FLIR Systems, Inc. Launches Groundbreaking TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer
Sep 29 14
FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the release of its TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer, a powerful, affordable, compact tool that lets see invisible heat patterns, measure temperatures accurately, and conveniently store images and measurement data for reporting. Built around FLIR's exclusive Lepton(R) micro thermal imaging camera core, the TG165's thermal imaging technology provides users the ability to see where problems exist prior to measuring the severity of the problem with its built-in spot temperature capability. Fast and easy to use, the TG165 lets users get right to work with an intuitive point and shoot capability. Its dual rotating lasers visually mark the size and location of what is being measured, while the on-screen crosshair pinpoints the region on the thermal image. The TG165 is designed to withstand a two-meter drop, making it rugged enough for industrial professionals while offering the simplicity valued by do-it-yourself homeowners.

Sep 23 14
FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the launch of its new AX8 fixed-mount thermal imager. Combining thermal and visible cameras along with FLIR's proprietary MSX technology in a small, affordable package, the AX8 is easy to install in space-constrained areas for automated and uninterrupted condition monitoring of critical electrical and mechanical equipment. Enabled by FLIR's ground-breaking Lepton micro thermal imaging camera core, the AX8 provides early detection of temperature-related issues in electrical and mechanical equipment, guarding against unplanned outages, service interruptions, equipment failure, and fire. The AX8 is the ideal sensing solution for continuous condition monitoring and early fire detection without the need for periodic manual scans. The AX8 thermal imager has 4,800 active temperature points per image, provides streaming temperature data over industry-standard interfaces (Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP) for easy analysis, has a built-in web interface, and includes a full suite of Analysis and Alarm functions that automatically send alerts when the AX8 detects elevated temperatures. Measuring only 54 x 25 x 95 mm, the AX8 integrates easily into electrical installations or any manufacturing environment. The AX8's streaming thermal, visual, and MSX video is output in standard MJPEG, MPEG, H.264 formats, adding multipurpose image capabilities. With all of these features in a compact form factor, the FLIR AX8 addresses the condition monitoring and safety needs for many environments, including: Process and manufacturing industries, Data centers, Energy generation and distribution, Transportation and mass transit, Storage facilities, Refrigeration warehouses and Engine rooms.

Sep 22 14
FLIR Systems, Inc. announced that the FLIR ONE(TM) thermal imaging accessory for smartphones will be available for order online this week across 27 European countries at FLIR.com and in 18 European countries through Apple.com. The award-winning FLIR ONE is a lightweight accessory that transforms an iPhone 5 or 5s into a powerful thermal imager. When paired with its iPhone app, FLIR ONE displays live infrared imagery that allows the user to see the world from a thermal perspective. FLIR ONE detects invisible heat energy, giving consumers the ability to 'see' and measure minute variances in temperature. FLIR ONE enables a host of practical solutions for consumers -- from detecting energy leaks at home to seeing in complete darkness. For the first time, FLIR ONE brings powerful energy saving and situational awareness capabilities to a smart phone platform. Integrating FLIR's ground-breaking Lepton(R) thermal imaging micro-camera core plus a visible camera, the FLIR ONE provides FLIR's patented MSX(R) Technology that brings sharp detail to the thermal images. FLIR ONE serves a broad range of uses, including: Home improvement: Identify heat loss, energy inefficiency, and water leaks; Outdoor adventures: Observe wildlife day or night, survey a campsite, or find a lost pet; Security and safety: See at night, detect intruders, and see through light fog and smoke; Creativity: Observe abstract thermal patterns and create artistic images. FLIR ONE detects a wide range of temperatures and has a spot temperature measurement display. Users can capture either photos or videos and share them via text, email, or social media through the FLIR ONE app, which is available in the Apple App Store. In addition, a variety of artistic and functional FLIR ONE supporting apps are available in the Apple App store that allow users to take close-up photos, time-lapse video, panoramic photos, and hybrid thermal plus visible-light images. FLIR ONE is available at both FLIR.com and Apple.com/euro/store for customers in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
