FLIR T500-Series
Professional Thermal Imaging Cameras

FLIR T530/T540 cameras offer precision measurement and crisp, vibrant imagery in a versatile, handheld format. With an improved ergonomic design, rapid-response user interface, and the exacting detail of FLIR’s unique Macro Mode, T500-Series cameras increase efficiency, reduce test times, and provide new insights into your target’s thermal behavior.


Deepen Your Understanding of Processes

Record more than 160,000 points of non-contact temperature measurement, with high sensitivity and component detail down to 71 µm/pixel spot size (50 µm with macro lens available in 2018).

Reduce Test Times, Improve Efficienty

Set up and begin testing quickly thanks to the rapid-response, intuitive user interface, then get right into collecting and analyzing thermal transient data through FLIR Tools or ResearchIR.

Optimized for Lab & Industrial Environments

Whether it’s the versatility of 180° optical block rotation, or the flexibility of USB, Wi-Fi, and radiometric data streaming, the T500-Series adapts easily to measuring targets of varying sizes even in difficult-to-reach environments.
