Having the ability to effectively inspect, diagnose, and document trouble spots is crucial for property managers, facilities maintenance staff, building inspectors, contractors, electricians, service technicians, plumbers, and even homeowners. It requires the aid of effective tools, including thermal imaging, to quickly recognize and resolve those trouble spots. That’s why FLIR has introduced its latest entry-level Cx-Series camera, the FLIR C3-X™, a compact thermal camera packed with features that can help users confidently find faults at close range. Tough enough for any job, it easily fits in a pocket or tool bag and is available at a price point that building professionals and homeowners can afford.
Along with the five-megapixel visual inspection camera, the enhanced C3-X has a 128×96 resolution thermal camera that features a temperature range up to 300 degrees Celsius on an easy-to-read 3.5-inch touchscreen. These features are important to get a detailed view of the situation and troubleshoot areas of concern such as hot fuses or air leaks. FLIR Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX®) mode adds visible light details to thermal images in real time for greater clarity, so users can easily identify issues within the context of the problem area.
The C3-X stands up in tough environments with four hours of operating time and features an IP54 enclosure, providing a high level of protection against dust and water, and is designed to withstand a 2 m (6.6 ft) drop. It’s compact, handheld design, allows professionals to fit it in their pocket or into their tool bag without taking up too much space. The built in LED light helps see in dark areas such as crawl spaces.
Featuring FLIR Ignite™, the C3-X offers cloud connectivity, allowing professionals to directly transfer, store and backup data so images are always available on all devices. The C3-X also offers seamless customer reporting when paired with FLIR Thermal Studio™.
The FLIR C3-X joins the FLIR C5™ as part of the Cx-Series suite of compact thermal cameras, and is available globally to purchase today through FLIR and authorized FLIR distributors for £499.99, with shipments beginning in the fourth quarter of 2020. For more information visit the FLIR website.
