FLIR Systems announces the FLIR K1 handheld thermal imaging camera for first responder officers and fire investigators. The FLIR K1 detects heat and provides visibility through smoke and in total darkness to enhance situational awareness for use in wildland fire control, search and rescue missions, structure damage evaluation, and investigative work.
The dual-sensor FLIR K1 is powered by the FLIR Lepton thermal microcamera, FLIR’s smallest and lowest-cost thermal camera core. The K1 uses FLIR’s patented MSX technology, which extracts high-contrast details from the images taken by an on-board visible light camera and superimposes them onto the thermal images. The FLIR K1 simultaneously captures thermal and visible images of a scene and stores up to 10 000 image sets to create post-scene reports, analysis and evidence.
A pistol grip design allows users to view the scene from their line of sight for improved safety and situational awareness. The spot thermometer easily identifies unseen hot and cold spots for instant troubleshooting. The FLIR K1 carries an IP67 rating for water resistance, heat resistance up to 115°C, and can withstand a 2-metre drop onto concrete. An integrated, rechargeable battery lasts up to five hours on a single charge, and it also includes a 300-lumen flashlight that lends additional visibility of a scene.
