Flir TG165-X Thermal Imager with MSX Technology

The FLIR TG165-X helps you visualize the hot and cold spots that can indicate electrical faults, mechanical break-downs, or air and water leaks. This all-in-one, non-contact measurement and imaging tool displays temperature anomalies on screen, allowing you to inspect efficiently and pinpoint the source of problems faster than with a single-spot IR thermometer.

See components clearly and even read labels thanks to FLIR patented MSX image enhancement, which adds visual details to full thermal images. The bullseye laser ensures you’re always targeting the right component for measurement while easy-to-use buttons and settings help you complete the job quickly and stress-free. With internal storage for up to 50,000 images and a rechargeable Li-ion battery, the FLIR TG165-X is ready to go right out of the box.

Troubleshoot electrical, mechanical, and building issues with this handheld thermal imager

  • See temperature anomalies immediately in the thermal image instead of searching for them with a single-spot IR thermometer
  • Speed inspections with a thermal view that tells you instantly whether a target has overheating components or hidden air leaks
  • Measure a wide range of temperatures, from -25°C to 300°C (-13°F to 572°F), with an accuracy of up to ±1.5°C (±3°F)

See the detail needed to troubleshoot faults and gauge their severity

  • Interpret images faster and easier with MSX® two-camera technology, which enhances thermal images with crisp visual details
  • Identify the exact area that you’re measuring using the bullseye laser pointer
  • Capture thermal MSX or visual images plus temperature readings with a simple trigger-pull
  • Demonstrate the problem was found and corrected with recorded before-and-after images

Take the TG165-X anywhere thanks to its portable design and protective IP54 enclosure

  • Work safely and worry-free knowing that the thermal imager can withstand a 2-meter drop
  • See into dark or hard-to-reach areas with the bright LED worklight
  • Easily view live thermal or recorded images on 2.4-in. display
  • Rely on the security of the world-class FLIR 2-10 warranty

Delivery Notices (Updated March 29th 2021)

During the current situation surrounding the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, logistics from every company are under immense pressure to deliver goods on time.
Coupled with manufacturers on reduced output due to more stringent working practices and a global shortage of component parts to supply UK manufacturing, we have taken the decision to 
temporarily limit our services rather than let our customers down amid these unprecedented circumstances.
We hope you will understand our position on this and we apologize unreservedly for the inconvenience we know it will cause.

Please note that ALL orders placed before 3:00pm are shipped same-day (subject to stock and any additional services required).
The stated transport times above have some scope for adjustment built-in for the Covid-19 situation. Carriers themselves also have their own extended workload and limitations at this time which are unfortunately beyond our control.

Orders requiring calibration 

Whilst we take the greatest care to get all orders dispatched and delivered to you in the stated time frame, orders received PM and requiring
calibration may on occasion miss dispatch that day, according to the complexity of the calibration. Be assured they will ship on the next dispatch
this in most cases should not add more than 24 hours to your delivery.

Bank/Public Holidays

Predicted delivery times are based on regular trading days Monday to Friday. Public holidays, bank holidays and weekends are outside the usual scope
of our dispatch and subject to activities/holidays of our carriers and therefore may incur additional days lead time to your order.
