FLIR Systems Australia announces that the FLIR E8 thermal camera has won the Red Dot Design Award.
The FLIR E8 won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2014. The Red Dot award is established internationally as one of the most sought-after quality marks for good design, with the expert jury appraising the products submitted according to different criteria such as innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics, sustainability, symbolic and emotional content, and whether a product is self-explanatory.
FLIR Systems developers teamed up with HOWL to find the optimal design for a thermal camera that met the needs of a professional user.
Key design features of FLIR E8 thermal imaging cameras include balanced design for one hand operation; can be operated with a gloved hand; withstands tough working environments; simple user interface, eliminating the need for manuals; and latest user interface ‘Dark Precision’ developed for readability with the touchscreen placing all functions at the user’s fingertips.
