FLIR E50bx Diagnostic Thermal Imaging Camera

FLIR E50bx infrared inspection camera

Professional Building Inspection

The FLIR E50bx is a mid-range camera part of the "bx" line of FLIR Exx-Series thermal imaging cameras. These "bx" models are designed specifically for home and building inspection applications and include numerous features designed to make work easier in these areas. Chief among these features are FLIR Alarm Alerts. On the E50bx, Alarm Alerts can be set up to alert users to humidity and dew point, as well as areas where in-wall insulation is lacking. These alerts can be very helpful when trying to determine causes of building envelope issues or when trying to maximize building efficiency. FLIR has also included features like FLIR Tools Mobile, which make reporting fast and easy even when in the field. With FLIR Tools Mobile, users can also stream live thermal video and make adjustments to camera settings via a Wi-Fi connection. This can be helpful when showing and describing issues to clients.

FLIR E50bx Features

FLIR MSX Thermal Image Blending

The FLIR E50bx comes equipped with FLIR's powerful MSX thermal fusion technology. Thermal fusion, or image blending, is a method of combining thermal and visible light images to create more detailed thermal pictures. Many manufacturers incorporate some form of this technology, however FLIR MSX is unique. Rather than overlay thermal and visible images, FLIR MSX actually extracts highlights and details from visible light images then combines them with corresponding infrared images in-camera. The resulting images are much more detailed. Structural elements, labels, numbers, and other fine details can easily be seen in MSX thermal images. This virtually eliminates the need for a reference image. The images below are real examples of MSX and non-MSX images. The difference is clear.

Intuitive & Ergonomic Design

The FLIR E50bx incorporates many features which make inspections and diagnostic duties easier. The camera's integrated 3.5 inch LCD touch screen provides easy access to analysis tools, like spots and area boxes, as well as camera settings. FLIR's proprietary Auto Orientation function keeps screen images upright no matter how the camera is held. The E50bx also features intuitive button-based operation, which can be used with one hand even while gloved for more streamlined inspections. The E50bx's manual focus mode can also be used at any time by adjusting the large, rubberized manual focus ring.

Wireless FLIR Tools Mobile App

FLIR Tools Mobile Wi-Fi App

FLIR Tools Mobile is a free app for Android and Apple devices which allows for wireless communication between the E50bx infrared camera and devices with the app via a Wi-Fi connection. FLIR Tools Mobile can stream live thermal video from the E50bx, making it easy to show problem areas to clients. FLIR Tools Mobile also gives you the ability to change camera settings in real-time as well as make adjustments to images after capturing. Above all, FLIR Tools Mobile makes reporting fast and easy. Simply import your images via Wi-Fi, create professional PDF reports in the app, and send them out via email, Dropbox and other services.

FLIR MeterLink

FLIR MeterLink allows for Bluetooth-enabled communication between the FLIR E50bx infrared camera and certain FLIR and Extech moisture and clamp meters. This means that thermal and electrical data can be embedded directly into thermal images. Having this data included with infrared images can make identifying and quantifying thermal events easier when moisture or electrical variables are involved. This makes MeterLink especially helpful in home inspection applications.

Digital Camera, Laser & Flashlight

The FLIR E50bx features a built-in 3.1 megapixel visible light digital camera for capturing reference images of areas where you perform thermal inspections. Incorporated with the digital camera is a powerful LED light which doubles as a camera flash and independent flashlight for inspecting dark areas. Another integrated tool which makes image capture and identification easier is the built-in laser pointer on the E50bx. This laser can help you align your camera to a reference spot or marker for more accurate aim when shooting.

Alarm Alerts – The FLIR E50bx, as part of the FLIR "bx" series of infrared cameras, features Alarm Alerts. These alerts can be set to notify you to the prescence of humidity and dew point, as well as areas where insulation has failed, which can be crucial for home inspection applications.

Measuring Modes – The FLIR E50bx features a range of measuring modes inlcuding 3 spotmeters, 3 moveable area boxes, isotherm, auto hot/cold spot, and Delta T measuring. A scalable picture-in-picture mode with the option to use FLIR MSX is also available.

FLIR Lens Options – The FLIR E50bx standard lens features a 25 degree field of view, a mid-range FOV good for most applications. FLIR also offers 15 degree telephoto and 45 degree wide angle lens options for the E50bx to expand the camera's versatility for more specialized applications.

Annotations – The FLIR E50bx allows you to easily add voice or text comments to images. This makes inspections more streamlined and saves you time during the image analysis process.

Q & A

Q:) How is the E50bx different from the standard FLIR E50 camera?
A:) The E50bx is designed for home inspection and building diagnostic applications. As such, it features a smaller temperature range than the E50 but includes unique Alarm Alerts the notify users to the presence of moisture and other variables.

Q:) How does the E50bx compare to other "bx" cameras in the series?
A:) The E50bx is a mid-range model between the E40bx and E60bx cameras. It features 240 x 180 pixel resolution as well as scalable picture-in-picture mode and 4x continuous digital zoom. The E60bx has a higher resolution as well as the listed features, while the E40bx has lower resolution, 2x zoom and fixed P-i-P. 

Q:) Will the E50bx camera let me know if water is definitely present in a wall?
A:) No, the E50bx will not tell you if the anomaly that you are seeing is water. While the camera will show that there is activity in a certain spot, the camera will NOT tell you if it's water. In order to determine if it is moisture we always recommend purchasing a moisture meter. FLIR MeterLink allows you to connect the E50bx to certain FLIR and Extech moisture meters.
