Flir One Pro
By Gary McCreadie
The Flir One Pro is a slick pocket sized thermal camera to be used with your mobile device, Android or iOS. It comes complete with a carrying case and charger. The device takes approximately one hour to completely charge and will give you approximately one hour of test time. It is a very simple tool to set up and use, download and launch the Flir One app, plug the Flir One Pro into your mobile device and you are up and running. It has a test range of -20 to 400 degrees Celsius or -4 to 752 degrees Fahrenheit and is accurate to +/- 5%. The app has three capture modes, still image, video and time lapse and the camera’s operating range is 0 to 35 degrees Celsius or 32 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. The Flir One Pro can be used to test or troubleshoot and give the HVAC technician solid information that they normally would not have. Check compressors, evaporators, condensers, receivers, air flow, air infiltration, motors, breaker panels, disconnect switches etc. See below for some still image examples and demo video.
