Wilsonville, OR – Test products: FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announces the release of the new FLIR E-Series line of thermal cameras, which offer a unique level of performance and affordability. Compact, rugged and user-friendly, the new E4, E5, E6 and E8 cameras are aimed at professionals who need to track down electrical and mechanical overheating, moisture ingress, missing insulation, air leaks, and a host of other issues that thermal images can detect and quantify.

The new E-Series thermal cameras feature a vivid 3" color LCD display, wide-angle focus-free lens, intuitive on-camera button controls, on-board digital camera, and FLIR’s exclusive MSX® technology (Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging), which integrates visible details from digital camera photos onto IR images. Along with delivering a much clearer thermal picture overall, MSX makes it much easier to recognize the location of heat issues without obscuring or compromising the integrity of the original thermal scene – a common problem with older image blending modes.

Up until this product release, MSX was limited to FLIR’s high-performance T-Series thermal imagers. With the new E-Series E4 model, however, it’s now available for as low as $995 USD – an astounding thermal imaging price-to-performance breakthrough.

MSX is ideal for creating an all-in-one thermal image that clearly illustrates an emerging or existing issue, and the bundled FLIR Tools software makes it simple to import, analyze, and incorporate images into easy-to-understand reports to help provide convincing evidence for repairs.
