World’s first com­pact full-fea­tured pro­fes­sional ther­mal cam­era

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

FLIR Sys­tems ad­vises the FLIR C2 is now avail­able in the Asia Pa­cific re­gion through FLIR part­ners at AUD990 ex GST. The FLIR C2 is the first full-fea­tured, pocket-sized ther­mal cam­era de­signed to help build­ing pro­fes­sion­als see hid­den heat pat­terns that can re­veal sources of en­ergy loss, signs of struc­tural de­fects, and plumb­ing is­sues.

With its com­pact, sleek de­sign, the C2 fits com­fort­ably into any pocket, mak­ing it one of the most con­ve­nient ther­mal cam­eras on the mar­ket. Pro­fes­sion­als in­clud­ing builders, roofers, home and in­sur­ance in­spec­tors, elec­tri­cians, and re­al­tors can keep the C2 handy while still car­ry­ing other tools and equip­ment. The C2 has a bril­liant, sim­ple-to-use touch screen with auto ori­en­ta­tion, and it is built tough in a rugged cas­ing.

The C2 is pow­ered by FLIR’s patented Lep­ton mi­cro ther­mal de­tec­tor, which cap­tures and dis­plays sub­tle ther­mal pat­terns and small tem­per­a­ture dif­fer­ences us­ing 4,800 pix­els of res­o­lu­tion. The C2’s wide an­gle fixed-fo­cus lens is ideal for view­ing and analysing large ar­eas typ­i­cally found in build­ing in­spec­tions. Plus, the C2 in­cludes a built-in work light and flash that helps il­lu­mi­nate poorly-lit ar­eas com­mon in build­ing in­spec­tion en­vi­ron­ments.

Fea­tur­ing FLIR’s patented MSX real-time im­age en­hance­ment, the C2 cre­ates ther­mal images with en­hanced clar­ity and read­abil­ity. MSX au­to­mat­i­cally em­bosses edge de­tail cap­tured by an on­board vis­i­ble cam­era onto the ther­mal im­age. Num­bers, let­ters, tex­tures, and other fea­tures be­come recog­nis­able with­out com­pro­mis­ing the ther­mal im­age. The ex­tra il­lu­mi­na­tion of the work light also helps en­sure that a brighter vis­i­ble photo is cap­tured along with the C2’s ther­mal im­age.

With quick point-and-shoot op­er­a­tion, the C2 stores ra­dio­met­ric ther­mal and vis­i­ble JPEG images with the push of a but­ton. The images can later be down­loaded with FLIR Tools, free soft­ware that al­lows users to ad­just ther­mal im­age lev­els, iso­late and add tem­per­a­ture mea­sure­ments, change colour palettes, and cre­ate com­pelling re­ports.

“The C2 is one of our most ex­cit­ing new prod­ucts, and we’re thrilled cus­tomers in the APAC re­gion can now ex­pe­ri­ence the power of this pocket-sized ther­mal imager,” said Rickard Lind­vall, Vice Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Manager of FLIR’s In­stru­ments busi­ness seg­ment. “Whether you’re a plumber, HVAC tech, in­spec­tor, roofer, or con­trac­tor, the C2 can give you a dis­tinct ad­van­tage over your com­pe­ti­tion.” The C2 will be avail­able through FLIR part­ners in China, Ja­pan, Korea, Tai­wan, Hong Kong, Sin­ga­pore, Viet­nam, Malaysia, In­done­sia, SE Asia, In­dia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand.­quiry #150629.
