FLIR C2 Compact Thermal Imager

Price: $699.00



The very affordable FLIR C2 is the world’s first full-featured, pocket-sized thermal camera designed for a wide range of building and electrical/mechanical applications. With a C2 in your pocket, you will always be prepared to find hidden heat patterns that reveal energy waste and potential failures. Fully radiometric imagery clearly displays electrical hotspots, structural defects, plumbing clogs, HVAC issues, and much more.

FLIR C2 easily fits in your pocket!

Pocket, Portable, and Ready to Go
The slim, light profile of the FLIR C2 fits comfortably in any work pocket, so you can always keep it at hand. Never miss an opportunity to uncover invisible structural defects or energy issues, and show them to customers or managers. Use your C2 as a non-destructive assessment tool and a reliable way to verify the success of completed repairs.

Show More with Sensitive Thermal Imaging and a Wide FOV
The C2’s 4800-pixel resolution, high sensitivity detector captures and displays subtle thermal patterns and small temperature differences. A generous 45° field-of-view frames in more of the scene the way pros need to see it.

FLIR C2 MSX Image Enhancement Comparison

MSX® Image Enhancement Only From FLIR
FLIR’s unique MSX® feature is built into the C2. MSX adds key details from the onboard visible light camera to the entire infrared image in real time. The result is an all-in-one, undiluted thermal picture with visible light features that lets you instantly recognize where the problematic heat pattern is. MSX® is real-time whether watching the camera’s LCD or streaming video over USB.

Full Radiometric Flexibility for Powerful Reports
Save thermal image JPEGs instantly, then conveniently adjust and analyze them later with FLIR Tools to isolate temperature measurements on any pixel and create convincing reports. JPEG images from the C2 store 4,800 individual measurements that can be post analyzed using the FLIR Tools software that is included with the camera. You can analyze, change color palettes, and access both thermal and visible imagery to create convincing reports.
