FLIR Systems has announced the X6570sc high-speed infrared camera, the latest in FLIR’s X6000sc series of cameras for engineers, researchers, and scientists. This longwave infrared (LWIR) high-performance camera offers the accuracy and microsecond-precision of FLIR’s mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) detector paired with an intuitive user experience, so researchers can set up quickly and get working faster.

FLIR engineered the X6570sc to provide researchers with measurement accuracy, advanced processing algorithms, and connectivity. The X6570sc camera records 640 x 512 full-frame video at 234Hz (up to 14,550Hz with windowing) with the rapid integration times needed to analyse high-speed processes or monitor fast temperature spikes. The camera is sensitive enough to distinguish temperature differences down to 20mK, and offers connection options, including Camera Link Medium and BNC for sync and trigger with external equipment.

An important concern for many research labs is the difficulty of sharing equipment across users, departments, and locations. The X6570sc offers saved user configurations for efficient transfer between test teams. It’s also free from import restrictions, so users in multiple departments or cross-border locations can fully focus on their research instead of worrying about export/usage restrictions.

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.
