    FLIR E85 In Use

    The FLIR E85 Thermal Imaging Camera is part of FLIR’s advanced thermal camera range for building applications. It has a wide measurement range of -20˚C to 1200˚C and this is rendered via a 384 x 288 pixel thermal sensor which provides extremely clear thermal images and videos. The extremely high thermal sensitivity of 30mK means that air and surface temperature differences of just 0.03˚C are shown on the vibrant 4” colour display. The FLIR E85 is the It is the perfect IR camera for improving reliability and safety in plants and troubleshooting in buildings because the accurate (±2˚C to 2%) temperature measurement and precise depiction renders signs of malfunction visible - hot spots, moisture or air leaks, for example - before they present a safety hazard or affect production.

    The bright screen has a range of different colour palette options whilst on-screen area measurement of moisture patches gives an immediate indication as to the extent of a leak. Laser-assisted autofocus helps keep images clear whilst extra detail and perspective is added by the MSX® function which makes use of the integrated 5.0 megapixel digital camera. The FLIR E85’s maximum field of view is 42˚ but closer inspection is possible with 24˚ and 14˚ lenses which can be selected on the menu above. An exact temperature reading is provided alongside the thermal image and an array of alarms highlight potential problems. Furthermore, there are three measurement spots which can be adjusted according to the user’s preferences.

    FLIR E85 IR Image

    The touch-screen interface is supplemented by intuitive menus, options, triggers and buttons whilst the light, ergonomic shape is easy to handle when carrying out extensive inspections. An included SD card has space for thousands of images and videos alongside their visible-light counterparts and these can be downloaded through USB or via wi-fi to smart devices. Meterlink® connectivity also allows communication with FLIR moisture meters. Furthermore, once downloaded, images from the FLIR E85 can be enhanced using UltraMax software and FLIR Tools+ for purposes such as audits and insurance claims as well as plant troubleshooting. The user can add voice annotations to files which means that notes can be appended seamlessly during operation.

    The FLIR E85 comes supplied with a range of different accessories and allows the user to make swift, accurate inspections of plants and structures in order to catch faults before they develop into major problems. The product has FLIR’s impressive 2-10 warranty and can stand up to the rigours of regular field use.

    Thermal Imaging for Detecting Elevated Body Temperature

    This camera includes an EBT screening mode.

    While unable to detect a virus or infection, thermal imaging cameras can be used to detect Elevated Body Temperature. FLIR thermal cameras have been used in public spaces—such as airports, train terminals, businesses, factories, and concerts—as an effective tool to measure skin surface temperature and identify individuals with Elevated Body Temperature (EBT).

    If the temperature of the skin in key areas (especially the corner of the eye and forehead) is above average temperature, then the individual may be selected for additional screening. Identifying individuals with EBT, who should then be further screened with virus-specific diagnostic tests, can help reduce or dramatically slow the spread of viruses and infections.

    Using thermal cameras, officials can be more discrete, efficient, and effective in identifying individuals that need further screening with virus-specific tests. A variety of institutions, including transportation agencies, businesses, factories, and first responders are using thermal screening as an EBT detection method and as part of employee health and screening (EH&S).

    Airports in particular are actively employing FLIR thermal cameras as part of their screening measures for passengers and flight crews. The screening procedures implemented at airports and in other public places are just the first step when it comes to detecting a possible infection: it’s a quick way to screen for anyone who might be sick, and must always be followed up with further screening before authorities decide to quarantine a person.

    For more information regarding EBT screening, please view this pdf.
