FLIR E96 IR camera


The FLIR E96 IR camera is a pistol-grip camera with 640 × 480 thermal resolution so inspectors can quickly diagnose failures.

The FLIR E96 IR camera is FLIR’s first pistol-grip camera with 640 × 480 thermal resolution so inspectors can survey high-voltage, hazardous targets safely and quickly diagnose electrical and mechanical failures. Interchangeable AutoCal™ lenses offer complete coverage of near and distant targets. The laser distance meter ensuring the crisp focus needed for accurate temperature measurement. Onboard FLIR Inspection Route feature runs pre-planned survey routes to help inspectors stay organized when surveying large or multiple locations. For a limited time, the purchase of a FLIR E96 IR camera includes a 3-month subscription to FLIR Thermal Studio Pro and FLIR Route Creator.

  • outstanding thermal imagery

    The 640 × 480 thermal resolution plus FLIR UltraMax® and MSX® image enhancement ensure the E96 produces the most virbrant, easiest-to-interpret images in its class.


    Interchangeable, auto-calibrating lenses—from telephoto to wide-angle—allow users to target electrical hot spots safely. Check for mechanical faults, and survey roofs or building envelopes quickly.


    Onboard integration with FLIR routing software*, a built-in mic for voice annotation. And report generation features all help the E96 streamline your workday.

  • On-screen area measurement

    When scanning an area with the Exx-Series, you can set a measurement box over a target and use laser distance measurement to calculate the square area inside that box. The camera saves the area measurement along with other image data, so you can create detailed reports that lead to faster repairs.

  • Laser distance measurement

    The Exx-Series offers more than just a laser pointer. These cameras also have a laser receiver that can calculate distances between the camera and a target. This not only improves the autofocus response, but also adds critical data for reporting.
