Product Information

FLIR TG165 Spot Thermal Camera - Thermometer with Thermal Image

The FLIR TG165 is a new class of non-contact temperature measurement tool that we call an Imaging IR Thermometer. The TG165 blows away traditional single point spot temp guns and visual hybrids. Unlike old school radiometers that have you blindly stabbing away trying to find a heat anomaly component by component, the TG165 actually lets you see a true IR image of what’s cold and what’s hot so you quickly know where to point to get a good reading. That saves lots of time and speeds up troubleshooting. It also has two built-in laser pointers that define the size of the area you’re measuring so you can trust what you’re getting. It’s designed to detect high-temp situations often found on mechanical equipment, too. It’s a no-brainer to use, and handy and small enough to slip into a crowded tool bag. You don’t have to pay through the nose either. Priced under $500, it helps you equip everyone in the field and around the plant with the power of thermal.

FLIR TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer – How it Works

Thermal imaging is one of the most powerful technologies ever developed to enhance visual perception. The unaided human eye can only perceive a very narrow band of visible light along the electromagnetic spectrum, which also includes radio and microwaves, infrared and ultraviolet light, X-Rays, and gamma rays.

Thermal energy—or “heat”—resides within the infrared spectrum, which is invisible. However, a spot thermometer sensor is capable of converting thermal energy into a temperature measurement, and a thermal imaging detector converts thermal energy into an electronic thermal image that can be viewed on an LCD screen.

The TG165 utilizes both of these types of infrared technology, simultaneously. The spot thermometer emits a beam of infrared light that lands on an object and then bounces back. The thermometer determines the object’s apparent surface temperature based on how much thermal energy the object is emitting, reflecting, or transmitting.

The TG165’s thermal imager, on the other hand, includes a micro thermal camera that can passively scan an area and display images of hot and cold patterns on an LCD screen. Being able to “see” infrared radiation creates an entirely new level of awareness for professionals and consumers, alike. Users no longer have to guess where to take temperature readings. They can literally see hot and cold spots, making work more efficient and reliable.

The TG165’s IR thermometer has a Distance-to-Spot ratio of 24:1. In other words, from a distance of 24 inches (61 cm), the TG165 can measure the temperature of a one-inch spot (2.5 cm). If you double the distance to 48 inches (122 cm) the spot diameter will expand to two inches (5 cm), and so on.

The amount of thermal energy emitted by an object depends upon its temperature and how effi ciently it radiates thermal energy. This efficiency is called “emissivity.” Emissivity values range from 0.1 for very reflective material—such as shiny metal—to 1.00 for a pipe with a flat black finish. The TG165 has both adjustable and preset emissivity settings, and the TG165 user’s manual includes a list of common materials and their respective emissivity factors as a quick reference for users who are not trained in thermography.

Thermal imaging detects the infrared energy of any surface and produces a detailed image showing its temperature profile. Non-destructive and non-contact, the technology provides a safer, more cost-effective way to evaluate a building’s performance. It also has proven to be very effective and accurate tool for facility predictive maintenance (PdM) programs.

With thermal imager in hand, HVAC specialists and plumbing professionals get to see the heating and cooling issues in a whole new way. Since your profession is primarily about temperature control, why wouldn’t you use a tool that helps you visualize the problems that your customers can feel and are complaining about? You’ll be able to check air balance easier, locate air leaks and misrouted ductwork faster, and check for weatherization and other wasteful energy loss issues to confirm it’s not the furnace or AC that’s the culprit. Plus plumbers can use the tool to find clogs in drain pipes, locate hot and cold water lines in walls, and more.

From start to finish, FLIR infrared cameras can help you simplify your restoration and remediation jobs. Advanced features help you quickly scan large areas to assess what is restorable. An infrared camera helps you pinpoint water intrusion, find moisture beneath the surface, and document dryness with accuracy and confidence.

Easy Reporting - Busy restoration professionals can speed up surveys with the automated humidity alarms. Reporting is also simple since a FLIR camera includes software that supports templates, spell-check, and easy conversion of reports and images to PDF format for trouble-free emailing.

Q & A

Q. Why launch an Imaging IR Thermometer?

A. The advantage of an imaging IR thermometer is that it uses thermal imaging to reveal exactly where heating issues are occurring. Users no longer have to guess where to place their spot to gain the best temperature reading. The TG165 is also the perfect application for FLIR’s new Lepton® micro thermal camera, which captures vibrant, non-radiometric images that are easy to interpret.

Q. Who is the target customer?

A. Anyone who regularly uses an IR thermometer will benefit from the advanced capabilities of the TG165. It is simple enough for entry level users, but also powerful enough for experienced thermographers.

Q. Why do I need an Imaging IR thermometer?

A. The TG165 is a non-contact tool for measuring the apparent temperature of surfaces that may be too hot or cold to touch, inaccessible, or simply too dangerous to be near.

Q. How do Thermal imagers work?

A. Thermal imagers capture and display invisible infrared “heat” radiation, which all objects emit, transmit, or reflect. The TG165 displays temperature differences as contrasting colors on its LCD screen, with hot areas appearing brighter and cooler areas darker.

Q. At what distances can the TG165 IR thermometer read a temperature?

A. An IR thermometer takes the average surface temperature inside a given area, regardless of how far away you are. The farther from your target, the larger the area being measured is. For more accurate measurements, spot meters are generally used within a few feet of a given target. The TG165 has a spot ratio of 24 to 1, meaning it will measure a spot 1” in diameter from a distance of 24” (61 cm).

Q. What do the Lasers mean?

A. The TG165’s dual lasers provide a general, visual indication of the area being measured. They are best used at distances at or beyond 36”.

Q. How does it compare to the e4 and FLIR ONE?

A. The FLIR ONE, TG165, and e4 offer the same resolution thermal imaging, but each has different strengths. Professionals who use IR thermometers regularly should immediately see the value of the TG165. Both the TG165 and e4 are well-suited for industrial applications, with large buttons, intuitive menus, and a comfortable grip for one-handed operation.

The TG165 offers a single spot IR thermometer for temperature measurement, while the e4, is a fully radiometric thermal imaging camera, meaning that each of its 4,800 thermal pixels measures temperature. Also, the e4 features FLIR’s exclusive MSX® imaging, while the TG165 does not.

The TG165 differs significantly from the FLIR ONE in terms of form factor and features. The TG165 has the look and feel of a true test and measurement tool. It can measure temperatures ranging from -13 to 716°F (-25 to 380°C).

While it only captures still images, the TG165 has four emissivity presents, as well as customizable emissivity settings from .1 to .99. The TG165 can also withstand a 2 meter drop.

The FLIR ONE must attach to an iPhone 5 or 5s to be operational. It uses MSX, and can capture both thermal video and stills, but has a more limited temperature range of 32° F to 212° F (0° C to 100° C). Plus, it’s challenging to operate an iPhone one-handed or while wearing gloves, a safety requirement in many contexts. The TG165 is simply more suitable for the job site.

Q. What is the Warranty?

A. An automatic one-year warranty without registration. With registration within 60 days of purchase, FLIR offers an extended warranty of two years on the TG165 device and internal battery, and ten years on the Lepton sensor.

Q. Where do I use my TG165?

A. Any time someone would use an IR thermometer, the TG165 will provide superior performance. The TG165 will be a “must have” tool for electricians, HVAC techs, building contractors, maintenance techs, mechanics, and hobbyists.

Q. Are there any privacy issues with thermal imagers?

A. The TG165 does not provide “X-ray” vision. It can’t see through clothing, glass, or solid objects or structures. The TG165 allows you to visualize and measure surface temperature, only. That said, in many cases, the surface temperature of an object can be affected by things behind or under it, such as wooden studs behind a wall. You can easily see the location of the studs due to their effect on the surface temperature of the wall, without actually seeing through the wall.

Q. Are there accessories for the TG165?

A. An EVA protective case is available as an optional accessory.

Q. What is the resolution of the imager / display?

A. 80 x 60 pixel thermal image resolution with a two-inch LCD display.

Q. Can I adjust the scale and span of the thermal image?

A. No. The TG165 is fully automated for quick troubleshooting.

Q. What is the temperature range?

A. 14–716°F (–25 to 380°C)
 

Q. What are the emissivity settings?

A. The amount of IR energy emitted by an object depends upon its current temperature and how efficiently it radiates thermal energy. This is called “emissivity.” Emissivity values range from 0.1 for a very reflective object, such as a piece of shiny metal, to 1.00 for a flat black finish.

Q. Can the TG165 store images?

A. Yes. The TG165 comes with a removable 8 gb micro SD card installed, and can support memory cards up to 32 gb in size. Use the micro USB port to download via the included cord or remove the SD card.

Q. How is the TG165 charged?

A. The TG165 has an internal battery that is charged using the mini USB port and cable.

Q. Can I use images from the TG165 in FLIR Tools?

A. Yes and No. The TG165 generates non-radiometric bitmap images that cannot be directly imported into FLIR Tools. They must be converted to JPEGs first using third party software, then imported into FLIR Tools for viewing purposes or for use in a report.

Q. What data is saved in the image?

A. Temperature, emissivity, and image numbers are visible on each TG165 image. Date and time are stored in an image’s metadata.

Q. Can I replace the batteries?

A. No. FLIR will replace a TG165 battery at no cost within two years if the device is registered.

Q. How long will a charge last?

A. The TG165 can provide continuous scanning for 8+ hours. The typical use time between charges is five days. The shelf life of a fully-charged batter is 30 days.

Q. How rugged is the TG165?

A. The TG165 can withstand a 2 meter drop and is water resistant (IP54).

Disappointed

I bought this a while back and just started to use it. I believe the 4th time I powered it on it developed a yellow line across the screen which disappears after the sensor recalibrates. Notified FLIR if this was normal behavior and was told no and suggested I email repair services. After E-mailing repair services 2 days later I still have yet to hear a response. I'm still using the initial battery charge and only powered it up around 10 times now maybe 15 since I'm still trying to work on equipment. It has not been dropped banged around. Disappointing

FLIR TG165

Very happy with the TG 165 itself and would have given it a 5 star but the holsters we bought to go with the TG 165 are a fail. The temp gun fits nicely but you cannot use the gun in the holster because the lasers are blocked by the holster shroud. Needs a redesign.

Lots of places to hide before but not now. My Flir lets me see thru metal covers ,motor casings, and darkness.

Tequipment response: Thank you for the review. Just to clarify one point the reviewer made about seeing thought metal covers. The unit cannot see thought metal. The IR bounces off and back to the TG165. It can however see though darkness! Thanks again for the review.

Engine surveyor

Camera is great when relitevly low resolution is adequate. Has typical laser sight and temp readout if a IR temp gun, but having the picture of the surrounding area makes analysis of components much easier and more effective. Durable as a normal IR gun, and very long battery life on a charge. I use it for checking marine engine operation, and for the money it is a great tool to add to the bag.

Thermal Image Camera

I have used this tool over and over since I purchased it. I use it mostly for automotive electrical diagnostics. If a circuit has a problem and it is because of high resistance, this tool will find it and allows me to see things (heat) that I can't see with my eyes. It works especially well in trying to see wires and/or components that are getting hot but are covered up by wire looms or door panels etc. I highly recommend it. It will save you time and money with automotive electrical diagnostics.

Great product at a great price

As a replacement for two older IR thermometers this works great. It gives you a better idea of where exactly you are getting the reading. For the price, you can't beat taking a chance on the thermal camera to see if it is useful for what ever project you are doing. Just remember you get what you pay for with thermal imagers.

This themal imager is very easy to use and relatively inexpensive compared to others. Great for finding heat loss in boiler systems.

works OK for what it is

its a visual thermometer - NOTHING MORE -
the thermal image is NOT radiometric and the resolution is the lowest available.
Having said that - it works as designed and advertised and is a fair value.
unfortunately, I see wanna be electricians and home inspectors thinking this is the cats meow - take it from a professional thermographer - this is NOT a real thermal imager - its a visual thermometer.

Useful tool

The Flir TG165 is an invaluable tool, with no comparison on the field. So far the Flir TG164 helped isolate problems before damage could of took place. The imaging part is such an addition that helps provide such visual images of affected areas within the plant. So far two major disastrous incidents were avoided due to being able to visually target problematic areas.

Have owned the FLIR TG165 for about 7 months and it has worked well. Works great for an entry level thermal imager. Wish it had a little higher resolution but can not complain for such a reasonable price. Battery life is great and is easy to use. Recommended.

TG165 - Good entry level imager

A good imaging thermometer which is adequate for objects bigger than 6mm, preferably 12mm across. The thermal image is not itself calibrated so you cannot determine and the temperature is not stored for any single pixel. Instead, a spot thermal detector reads temperature reasonably accurately (maybe 2 deg C low on my unit using emissivity settings from manual). The image allows you to find hot or cold spots that can be checked with the spot meter or determined by other means if smaller than 6mm (1/4 inch). Finding the hot spot with the thermal meter for a reading can be difficult up close (less than 2 feet, about 65cm or so) because of parallax.

If you need to work with small components or up close, you need the E4 at a minimum.

As a former electric utility engineer, I knew the value of IR imaging. How can one resist at $400? See your own thermal image relected in a stainless fridge. Check the temperature of the sky, see which trees have flowing sap, Check your crock pot, Check for leaky home insulation. measure engine temperature. see those hot or warm connections, What a great tool/toy! You can watch epoxy cure! What a fascinating device now in the price range of the home hobbyist. Super product

FLIR TG165

I purchased the TG165 to do an energy audit of my home. I can't get over how sensitive this device is! It shows every little detail, including footprints of heat left on the carpeted floor after walking on it barefoot. It easily shows where the warmth from my attic is coming into my living area. I can't wait until it gets cold outside so I can see where the heat is escaping.
I was playing with this device and I pointed it up at the sky, expecting to see nothing but a blank screen. Boy was I surprised when I could see the heat signature of the clouds! Really cool.
It is super easy to use. I did have to briefly look at the manual to understand what some of the icons/settings were but that is all. Works great right out of the box.

Good device, few flaws

Imaging is OK albeit with low resolution and modest frame rate. Higher resolution cheaper devices are available such as imagers for the iPhone if that will work for your needs.
Fatal flaw with the date and time which need to be reset every time you power on. Also a fatal flaw with erasing the entire library of images taken because there is no confirmation in the erase operation - just pick the icon and woosh, everything's gone.

Durable, practical solution

Product has a durable/ solid feel. Image is on the smaller side, but what I expected. I am able to use the unit to analyze electrical and mechanical hot spots on machinery that might be indications of eminent failure. Intuitive menus. If you know nothing about IR units, learn what emissivity is. This unit offers an adjustable emissivity setting for accurate temperature readings, which is helpful when looking at different materials.

FLIR TG165 - Awesome product

I purchased the FLIR TG165 to spot areas of my home that are losing heat. It works perfectly for this task. I found that the seal on my attic stairs wasn't as good as I thought and that my windows are great!

In playing with this tool I found a not so obvious use as well. It is EXCELLENT for finding dog droppings in the yard at night, they light up bright red on the screen when fresh! Much easier than hunting with a flashlight. LOL all around a great and useful tool.

The T165 is an incredibly versatile and powerful addition to any technician's bag of tools! Its sensitivity and ability to differentiate temperature gradients at the 0.1 degree F scale amazed my senior engineers, particularly since this less than $500 instrument outperforms (in some ways) our older $5000 Thermal Imagers.

Flir TG 165 IR imaging thermometer

The TG 165 is an awesome tool at a very affordable price. I have used it in home inspections to help diagnose various anomalies. Although I would recommend a higher end/higher resolution device for thermal inspections, the TG 165 is a good solution for someone wanting to get acquainted with thermal technology. It is very useful for the intended purpose.

FLIR TG-165 & TEquipment what a great combo

About one month ago a friend of mine sent me a link to a thermal imagining thermometer that was offered for sale. That link turned out to be to the TEquipment.net site, which I had never heard of. I decided to order the FLIR TG-165. Shortly after ordering, I had a question about my order, so I clicked on the "live chat" link thinking I would be put off and have to send an email, but much to my surprise, a live agent answered. This live agent was very efficient and friendly and addressed my concern in a matter of moments. After receiving my TG-165 a few days later, I had another question, so back to the TEquipment site for another chat. Again, quick, accurate and courteous response to my question. I love my TG-165, it is performing better than what I had hoped. It is a quality unit that will allow me to do my work quickly and effectively. Couple this with the EXCELLENT customer service that TEquipment has provided, what more could one ask for? I am very pleased with the process from start to finish, and I will definitely buy from TEquipment again as well as FLIR. Thank you for such a great customer experience.

The new TG165 is very handy. I own and use two single point IR Thermometers but the TG165 brings a new price point to IR temperature measurement. As the saying goes, a picture is worth 1000 words. Locating SMD parts that are getting hot is so much easier with a thermal image of the circuit board. I am sure my clients will appreciate the additional provided by the TG165 image.

Flir TG165

I bought the TG 165 to see where I needed to target insulation on my early 1900's house. When its cold and windy outside, I can see the studs through the plaster walls. I can see gaps in the insulation between the studs in the walls. Should save me a lot of work insulating areas that don't need insulating. It's pretty cool the very corners of the outside walls were never insulated-no good place to blow the insulation in. I think I'll be able to fix this with the foam insulation and a couple of pretty small holes.

Great Cx / Energy Auditing tool for the price

I have not extensively used the device yet, but so far it has performed well. I use it in commissioning activities and energy auditing. A great extra tool for the "go-kit". Much better than a standard IR gun. I've been wanting one for years, but when the price was in the $thousands, I could not justify buying. At this price, it was worth the risk of buying and using. The only drawback was the lack of a useful users manual that came with the device.

FLIR TG165 Imaging IR Thermometer

This is a great tool for seeing with a set of "infrared eyes". It lets you see temperature differences in materials of all kinds to aid in troubleshooting. We use it to monitor bearing temperatures on our farm equipment. Occasional monitoring of bearings can provide 'normal' operating temperatures. If a bearing is starting to fail, we can see a temperature that is running higher than normal. We can then determine a course of action before total failure (if it's a sealed bearing that's hard to replace, we may drill a hole in the seal and shoot some grease in to buy some time and replace during the evening, etc.). Much better than finding out after it's too late. It's also good for checking electrical contacts that may be running hot due to electrical resistance and causing issues(contactors, terminations, etc.) I've used the higher end FLIR equipment in the past that superimposes a visual camera image onto the thermal image and also assigns a temperature to every graphic pixel (downloadable for spreadsheet use, etc.). While that is nice, it really is overkill for what we need it for, and cost a lot more for those additional features. The TG165 does surprisingly well for a thermal only image and the lower affiliated resolution. For the $500 price tag though, it's definitely worth the money. It comes with a microSD card that allows you to save images - great way to convey info to anyone that needs to understand the issue at hand. If budget is an issue (and it usually is), seriously consider this tool, as it gives a lot of bang for the buck.

High Dynamic Range makes all the difference

At first I wasn't too impressed with the resolution. But after I used it for a while I started to notice the units high sensitivity. The individual pixel high dynamic range makes up for the resolution(80x60). I started to see just a few degree difference under the floor board and visually locate the spot! Suddenly I was very impressed. Very happy with my purchase. Don't be fooled by low cost units- the sensitivity rating makes all the difference.

This is a great tool for the tool bag. I am a home inspector and have had spot radiometers in the past, but this is so much better! The IR image is quick to analyze and being able to capture the image is great. Being able to tweak the emissivity is also nice. Fits in my bag, and the power up is quick. Battery life is great as well.

Works great

The TG165 is handy to have when operating high-power equipment like we do at the radio station. I used it to confirm that there were no problems with hot spots when we first turned up the output power to 250KW for one of our transmitters. Image detail is good enough to easily see heat sources. I barely use the laser designator due to the good imagery.
