Electrical and environmental test equipment distributor Instrotech has now added the world’s first full-featured, pocket-sized thermal imaging camera to its product offering. The FLIR C2 has been designed for building industry experts and contractors wanting a portable device capable of finding hidden heat patterns that signal energy waste, structural defects, plumbing issues and more.
Instrotech believes the FLIR C2 will be an incredibly useful and extremely beneficial device in a variety of different work settings. It combines superb functionality with excellent image detail and a great deal of convenience.
About the FLIR C2
Must-have features of the FLIR C2 include:
- MSX real time image enhancement
- High sensitivity
- A wide field of view
- Fully radiometric imagery clearly shows where problems are and verifies the completion of repairs.
One of the FLIR C2’s biggest benefits is its ultra-portable pocket-sized form, which can be carried around anywhere with the greatest of ease. Seeing as it can be utilised at any moment, you won’t miss out on opportunities to inspect building or plumbing work.
Furthermore, the FLIR C2 also allows for more thorough inspections of electrical systems. Therefore, loose connections or overloaded phases can be identified and put right before catching fire or causing injury. This will come as welcome news for electricians or contractors interested in improving safety.
Even though its light and slim profile is incredibly convenient, the brilliant 3-inch intuitive touch screen with auto orientation enables an image to be viewed in great detail. Add into the bargain a built-in LED spotlight, which can be used as a flashlight and for photo illumination, and you’re sure to never miss or fail to notice a thing.
But in spite of these impressive characteristics, the FLIR C2 performs where it matters most too. MSX-enhanced thermal images provide superb detail to help you identify problem areas quickly and efficiently.
On top of that it is fully radiometric, which takes images with 4800 pixels, capable of capturing thermal measurements from -10°C to 150°C. A wide field of view shows everything you need to see while high sensitivity detects subtle temperature differences common in building applications.
Thermal images are also saved as JPEGs instantly, which can then be adjusted and analysed later with FLIR Tools to isolate temperature measurements on any pixel and create informative reports.
Price and key features
Available for £559, the FLIR C2 is a very affordable device and will be a valuable addition to scores of builders and contractors’ toolkits. In addition to the actual camera, you will also receive FLIR Tools professional reporting software - the industry standard in post analysis of thermal images.
With this software, it is also possible to stream video as well, a feature not usually available on low-cost thermal camera systems such as this.
Owners also benefit from FLIR’s 2-10 manufacturer warranty, which covers parts and labour for two years and the detector for ten years.
