FLIR Systems X6000sc and X8000sc series thermal imaging cameras with Lock-In, Transient, and Pulse capabilities offer unmatched capabilities to perform advanced inspections such as Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) or stress mapping that resolve temperature differences as low as 1 mK.

NDT is a standard method used to evaluate the properties of a material, component or, system without causing damage. Thermal imaging cameras offer the ability to detect internal defects through target excitation and the observation of thermal differences on a target’s surface. In addition, thermal imaging cameras provide a valuable tool for detecting defects and points of failure in composites, solar cells, bridges, and electronics as well as enabling thermal mapping of stress when performing materials testing.

The FLIR X8000sc/X6000sc Series thermal imaging cameras are designed to provide the best thermal measurement performance. Designed for scientists, engineers and researchers they can provide high resolution thermal images up to 1280 x 1024 pixels (FLIR X8400sc) that will enable you the see the smallest of details and assure excellent measurement accuracy. These advanced thermal cameras detect temperature differences smaller than 25mK (18mK typically). With FLIR Systems proprietary “lock-in” process temperature differences as small as 1mK will become clearly visible. The cameras automatically adjust their temperature range to best fit the thermal scene. Designed to unlock the secrets of almost any application, a FLIR X8400sc camera can measure temperatures up to 3,000º C with an accuracy of +/- 1ºC or +/- 1% or faint thermal emissions from areas as small as 3 x3 microns. FLIR X8000sc and X6000sc Series cameras work seamlessly together with FLIR ResearchIR Max software enabling intuitive viewing, recording and advanced processing of the thermal data provided by the camera. Each camera comes standard with this especially for R&D applications developed software.

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
