FLIR Systems has introduced version 4.2 of its ResearchIR thermal-imaging software. According to the company, ResearchIR 4.2 provides researchers and scientists with a powerful tool for viewing, acquiring, analysing and sharing the thermal data captured with FLIR’s scientific and R&D cameras. 

ResearchIR Max version 4.2 gives users direct access to their MATLAB scripts within ResearchIR for the first time. This will allow users to access their customised MatLab scripts directly in ResearchIR for specially tailored image analysis and processing tasks. Many useful MatLab functions can now be directly accessed from within ResearchIR.

ResearchIR 4.2 software also provides FLIR scientific and R&D thermal camera users with UltraMax file support. UltraMax is a proprietary image enhancement technology available on FLIR’s Tsc series thermal-imaging cameras. It captures a series of thermal images and combines the data into one new image using ResearchIR 4.20 software. The result is a quadrupling of thermal-imaging pixels, including full radiometric measurement data. With this facility, images that are captured with a 640 x 480-resolution thermal-imaging camera can now be transformed into an ultra-sharp 1,280 x 960-resolution image using FLIR ResearchIR. With version 4.2, ResearchIR can be activated either with a USB key or directly online.

In addition to these new features, FLIR ResearchIR already includes a number of features for detailed thermal analysis, including: multiple analysis tools with user-defined settings for detailed data examination; flexible measurement modes; chart, graph and plot reporting; and statistical tables, allowing users to view detailed image quantitative data for the image analysis tools.

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.
