Volume production allows for keener pricing for thermal imagers

Once the preserve of the few, thermal imaging is now the technology of many. And the good news is that it has never been more affordable. Technology leader FLIR has actively driven this trend. High demand for its cameras across diverse markets has allowed the cost benefit of volume manufacturing to be passed onto the customer.

The FLIR i5 compact infrared camera is one beneficiary. It now costs £1,595 - nearly a third less than its purchase price when it was introduced in 2008. This camera is said to be extremely easy to use – just point, shoot and detect. It can be used for a broad range of predictive maintenance and building applications enabling problem areas to be clearly seen on a crisp thermal image.

Throughout industry FLIR is known for its expertise in applying infrared technology to predictive maintenance, building inspection, R&D, safety and automation applications. But the scope of its business is far wider than this.

The automotive sector, for example, benefits from FLIR thermal imaging for driver vision enhancement. BMW is just one premium manufacturer that is incorporating FLIR infrared cameras in its cars. FLIR also serves the maritime, security, surveillance and other commercial markets where its technology is making the invisible, visible.

The end result is that FLIR is putting more thermal imaging cameras into the market than any other manufacturer and this puts the company in a unique position to provide its customers with exceptionally good value-for-money products.
