May 25, 2018 — FLIR Systems Inc. recently announced that the FLIR T500-Series has been selected as a “Red Dot: Best of the Best” winner for 2018.

The “Red Dot: Best of the Best” is awarded for groundbreaking product design and is given as the top prize for the best products in their category, the company says.

The T500-Series is the second FLIR product to win the award in consecutive years (the FLIR Exx-Series won last year).

The FLIR T500-Series incorporates ergonomics into a ruggedized, high-performance thermal imager. Featuring a lightweight magnesium interior and 180° optical block rotation, the series also uses a shatterproof Dragontrail touchscreen.

The series also includes laser-assisted autofocus for accurate readings and FLIR Vision Processing, which combines IR resolution, MSX and UltraMax image to create a detailed thermal image.
