FLIR Systems launches uncooled camera

This new handheld camera offers inspection professionals the features they need to find potentially dangerous, invisible methane leaks at natural gas power plants, renewable energy production facilities, industrial plants, and other locations along a natural gas supply chain.

The GF77 provides methane gas detection to empower the oil and gas industry to reduce emissions and ensure a safer work environment.

The camera features an ergonomic design, an LCD touchscreen, and a viewfinder to make it easy to use in any lighting conditions. It is engineered specifically to detect methane in order to improve gas inspections and reduce the chance of false readings. It also offers FLIR's patented High Sensitivity Mode (HSM), which accentuates movement to make tiny gas plumes more visible to the user.

FLIR designed the GF77 to include laser-assisted autofocus to help inspectors target leaks better, and one-touch contrast improvement that makes gases stand out clearly against the background. Additionally, a rapid-response graphical user interface helps professionals increase efficiency by allowing them to organise job folders, record notes, and add GPS location annotation on the camera.
