Flir Systems has launched the Flir Orion SC7000 system, an infrared multispectral imager capable of producing IR sub-band images at video rate within the SWIR, MWIR or LWIR regions.

The system uses focal plane array (FPA) detector technology along with real-time, large dynamic range electronic modules to deliver high performance.

Infrared radiation from the scene under investigation is collected through a front lens, designed to offer minimal aberration across the full IR wavelength range.

A rotating filter wheel is inserted between the lens and the focal plane allowing instantaneous imaging of sub-spectral bands.

The FPA detector is capable of capturing up to 400 frames per second, each high-quality image being captured in snapshot mode.

The Flir Orion SC7000 series can also be used as a normal IR camera at full speed by removing or stopping the filter wheel.

The compact size of the camera allows implementation of the Flir Orion SC7000 into small spaces.

The Flir Orion SC7000 is available with a range of detectors, enabling it to address any application in single and multispectral analysis.

Each of them has a programmable frame rate and integration time.

External triggering allows synchronisation of the image capture to the most fleeting events.

Three external analogue signals are synchronously acquired with the image allowing embedding external sensor measurements.

The Flir Orion SC7000 series can be easily connected to a laptop computer through its plug-and-play Camlink or GigE interfaces.

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.
