WILSONVILLE, Ore., July 1, 2014 — The GF309 IR camera by Flir Systems is suitable for high-temperature inspection applications in the chemical, petrochemical and utility industries.

The portable device monitors gas-fired furnaces, chemical heaters and coal-fired boilers across the entire surface by measuring flames at a distance. It also performs a range of electrical and mechanical inspection tasks.

The camera measures temperatures from −40 to 1500 °C with a sensitivity of less than 25 mK. It offers a detachable, contoured nickel-coated heat shield, a built-in GPS that automatically documents satellite coordinates, a visual camera, and a lamp for dark environments including the outdoors.


GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
