FLIR TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer Details

FLIR's TG165 is suitable for use as an Ebola thermal scanner to prevent the distribution of the Ebola virus. The IR thermometer can be used without direct contact, preventing the spread of the disease and easily flags up a rise in temperature within passengers in airports and patients within treatment centres.

What would you get if you combined together the basic functionality of a thermal camera with the capabilities of an infrared (IR) thermometer? The answer? The FLIR TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer!

A pistol-shaped, ergonomically-designed instrument, the TG165 includes laser pointers for accurately measuring surface temperature, but also comes with the ability to directly capture thermographic images with resolution of 80 x 60 pixels, making it easier to spot how temperature is distributed over an area. This way, users can accurately track heat patterns while simultaneously measuring temperature levels with a high degree of accuracy.

Requiring no special training to use and extremely low cost, the TG165 gives users the basic tools they need to get started in thermography. Although technically not a thermal camera, the resolution and built-in detector of this instrument still allow it to capture quality thermal images, making it perfect for quick checks of electrical component overheating, pipe temperature problems and other thermal applications. If you've been put off by the high entry-level prices of thermography before, this tool is the ideal way to get started.

The Imaging IR Thermometer is capable of measuring temperature levels from -25 to 380°C (14 to 716°F), has high basic accuracy ±1.5% or ±1.5°C, thermal sensitivity of <150mK, an emissivity adjustment function, 2" full colour TFT screen and even comes with a tripod mount for hands-free capturing. The thermometer is also fully rechargeable and ships as standard with an SD card that can store up to 75000 images alongside temperature data.
