Flir Systems Inc.’s SC8400/SC6500 Series thermal imaging cameras provide good thermal measurement performance and advanced connectivity.

Equipped with a cooled InSb detector that produces crisp 1280 × 1024-pixel thermal images, the cameras perform high-definition (HD) imaging that reveals the smallest details and offers four times more thermal data than a standard 640 × 512-pixel image. They can detect temperature differences smaller than 25 mK, with 18 mK typical. Using a proprietary lock-in facility, process temperature differences as small as 1 mK can be made clearly visible. The cameras can measure temperatures up to 3000 ºC with an accuracy of ±1ºC or ±1%.

They offer an adjustable rate of up to 125 full frames and deliver images at a speed of up to 3000 Hz. Windowing allows a subset of the total image to be selectively read out with adjustable window size. The subsample windows can be arbitrarily chosen and are easily defined. The cameras integrate an advanced optical design with lens recognition and automatic measurement adjustments. A temperature probe in the lens assembly provides measurement accuracy and drift compensation. A choice of lenses is available.

The thermal imaging cameras offer a variety of connectivity options, including Gigabit Ethernet for simple connectivity, Camera Link medium for full bandwidth data acquisition, and DVI-output compatible with 1080p and Wi-Fi to enable image transfer and control the camera wirelessly via a smart phone (iPhone) or a tablet PC (iPad). Standard BNC connectors are included for often-used features such as detector synchronization, acquisition triggering, analog lock-in input and composite video output. Commonly used configurations can be saved to the micro SD-card, enabling use of the cameras by multiple operators without requiring expertise in reconfiguring.

To provide the flexibility often demanded by R&D applications, the cameras can be adjusted to meet almost any need. The LCD touch screen can be removed when space is at a premium, allowing the camera to be installed in a hard-to-reach position and controlled remotely. An integral LED ensures clear visual images, even in dark environments, and the visual image can be used as a reference against the thermal image.
