FLIR K2 Firefighting TIC with MSX® | FLIR Systems


TIC with MSX®

FLIR is on a mission to make high quality thermal imaging cameras standard issue equipment. Not just one TIC for every truck, but for each crew member in it. Without sacrificing capability, ruggedness or reliability, the K2's $1,385 price tag makes that more possible than ever before. But extreme affordability is just one benefit.


MSX® Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging

The K2 uses FLIR's patented MSX technology that embosses key details from the built-in visible camera onto thermal images, providing extra perspective to help you stay oriented and safer while saving others.

Compact and easy to use

FLIR K2's design makes it light and easy to attach to turnouts. A single large button activates the camera even with heavy gloves on. And the brilliant display and intuitive interface help show you the way through dark, smoky conditions immediately, so you can stay focused on the critical job in front of you.

Multiple Firefighting Applications

Fire the K2 up as soon as you arrive to do your 360. See through smoke inside, keep track of others, and lookout for hot gases. Determine where to attack efforts, find victims faster, and scan for hot spots during overhaul.

FLIR K2 Features
