FLIR’S HOT NEW THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS FOR FIREFIGHTING

FLIR Systems has added the new FLIR K2 and FLIR K65 to its industry-leading lineup of K-Series thermal imaging cameras (TICs).
The new cameras provide firefighters with the capability to see through smoke, locate and rescue victims, identify hot spots, navigate safely, and stay better oriented during response missions.
The FLIR K65 has been fully certified to the National Fire Protection Association’s NFPA 1801-2013 standard for usability, image quality, and durability for firefighting thermal imagers.
The K65 offers superior 320 x 240 thermal resolution and features FLIR’s revolutionary Flexible Scene Enhancement™ (FSX) technology for ultra-crisp thermal imagery and visibility in total darkness and smoke-filled rooms.
FSX heightens thermal image detail through real-time, onboard digital processing, producing an image that shows extraordinary structural, edge, and other instantly-recognizable features. The K65 also includes onboard video recording and playback, which is useful for debriefing and training.
The FLIR K2 brings FLIR’s powerful life-saving thermal technology to a broader base of firefighters at a breakthrough price point.
Powered by FLIR’s revolutionary Lepton® camera core, the compact K2 delivers detailed thermal images at 160 x 120 resolution and is equipped with FLIR’s patented Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX®) technology that significantly enhances image quality, allowing firefighters to see key structural details in a variety of environments.
“FLIR is proud to announce that the K65 is fully compliant with NFPA standards, which shows our strong commitment to delivering on the most important needs of the firefighting industry,” said FLIR Vice President and General Manager of Instruments, Rickard Lindvall. “The FLIR K2 is yet another example of how our Lepton core allows us to make thermal imaging products more accessible.”
The addition of the new K2 and K65 follows the launch of the K55 and K45 earlier this year and illustrates FLIR’s total commitment to the firefighting market.
Both were showcased at the recent 2015 Interschutz exhibition in Hannover, Germany.
The K2 will be available for purchase in late September 2015. The K65 will be available to order from June 29 through established distribution networks.
Along with releasing the two new cameras, FLIR is announcing an industry-leading warranty on K2, K45, K55, and K65 models when registered within 60 days of purchase.
The new warranty covers the full camera for five years, the detector for ten years, and batteries for two years. Visit www.flir.com.au/fire for more information.
