FLIR C2 Powerful, Compact Thermal Imaging System

The FLIR C2 is the world’s first full-featured, pocket-sized thermal camera designed for building industry experts and contractors. Keep it on you so you’re ready anytime to find hidden heat patterns that signal energy waste, structural defects, plumbing issues and more. The C2’s must-have features include MSX® real time image enhancement, high sensitivity, a wide field of view, and fully radiometric imagery to clearly show where problems are and verify the completion of repairs.

Pocket Portable.

Keep it on you and at your side, ready for immediate use so you don’t miss an opportunity

• Light, slim profile fits comfortably in any work pocket
• Brilliant 3” intuitive touch screen with auto orientation for easy viewing
• Built-in LED spotlight you can use as a flashlight and for photo illumination

Fully Radiometric.

Save thermal image JPEGs instantly, then conveniently adjust and analyze them later with FLIR Tools to isolate temperature measurements on any pixel and create convincing reports

• MSX-enhanced thermal images provide stunning detail to help you identify problem areas easier
• Radiometric image stores 4800 pixels capable of capturing thermal measurements from -10°C to 150°C
• A wide FOV frames what pros need to see and high thermal sensitivity detects subtle temperature differences common in building applications

Easily Affordable.
Sub-$700 MSRP fits everyone’s budget to help put this powerful tool into the hands of more people who can really use it

• FLIR Tools professional reporting software included – the industry standard in thermal image post analysis
• Streaming video via FLIR Tools, a feature not usually available on low-cost thermal camera systems
• FLIR’s unique 2-10 warranty, covering parts and labor for two years and the detector for ten

How It works
Thermal imaging is one of the most powerful technologies ever developed to enhance visual perception. The unaided human eye can only see a very narrow band of visible light along the electromagnetic spectrum, which also includes radio and microwaves, infrared and ultraviolet light, X-Rays, and gamma rays. By detecting small temperature differences in the infrared world, thermal imaging makes otherwise invisible heat energy visible.

Everything around you either emits or reflects heat energy. So when you look around a home with the FLIR C2, its thermal images can show you where doors and windows may not be properly weatherized and are leaking cold or warm air (depending on the season). You may also see a section of an outside wall that appears considerably cooler during winter months, indicating voids where insulation is missing or improperly installed. You might see a dimmer switch or electrical breaker that’s much warmer than it should safely be indicating a pending problem or overloaded circuit. Or you might want to look for the subtle temperature differences in images that reveal potential signs of hidden moisture in walls, floors and ceilings. The list of uses is long and will grow dramatically as customers discover this unseen portion of the electromagnetic spectrum

The FLIR C2 includes FLIR’s revolutionary Lepton micro-thermal camera that can passively scan an area and display images of hot and cold patterns on its LCD screen. Along with the Lepton, C2 also includes a visible light camera for capturing photos of the scene. Using FLIR’s exclusive MSX® technology, C2 embosses the thermal contrast details from the visual camera onto the thermal image without diluting it. The end result is a thermal image that shows identifiable features, numbers, letters and other texture so you know immediately what you’re looking at in a scene.

The ability to “see” heat this way creates an entirely new level of awareness for both professionals and consumers, allowing them to find problems they may have missed before. The benefit is a nondestructive, more efficient, and reliable way to troubleshoot that provides persuasive thermal images to help make the case for repairs and verify that work has been done correctly. This adds high visual impact to a building professional’s reports and marketing materials, and, of course, increases the contractor’s diagnostic credibility, which always makes good business sense.
