April 17, 2012 – FLIR Systems unveiled the new T420 and T440 thermal imagers, which include new imaging capabilities to help you find and capture problems more easily and with more vivid thermal images. In addition to thermal resolution at 76,800 pixels (320×240), the T440 features MSX Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging, which adds the detail of real-time visible spectrum images captured by the built-in digital camera to thermal spectrum images, providing sharpness, contrast and clarity, boasts FLIR, “previously unavailable in thermal imaging”. Other imaging capabilities include scalable picture-in-picture and thermal fusion for easier image identification and added context. To drive home findings, thermographers can also add voice and text comments to images or sketch circles and arrows right on the touchscreen (T440). The T-series’ ergonomic rotating optical block swivels vertically up to 120º making it easier to properly aim at targets without compromising your view of the 3.5-in. colour touchscreen.
