To achieve true high quality images three cornerstones need to be in place; a detector with high resolution and sensitivity and a high quality powerful lens. For the FLIR P-Series the combination of a very powerful lens and high sensitivity detector generates the best image available of all performance cameras.
High Definition Images
|Powerful and interchangeable infrared lensesA large diameter lens means more IR radiation reaches the detector, resulting in high quality IR images. The high precision germanium lenses in the P-Series have integral USM focusing mechanism and are designed to take full advantage of the 640×480 pixel FPA detector. The P-Series features a standard 24º lens and optional 7º, 12º and 45º lenses.|
|640×480 pixel resolutionHigher resolution improves your inspections providing higher accuracy of measured temperatures spotting even small objects from a distance. This is of critical importance to many thermographers who need to minimize risk of missing faults that can develop to catastrophic failures.
With a higher resolution camera you cover a bigger object with only one image. With lower resolution more images are needed to cover the same area with the same level of details in the image.
The thermal sensitivity in the FLIR P-Series ranges from 40 mK (P620) to < 30 mK (P660) depending on model. The higher the sensitivity is the better the camera is to capture the finest image details even at low temperature differences. High detector sensitivity is particularly important for building applications where temperature differences are typically lower.
|High quality visual camera
All P-Series models include an integrated 3.2 Mpixel visual camera, fixed lens, autofocus and lamp for shooting in dark environments.
|Contrast Optimizer (only P660)The Contrast Optimizer is a unique feature that enhances infrared images of objects having a lot of fine details. It optimizes automatically the brightness and contrast adjustment to make it easier to make thermal analyzes of detailed objects. Contrast Optimizer is an advanced military image processing technology for the first time implemented in a commercial infrared camera.|
|Measurement rangeElectrical applications demand a higher measurement range that e.g. building applications. The P-Series measures temperatures from -40ºC to +500 ºC.|
Power / Functionality
|Remote ControlWireless remote control is an optional feature compatible with P660, P640 and P 620. It comforts and safety for hazardous measurements or inspections in remote places. Supports WLAN and MPEG video on remote.|
|Built in GPS
FLIR embedded Geographic Positioning System (GPS) automatically documents satellite coordinates. The system enables technicians to view, analyze and directly localize infrared images from many different locations easily and quickly. It will also guide inspection and field repair teams to the correct location.
|Laser locatorA conveniently located button activates the laser locator that will help you associate the hot or cold spot in the IR image with the real physical target in the field.

|Flexible InterfacesEasy access to composite video connection, USB, FireWIre, and a direct connection to charge the battery inside the camera.|
|MPEG-4 videoCreate visual and infrared non radiometric MPEG-4 video files|
|Thermal FusionFLIR’s Thermal Fusion, merging visual and infrared images, allows for easier identification and interpretation of infrared images. On the FLIR P660 camera, the overlay function operates in real time.
|Picture-in-PictureCreate an infrared overlay on your visual image. Scalable, moveable and resizable. This feature helps to spot and highlight sensitive or dangerous temperature developments and makes report interpretation easy
even for a person unfamiliar with infrared.
|Text and voice annotationsText comments can be uploaded to the camera through a wireless IrDa interface. A headset can be connected to make voice annotations.|
|Thumbnail image galleryAn easy-to-access thumbnail image gallery helps you to quickly review and find your infrared images.|
|Radiometric JPEGFLIR uses a non proprietary radiometric JPEG image format that allows for post processing and report writing with Microsoft Word® based FLIR software. Single image/periodic storage.|
|Intelligent battery systemThe Li-Ion battery of the P-Series gives the user autonomy of over 3 hours IR inspections. The battery can be charged while still in the camera, in a 2-bay charger or in a car.|
|Automatic focus and Manual focus, Digital zoomDual focus possibilities including autofocus.|
Ergonomics / Ease of Use
|Tiltable viewfinderThe high-resolution viewfinder is tiltable and can be adapted to the individual user. It is an absolutely necessary feature for outdoor use as it shows a very sharp image without influence of ambient light and reflections.|
|Large LCD screenSuper size 5.6” foldable high-quality LCD screen allows you to see the smallest details and temperature differences.|
|IP54 standardThe P-Series meets the IP54 standard, is dust-proof and water splash-proof, and is designed to be used in harsh industrial environments and weather conditions.|
|Temperature sound, image alarmsMake surveying easier and faster.|
|Measurement modes• Movable measurement spots
• Automatic hot/cold detection; auto hot or cold spot meter markers within area
• Isotherms; an isotherm replaces certain colors in the scale with a contrasting color, which simplifies detecting a problem. Detect high, low and interval temperatures. An isotherm has a width and a temperature level which can be moved and stretched up and down in the scale.
• ΔT (Delta T) calculation (FLIR T400/B400 only). ΔT means the difference of the results between two measurement tools or one tool and a manually set reference temperature.
• Object parameters; possible to input values for emissivity, reflective apparent temperature, relative humidity, distance and atmospheric temperature.
|Multi-angle handle with integrated direct access buttonsA turnable control grip allows you to use the camera in the most comfortable position. The buttons and joystick to control the camera are integrated in this handle and always stay right underneath your fingertips. Functions like auto focus, freezing and storing of images are just a button away.|
|Programmable direct access buttonsFor increased flexibility the operator can program buttons located on the top of the camera to change color palettes, emissivity settings or temperature ranges, or activate analysis tools such as spots and areas.|
