    According to the company, the FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS233 has a suggested retail price of $2,199. This unit is currently shipping and available for sale. The other two units, the FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS533 and the FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS733, are expected to ship in the fourth quarter of 2017.
