The E5 is part of the FLIR Ex family of thermal cameras. This series consists of the FLIR E4 (the entry level camera), the FLIR E5 (mid-range), FLIR E6 (higher spec) and the FLIR E8 (highest specification model available).

The FLIR EX Series

The FLIR EX series expands upon FLIR’s past thermal cameras and delivers improved units designed to enhance the overall detail in each captured thermal image.

MSX – Enhancing Thermal Images

Whether you’re working in a normal environment or an extremely hot one, the FLIR E5 can work comfortably in practically any environment due to the large measurement range of the camera.

All of the FLIR EX series is capable of measuring temperature up to a high threshold of 250°C and temperature accuracy is constantly maintained thanks to built-in high thermal sensitivity. This sensitivity enables the FLIR E5 to spot even the most minor differences in temperature and when combined with FLIR’s MSX technology this ensures that every captured thermal image is full of highly accurate, highly useful detail.

This detail is achieved by actively blending together a digital image with a thermal image. This way you get the heat measurements of a tradititional thermal image while getting the detail you can see in a standard visual light image. With MSX enabled, a thermal image that just looks like a mass of colours when MSX isn’t enabled turns into a detailed image where specific components, items and devices can be seen, thus making it significantly easier to analyse an image after capturing is done for the day.

MSX can be turned off and on as the user desires. The FLIR E4 also contains an auto-focusing mechanism, ensuring that thermal images can be captured without cumbersome adjustments to manual focus. When this is combined together with MSX the quality of thermal images produced by the E4 compared to standard thermal is clear to see.

Point, Shoot and Capture

While the built-in thumnbail gallery on the camera is ideal for viewing images out in the field, it is also extremely useful to view images in greater detail on a PC.

The FLIR E5 allows the user to download images via a USB connection into FLIR’s included Tools software package. This comprehensive software allows extensive analysis of images to be completed and reports based upon captured images to be generated.

High Thermal Sensitivity

Even the smallest differences in temperature can have an effect on the internal workings of machinery, equipment and other applications. The FLIR E4 can determine differences in temperature as low as 0.15°C, allowing each captured thermal image to be highly accurate.

The other models in the EX series also further upgrade this sensitivity to even higher levels, steadily improving the accuracy as you move up to the FLIR E8.

Images are also captured with 80 x 60 pixel resolution and this combined with MSX and high thermal sensitivity ensures that every image produced using the FLIR E4 is as detailed as possible despite this being the entry-level product in the EX range.
