FLIR Launches the First Thermal Camera for Firefighting Aerial Ladders
Monday, April 18, 2016
Today FLIR announced the FLIR KF6, the fire industry’s first thermal imaging camera (TIC) designed for integration on aerial ladders. The fixed mounted FLIR KF6 provides firefighters with an aerial perspective needed to better observe structural fires in large buildings or warehouses, allowing
apparatus operators to pinpoint hot spots in the smokiest conditions during overhaul operations.
With a crisp 640 x 480 resolution thermal image and wide, 69-degree field-of-view, the FLIR KF6 enables operators to see through smoke to identify the seat of the fire for accurate water infiltration. The FLIR KF6 thermal camera uses FLIR’s proprietary Flexible Scene Enhancement (FSX) technology, which provides ultra-sharp thermal detail even in extreme temperatures.
The KF6 will be available to purchase on April 20th through established FLIR dealers and distributors and will begin shipping globally in the first half of 2016 with an MSRP of $9,329.
