New Low-Cost Thermal Cameras Feature Lepton Microcamera Core
Wilsonville, OR -(AmmoLand.com)- FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced two compact thermal camera products that will be showcased at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week: the FLIR Scout TK thermal vision monocular and the FLIR TG130 spot thermal camera.
Both products feature FLIR’s revolutionary low-cost Lepton microcamera core that has made thermal imaging technology more accessible for applications at home, work, and play.
The FLIR Scout TK thermal vision monocular, the smallest and lightest camera in the FLIR Scout series, is developed specifically for outdoor enthusiasts. Pocket-sized and designed for one-handed use, the Scout TK allows consumers to see in total darkness and become better aware of their surroundings. With more than five hours of battery life, the Scout TK detects body heat of people and animals, or helps identify key landmarks. Whether camping, fishing, or hiking, the rugged Scout TK provides outdoor enthusiasts with the power to fully explore and visualize their surroundings regardless of the environmental conditions.
The FLIR TG130 spot thermal camera is an entry-level camera for a broad spectrum of home and small business applications. By simply pointing the TG130 at an object, anyone can identify energy and temperature-related issues within and around a structure. From finding drafts, detecting heat loss around doors and windows, or locating areas of missing insulation, the TG130 pinpoints problems and helps users increase a home’s energy efficiency.
“Our two latest Lepton-based products help deliver on FLIR’s mission to provide people a sixth sense to enhance personal awareness and improve productivity in their mission, work, or personal lives,” said Andy Teich, CEO and President of FLIR. “We are excited to introduce these two new products that are bringing the power of thermal imaging to a whole new class of customers.”
The FLIR Scout TK will begin shipping worldwide in the first quarter of 2016 for $599. Consumers can pre-register for the product at www.flir.com/scouttk. The FLIR TG130 will be available worldwide through FLIR distributors and retailers in the first quarter of 2016 for $249.
