FLIR K2 Firefighting Thermal Camera
FLIR is on a mission to make high quality thermal imaging cameras standard issue equipment for every member of a fire crew. The FLIR K2 makes that possible by providing capability, ruggedness, and reliability at an affordable price. With features such as Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX®), easy-to-use buttons, and operability in temperatures up to 500°C, the K2 is a small investment that pays big dividends–saving lives, protecting property, and ensuring firefighter safety.
Pistol-shaped for comfortable, quick use when out in the field, the FLIR K2 is ideal for spotting fire distribution, heat given off by those trapped in a fire (it can even see through smoke) and other applications such as helping firefighting professionals see where they're going in dangerous conditions.
The K2 is specifically designed for ease of use. It has a single button which can be easily operated by firefighters even when wearing heavy protective gloves. When in sleep mode, the camera is ready to use within ten seconds, allowing you to work faster in environments that demand quick response.
This thermal camera comes with FLIR's MSX mode. This unique mode, exclusive to FLIR, uses the combined powers of the thermal lens and built-in digital camera to create thermal images with extra levels of detail. In practice, this makes it significantly easier to make out details of objects, people and other hazards in your working environment.
Worried about the camera getting damaged? No problem - the K2 is built tough with 2-meter drop proofing onto a concrete surface, water resistant to IP67 standards and is fully operational up to +260°C (for up to 3 minutes).

Thermal Imaging In Use:
A typical situation in which a TIC is used may involve a residential or commercial fire, where furnishings, structural materials, electrical appliances, or other materials burn in a flaming or smoldering mode. As these commodities burn, smoke and combustion byproducts such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) will be produced in large quantities. In these conditions fire fighters frequently cannot see through the smoke. Sometimes fire fighters are called to an event in which someone suspects that a fire is starting but cannot pinpoint the fire source. In this case there may not be a large amount of smoke, but without a TIC the fire fighter may need to create many holes in walls and ceilings in order to find the problem.
The environment encountered by fire fighters varies, depending on the nature of the fire scenario. Decades of fire testing have shown that the gas temperature in a naturally ventilated burning room stratifies, due to buoyancy, into a hot upper layer that contains combustion byproducts and a cooler lower layer comprised mainly of ambient air. The time-varying severity of conditions in the room of fire origin and adjacent or nearby rooms will change depending on the type and amount of materials burning, thermal properties of the room surfaces, the ventilation conditions, the size of the room, and a number of other factors. As any fire fighter will gladly explain, no two fires are exactly the same. For this reason, incorporating the chaotic and dynamic nature of fire conditions into readily controlled, reproducible, and repeatable tests that will be performed by numerous parties is a difficult task.
