FLIR Ex-Series Infrared Cameras

Price: $995.00 — $5,995.00

Now you can afford the ultimate inspection tool! FLIR Ex-Series cameras are point-and-shoot thermal imaging cameras that give you access to a new dimension in inspection capability. They are the first cameras with high performance thermal, visible, and MSX imaging at a price starting under $1,000.

A FLIR Ex-Series camera is an affordable replacement for a spot pyrometer, and it can give you a real competitive advantage. You’ll be able to do a better job and serve more customers. They will appreciate dramatic MSX thermal images that clearly reveal problems from sources of energy loss, moisture intrusion, and structural issues, as well as overheating electrical and mechanical equipment.

Features & Benefits

With MSX

With MSX

MSX® Thermal Image Enhancement. MSX adds key details from the onboard visible light camera to the entire infrared image in real time. The result: an all-in-one thermal picture with numbers, labels, and other structural features intact so you’ll instantly recognize where the heat issue is.

Four Resolutions

Affordable Resolution Choices. From the 4,800 pixel thermal image clarity of the E4 to the E8’s incredible 320×240 detector with 76,800 pixels, the Ex-Series cameras offer a resolution to fit the target size, working distance, and detail required for your application, as well as your budget.

One Button Operation. A focus-free lens and simple button navigation to on-screen settings, imaging modes, measurement tools, and saved JPEGs make Ex-Series camera amazingly easy to operate, even with just the press of a single gloved thumb. Camera operation is easy to understand, even for first-time users.

Removable Battery

Removable Battery. The quick-release, tool-type Li-Ion battery is easy to remove, recharge, and snap back in. It can be charged in-camera or with the optional charging station to keep you up and running all day.

Fast Temperature Measurement. All of the Ex-Series cameras feature an on-screen center spotmeter for measuring temperatures. The E5, E6, and E8 also give you an area box tool with an automatic hot or cold spot that hunts down temperature extremes. The E6 and E8 also provide a blue-below and red-above color alarm to quickly alert you to heat issues.

Reliable Results. FLIR’s outstanding thermal accuracy (within 2% or +/- 2°C) and broad measurement range (-20°C to 250°C) provides reliable and repeatable results you can count on.

Four Resolutions

Electrical Panel Picture-in-Picture (E6 & E8)

Multiple Imaging Modes. All Ex-Series cameras let you view thermal, visual, and MSX images and store them simultaneously for further analysis using FLIR Tools software (free download). The E6 and E8 also offer Picture-in-Picture that inserts the thermal image over the visible photo as an extra documentation option. Store hundreds of radiometric thermal, MSX, and visible image JPEGs with all temperature data intact ready to download to your Mac or PC.

Compact, Lightweight, Rugged. FLIR Ex-Series cameras weigh just 1.2 lbs (575g), including battery, and are easy to store in a belt pouch. The rugged design can take up to a 2m drop.
