FLIR Announces New Features for Firm’s Chemical Detector

FLIR Systems has unveiled new updates designed to boost the drug enforcement performance of its chemical detectors.

The portable G510 gas chromatograph mass spectrometer, or GC-MS, detector now features access to a built-in drug library and quick-search for a variety of hazardous substances, helping response teams detect chemicals on-site, the company said Thursday.

In addition, the detector allows users to select pre-installed method settings for sample analysis via on-screen prompts. It will automatically analyze samples to determine matches from across existing libraries.

Flir now also offers a vehicle-mount option accessory that equips the G510 detector for road and off-road use.

“These upgrades are all about simplifying the job for responders,” said Dennis Barket, vice president and general manager at FLIR’s detection division.
