The FLIR TG165-X helps you visualize the hot and cold spots that can indicate electrical faults, mechanical break-downs, or air and water leaks. This all-in-one, non-contact measurement and imaging tool displays temperature anomalies on screen, allowing you to inspect efficiently and pinpoint the source of problems faster than with a single-spot IR thermometer. See components clearly and even read labels thanks to FLIR patented MSX image enhancement, which adds visual details to full thermal images. The bullseye laser ensures you’re always targeting the right component for measurement while easy-to-use buttons and settings help you complete the job quickly and stress-free. With internal storage for up to 50,000 images and a rechargeable Li-ion battery, the FLIR TG165-X is ready to go right out of the box.
