THERMAL IMAGE CAMERAS

We offer what is probably the most efficent, and simplest to use: Thermal Imaging Camera on the market, and most definetly the best value.

FLIR K-Series; Thermal imaging cameras for fire fighting applications

In the heat of the battle, a thermal imaging camera is indispensable – a vital tool that helps you quickly visualize your plan of attack, locate hot spots, and save lives. Ideally, every engine and truck company should have at least one high-performance TIC on hand. Since FLIR K-Series arrived on the scene, now that’s more feasible.

Affordable K-Series TICs offer new, easier ways to see more clearly in the darkest, smokiest environments by showing big, bright FLIR images to help you maneuver more strategically, stay better oriented, and find victims faster. With greater situational awareness, you’ll improve safety and the likelihood of successful outcomes.

FLIR K-Series Thermal Imaging Camera Features

Clear and Crisp Thermal Images
The maintenance free uncooled microbolometer sensor produces detail-rich images at 240 x 180 pixels (FLIR K40) or 320 x 240 pixels (FLIR K50 & K55). Thermal images are displayed on a large bright 4” LCD, helping you navigate easier and make more efficient and more accurate decisions.

FSX™ Flexible Scene Enhancement (FLIR K55 only) NEW!
FSX enhances K55 thermal images through real-time digital processing inside the camera. The result is an ultra-sharp image that shows extraordinary structural, edge, and other instantly-recognizable detail. This helps make it much easier for firefighters and rescue teams to find their way through the smokiest, darkest environments, and to instantly identify targets in scenes with extreme temperature dynamics.

In-Camera Video Storage (FLIR K55 only) NEW!
Not only can the new FLIR K55 save hundreds of still images just like the K40 and K50, it can record and store up to 600 minutes of video, in clips of 5 minutes (maximum) each. K55 videos can be useful for later analysis and are ideal for training purposes. Playback videos directly from the in-camera archive or download them to your computer via USB.

Extremely Affordable: A Thermal Imaging Camera in Every Fire Truck
FLIR develops and manufactures more thermal imaging cameras than any other company. Thanks to economies of scale, FLIR is able to offer K-Series at an extremely affordable price.

Rugged & Reliable
The K-series is designed to meet tough operating conditions. It withstands a drop from 2 meters onto a concrete floor, is water resistant (IP67) and fully operating up to +260°C/+500°F for 5 minutes.

Easy-to-Use, Even with Gloves On
An intuitive and simple user interface allows you to focus on the job at hand. The FLIR K-Series can be controlled by 3 large buttons on top of the unit -- ideal for a gloved firefighter’s hand.

Produce Simple Reports
Thermal images can be stored in the FLIR K-Series onboard archive and later be used to produce simple reports of what happened at the scene.
