FLIR Systems is pleased to be delivering its 100,000th commercial-use infrared camera; this one purchased by Bob Childs, a home inspector in Arizona. To commemorate the milestone, Childs and Professional Equipment (his distributor) will be honoured at an awards ceremony and press conference today.

“This remarkable achievement is a reflection of FLIR’s
success in its efforts to make infrared technology increasingly
available and affordable," said
FLIR’s Tom Scanlon, vice president for Americas–Thermography. "While FLIR’s earliest thermal imagers cost
$50,000, today’s professionals can access FLIR technology for a
fraction of that, with cameras now starting at under $2000."

In addition to serving as a key tool in home inspection and building
diagnostics, FLIR’s commercial IR cameras are used by in industrial
plant maintenance, electrical and HVAC diagnostics applications.
Congratulations FLIR!
