FLIR TG165 Spot Thermal Camera
The FLIR TG165 is our cheapest thermal imaging camera (relative to the rest of the FLIR range). It can be used for a wide range of applications including electrical, mechanical and automotive. It is also known as an "Imaging IR Thermometer".
- Point and shoot - use it to scan and save thermal images of just about anything.
- Wide measurement range - measure between -25˚C and 380˚C, with a measurement resolution of 0.1˚C.
- Rugged design - designed for a 2 meter drop test.

How the FLIR TG165 differs from other FLIR Thermal Imaging Cameras
The FLIR TG165 described on this page is a new low-cost, entry-level thermal imaging camera.
It differs in a number of ways to the professional FLIR thermal cameras, most notably:
- It is much much cheaper!
- It has a lower thermal resolution at 80 x 60 pixels.
- There is no visual camera or MSX technology (see FLIR Ex and FLIR Exx for what we mean).
- Saved images are not radiometric which means you can only record the one spot temperature on the stored image (whereas with the other cameras you can use the FLIR Tools software to inspect other areas of the image even after they have been taken).
Despite these key differences, the FLIR TG165 is ideal for many applications, particularly those which were previously made out of reach by the higher prices of the main FLIR range.
