Thermal Imaging Cameras
FLIR Systems, Inc., Advanced Thermal Solutions Div.
CROISSY-BEAUBOURG, France, Nov. 29, 2012 — FLIR Advanced Thermal Solutions has launched the SC650 and SC450, portable thermal imaging cameras for scientific R&D.
Delivering high sensitivity, they are supplied with ResearchIR software that enables high-speed recording and thermal pattern analysis.
Using a maintenance-free uncooled vanadium-oxide microbolometer detector, the cameras generate crisp and clear 640 × 480-pixel images that are easy to interpret, resulting in accurate results. The SC650 allows the user to see temperature differences as small as 0.03 °C at 30 °C with accuracy of ±1 ºC, or ±1% of reading. Researchers who do not need this high image quality can choose the SC450 camera, which generates 320 × 240-pixel thermal images. The SC650 measures temperature up to 2000 °C and the SC450, up to 1500 °C. Both are ergonomically designed and easy to use. They include an LCD touch screen that allows the user to see small details and temperature differences.
Features include instant reporting on camera, touch-screen image sketching and multispectral dynamic thermal imaging, enabling thermal anomalies to be more easily detected and analyzed.
Depending upon the model, other features include continuous autofocus, 16-bit streaming IR video, picture-in-picture viewing of overlaid thermal and visual images, and a Wi-Fi interface for wireless transmission of images to a PC, tablet PC or smartphone.
