There are no limits on thermal inspection productivity with next-gen t-series advancements.

Designed to help streamline thermal inspections for intensive electrical, mechanical and utility predictive maintenance programs, the fresh line-up of T-Series cameras includes the updated T420 and T440 with 320x240 thermal resolution, and the feature-rich T620 and T640, both of which offer FLIR's best handheld thermal detector resolution at 640x480 (307,200) pixels.

Every model includes FLIR's patented MSX®, enhancement that highlights thermal images with key visible details in real time for easier recognition.

Flexible ergonomics, fast communication from the field and a holistic thermal imaging solution for greater workflow efficiency are what set T-Series cameras apart. A major advantage is FLIR's unique rotating optical block that lets users easily aim overhead, under equipment and from other tough angles while keeping the large LCD in comfortable view.

To help reduce fatigue even more, all of the new T-Series cameras include Auto-Orientation which automatically keeps on screen temperature measurement data upright for easier viewing whether the camera is framed for landscape or portrait imaging.

Upping the game on its intuitive user interface, FLIR has further simplified T-Series' touchscreen tools, making it a breeze to access menus, add temperature measurement spot meters and area boxes, change colour palettes, set parameters, and switch imaging modes for example.

The T620, and T640 feature a new capacitive touchscreen for navigation that's as familiar as a smartphone's. And the keypad buttons on all of the latest models have been optimized to make it easier to activate the interface with gloves on.

These advancements complement other industry-first benefits that FLIR T-Series cameras are already renowned for, including fast Wi-Fi communication that connects cameras to Apple® and Android™ devices. Using the free FLIR Tools Mobile app, thermographers can import, analyse and share images and reports immediately directly from the inspection site.

In addition, the app can stream live video to nearby devices for safer monitoring. Wireless connectivity also extends to FLIR MeterLink® test instruments that can send readings directly to T-Series cameras via Bluetooth®, automatically embedding electrical load and other critical data into radiometric thermal images as they're captured.

With more considerations to help boost productivity and ease heavy inspection workloads, FLIR's T-Series cameras have become the thermal imager of choice among the busiest professional thermographers across a wide range of industrial applications.
