thermal imaging cameras
Making their first public appearance are the new FLIR E75, E85 and E95 thermal imaging cameras. These wi-fi-enabled cameras feature intelligent interchangeable lenses, laser-assisted autofocus modes and area measurement functionality, improvements to the patented FLIR MSX imaging technology and a larger, more vibrant 4in touchscreen. These are also the first Exx-Series camera to offer UltraMax, the FLIR embedded super-resolution process that improves effective resolution by four times and thermal sensitivity by up to 50 per cent.
UltraMax was first introduced in the FLIR T-Series models. This camera range – designed for professional thermographers – includes the FLIR T1K, the world’s first 1024 x 768 pixels handheld model and features a rotating optical block for easy imaging whatever the application. In total, eight models complete the FLIR T-Series, each providing class-leading sensitivity for outstanding image quality and accurate problem diagnosis.
Continuous condition and safety monitoring with thermal imaging is easily achieved with the FLIR A-Series cameras. The FLIR AX8, for example, combines thermal and visual modes in a single and affordable package, providing continuous temperature monitoring and alarm capabilities to protect critical electrical and power generation assets. It helps guard against outages, service interruptions and failures while eliminating the need for periodic manual scans.
FLIR Systems’ development of the Lepton thermal micro core, the size of a mobile SIM, has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience. In combination with another new FLIR technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM – the micro core has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.
 IGM will be a main focus on the FLIR stand as it dramatically reduces troubleshooting time. It allows maintenance professionals to work smarter and more efficiently by visually guiding them to temperature problems that are invisible to the naked eye. In this way IGM elevates test tools to a whole new level of functionality, saving valuable maintenance time. 
This technology is now provided on a wide range of FLIR Test and Measurement tools including clamp meters and multimeters.  Having located the overheating fault with thermal imaging, the user quantifies and confirms values on the meters.   

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.
