Product Information

Experience the Quality and Precision of the
FLIR E53 Thermal Imaging Camera


Best Clarity, High Image Resolution
The FLIR E53 offers 240 x 180 true native resolution (43,200 pixels) for crisp, vibrant imagery that can be enhanced with FLIR’s patented MSX® technology for added perspective.


MSX incorporates real-time thermal video enhanced with visible spectrum definition. There’s almost no need for a separate digital image—digital camera detail is embossed onto the thermal video and stills for easier viewing and better target identification. Rather than a blurry bunch of colors, you get an all-in-one thermal picture with numbers, labels, and structural features that help you zero in on potential problem areas.


Superior Spot-Size Performance
The E53's spot-size ratio allows you to take the most accurate temperature readings on smaller targets, at farther distances. This feature is especially handy when diagnosing attics, crawlspaces, and other areas where entry can be challenging. With the FLIR E53, you can diagnose more from a distance, saving you time and frustration on every job.


Large, Brilliant Touchscreen
The FLIR E53 features a large touchscreen, so you can easily view images and scroll between screens with the tap of a finger. The screen also offers a 160° viewing angle, so even when viewing the screen at an angle, you can still see clear, crisp imagery.


Enhanced Troubleshooting Features
The E53 measures up to 650°C (1200°F), offers 3 spotmeters, and displays the max/min temperature within an area live, on-screen.


Faster, Easier Reporting
The FLIR E53 offers customizable work folders, making it easy to organize and store readings. A built-in mic allows for voice annotation, so you can narrate what you’re seeing for review later. The FLIR E53 is designed to simplify reporting and streamline your workday.
