The FLIR TG165 is suitable as an ebola thermal scanner to screen passengers arriving on international flights without the need to make direct contact.
Always been interested in thermography but been put off by the high prices? With the FLIR TG165, getting into thermography has never been so affordable!
Although not technically a thermal camera, the TG165 uses the combined technology of an infrared (IR) thermometer and FLIR's entry-level thermal cameras to create a product that has the benefits of both. The Imaging IR Thermometer measures surface temperature just like a normal IR thermometer, but it also includes a built-in thermal detector that allows it to capture thermal images complete with temperature data.
Up to 75000 individual thermal images can be captured on the camera and stored on the included 8GB SD card. The TG165 is also one of the first FLIR instruments to benefit from Lepton core technology, a new thermal detector that's smaller, more cost-effective and helps to reduce the cost of instruments while making them smaller, easier to use and more detailed than ever before.
The thermometer is also designed in a similar fashion to FLIR's thermal cameras; it includes an LCD screen for viewing back images, includes a trigger for capturing and is pistol-shaped for comfortable, ergonomic grip. Dual-laser pointers are built into the tester for precise lining up of measurements and it also includes a tripod-mount for extra stability when you're capturing data.
This instrument is perfectly suited to any application and is easy to use, even if you've never had any specialist training. Whether you're checking electrical components for hotspots, examining the temperature of pipes or looking for insulation problems in a building, this Imaging IR Thermometer is the tool to get you started with basic thermographic checks.

The FLIR TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer image resolution is 80 x 60 pixels. Every additional pixel means more valuable temperature information to isolate problem areas
See exactly where you are taking your temperature reading from with a laser pointer.
The FLIR TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer has a thermal sensitivity of 30mK NETD. A lower mK value means a more accurate thermal camera.
The FLIR TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer can detect between -/+ 1% of the actual temperature.
