New FLIR Exx Series Infrared Cameras Launched

The New FLIR Exx Series Infrared Cameras: Features, Availability and Pricing.

On the 16th February, FLIR announced a new line of Exx series thermal imaging cameras for building, mechanical and electrical inspections. Dubbed the FLIR E75, E85 and E95, they have a wide range of features and abilities including the new Linux-based operating system, increased resolution (on E75 & E95 models only) and on-screen analysis.

The new infrared cameras take on a slightly different form to the older series, mainly due to the 30% larger and brighter screen and new optics. Previously the older Exx series had a fixed 25° lens, where you would have to remove the surround to fix any additional lenses. You would also need to change the settings in the camera so that it selects the right calibration. The new Exx cameras now feature a removable lens, of which 14°, 24° and 42° lenses are available. Once installed, the cameras now automatically select the correct calibration.

A new feature, which hasn’t been seen on any commercial grade FLIR cameras before, is laser-assisted autofocus, which enables fast, automatic focus that subsequently allows distance and area measurements in the thermal images.

Interestingly, the detector size for the E95 is 464 x 348 (161,472 pixels), the E85 384 x 288 (110,592 pixels) and the E75 320 x 240 (76,800 pixels), which leads us to believe that the physical detector is actually 640 x 480, but is crippled in the firmware – a fairly standard practise for FLIR.

The new thermal imaging cameras now also support full radiometric video recording to SD cards at 30Hz and has an improved sensitivity (NETD) of 0.03°C compared to the 0.07°C to 0.045°C found in the older models.

Exx Series Pricing

We were expecting the new series to be pricy, however FLIR have been incredibly competitive with their pricing for both the camera and lenses.

E75 – £5600

E85 – £6800

E95 – £8000

Lenses (14°, 24° or 42°) – £1200.

Please note these are EX VAT and rounded prices.

Exx Series Availability

The new FLIR cameras will be available from 1st March 2017 and available with additional lenses from 1st April 2017. The cameras will be available to order from the iRed Shop shortly.
