The future just snuck up on me. This is a real game changer! Tru-Thermal Imaging from your phone from FLIR.
“Our mantra is ‘Infrared Everywhere’”, says Andy Teich, CEO of FLIR, “and we really view infrared becoming the sixth sense for human activity to ‘see’ what’s out there in ways the human eye can’t.”
Get your sixth sense in gear for $350. The FLIR One will certainly stimulate the mass market for IR imaging. Learn more HERE and see videos HERE and HERE.
Availability for the FLIR ONE is slated for spring 2014. It will come in colors to match your iPhone (R) (the first compatible devices are iPhone(R) 5 & 5S). In addition to thermal and standard camera elements the unit packs its own rechargeable battery for two hours of power or for use to boost iPhone(R) battery life. A nice touch!
TruTech Tools was pleased to be present at FLIR’s distributor launch of nine new Thermal Imaging Cameras and an exciting line of new Test and Measurement products. FLIR’s President and CEO, Andy Teich gave a superb overview of FLIR’s mission to take “IR everywhere.” Teich noted how FLIR provides a customer focused package of Design, Functionality, Value, Ruggedness, and Support in everything they do. Additionally, FLIR has created a complete ecosystem for managing information with apps and software along with BlueTooth and WiFi enabled products that combine physical measurement data and thermal images to maximize your efforts and share your results. Traditional IR imaging only allows you to see beyond visible rages into the world of heat signatures. Kudos to FLIR for incorporating their patented Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging technology (MSX) into ALL E-Series cameras, even the $995 Model E-4. Rather than simply blending visual and thermal images (dilution), MSX takes thermal image quality to the next level by augmenting a thermal image with details from a visible image. In one sense, there is almost no longer a need for a separate digital image as FLIR’s new MSX technology embosses digital camera detail right into thermal images. Seeing Is Believing

MSX TECHNOLGY AND DARK PRECISION, TOGETHER The new Thermal Imaging Cameras include the all new E4, E5, E6, and E8 models, the second generation E40, E50, and E60 and the utra-performance T-600 and T-600bx. Starting at $995, with a camera for all budget ranges, the new E-Series models feature FLIR’s patented Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging technology (MSX) which raises key visible details from an on-board high resolution digital camera onto the infrared image. MSX makes it much easier to identify and locate issues while preserving the full integrity of the thermal image. FLIR’s new Dark Precision interface is simple but powerful, making the cameras easier than ever to use. Details on each of these new E-Series cameras can be found HERE.

THE NEXT GENERATION OF TEST AND MEASUREMENT FLIR’s new line of test and measurement products builds upon 50 years of work serving military, government, and commercial customers, with a commitment to innovation, quality, and reliability. What impressed us most, about the new line of T&M products was the added features designed to meet the needs of customers to solve tough, real-world, field problems. Problems like ghost voltages from VFD’s and lighting in the work-space were considered and addressed. The NEW T&M line includes the CM78 Clamp Meter, CM83 RMS Power Clamp, MR77 Pinless Moisture Psychrometer, DM93 True RMS Industrial Mulitmeter, and the VP50 Non-Contact Voltage Detector and Flashlight. All these high-end T&M products include powerful (nearly blinding!) work lights and IR thermometers, and METERLINK (BlueTooth) technology which lets you wirelessly add readings of electrical and moisture data to the infrared image on your FLIR Cameras (Exx series and up). Even the non-contact voltage detector includes a powerful work-light and indicates by vibration in your palm, not in your fingertips – a sensation you don’t want to feel when looking for “hot” lines!
