FLIR Infrared Cameras & Thermal Imaging has introduced a new range of thermal imaging cameras in its T-Series line-up featuring new updates and capabilities.

Designed to help streamline thermal inspections for intensive electrical, mechanical and utility predictive maintenance programs, the fresh line-up of T-Series thermal cameras includes the updated T420 and T440 models with 320x240 thermal resolution, and the feature-rich T620 and T640, both of which offer FLIR’s best handheld thermal detector resolution at 640x480 (307,200) pixels.

Every model includes FLIR’s patented MSX enhancement that highlights thermal images with key visible details in real time for easier recognition.

Some of the benefits in the new FLIR T-Series thermal imaging cameras include flexible ergonomics, fast communication from the field and a holistic thermography solution for greater workflow efficiency. FLIR’s unique rotating optical block lets users easily aim overhead, under equipment and from other tough angles while keeping the large LCD in comfortable view.

All cameras in the new T-Series line-up include the Auto-Orientation feature, which automatically keeps onscreen temperature measurement data upright for easier viewing, whether the camera is framed for landscape or portrait imaging.

The T-Series thermal camera’s intuitive user interface is further simplified with touchscreen tools, making it a breeze to access menus, add temperature measurement spot meters and area boxes, change colour palettes, set parameters, and switch imaging modes. The T620 and T640 models feature a new capacitive touchscreen for navigation with smartphone-like simplicity. Keypad buttons on all the latest models have been optimised to make it easier to activate the interface wearing gloves.

The new FLIR T-Series cameras retain proven functionalities such as fast Wi-Fi communication that connects cameras to Apple and Android devices; the free FLIR Tools Mobile app that enables thermographers to import, analyse and share images, and reports immediately directly from the inspection site; and live video streaming by the app to proximate devices for safer monitoring.

Wireless connectivity also extends to FLIR MeterLink test instruments that can send readings directly to T-Series cameras via Bluetooth, automatically embedding electrical load and other critical data into radiometric thermal images as they are captured.
