At CES 2017 this month, FLIR launched a new compact rugged thermal camera that they have named the FLIR C3.
It features an integrated thermal imaging scanner that has been designed for anyone who needs to inspect thermals on the go, such as contractors or even people who do laptop reviews.
But it’s not just heat that the C3 can detect, it can also be used to detect moisture, electrical problems, and heat leaks.
To control it, the C3 features a 3-inch touchscreen monitor and built-in wireless connectivity for wirelessly transmitting imagery to your smartphone or tablet.Designed to be the go-to tool on the job, this dedicated, compact, rugged thermal camera fits perfectly in your pocket and is great for building inspection, facilities maintenance, HVAC, or electrical repair.
FLIR explained more about it with the following:
With a three-inch touchscreen and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, the FLIR C3 allows you to quickly share captured images and video with employers, customers, and colleagues to save time and improve productivity. Connect the FLIR C3 to a smartphone or tablet with the FLIR Tools Mobile app, and instantly transfer images, build a report, and send them off without leaving your jobsite.
The FLIR C3 has professional level features like those found in higher-end FLIR thermal cameras, like on-screen measurement tools. Using the C3’s Hot Spot or Cold Spot feature, you can quickly measure within a defined area box. The camera will display a spot meter, as well as the maximum or minimum temperature, so you can instantly see where it’s the hottest or coldest.
The FLIR C3 includes both the FLIR Lepton thermal micro-camera and a visible camera. Through FLIR’s patented MSX® technology, we emboss the thermal image over the visible image to create a crisp, fully radiometric image.
