    FLIR C5 Compact Thermal Camera

    Black Friday Sale 2020: Discount available on this product (sale ends 1/12/20)

    The FLIR C5 Compact Thermal Camera is a professional, hand-held thermal camera ideal for facility maintenance, building inspections, electrical repair, HVAC/R and many more troubleshooting tasks. Despite its lightweight design, this powerful instrument includes a 160 x 120 true thermal imaging camera alongside a 5 megapixel visual camera. This combination allows the operator to quickly and easily find hidden temperature faults, significantly reducing diagnostic time.

    With a tactile 3.5 inch integrated touchscreen, the FLIR C5 Compact Thermal Camera utilises an intuitive system for quick inspection and documentation. Using 1-Touch Level/Span the camera auto-adjusts the level and span with a single prompt, without unnecessary time spent manually making thermal adjustments. The incorporated FLIR MSX (Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging) technology incorporates visual detail and embosses them onto the full thermal image. The FLIR C5 includes a temperature range of -20˚C to 400˚C, a picture in picture feature and 6 colour palettes for instantly locating a thermal issue.

    Featuring a built-in Wi-Fi connection, transfer data directly from the FLIR C5 to FLIR Ignite, an accessible cloud based storage space for uploading and organising images which have been sent directly from on-site. You can also store up to 5000 images in standard JPEG format within the internal memory, adding annotations to images for easy identification. Provide customers with professional reports including images of the problem and subsequent repairs, sent securely using a password-protected link via email.

    FLIR C5 Compact Thermal Camera In Use

    Pocket-sized, the FLIR C5 Compact Thermal Camera discovers hot fuses, air leaks, plumbing issues and much more. With an IP54 rated enclosure for protection against dust and water, the camera is designed to withstand a 2m drop and can be stowed easily in a crowded tool kit. The bright LED flashlights makes it easy to identify hidden problems in the darkest areas, while the USB interface port and rechargeable built-in lithium ion battery provide 4 hours of constant run time.
