Thermal imaging cameras
FLIR Systems has introduced the T530 and T540 professional thermal imaging cameras, designed for thermographers who operate in a variety of environments including power generation, electrical distribution, and research laboratories. These new cameras offer enhanced ergonomics with 180-degree rotating optical blocks, laser-assisted autofocus, and auto-calibrating lenses that are interchangeable with select FLIR camera models.
 
FLIR designed the T500-Series to reduce the strain of continual thermal inspections by offering a 180-degree rotating optical block. With the ability to rotate the camera further, thermographers can image targets overhead, below, or even around obstructions from a comfortable position. Featuring AutoCal optics, the lenses can be shared between T500-Series models or with the new line of FLIR Exx-Series cameras without the need for secondary pairing or factory recalibration. These intelligent lenses produce crisp imagery and use laser distance measurement data during autofocus to achieve high temperature measurement accuracy.
 
T500-Series cameras provide distinguished thermal imaging quality through FLIR Vision Processing, which combines proprietary adaptive filtering with the readability of FLIR’s MSX technology and the image enhancement of UltraMax. With thermal resolutions up to 464×348 (161,472 pixels) and superior sensitivity and image clarity, thermographers can identify subtle temperature differences aided by a 4-inch touchscreen display that is four-times the resolution of comparable cameras.
 

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.
