Apr 2007FLIR Systems Inc.
BOSTON, April 10, 2007 -- Infrared camera maker Flir Systems has released its latest product in infrared technology for the scientific community, the ThermoVision SC8000 MWIR (medium-wavelength infrared) camera. Generating over 1 million pixels in crisp, high resolution quality for a single thermal image, the SC8000 boasts Flir’s unparalleled 1024 x 1024 InSb (indium antimonide) focal plane array (FPA) for true megapixel image resolution without dithering or stitching.
The SC8000, which offers a high-performance 16-channel readout, fast frame rates, and multiple camera presets, also features Gigabit Ethernet, Camera Link Full, and USB interfaces for maximum flexibility and performance.
It includes a high-performance 16-channel readout that provides digital data at 205 MP/s. This advanced readout function offers multiple triggering modes, integration time, and window sizes to meet the most demanding application requirements, the company said.
The SC8000 produces full-window 1024 x 1024 14-bit data at 132 fps. The camera’s FPA also supports windowing, which allows for even faster frame rates. By reducing the window size, it offers frame rates of 309 fps at 640 x 512, 751 fsp at 320 x 256, and 909 fsp at 160 x 120. The camera control interface enables the user to adjust the output frame rate from .0015 Hz to full frame.
In addition, the camera supports up to four active preset operating modes, each with adjustable integration time, frame rate, window location and window size. The presets can be used individually or in a continuous cyclic mode for predetermined sequencing and superframing. The SC8000’s built-in IRIG-B timing provides onboard deterministic time stamping of each frame of data as well as advanced IRIG-B options.
It is compatible with Flir’s ThermaCAM RTools software for data acquisition, analysis and reporting. In addition, the SC8000 has an optional software development kit for custom programming.
