Thermal Imaging Cameras

Thermal imaging cameras provide a non-destructive method of quickly identifying subsurface defects and areas of deterioration on a wide range of materials. The infrared cameras detect temperature and thermal gradients, allowing defects such as voids, cracks, and delaminations to be found for maintenance and repair assessment. Thermal cameras are particularly useful during asphalt placement by identifying the temperature gradients that help determine rolling patterns. Models are available in varying temperature ranges and resolution to address specific material evaluation requirements.


Thermal image enhancement on FLIR® models adds key details from the visible spectrum camera to the infrared image on the display. The basic model displays live minimum/maximum temperatures.

  • FLIR® C2 Compact Thermal Imaging Camera has a temperature range of 14°—302°F (-10°—150°C). Pixel resolution is 320 x 240. Designed specifically for construction applications. Hidden heat patterns are rapidly detected and displayed on the camera’s 3in (76mm) screen. The included FLIR® Tools software allows easy collection and analysis of data on user’s computer.
  • FLIR® Spot Thermal Camera is an affordable compromise between infrared camera and thermometer. Temperature range is -13° to 716°F (-25° to 380°C). Surface temperatures and images are easily transferred to the user’s computer via a Micro SD card or USB connection. Has a 2in (152mm) display.
  • FLIR® Ex-Series Thermal Imaging Cameras are available in models with a range of pixel resolutions and thermal sensitivity ratings. Instantly detects temperature gradients. Has 3in (76mm) LCD display screen and temperature range of -4° to 482°F (-20° to 250°C). Includes Wi-Fi connectivity for tablets and smart phones.
  • Basic Thermal Imaging Camera has a 3.5in (89mm) transistor display and -20° to 300°C (-4° to 572°F) temperature range. 8Gb memory allows storage of images for later transfer via USB to user’s computer for analysis.
