FLIR TG165-X thermal camera with added MSX image enhancement
By Anthony Capkun
July 23, 2020 – FLIR Systems’ TG165-X MSX thermal camera is purpose-built for electrical contractors, machine technicians, facilities maintenance engineers, home inspectors, and HVAC professionals.
This upgrade to the TG165 provides an all-in-one diagnostics tool with a spot temperature gun and thermal imager, enhanced by FLIR’s patented Multi-spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX), which offers improved identification of hot spots that indicate electrical or mechanical failures.
Built around a true thermal 80×60 camera sensor with 4800 pixels, FLIR MSX’s two-camera technology makes images easier to understand by adding visual details to full thermal images and making them sharper to recognize physical features. A new laser-projected bullseye target aids in pinpointing areas of concern, while the bright 2.4-in. LCD colour display and 51° × 66° field-of-view provide a comprehensive view of the area of interest.
The TG165-X includes an IP54 enclosure for protection against dust and water and a drop-rating of 2 m, and can store up to 50,000 images and data to an embedded 4 GB flash memory.
