FLIR MR265 Moisture Meter and Thermal Imager
21 July 2021
Designed to visually scan large areas for moisture issues, air leaks, electrical problems, and more, the FLIR MR265 Moisture Meter and Thermal Imager with MSX empowers professionals to quickly identify and locate water leaks and other moisture issues at the source.
This dual thermal imager and measurement tool combines a 160 × 120 resolution Lepton® thermal camera, visual camera, laser pointer, and both pin and pinless moisture detection for faster leak identification and measurement, plus offers easy reporting through the FLIR Thermal Studio Suite™.
Home inspectors, contractors, and other professionals who want to consolidate tools without jeopardizing function will appreciate the multiple ways to read and report moisture levels with the MR265, as well as identify temperature anomalies that could denote issues from leaking pipes, to overheating circuits, to inefficient windows and doors.
When compared to traditional non-thermal imaging moisture meters, inspection time is significantly decreased with the MR265. Its ability to emboss edge detail from a two-megapixel visible camera onto the thermal image, via MSX, provides the user significantly more detail and context on screen and in saved images to identify issues quickly and efficiently.
The pinless option can provide qualitative measurements through an integrated sensor for situations where a more invasive method either isn’t possible or would cause unwanted damage.
Conversely, pin measurements produce quantifiable measurements using a resistive sensor that can pierce cavities and other suspected moisture spots within walls, ceilings, and floors. When used with the thermal imager, operators can scan an entire interior wall to narrow down the moisture location, use the integrated sensor to pinpoint the source of water intrusion, and then measure the exact amount of moisture without requiring unnecessary demolition. Functionality can be further expanded through six compatible accessory probes and sensors available for the MR265.
Streamlined reporting capabilities available through FLIR Thermal Studio Suite can also decrease diagnostic and reporting time. Users can directly upload thermal JPEGs with the included USB cable to either FLIR Thermal Studio or to a compatible reporting solution.
