Flir C3 MSX focal distance
« on: June 19, 2018, 05:21:41 am »
Hi team, I recentely bought a Flir C3 to substitute my old E5, I would like to have more portability.
I've bought but I did not payed attention on the MSX focal distance, i've looked judt to the thermal distance, that is from 15cm to infinity.
So my maim usage for the C3 is electronical analisys, as the resolution is poor the the MSX is very helpfully and an ideal focal distance for the MSX would be 15cm.
As you know the minimal focal distance for the MSX  is 1meter, here is my question: That is possible to Hack the MSX and have less focal distance?

Thank you all.

I don't think so. But how much did you pay for the device?

Going from a 320x240 E5 to an 80x60 C3 is quite a huge downgrade, especially for electronics.
A 15cm MSX distance is possible, but it would be very ugly and wouldn't line up everywhere.

Yes I know that, is a huge downgrade, but in this special case I need to carrying it in my pocket to come in some companies and it was impossible to do with my E5.
I usually use to analyze power parts os the PCB, and resolotion is not so necessary, becasue the componentes are not so small but the MSX helps a lot to locate the componets om PCB.
If is possible to reduce the MSX focal distabce, please let me know how to do? I donĀ“t care if the menu show 1meter but in really the focal distance is 15cm.

Thank you.!

I think that the CAT S60 is a better product then the C2 and C3. The only thing you miss out is the Standart FLIR Firmware that can be hacked to a point.
