FLIR E53 Thermal Imaging Camera

The Flir E53 – Designed with You in mind

The FLIR E53 Advanced Thermal Imaging Camera is the simplest model in FLIR’s EXX-series of Advanced Thermal Imaging Cameras. It has an infrared resolution of 240 x 180 pixels and a temperature range of -20°C to +650°C. Further to this, its 24° lens ensures that this thermal camera is able to detect temperature differences as slight as 0.04°C.

The vibrant 4” touch screen of the FLIR E53 has a range of six colour palettes and a 160˚ viewing angle so it is ideal for awkward inspections. The user can view thermal and visual images on screen thanks to an integrated 5MP digital camera that enables improved MSX image enhancement where visual details are combined with the thermal image. Bluetooth communication allows the camera to work with appropriate measuring instruments to combine thermal images with quantitative data.

Other display options include picture-in-picture, hot/cold spots, centre spots and on-screen laser distance measurement. The user can set a range of colour Isotherm alarms for various temperature limits as well as moisture and insulation. The FLIR E53’s intuitive menu system means it is easy to operate in order to make the most of the impressive thermal capabilities.

Images and radiometric video can be saved to the supplied 8GB memory card. Files can then be downloaded by removing the SD card, using a USB cable, or communicating wirelessly over Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi connectivity also allows the user to stream live radiometric video. Once files are downloaded to a PC, they can be further enhanced using FLIR UltraMax software.

Adding to this product’s convenience is its rugged, pistol-grip design and its ability to be used with other products. It can be connected to mobile devices using Wi-Fi and may also be connected to FLIR clamps and multimeters via METERLiNK®, allowing users, or teams of users, to conduct inspections with greater efficiency.

The FLIR E53 Advanced Thermal Imaging Camera is ideal for predictive maintenance applications. It is able to locate electrical and/or mechanical faults by identifying differences in temperature. In this way, it can help to prevent/ limit detrimental impacts on production and, more seriously, prevent the outbreaks of fires or explosions.

The new Exx-Series cameras produce standard radiometric JPEGs that can be opened and viewed without proprietary software. Image files produced by ExxSeries cameras are supported by FLIR’s Software Development Kit (ATLAS SDK), so companies can use their own software and still support read-out of thermal measurements, METERLiNK® data, and other important parameters embedded within the image.
