FLIR Systems launches TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer

flir has released the TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer, a powerful, affordable, compact tool that lets you see invisible heat patterns, measure temperatures accurately, and conveniently store images and measurement data for reporting.

Built around FLIR’s exclusive Lepton micro thermal imaging camera core, the TG165 eliminates the blind guesswork of troubleshooting by combining a single spot IR thermometer with the power of a thermal camera in a rugged, compact package anyone can use. This combination of technologies speeds troubleshooting, making it easy to find invisible hot and cold spots from a safe distance so you can investigate and solve problems quickly.

Fast and easy to use, the TG165 lets you get right to work with no training required. Its dual lasers visually mark the edges of what is being measured and the cross hairs pinpoint the centre point of the measurement area. The TG165 is designed to withstand a two-metre drop, making it rugged enough for industrial professionals while offering the simplicity valued by do-it-yourself homeowners.

FLIR president and CEO, Andy Teich, said: “The TG165 bridges the gap between current generation IR thermometers that offer no imaging capability, and FLIR’s thermal cameras. By leveraging our new Lepton core’s price, size and low power consumption, the TG165 transforms one of the most commonly used measurement tools into a discovery device that gives facility maintenance workers, contractors, electricians, HVAC techs, and homeowners greater capability to solve heating and electrical issues quickly and safely.”

The TG165 is priced at £399, excl VAT, and will be available at popular industrial test equipment retailers in markets around the world starting in early October. For more information, please visit www.flir.com/tg165
