BEIJING /PRNewswire/ — RS Components (RS), the trading brand ofElectrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has announced a major new distribution agreement with FLIR Systems, giving customers access to high-performing, portable thermal imaging instruments suitable for testing, troubleshooting and building-maintenance applications.

The market-leading instruments now available from RS include the FLIR E4/E5/E6/E8 and FLIR E40/E50/E60 thermal imaging cameras, as well as the newly launched FLIR TG165 imaging IR thermometer and FLIR C2, the world’s first full-featured, pocket-sized thermal camera. In total, 35 new products join the RS test & measurement portfolio, including accessories such as carry cases, tripod adapters, batteries, chargers and power supplies.

Valerie Ramon, Global Head of Electrical, Test & Measurement, RS Components, said, “The FLIR Systems range is a valuable extension to our portfolio, and delivers advanced features with affordability that allows even small contractors to use thermal imaging to enhance their test, maintenance and troubleshooting capabilities. We have worked with FLIR Systems to create a unique special offer for the E4-E8 series, and invite customers to celebrate with us by taking advantage of this great introductory package.”

Thomas J. Scanlon, Vice President, Worldwide Test Equipment Sales, FLIR Systems, added, “RS has a large and loyal customer base among electrical and building maintenance engineers; the owners of the toolkits we are looking to expand with our portable thermal imaging devices. We expect this new agreement to increase sales and share in our key target markets.”

The E4, E5, E6 and E8 thermal cameras included in the RS exclusive introductory offer are accessible and functional instruments that feature a focus-free lens, easy one-button operation and resolution choices from 4800 to 76,800 pixels. These handheld cameras support multiple imaging modes including thermal, visual and picture-in-picture, and feature FLIR’s MSX® image-enhancement technology. An on-screen spot thermometer allows fast temperature measurement, and search features help the user pinpoint temperature extremes.

Also joining the RS portfolio, the FLIR TG165 is a revolutionary imaging IR thermometer that enables faster and richer thermal analysis than is possible with a conventional spot IR thermometer. Users can perform more accurate and detailed analysis, and record before and after images to provide visual proof that any problems have been solved.

The FLIR E40, E50 and E60 are high-performance thermal imaging cameras with touchscreen capability, up to three user-selectable measurement boxes and moveable spots, and MSX® image-enhancement technology. These cameras can be fitted with interchangeable wide-angle or telephoto lenses, giving extra flexibility to optimise field of view, image clarity and accuracy to suit various applications. A Wi-Fi app is also available, allowing users to send thermal images to a smartphone or tablet.

RS will also supply selected FLIR Systems test and measurement instruments, including the DM93 digital multimeter, and the CM83, CM85 and CM78 handheld power clamps with power analysis and VFD diagnostics. The CM78 has a built-in IR thermometer, making this device ideal for use with high-amperage systems and temperature-controlled equipment.
