A professional thermal camera for use by firefighters, FLIR's K45 will allow you to react faster, spot the hottest part of a scene in seconds, detect the body heat of trapped people and can even be used as a navigation aid through thick, cloying smoke.

FLIR's K45 produces crisp and clear thermal images with resolution of 240 x 180 pixels. These are shown in real time on a large size, high brightness 4 inch LCD display and imagery can be controlled using the three large size buttons for zoom, mode select and power (can be easily pressed even when wearing thick gloves). With a click of the trigger, you can also store a thermal image on the camera's memory, then download it later at  PC to produce reports on what happened at the scene.

This thermal camera also includes FLIR's unique FSX (Flexible Scene Enhancement) mode. This uniquely-designed technology vastly enhances the level of detail in captured thermal imagery, making every image ultra-sharp with added levels of detail. In real firefighting applications, FLIR FSX helps firefighters to see more clearly through an environment, helps to identify potential hazards and makes it easier to assess structural damage.

This image shows the difference that FLIR FSX makes.

Thanks to FLIR's innovations, the FLIR K45's price point makes it affordable enough for firefighters to have at least one of these units in any truck. You can even charge it up on-route thanks to an optional in-truck charging station (sold separately).
