E-Series Handheld IR Camera

High Thermal Sensitivity
NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., May 12 -- The new, compact ThermaCAM EX320 from Flir Systems, with a true, built-in 320 x 240 pixel array, provides four times the resolution of any handheld camera in its size and price range.

In addition to a high-resolution, maintenance-free, uncooled FPA infrared detector, the EX320 -- the latest in Flir's E-series line of IR cameras -- boasts unusually high thermal sensitivity (to 0.08° C) and image quality (76,800 picture elements in each image).
   "A common mistake people make when buying an infrared camera is they don't understand the resolution of the camera's detector," said John Keane, Flir's director of sales. "A 160 x 120 detector has 19,200 pixels; however, a 320 x 240 detector has four times the resolution, at 76,800 pixels. This allows you to see all targets much more clearly and identify problems more easily. It also allows you to see targets from much further away and still get an accurate temperature measurement. These are significant advantages when performing IR inspections."

Professional thermographers who wish to enhance their service offerings will appreciate the combination of extremely accurate temperate measurement with enhanced high-resolution imagery provided by the EX320. As many experienced thermographers know, identifying a problem and making an inaccurate assessment can hinge on differences of just a few degrees in temperature, and the wrong outcomes can have costly and dangerous consequences.

   Calibrated thermal images can be captured and recalled using the EX320's on-board memory. Its radiometric JPEG image format allows the user to go back to any image at any time to add and remove spots, measure temperatures and perform analysis that may have been missed in the field. Thermal images and measurements stored in the camera's memory may be easily downloaded to a PC, using ThermaCAM Quickview software (included) and standard USB or serial cables, for later retrieval and analysis.

The ultraportable EX 320 is built to operate in the harshest weather conditions and industrial environments. Dust- and splash-proof, it meets IP 54 standards and will not seize up in either extreme cold or hot temperature variances. Its exclusive ambient temperature compensation (ATC) technology assures accuracy under the most challenging weather conditions.
Optional lenses are available, including a telescope lens that is ideal for inspecting distant targets, such as overhead lines and a wide-angle lens that nearly doubles the standard field of view for evaluating large objects, such as roofs or electrical panels close up.

Flir is offering an EX320 "value package." For a limited time, those who purchase this offering will receive ImageBuilder software, a $2500 value, at no additional charge. ImageBuilder enables multiple IR images to be combined into a larger composite that displays critical measurement data and image detail. ImageBuilder is ideal for inspecting large targets like buildings and oversized equipment.
