FLIR K55 Handheld Thermal Imaging Camera
With a FLIR K55 TIC in hand, you can attack fires more strategically, maneuver through smoke more easily, and save lives. The K55 displays crisp thermal images on a bright LCD, helping you navigate better and expedite critical decisions. The 320 x 240 pixel IR sensor and FSX™ Flexible Scene Enhancement produce detail-rich imagery at a 60 Hz frame rate that keeps up with the action.
• Crisp, Clear Imagery — The maintenance-free sensor produces detail-rich 320 x 240 pixels thermal images to help you navigate easier in smokey conditions.
• In-Camera Video Storage — Store up to 200 photos or video files that can be played-back in-camera or from a computer for later analysis.
• Expanded Warranty — K55 cameras are protected by FLIR’s 2-5-10 Warranty: 2 years for batteries, 5 for the camera, and 10 years for the detector.
