Designed to visually scan large areas for moisture issues, air leaks, electrical problems, and more, the FLIR MR265 Moisture Meter and Thermal Imager with MSX empowers professionals to quickly identify and locate water leaks, and other moisture issues at the source.

This dual thermal imager and measurement tool combines a 160 × 120 resolution Lepton thermal camera, visual camera, laser pointer, and both pin and pinless moisture detection for faster leak identification and measurement, plus offers easy reporting through the FLIR Thermal Studio Suite.

FLIR MR265 

Home inspectors, contractors, and other professionals who want to consolidate tools without jeopardizing function, will appreciate the multiple ways to read and report moisture levels with the MR265, as well as identify temperature anomalies that could denote issues from leaking pipes, to overheating circuits, to inefficient windows and doors.

When compared to traditional non-thermal imaging moisture meters, inspection time is significantly decreased with the MR265. Its ability to emboss edge detail from a two-megapixel visible camera onto the thermal image, via MSX, provides the user significantly more detail and context on screen and in saved images to identify issues quickly and efficiently.

Pin and pinless moisture measurement

The MR265 also offers flexibility in identifying moisture issues, providing both pin and pinless capabilities

The MR265 also offers flexibility in identifying moisture issues, providing both pin and pinless capabilities. The pinless option can provide qualitative measurements through an integrated sensor, for situations where a more invasive method either isn’t possible or would cause unwanted damage.

Conversely, pin measurements produce quantifiable measurements using a resistive sensor that can pierce cavities and other suspected moisture spots within walls, ceilings, and floors. When used with the thermal imager, operators can scan an entire interior wall to narrow down the moisture location, use the integrated sensor to pinpoint the source of water intrusion, and then measure the exact amount of moisture without requiring unnecessary demolition.

Functionality can be further expanded through six compatible accessory probes and sensors available for the MR265, such as the FLIR MR08 hammer and wall cavity probe combo and the FLIR MR05 impact pin moisture probe.

FLIR Thermal Studio Suite

Streamlined reporting capabilities available through FLIR Thermal Studio Suite can also decrease diagnostic and reporting time. Users can directly upload thermal JPEGs with the included USB cable, to either FLIR Thermal Studio or to a compatible reporting solution. They can also produce thermal, MSX, visual image reports, or before-and-after reports containing all three types of images through the FLIR software.

This can help users more easily communicate pre- and post-repair activity, ultimately providing peace of mind that issues relating to rot, mold, electrical, or energy inefficiencies have been identified and remedied.

FLIR Systems United VMS Provides Surveillance For Abu Dhabi’s Safe City Initiative

Abu Dhabi is a major cultural and commercial centre in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), accounting for roughly two-thirds of the UAE’s economy. While oil and natural gas make up a large portion of its GDP, Abu Dhabi has positioned itself as a premiere tourist destination, with major investments in luxury resorts and business hotels. Consequently, public safety is a top priority — and FLIR Systems is playing a critical role in the city’s long-term safe city initiative. Recently,...

FLIR PT-Series Thermal Camera And SpotterRF’s CSR Systems Offer Perimeter Detection For U.S. Electrical Substations

There are over 55,000 electrical substations in the United States. These substations, along with power plants and transmission lines, provide power for millions of people. It is imperative that these locations remain secure from intrusion and sabotage. If just a handful of these substations were rendered inoperable, the U.S. could face a serious blackout. The 2013 sniper attack on PG&E Corporation’s Metcalf transmission substation, which knocked out several transformers and totalled o...
