FLIR Systems has announced three Exx-series advanced thermal imaging cameras for electrical, mechanical, and building applications: the FLIR E75, E85, and E95.

The redesigned, WiFi enabled Exx-series features intelligent interchangeable lenses, laser-assisted autofocus modes and area measurement functionality, improvements to FLIR’s patented MSX imaging technology, and a larger, more vibrant 4" touchscreen. These distinctive features, combined with increased sensitivity and increased native resolution, will help professionals identify hot spots or building deficiencies before potential problems become expensive repairs.

In redesigning the Exx-series, FLIR developed a range of compact intelligent, interchangeable lenses that the camera automatically recognises and calibrates, eliminating the need for manual calibration. The Exx-series now also features laser distance measurement that assures precise autofocus to improve temperature measurement accuracy, and specifically for the FLIR E85 and E95 models, provides the data for on-screen area measurement in square feet or metres. In addition, the FLIR E85 and E95 models offer increased thermal detector resolutions with up to 464x348 (161,472 pixels), and measure temperatures up to 1,500°C.

In conjunction with FLIR Tools, the FLIR E75, E85, and E95 are the first Exx cameras to offer UltraMax, FLIR’s embedded, super-resolution process that improves effective resolution by four times – up to 645,888 pixels – and thermal sensitivity by up to 50%. All models also feature significant improvement to FLIR’s MSX technology, which now utilises a 5-megapixel visual camera for improved image clarity and readability. These improvements, combined with a display that is 33% brighter and 30% larger than previous Exx models, yield more vibrant and detailed thermal imagery.

The Exx-series cameras also feature a rugged, water-resistant design, and scratch-resistant Dragontrail cover glass over an optically-bonded, projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreen. A simplified user interface delivers faster, more intuitive operation, and coupled with enhanced WiFi, Bluetooth and Meterlink connectivity, archiving and report generation has never been easier.

“Redesigned from the handle up, the series of FLIR Exx cameras is a significant achievement in terms of advanced functionality, performance, and ease of use in thermal cameras for electro-mechanical, plant, and building inspections,” said Andy Teich, President and CEO at FLIR. “With an ever-broadening base of users who demand thermal cameras that are compact, capable and easy to use, the advanced Exx cameras check every box.”

Oxidisation of high voltage switches, overheated connections, incorrectly secured connections and insulator defects can all be spotted at an early stage with a FLIR Exx camera. It is ideal for troubleshooting low voltage equipment too, typically for detecting high resistance, corroded and poor connections, internal fuse damage and internal circuit breaker faults.
