FLIR is on a mission to make high quality thermal imaging cameras standard issue equipment for every member of a fire crew. The FLIR K2 makes that possible by providing capability, ruggedness, and reliability at an affordable price. With features such as Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX®), easy-to-use buttons, and operability in temperatures up to 500°C, the K2 is a small investment that pays big dividends–saving lives, protecting property, and ensuring firefighter safety.

Rugged. Reliable. Life-saving.

  • Powerful Yet Affordable

    The K2 makes high-quality thermal imaging more accessible so more first responders can help save lives and protect property.

  • Compact and Easy to Use

    This lightweight camera attaches easily to turnouts, and offers simplified, single-button controls that can be used with heavy gloves.

  • Rugged and Reliable

    The K2 withstands a 2-meter drop onto concrete, is water resistant (IP67) and is fully operational up to 500°F (3 minutes).
