The FLIR P660 is a hight resolution, off the shelf, hand-held infrared camera which continues to set new benchmarks in image quality for professional thermographers.  

The P660 hand-held infrared camera is packed with new features such as GPS, innovative image processing tool and remote control.  

The P660 hand-held infrared camera has been designed and developed for applications that need superior image quality, temperature measurement accuracy and better thermal image detail.  

Along the way, the P660 hand-held infrared camera has recently been awarded the Plus X award – Europe’s most prestigious awards for innovative design, ease of use/functionality, ergonomics and ecology.   

FLIR also won ‘The Plus X Most Innovative Brand of The Year’ grand- prix.  

The P660’s high resolution 640 x 480 pixel detector with a very high thermal sensitivity of 45 mK can make the difference between seeing or not seeing a thermal anomaly, especially when looking at small or distant targets.   

The FLIR P660 hand-held infrared camera is equipped with a full range of measurement functions and is packed with industry-first features. Its integrated GPS adds value to maintenance in the utilities, energy, telecom, mining, facility management, logistics and other sectors that have to deal with inspection assets scattered over larger areas.  

The GPS data is automatically stored with the infrared imagery, adding location information to inspection reports which guides inspection and field repair teams to the correct sites.      

“FLIR’s engineering power and market insight has resulted in an instrument with groundbreaking features such as GPS, contrast optimization and wireless remote control,” said Roger Christiansz, Managing Director FLIR Systems Australia.  

The P660 also features a Contrast Optimizer, a special algorithm that enhances details in contrast-rich infrared imagery and enables the user to view clearly both the scanned object and its surroundings.  

An optional wireless remote control device steers all vital functions of the infrared as well as the visual camera from a safe distance so that the user can work safely in places that are difficult to access.   

The FLIR P660 carries the Picture-in-Picture function which allows the user to overlay, pan and scale an infrared image on the visual image. As all measurement data are retained, a full analysis of the combined images can be done.  

FLIR's Thermal Fusion functionality enhances the value of an infrared image by allowing the user to overlay it directly over the corresponding visible image in real-time. The functionality combines the benefits of both the infrared image and visual picture at the push of a button. It allows for easier identification and interpretation of infrared images.    

The FLIR P660 hand-held infrared camera system includes a 3.2 megapixel visual camera, a large 5.6” colour LCD, tiltable viewfinder and a 3 hour battery, all in a rugged lightweight magnesium package that weighs less than cameras with a fraction of the resolution and performance features.    

The camera system measures temperatures from -40oC to +500°C in its standard version with an optional measurement of up to +2000 °C. See all the hot spots with the new Thermal Fusion, Picture-in-Picture tools and many other useful measurement functiions.
