FLIR delivers 100,000th infrared camera
TUCSON, Ariz. – FLIR Systems has announced the delivery of its 100,000th commercial-use infrared camera. The FLIR thermal imager was sold by Professional Equipment (www.professionalequipment.com), a distributor of FLIR infrared cameras, to Bob Childs, owner of Bob the Inspector, Inc. in nearby Green Valley, AZ.
To commemorate the milestone, Mr. Childs and Professional Equipment will be honored at an awards ceremony and press conference held on Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 12 noon in the Courtyard Royale hall at the Radisson Suites Hotel, Tucson, AZ. In addition to receiving the 100,000th infrared camera award, Mr. Childs will also receive his FLIR BCAM SD infrared camera compliments of FLIR Systems.
Tom Scanlon, Vice President for Americas Thermography, spoke about the upcoming event: “It is fitting that our one-hundred-thousandth infrared camera goes to Bob Childs, a home-inspection professional. As our country and our world continue to strive to go green, home inspectors and energy auditors are at the forefront of that monumental effort, evaluating our homes and buildings to ensure they are sound and energy efficient. We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone with our valued distributor, Professional Equipment and with Mr. Childs here in Arizona.”
Scanlon added, “This remarkable achievement is a reflection of FLIR’s success in its efforts to make infrared technology increasingly available and affordable. While FLIR’s earliest thermal imagers cost $50,000, today’s professionals can access FLIR technology for a fraction of that, with cameras now starting at under $2,000.”
In addition to serving as a key tool in home inspection and building diagnostics, FLIR’s commercial infrared cameras (excludes defense and surveillance markets) have been used around the world by professionals in a variety of applications ranging from law enforcement, industrial plant maintenance, electrical and HVAC diagnostics, as well as research and development.
