Infrared thermography is based on analysis of skin surface temperatures as a reflection of normal or abnormal human physiology using a high performance infrared camera.



In oil/gas production, power generation or distribution there is a need to prevent and detect fires fast and automatically. A fix mounted infrared camera can be installed discretely and almost anywhere to monitor your business.



FLIR infrared cameras are being used in university laboratories where high-end academic and applied research is on-going in a wide range of disciplines.




An animal's body creates heat that fluctuates throughout the body depending on blood flow. The body's recognition of injury and a subsequent increase in blood flow can happen even before the animal shows signs of pain, and other conditions.



For the automotive industry the ability to continuously and automatically ensure quality is of great importance. A fix mounted infrared camera can be installed almost anywhere to monitor your production process.



IR cameras made by FLIR have become indispensible tools for many engineering disciplines, particularly in advanced product development.
