FLIR E6 Infrared Camera with MSX Technology

The FLIR E6 features an IR Pixel Resolution of 160x120, Thermal Sensitivity Range <0.06°C, and a 4 hour interchangeable battery.

The new FLIR E-Series cameras are handy for quick equipment scans and safety checks. These easy to use Thermal Imagers offer everything you need for on-the-spot thermal inspections. These invaluable tools can help you clearly see and find hidden electrical and mechanical overheating in time to stop problems from turning into serious, expensive trouble.

FLIR's EX Series Infrared Thermal Imaging Cameras - Screen View


Now Featuring MSX Technology

FLIR MSX Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging extracts the high-contrast highlights from the built-in visible camera's image and then virtually superimposes the enhanced details onto the entire corresponding FLIR infrared image. This enhances the clarity of the thermal image making it easier to recognize key elements of the image and identify problem areas. Simply put MSX makes it easier to find, recognize, and identify issues.



FLIR E6 Electrical Mechanical Resolution

FLIR E6 Mechanical Applications:

  • Electrical - Find hidden problems quickly, make timely repairs, prevent unscheduled shutdowns, and improve plant safety.
  • Mechanical - Discover overheated bearings, linkages, and other components before they can interrupt your operations or create safety hazards.
  • Utility - Scan large areas and hundreds of connections quickly and efficiently to prevent unexpected service outages and lost revenues.
  • Roofing - Find compromised roofing areas at your facility, and repair it before problems quickly become a safety hazard or require replacing the entire structure.
  • Building Diagnostics - Even small areas of moisture intrusion can be easy to spot with an infrared camera. Locate and repair hidden water damage before a trickle turns into a flood.
  • Energy Loss - Discover missing insulation, faulty HVAC systems, and other issues that waste energy and lots of money.
FLIR E6 Building Inspection Resolution

FLIR E6 Building Inspection Applications:

  • Missing Insulation - Locate poor insulation quickly by detecting and comparing differences with surrounding areas.
  • Water Damage - Find and fi x hidden water damage quickly before small problems become big, expensive ones, and document proof of your repairs.
  • Air Leaks - Detect air leaks around windows, doors, and other structures. Repairing them saves energy and money.
  • Electrical Problems - Finding hidden electrical problems is easy with FLIR, allowing you to take quick action to solve them.
  • HVAC Problems - Discover leaking ductwork and troubleshoot heating, AC, and radiant fl ooring problems to maximize energy efficiency.
  • Mold and Rot - See temperature differences to expose hidden leaks that can lead to expensive and extensive health issues and structural damage.
  • Destructive Pests - Hunt down burrowing and nesting insects and rodents before they eat customers out of house and home.



Multiple Imaging Modes

All Ex-Series cameras let you view thermal, visual, and MSX images and store them simultaneously for further analysis using FLIR Tools software. The E6 and E8 also offer Picture-in-Picture that inserts the thermal image over the visible photo as an extra documentation option.

FLIR® E4: 80 × 60 Resolution

FLIR E4 Electrical Mechanical Resolution
FLIR E4 Building Inspection Resolution

FLIR E5 Electrical Mechanical Resolution
FLIR E5 Building Inspection Resolution

If you need more resolution, E5 offers more than twice as many infrared detector pixels (10,800) as E4 for improved thermal image clarity. Plus E5 provides increased sensitivity to help bring out slightly finer temperature differences. E5 also offers an area box measurement tool with max/min temperature markers in addition to the center spot.


FLIR E6 Electrical Mechanical Resolution
FLIR E6 Building Inspection Resolution

If you need even higher resolution and more measurement modes, E6 provides 19,200 pixels plus increased sensitivity at <0.06°C. In addition to the automatic hot/cold markers of E5, E6 also offers P-i-P and isotherm color alarms in the form of blue highlighted areas for those below a set temperature and red when above.


FLIR E8 Electrical Mechanical Resolution
FLIR E8 Building Inspection Resolution

The E8 provides a major jump in thermal imaging resolution with 76,800 pixels - 4 times as many as the E6. The E8's 320 × 240 detector gives you excellent thermal image clarity and puts more temperature measurement spots on the object you're targeting, allowing you to either inspect ever smaller components from the same distance or the same target from farther away, to help facilitate greater safety benefits and convenience.

FLIR E6 Key Features:

  • MSX - Recognize problem locations instantly when you see thermal images enhanced with visible camera details such as numbers, signage, labels, and other identifiable features.
  • IR Resolutions to Fit Your Application - 19,200 Pixel 160x120 Resolution with the FLIR E6
  • Reliable Results - FLIR’s outstanding thermal accuracy (within 2% or +/-2°C) and broad measurement range (-4°F to 482°F) for results you can count on.
  • Fully Radiometric Images - Stores hundreds of thermal, MSX and visible image JPEGs with all temperature data intact ready to download to your Mac or PC.
  • Compact Design - Light at about 20 ounces (575g) for easy one-handed operation yet tough enough to stow with the rest of your tools.
  • 3 Thermal Color Palettes: Iron, Rainbow, and Gray
  • 45° x 34° Field of View
  • 9Hz Frame Rate
  • 640x480 built in digital camera
  • Focus-free IR and Visible Camera for Point-and-Shoot Simplicity
  • Protective Lens Cover Slides Open Easily
  • Trigger Captures Radiometric JPEG Images
  • Ruggedness You Can Trust Withstands 2 Meter Drop
  • Excellent 3" Color LCD Shows the Whole MSX Scene
  • Quick Button Access to Measurement, Parameter, and Imaging Tools
  • Quick-release Re-chargeable Battery
  • Reporting Software Included
  • USB Output for Fast Image Downloads
