Streamlined High Performance Made Even More Affordable
FLIR’s new K53 provides you with two new lower-cost, easier-to use options without sacrificing the reliable clarity and performance that FLIR K-Series TICs are well-known for. It features FLIR’s FSX™ Flexible Scene Enhancement that intensifies structural and textural details in thermal images for better perspective and orientation.
By making it easier to see more clearly under the smokiest, darkest conditions, the K53 can help improve situational awareness and provide first responders a greater sense of confidence and safety as they forge ahead to fight fires and save lives.
Fire Power Simplified
Simple operation lets you stay focused on the job. A single, glove-friendly button gets you up and running. A squeeze of the trigger freezes a K33 image or captures K53 stills and videos for reviewing later.
Higher-resolution thermal imaging once exclusive to FLIR Kx5 models is now available in a streamlined package. Choose the for K53 for 320 x 240 quality.
Vivid FSX™ Thermal Images
A big, bright 4” LCD and onboard FSX digital processing enhances thermal image detail for greater visibility, making it easier for firefighters to find their way. 60Hz frame rate keeps up with the action.
With the K53, FLIR now offers the firefighting and rescue community the broadest cost-effective range of high performance TICs – part of our mission to help you stretch your budget and put more of these essential tools into the hands of those who could use them most.
