Teledyne FLIR E5 Pro and E6 Pro Cameras Offer Cloud Connectivity

Jan. 4, 2024
Cameras are designed for close-up, professional-grade mechanical, building and electrical thermal inspections.

Today’s effective condition monitoring programs require connected, cloud-enabled thermal imaging devices, which allow inspectors to share and analyze data in real-time quickly and efficiently, according to Rob Milner, global business development director, Teledyne FLIR. He says it helps inspectors gain a better understanding of and provide a more comprehensive view of potential equipment failure, as well as enable organizations to more accurately predict maintenance requirements grounded in easily accessible data and analysis using the company’s Ignite Cloud and Thermal Studio.

FLIR’s expanded Pro Series of thermography cameras provide a larger 3.5-in. touchscreen display and access and cloud connectivity. They are made to detect water intrusion, air leaks, electrical connections, temperature differentials between equipment and impending equipment failure.

Key features of the cameras include:

  • Focus-free thermal imaging capture
  • 640 × 480 screen resolution, 240 × 180 thermal resolution for E6 Pro and 180 × 120 thermal resolution for E5 Pro
  • Built-in 5MP digital cameras and LED lamps as well as the company’s patented Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) capability.

With the MSX capability, which overlays the edge detail of the visible camera upon the thermal image, users experience greater detail and contextual awareness, even in low light, without sacrificing any thermal data. Users can also leverage new on-screen annotations to highlight key findings.

To withstand outdoor and industrial environments, the entire line of Ex Pro cameras are drop-tested up to 2 meters (6.6 ft). The ruggedized form factor also includes an IP54 rating, 25G-shock and 2G vibration test ratings along with a built-in lens cap for added protection.

The cameras offer four hours of continuous operation on one battery and come with essential accessories and software.
