Heading: Essential IR reading from FLIR before you buy

Copy: FLIR, the company which invented infrared camera technology in the

1960s, has released an easy to read 24-page guide entitled ‘12 things to

know before buying an IR camera.’


Available free on request at www. - the company encourages

potential IR users to do some basic research which it says ‘ could save you a

lot of money and work in the long run.’

The booklet, written in common-use language and (mostly) free from jargon,

takes readers through basic IR questions such as:

• ensure the camera you buy can produce accurate, repeatable results (to

within 2% accuracy)

• make sure the camera you buy has a battery you can change yourself and

that it comes with a spare and a charger

• buy a camera that outputs standard jpeg format

• buy a camera with high definition resolution and image quality

Through this process, the guide helps the reader contemplate what features

they might need, what are the basic IR camera functions and why thermal

sensitivity is important.

As the world leaders in IR cameras, FLIR says in summary: “We know that as

more and more manufacturers enter the market, the choice of what to buy can

become harder, if not more confusing, to make. 

“Like most things in life, the best decision is made when you’ve done your 

homework.  This booklet gives you some straightforward ways to think 

about the field of infrared, how it relates to our everyday lives and what 

we do – but more to the point, please always ask for a demonstration of how

the camera can work in your situation.”
