The FLIR K2 is a rugged, reliable, and extremely economical thermal imaging camera that is specially designed for firefighting applications and severe conditions. Producing thermal images at 160 x 120 pixel resolution displayed on a bright 3" screen, the K2 helps firefighters find their way through thick smoke, find stranded victims faster under the murkiest conditions, scan for hotspots during overhaul, assess situations with confidence, and expedite decisions.
The FLIR K2 can be set to one of five different imaging modes depending on the primary use of the unit. Modes can be changed using the FLIR Tools software program. The K2 uses FLIR's patented MSX technology that etches key details from the built-in visible light camera onto the thermal image, helping firefighters identify structures and surroundings without compromising temperature data.
The FLIR K2 is compact and lightweight and can be easily attached to SCBA gear. An intuitive user interface lets firefighters focus on the job at hand. And a single large button makes the camera simple to activate even with heavy gloves on. Engineered to survive tough operating conditions, the K2 withstands a 2-meter drop onto concrete, is water resistant (IP67) and is fully operational up to +260°C / +500°F (for up to 3 minutes).
The K2's economical price makes powerful thermal imaging more accessible to more firefighters – a small investment that can help pay big dividends when it comes to safety, saving lives, and protecting property.
