FLIR Systems will be showing its latest thermal-imaging solutions for academic research at Photonex 2015 on 14–15 October 2015. 

On display on Stand E03 will be the FLIR X6580sc — an ultra-fast-frame-rate camera suitable for academic research groups looking to capture data from the most fleeting of thermal events. This high-performance camera features a 640 x 512 digital InSb detector with spectral sensitivity from 1.5–5.5um and an f/3 aperture. It provides high-quality images up to 355Hz in full frame and up to 4,011Hz in a 64 x 8 sub-windowing mode.

The camera connects to the company’s ResearchIR Max R&D software to provide comprehensive thermal-imaging data acquisition, analysis and reporting capabilities. The X6580sc can be temperature calibrated up to 300°C, or up to 3,000°C with spectral and/or neutral density filters.

FLIR will also showcase thermal-imaging microscopy solutions ranging from the entry-level A325sc camera to the X8400sc high-definition (HD) camera. Providing high-definition images of 1,280 x 1,024 pixels, the X8400sc series thermal-imaging camera will reveal the faintest of thermal anomalies and allow the user to see the smallest of details. 

Meanwhile, the FLIR SC8400 camera can detect temperature differences smaller than 25mK (18mK typically). Temperature differences as small as 1mK can be made clearly visible. An X8400sc camera can measure temperatures up to 3,000ºC with an accuracy of ±1ºC or ±1 per cent or faint thermal emissions from areas as small as 3 x 3 microns.

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.
