Compact design and radiometric imagery for the fast troubleshooting and powerful reports that building professionals need

FLIR Systems has launched the FLIR C2, the first fully-featured, pocket-sized thermal camera designed to help building professionals identify hidden heat patterns that clearly show where problems are, such as sources of energy waste, signs of structural defects, plumbing issues and more.

Its compact and slim design enables the FLIR C2 to fit comfortably into any pocket, available for immediate use to uncover invisible building issues and to show customers where potential problems are located. In fact, at 125 80 24 mm (4.9 3.1 0.94 in.) and 130g (0.29lbs), the sleek architecture makes the C2 the most convenient, fully-featured thermal camera available on the market.

Featuring FLIRs patented MSX real-time image enhancement and a brilliant, simple-to-use touch screen with auto orientation, the camera creates thermal images with stunning details to help identify problem locations easier. MSX adds key details (captured by the onboard visible camera) to the C2s thermal images so numbers, letters, texture and other features are clearly recognizable without compromising the thermal image.

The C2s 4800-pixel resolution high sensitivity detector captures and displays subtle thermal patterns and small temperature differences useful in building applications. The wide 41 field-of-view frames in more of the scene. Plus, the C2 includes a built-in work light and flash that helps illuminate poorly lit areas common in building inspection environments. The extra illumination also ensures that a brighter visible photo is able to be captured along with the C2s thermal image.

With a simple point-and-shoot operation, the FLIR C2 can store radiometric JPEGs with the push of a button. The images can be downloaded later using the free FLIR Tools software that allows the user to adjust thermal image levels, isolate and add temperature measurements, change colour palettes, and create persuasive reports.

The C2 is not only a convenient tool to help you get more done and take advantage of every opportunity to uncover issues, but also helps you verify the success of completed repairs for your customers, said Rickard Lindvall, FLIR Vice President & General Manager of FLIRs instruments business sector. By offering FLIR C2 for less than 600, we hope to help put this powerful tool into the hands of more professionals who can really use it whether youre a building industry expert, contractor, energy auditor, retrofitter, inspector, roofer, HVAC technician or plumber.

Priced at 559 (MSRP Ex. VAT), the FLIR C2 will be available from FLIR partners in early March 2015.
