FLIR?.....any users out there?

Question

kerching

Looking at maybe getting a Thermal Maging camera

Is the FLIR TG165-X MSX Thermal Camera any good or is it just a toy.?

likewise the Megger TC3231 Thermal Camera

 

anybody got any experience of them?......probably the cheapest in their respective ranges. Just thought it could be handy for EICRs

got an older TG165. resolutions isnt great compared to some more expensive models but it will show hot spots etc, found many issues on EICRs etc that would otherwise not have been spotted until they failed

Nephew has a FLIR C2 (he's a self employed server engineer). He likes it.

 

Certainly showed the battens in my bathroom where the Celotex is between them... 😂

Not looking for anything EarthnShattering, just thought it could be a good 'add on' to,EICRs

depending on the range it may be good for nocturnal rodent control

I have had a Flir C2 for about 3 - 4 years now that does everything I need but I think Flir have discontinued it now although there are newer models

The thermal imaging kit even at the entry level certainly adds a new dimension to fault finding and any reports that are needed

That’s all well and good as long as you remember to use the right gun for the right job - 
Don’t go taking the .22 to an EICR

I've got the  Flir TG267 - a really nice bit of kit that can still (sort-of ) pay for itself .   

Much higher resolution (160x120 thermal) than the cheaper ones (e.g  the TG165 is 60x60 on thermal)  and apart from bad connections it's very good at finding heating pipes etc before the drill / multi-tool  does
