FLIR systems is one of the world’s largest company having its expertise and in manufacturing and development of thermal imaging camera. Some other imaging sensors are also being developed by this company. Established in 1978, this company has produced many sensitive and advanced thermal cameras for military and commercial use. Company commenced to produce airborne IR systems for defense purposes (FLIR C2 Thermal Imaging System Review by whichsolderingstation) Later on, company attained indigo systems, which was a leading manufacturer of thermal cameras and thermal detectors. FLIR is the most versatile company in the field of thermal imagery. The head quarter of the company is located in Wilsonville, Oregon, USA.
There are certain factor which should be kept in mind before buying thermal cameras to enjoy maximum output. Ergonomic feature makes thermal cameras more easy to use. It has all the useful and necessary interfaces i.e. HDMI, Wi-Fi and USB etc. Thermal cameras will have large temperature range and spot locating feature. Cameras have visible light feature which becomes more useful in dark areas or at night. Most of the thermal cameras have low resolution and most of the work is done by detector. The resolution of detector determines the quality of the image. Resolution of LCD and detector can be sync-ed with one another to get optimum results.
FLIR C2 thermal imaging system is very high speed, versatile and compatible thermal camera that can be easily fit to the pocket. It has operating temperature range of 14 to 122 degree Fahrenheit and storage temperature range of -48 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit. For environment visibility, it has a built-in LED flash light. Enhanced images with MSX gives more details to thermal images. A professional software is included to develop the thermal images on industry standards. Radiometric images store 4800 pixels and is capable of capturing thermal images from -10 to 150 degrees centigrade. It weighs 1.1 pounds which makes is easier to carry and use. It is highly sensitive and wide 45 degrees field of view. It is widely used to find hidden heat patterns, structural damages and plumbing issues. It has highly sensitive detector which can capture subtle temperature differences. (FLIR C2 Thermal Imaging System Review by whichsolderingstation) It can analyze, change colors palettes, and access both thermal and visual pictures to create more convincing reports. It can also find the invisible moisture leaks and show you the exact damage location. It can also scan equipment for heated electric equipment. It can also spot the gaps in pipes, refrigeration issues, and duct wall spots etc. It can also spot missing insulation spots and other energy waste culprits.
Thermal imaging is becoming more and more useful in almost every area of interest. Companies are developing more sensitive and advanced thermal cameras to get more detailed results. FLIR C2 is very useful and advanced products due to its size and ease of use. Sensitivity and reliability of this camera attracts the researchers from all around the globe.
