Boston, MA 09/30/2014 (wallstreetpr) – FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLIR) introduced a new low-cost thermal imaging tool, the TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer that enables the measurement of invisible heat patterns and temperature.
The global leader and provider of advanced thermal imaging solutions yesterday announced the launch of its TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer.

The company says that the system allows the users to focus directly on the work with its intuitive point and shoot capability. The thermometer is fitted with dual rotating lasers that visually indicate the location and size of the object being measured. In addition, its on-screen crosshair helps mark the region on the thermal picture with extreme precision and accuracy. The TG165 is specially built for industrial professionals, such as electricians, contractors, maintenance workers, and even homeowners. To cater to industry needs, it is capable of withstanding a two-meter fall.
