Product Details

FLIR E54 Advanced Thermal Imaging Camera

The FLIR E54 Advanced Thermal Imaging Camera, as the entry point into the impressive FLIR Exx Series is designed specifically for professionals in building inspection, electrical and predictive maintenance. As building issues are often difficult to spot with the naked eye, the E54 offers the sensitivity & resolution needed for basic condition monitoring and inspection. This not only improves efficiency and makes it considerably easier to identify potential problems before an expensive repair is needed, but crucially makes it extremely easy to visually display the problem to the client. This thermal imaging camera has a a 320 x 240 pixel thermal detector which can accurately measure temperatures up to 650˚C (1202˚F), and a thermal sensitivity/NETD of <40mK at 30˚C (86˚F).

Find, fix and document problems swiftly with the FLIR E54 and its list of impressive diagnosis features. Alongside 3 spotmeters, 6 colour palettes and a FLIR-Screen EST mode the E54 utilises FLIR 1-Touch Level/Span to improve image contrast & draw attention to potential issues. The Max/Min temperatures can be displayed live on screen while report generation is made simpler by the addition of automatic GPS image tagging and voice annotations via either the built-in mic or Bluetooth connection. Other features include a Picture-in-Picture mode and a 5MP digital camera with incorporated LED Photo/Video lamp & 1-4x digital zoom.

With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connective capability the E54 Thermal Imaging Camera also includes a USB 2.0 port, DisplayPort & laser pointer. The 640 x 480 pixel 4" LCD touchscreen display with auto-rotation of the FLIR E54 is simple and intuitive to use. Store images in the removable SD memory card, with several storage modes including Infrared, Visual, MSX®, Picture-in-Picture & Gallery. When in Infrared mode save JPEG files with all of the measurement data included. This thermal instrument is METERLiNK enabled to make it compatible with other FLIR devices and comes supplied with its own sturdy carrying case & cable set: USB 2.0 A to USB Type-C, USB Type-C to HDMI and USB Type-C to USB Type-C.

FLIR Thermal Studio & FLIR Inspection Route

The FLIR Exx-Series including the E54 all come equipped with the exclusive FLIR Inspection Route feature automatically enabled within the device. This mode will guide the operator along a predetermined route through multiple locations, organising images and data by each inspected asset. The route is first created in FLIR Thermal Studio (with the Route Creator Plugin installed) before being downloaded to the camera for streamlined inspections, swift post-processing and rapid reporting.

State of the art analysis & reporting software, the FLIR Thermal Studio Suite compatible with the E54 is designed to assist in managing thousands of images and videos. Offered in three versions - Starter, Standard, and Pro - the software is compatible all cameras which generate images in radiometric JPG format. With the plugin included, users can build a route within FLIR Thermal Studio which includes as many inspection targets as necessary, all organised for maximum efficiency.

This user-created route is then exported to the FLIR E54 camera, allowing thermographers who must inspect large numbers over the course of a day to follow a pre-defined route collecting data in a structured manner. Automatically collecting & organising for seamless importing back into the FLIR Thermal Studio. This system ensures nothing is missed, all results are organised and vastly speeds up inspection time.

FLIR MSX Technology

The Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX) feature of the FLIR E54 Advanced Thermal Imaging Camera produces crisp, vibrant imagery only achievable through FLIR's patented technology. For added detail and perspective the MSX function incorporates visual detail and embosses it directly onto the full thermal image. Components presented in this format are so clear that even the text of a label becomes readable, aiding greatly in identifying the context and issue of the thermal problem.
