FLIR's latest thermal imaging camera is more robust than its predecessors.

It has ingress protection to IP43, yet has an entry-level price of £895, excluding VAT, Cameras in the new i-Series can withstand a 2m drop test onto a hard surface without any detrimental effect. The wide scope of the technology means a thermal imaging camera may be in daily use. In recognition of this, FLIR has made its new i-Series suitable for use in harsh environments.

The FLIR i5 produces an image of 100 x 100 pixels, an improvement of 56% on the company's previous generation model. The FLIR i7 features a 140 x 140 pixel array, providing an increased image quality of 36%. Both have a wide field of view. Basic operation can be grasped within minutes. Thermal images are stored in JPEG format on an SD card or in the camera's internal memory; all temperature data is automatically embedded in the image. Dependant on model, the camera comes with analysis tools such as spot meters, areas and isotherms.
