    FLIR E86-EST Advanced Thermal Camera

    The FLIR E86-EST Advanced Thermal Camera is a non-contact, handheld screening device built with an impressive on-camera FLIR Screen-EST Mode to be the initial line of defence against possible health risks. With a 464 x 348 IR pixel resolution, the E86-EST can determine the presence of an elevated skin temperature through accurate detection and rapid visualisation. These easy-to-understand measurements are captured with a thermal sensitivity of <40 mK or <30 mK at 30°C depending on lens and within a range of 15°C to 45°C. With the choice of either a 24˚ or 42˚ lens, the E86-EST's field of view (FOV) can be either 24° × 18° or 42° × 32°.

    FLIR Screen-EST Mode

    Featured with the FLIR E86-EST, this mode is a system designed to simplify elevated skin temperature readings and alleviate the burden on screening station operators. All temperatures are first compared against a sampled average value, should the result be higher than a user defined threshold an audible alarm will sound. This average value can be edited either automatically with each new screening in Auto mode, or via a Bluetooth connected remote control in 'Button Mode'.

    Intuitive and user-friendly, the FLIR Screen-EST Mode within the E86-EST provides useful positioning guides for targets and a simple pass/fail graphic for users. Privacy is a priority with the FLIR Screen-EST Mode as thermal images do not display identify facial features, nor does the mode store any images or sensitive personal data. Requiring zero personal contact to take a reading, all thermal temperature measurements are completely in line with social distancing protocols. If an individual tests above the designated threshold, they should then be evaluated using a medical device such as a thermometer.

    Accurate Screening & Easy Set-Up

    With a drift feature compensating for differences in ambient temperatures, the FLIR E54-EST ensures accuracy by automatically taking regular temperature readings. Complete with a continuous laser distance meter for focus, four image modes and a choice of 6 colour palettes the E86-EST also uses Patented FLIR MSX technology. Alongside smart analytics, high performance hardware and reliable calibration options for optimising the screening process this thermal camera is fully compatible with FLIR Screen-EST Desktop software.

    Commence screening swiftly with the FLIR E86-EST camera due to its exceptionally limited ramp-up time and easy video connectivity. Featuring an integrated tripod mount, bright touchscreen display and 1-4x digital zoom this instrument can be powered by both batteries or an external power source. The FLIR E86-EST battery life last for 2.5 hours and has the added benefit of being cable free. However, the external power option makes this camera an ideal option for establishing a permanent screening station. Other features include a removable 8GB SD card and a 2 meter drop tested, IP54 rated protective outer casing.
