Utility equipment: FLIR Systems Inc. has announced its TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer, a powerful, affordable, compact tool that lets you see invisible heat patterns, measure temperatures accurately, and conveniently store images and measurement data for reporting.
Built around FLIR’s exclusive Lepton® micro thermal imaging camera core, the TG165 eliminates the blind guesswork of troubleshooting by combining a single spot IR thermometer with the power of a thermal camera in a rugged, compact package anyone can use. This unique combination of technologies speeds troubleshooting, making it easy to find invisible hot and cold spots from a safe distance so you can investigate and solve problems quickly.
Fast and easy to use, the TG165 lets you get right to work with no training required. Its dual lasers visually mark the edges of what is being measured and the cross hairs pinpoint the center point of the measurement area. The TG165 is designed to withstand a two-meter drop, making it rugged enough for industrial professionals while offering the simplicity valued by do-it-yourself homeowners.
“The TG165 bridges the gap between current generation IR thermometers that offer no imaging capability, and FLIR's market-leading thermal cameras,” said FLIR President and CEO, Andy Teich. “By leveraging our new Lepton core’s revolutionary price, size, and low power consumption, the TG165 transforms one of the most commonly used measurement tools into a discovery device that gives facility maintenance workers, contractors, electricians, HVAC techs, and homeowners greater capability to solve heating and electrical issues quickly and safely.”
