For the first time ever, thermal imaging is now available straight from your smartphone with the revolutionary Cat® S60. Equipped with a FLIR™ Lepton camera, this world first technology allows you to bring another level of accuracy and reporting to the way you work. Combined with the rugged credentials synonymous with Cat phones, this innovative technology is the perfect solution for those who want to work smart in tough environments.

Gain the competitive edge and introduce thermal imaging into your life with the the Cat S60 thermal imaging integrated smartphone.


With the Cat® S60 the leaders in heavy machinery meet the leaders in thermal imaging. Combining Caterpillar’s expertise in producing durable equipment with the FLIR™ Lepton camera, this innovative rugged mobile device is ideal for those working in tough conditions.

An inexpensive solution to using thermal imaging in the workplace that you can constantly access from your pocket, this world first smartphone is a truly revolutionary piece of tech, offering the ability to see changes in heat up to 100ft away and read specific temperatures between 50-75ft. Capture thermal images anywhere and in any situation with the Cat S60.



Exclusive to FLIR™ and the S60, MSX Technology simultaneously takes two photos – one with the thermal camera and a second with the standard lens. It then overlays the images on top of each other to provide a more detailed image so you can trace exactly which heat signature is coming from where.

Furthermore, the phone is equipped with the MyFLIR app, an easy-to-use interface allowing you to shoot stills, footage and timelapse videos in a shareable file format. Apply movable spot meters and various spectrum filters both to live images and retrospectively to thermal images saved in your gallery. You can also pre-set emissivity values and even select custom temperature scales.



From home to the workplace, an integrated thermal imaging smartphone holds endless possibilities. Save time and money by detecting and resolving issues with a structure or machinery before they become a problem. Obtain essential data to begin work on a project sooner or build stronger client relationships with the ability to report back to them with demonstrable results.

Shed some light on your DIY projects, spot overloaded sockets or electrical faults, trace insulation leaks, fix the underfloor heating, look for the dog in the dark… The possibilities are virtually endless with the Cat S60’s integrated thermal imaging camera.


With this new integrated thermal technology come some practical points to bear in mind. Whilst it works in the dark, thermal imaging is not the same as night vision. These cameras rely primarily on enhancing reflected light whereas thermal imaging responds only to the heat signature of an object, making it far less susceptible to problems with contrast in low light.

Thermal imaging cameras, however, cannot pick up heat signatures on some objects like reflective materials or insulated windows, and whilst they can see through obscurants like smoke they can’t see through walls – only changes in temperature caused by objects behind the wall. Additionally, heat signatures left by hands, etc will only be picked up if pressed down firmly for more than a few seconds.
