The FLIR EST range of thermal solutions includes an improved exploratory mode, which offers rapid, secure and simplified first-line screening

FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) today announced the modification of its thermal imaging cameras for rapid, contactless, high skin temperature screening *. FLIR EST ™ thermal screening solutions provide a first-line filter at the entrance to buildings and in high-traffic

areas, to improve safety and help curb the spread of COVID-19. The cameras of the FLIR Axxx-EST, FLIR T5xx-EST, and FLIR Exx-EST ranges are designed to simplify the screening process, reducing the workload for screening officers, and respecting the recommendations regarding social distancing. .

"The new FLIR EST thermal solutions are the result of almost twenty years of experience in the design and manufacture of thermal measurement solutions for skin temperature-based screening," said Jim Cannon, CEO of FLIR.

“These cameras are to date our easiest cameras to configure and operate for skin temperature screening, and require only limited training to start screening people faster and more accurately. "

FLIR Screen-EST mode

The new EST cameras also include an improved FLIR Screen-EST mode, built into the camera, which increases the yield capacity by 25% compared to the previous version.

In order to further increase accuracy, the new Screen-EST mode automatically generates an average temperature, based on a reference sample, and compares the skin temperature of individuals compared to this reference, which reduces the uncertainty of the measurements, linked to natural fluctuations in body temperature and the effects of the environment.

This mode can issue or display an alarm when the camera detects an elevated temperature above a defined threshold.

If the screening method detects an individual with a high skin temperature, the individual should be examined using a medical device such as a thermometer.

FLIR Axxx-EST range

The A500-EST and A700-EST cameras are designed for fixed and permanent installations, and can be deployed as a single, stand-alone screening station, or networked.

The cameras can be connected to most video management systems, and the camera housing has multiple mounting points that facilitate installation on a tripod, or permanent.

FLIR T5xx-EST range

The T540-EST and T560-EST cameras are designed to operate both in the context of a mobile installation and a more or less permanent installation.

The flexible form factor allows mobile operation without cables, with a battery life of up to four hours, or hands-free operation thanks to a built-in tripod slot.

FLIR Exx-EST range

Lightweight, ergonomic, designed for portable use, and powered by battery, the E54-EST and E86-EST cameras offer a possibility of mobile screening, thanks to their integrated touch screen, bright and easy to use.

Tripod slots are also available for Exx-EST models.

The FLIR Axxx-EST, T5xx-EST, and Exx-EST ranges will be available for purchase worldwide in the third quarter of 2020 on and via authorized FLIR distributors. For more information, visit

* FLIR cameras are only intended for first line screening of skin temperature.

They do not detect fevers or viruses, nor any specific medical pathology. Anyone with a high skin temperature should undergo secondary screening by medical personnel with medical grade equipment.
