to £839.

For those seeking the best deal on more sophisticated cameras FLIR has got that covered too.  The FLIR Exx-Series range introduces interchangeable lenses that enable the camera to be used for an even wider variety of tasks. Manual focus also allows the user to dial in the sharpest clarity and finest accuracy. Four models are in this Exx-Series offer the E50 and E60, and their building science counterparts – the E50(bx) and E60(bx).

Until 31 December 2016 customers can take advantage of savings up to £1,908 on these FLIR Exx cameras designed for the professional thermographer. All camera models are covered by FLIR’s industry leading warranty of two years on the product itself, and 10 years on the detector.

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.
