Lower entry price for thermal imaging

Flir, thermal imaging camera

Flir now offers a thermal imaging camera for £895, which is said to make it the cheapest fully featured thermal imaging camera on the market. The Flir i3 is described as a quality product with a low price that has been achieved through economies of scale. Its thermal images of 60 pixels square are of excellent quality for first-time users. The images have a spot meter in the centre that allows temperature to be read accurately. Temperature differences of just 0.15 K can be detected.

The performance of the Flir i3 is 3600 times better than that of a spot pyrometer. Whereas a spot pyrometer records temperature at just one point, the i3 has 3600 measurement points, enabling it to scan an entire area or structure.

Thermal images are stored in JPEG format on a removable SC card, complete with all temperature data. This camera comes with Flir QuickReport software for image analysis and the rapid generation of inspection reports. It is also compatible with the more powerful Flir Reported software.
