Condition monitoring with the FLIR T865

FLIR T865 joins the T-Series Family with improved accuracy and now features FLIR Inspection Route.  A high performance Thermal Camera designed for efficient condition monitoring and science applications.

Lets look at:

  1. Who it's designed for
  2. Example applications
  3. It's key features
  4. Where it fits in the family of FLIR Thermal Cameras
  5. What is Inspection Route?


FLIR T865 Perfect for:

  • Condition monitoring in manufacturing and power generation industries
  • Electrical condition and mechanical equipment inspection
  • Research and development applications

 Why is it perfect for these industries?

  1. Impressive temperature measurement accuracy: ±1 °C or ±1%
  2. Wider temperature range: -40 °C to 120 °C
  3. Improved analysis: More on-camera tools


With the accuracy and analysis tools on the T865 companies can reliably prevent equipment breakdowns and outages in:

  • Utility substations
  • Power generation and distribution
  • Data centres
  • Manufacturing plants
  • Within the facilities electrical and mechanical systems
  • Research and development - The improved accuracy provides the temperature measurement detail required to eliminate any guesswork in research / science


FLIR T865 Example Applications:

Inspection of overhead power lines: 6° telephoto lens provides the required magnification for those routinely inspecting the condition of small targets at a distance

Inspections through an IR window: 42° wide angle lens and on-camera transmission adjustment ensures safe and accurate measurement of targets within enclosures

Inspection of small componentry: Macro lens, along with the new macro-mode, provides 2x magnification compared to the standard lens

Perfect for power substations: Plan your workday for optimum efficiency; FLIR Route Creator and Inspection Mode guides you to important targets so you can document qualitative and quantitative thermal data.  Helps inspectors spend less time in the field and experience less hassle when creating survey reports!


FLIR T865 Thermal Camera Inspection Route Perfect for power substations 


Perfect for research and development: FLIR Research Studio; record and evaluate thermal data from multiple cameras and recorded sources simultaneously. The data can then be saved and shared in workspaces to more easily collaborate with colleagues, saving time and reducing the potential for misinterpreted data due to missing information.

FLIR's Jason Cargill explains Inspection Route:

FLIR ‘Inspection Route’ is a brand new function installed in the firmware of the latest FLIR Ex6 and FLIR T-Series Thermal Imaging Camera ranges.  It is optimised to be used in conjunction with ‘FLIR Thermal Studio Pro’ software through installation of the new software plug-in called ‘FLIR Route Creator’.

For those users of FLIR Thermal Imaging Cameras for Condition Monitoring / Predictive Maintenance applications, think of FLIR 'Inspection Route' as a ‘roadmap’ to help navigate those regular asset routes more efficiently.

This system provides a complete and reliable solution for recording thermal asset data, and managing the workflow efficiently, to produce effective records and detailed reports.
