Caterpillar CAT S60 Thermal Imaging Smartphone review

CAT’s S60 Smart Phone with integrated FLIR Thermal Imaging Camera is a first of its kind. This phone is perfect if you want a small portable thermal imaging camera but do not what to have to carry around additional pieces of equipment.

The S60 is waterproof to 5 meters for 60 minutes making it very durable and suitable to taking to the construction site every day without fear of damage. Images and video can even be taken underwater if needed. The S60 is even rated over the military drop specification of 1.8M.

FLIR is a well-known name in thermal imagers and while the camera does not have all of the high end features found in some of their other models such as the FLIR E8 for initial inspections or to confirm heat leaks this can be a great choice for you. The phone includes a 13 megapixel traditional camera and Gorilla Glass screen further enhancing its durability. You can find further technical details below.
