Skyrocketing energy prices, unhealthy environments and subsequent maintenance issues in industrial, commercial, and residential applications increase the demand for affordable instruments that quickly diagnose operational problems.
FLIR Systems has launched the FLIR i5, a small and lightweight multipurpose, handheld infrared camera.
Infrared cameras detect, spot and measure temperature differences over entire surfaces, which develop in virtually all electrical, mechanical and building applications. Their use avoids cost-intensive failures, equipment damage and energy spill.
The FLIR i5, available from Vitech Reliability Systems , has a weight of 340g and a length of 22cm, making it light and compact.
FLIR Systems has considerably simplified the use of the infrared camera. The FLIR i5 produces instant, point-and-shoot JPEG infrared imagery, that, as with every full-fledged infrared camera, carries all required temperature data and that can be stored internally or externally, sent and analysed.
The FLIR i5 measures temperatures up to +250°C and detects temperature differences as small as 0.10° C, displayed on the camera’s 2.8” LCD display.
Its temperature measurement range suits several applications in electrical, mechanical, and building environments. A long-life battery ensures up to 5 hours of continuous operation.
The FLIR i5 comes with the FLIR QuickReport software for image analysis and easy creation of reports in PDF format, a 512MB mini SD Card, a Li-Ion rechargeable battery with charger, USB cable, hand strap and manuals and user CDs available in 21 languages.
“Designing and producing the FLIR i5 has required our extensive engineering experience of more than 40 years in the market, as well as setting up a volume-oriented manufacturing plant that we recently acquired”, says Arne Almerfors, President of the FLIR Systems Thermography Division.
“The introduction of the FLIR i5 product is an excellent addition to an already strong product lineup and highlights our leadership in the Thermography market”
