CROISSY-BEAUBOURG, France, Feb. 26, 2013 — The X8000sc and X6000sc thermal imaging cameras from Flir Advanced Thermal Solutions contain a four-slot motorized filter wheel with automatic filter recognition and measurement parameter adjustment. The removable filter holders also include an integrated temperature probe for improved measurement accuracy.
Materials that are transparent or opaque to infrared wavelengths present problems in noncontact temperature measurements using a thermal imaging camera. With transparent materials, the camera sees through them and records a temperature that is a combination of the material and what is behind it. When a thermal imaging camera has to see through an opaque material to measure the temperature of an object behind it, signal attenuation and ambient reflections can make accurate temperature reading difficult or impossible. In some applications, an IR filter can be placed in the camera’s optical path to overcome these problems.
With the FLIR X8000sc and X6000sc, the filter wheel enables application-specific filters to be inserted between the lens and the focal plane. Each rotation of the filter position allows for a new spectral response to be measured.
Providing ultrasensitive and accurate measurements, ease of use and advanced connectivity in a compact footprint, the cameras are suitable for use by scientists and R&D professionals. Providing high-definition images of 1280 × 1024 pixels, they reveal faint thermal anomalies and small details. They can detect temperature differences smaller than 25 mK (18 mK, typically) and can measure temperatures up to 3000 °C with an accuracy of ±1 ºC.
