SKU: FLIR E53 Category:

The FLIR E53 is your entry into the Exx-Series, with the resolution and sensitivity you need at the right price. The 240 × 180 true native resolution offers more than 43,200 points of temperature measurement and produces crisp, vibrant imagery, which can be enhanced with FLIR’s patented MSX® for added perspective.

                  Reimagined from the handle up




The E53’s spot-size ratio allows you to take the most accurate temperature readings on smaller targets, at farther distances.


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


Customizable work folders, a built-in mic for voice annotation, and report generation features all help the E53 streamline your workday.
