FLIR Systems Launches Two Handheld Thermal Cameras for Firefighters

WILSONVILLE, OR—FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the addition of the new K33 and K53 to its lineup of K-Series thermal imaging cameras (TICs). The FLIR K33 and K53 provide firefighters with uncompromised resolution in a simple, clean interface at reasonable price points to better see through smoke, identify hot spots, navigate safely, remain oriented during response missions, and locate and rescue victims more easily. 

Designed to operate in tough conditions, the FLIR K33 and K53 firefighting cameras feature FLIR’s Flexible Scene Enhancement™ (FSX) technology for ultra-crisp thermal imagery for visibility in total darkness and smoke-filled rooms. With a simple, single-button interface, both cameras provide one viewing option (TI Basic). The K33 offers 240×180 resolution and the FLIR K53 offers 320 x240 resolution on a bright 4-inch display, while the K53 can internally store 200 images and 600 minutes of video for after-action review and incident reporting.

“With the new FLIR K33 and K53 thermal imaging cameras for firefighters, FLIR has put ease of use first,” says Rickard Lindvall, General Manager of FLIR’s Instruments division. “The launch of the FLIR K33 and K53 confirms our commitment to providing firefighters with a full range of TIC’s at price points that can meet every department’s needs and budget.”  

FLIR will unveil the FLIR K33 and K53 at FDIC Internatinoal this week. The K33 and K53 will be available globally on April 20th through established FLIR dealers and distributors and will begin shipping in the first half of 2016.
