Low Weight, High Temperature Range

Each model weighs just 1.82 lbs, and has a temperature range of -4°F to 1,202°F. If you are around high heat, you need one of these imagers.

High Quality Video, Picture-in-Picture

Picture-in-picture is standard on each model as well, along with 3.1 MP video capability. Zooming is an included feature that increases in depth with the E50 and E60. Files are saved in JPEG or MPEG 4 format to the included SD card for either instant or future transferring.

Extra Modern Features

The Exx Series comes with wi-fi connectivity to Apple and Android mobile devices for real-time streaming to separate devices, while MeterLinking can read real-time electrical data from other compatible devices. As always, FLIR Tools software has everything you need for post-processing and image analysis.

The wi-fi connectivity is especially useful for showing both clients and supervisors your findings as you see them. This can cut out a lot of steps and back and forth file sharing on the spot.

Limitations

It’s honestly very hard to find any fault with these infrared imagers. If anything, the temperature range could be even higher, but the 1,202°F limit should be plenty for the vast majority of users.

The high price can be a turnoff for some as well.
