Compact in design, FLIR Systems A8200sc and A8300sc MWIR cameras offer the speed and sensitivity researchers need to capture rapid thermal events and record the most accurate temperature measurements.

Incorporating cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detectors, the cameras produce crisp 1280 x 1280 pixel (A8200sc) or 1280 x 720 pixel (A8300sc) thermal images with very low noise. This allows these sensitive cameras to capture the finest image details making them perfect for electronics inspection, aerial thermal mapping, non-destructive material testing, and industrial R&D applications.

Operating from 3 to 5 microns, these sensitive MWIR cameras can stream crisply detailed, low-noise HD data to a PC for live image viewing and recording. The cameras also provide full user control over integration times, synchronization inputs, and window sizes.

In addition, working in snapshot mode, FLIR A8200sc and A8300sc cameras are able to capture all pixels from a scene simultaneously. This is particularly important when monitoring fast moving objects which an uncooled thermal camera cannot not image without blurring. The camera can also support faster frame rates when operating in windowing mode.

The A8200sc and A8300sc offer true “plug and play” connectivity, with standard GigE Vision® and CoaXpress™ interfaces to transmit full dynamic range digital video, and GenICam for camera control. The HD-SDI video interfaces are simultaneously active yet independently controlled allowing greater flexibility for recording and display purposes.

Both cameras are designed to work seamlessly with FLIR’s powerful, yet easy to use ResearchIR Max software or with third-party software such as MathWorks® MATLAB, for intuitive viewing, recording and advanced processing of the infrared data. A Software Developers Kit is optionally available.

Founded in 1978, FLIR Systems is a world-leading industrial technology company focused on intelligent sensing solutions for defense, industrial and commercial applications. FLIR Systems’ vision is to be “The World’s Sixth Sense, creating technologies to help professionals make more informed decisions that save lives and livelihoods.  For more information, please visit www.flir.com and follow @flir.

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.
