All the latest ahead of FLIR at Futurebuild

  • 21 Jan 2019

Futurebuild 2019 looks all set to be a busy event for the FLIR Systems; here’s a little insight into what to expect from the company at the show, taking place from 5 – 7 March at ExCeL London.

Another new camera that pushes the boundaries

For building inspection and the prevention of energy loss, a thermal imaging camera is now considered an essential tool; FLIR Systems’ continuous development strategy means this industry is provided with an exceptional choice of products.

Year after year, FLIR Systems introduces new infrared features and capabilities that help users do their job quicker and more efficiently – 2019 is no exception.

This is with Futurebuild 2019 being confirmed as the UK launch platform for a new infrared camera, as well as a showcase for the latest technological developments in test and measurement instrumentation.

FLIR Systems is now the market leader in thermal imaging; more than 10% of its revenue is reinvested in research and development and the company now has its most extensive range of camera models, accessories and software to suit every building application and budget.

Supporting them is FLIR Systems’ industry leading warranty provision – two years on the camera, five years on the battery and ten years on the detector.

Award winners

One of most recent to be introduced and making its UK exhibition debut at Futurebuild 2019 is the FLIR E53.

FLIR E53

This entry-level model in the award winning Exx-Series, that brings advanced thermal imaging within the reach of many more building professionals who need this technology to identify building deficiencies, features a 4-inch touchscreen with 160 degree viewing angle and, as with all Exx models, includes MSX technology that uses a 5-megapixel visual camera to improve image clarity, perspective and readability.

Representative of the FLIR professional models is the FLIR T500, a camera that was named Red Dot: Best of the Best winner for 2018 – this was given the award for its groundbreaking design, that combines superb ergonomics in a ruggedized high-performance thermal imager.

All cameras in the FLIR T500 series provide high quality imaging through Vision Processing™, which combines proprietary adaptive filtering with the readability of FLIR multi-spectral imaging (MSX®) and the image enhancement of UltraMax®.

With thermal resolutions up to 464 x 348 (161,472 pixels) and superior sensitivity and image clarity, thermographers can easily identify subtle temperature differences; essential for building science applications.

Meters too

Two important FLIR Systems developments have also led to the introduction of a unique range of test and measurement instruments.

The first breakthrough was the introduction of the Lepton thermal micro-camera core, a detector that is about the size of a smart phone SIM.

This, together with FLIR’s Infrared Guided Measurement (IGM™) technology, is at the heart of a range of meters that have thermal imaging capability.
