The Flir E53 – Designed with You in mind

Work Safer
Your job can take you up ladders and into crawl-spaces, so you need tools that can be used one-handed and worry-free.
FLIR designed its new E53 camera to be tough enough to use every day, with simplified buttons and intuitive screens that allow you to focus on your work – instead of on the camera controls.

Work Smarter
The new E53 camera produces standard radiometric JPEGs that can be opened and viewed without proprietary software. Image files produced by E53 camera are supported by FLIR’s Software Development Kit (ATLAS SDK), so companies can use their own software and still support read-out of thermal measurements, METERLiNK® data, and other important parameters embedded within the image. Current and voltage measurements embedded in image files are also accessible.
