The FLIR SC7000 Series is specifically designed for academic and industrial research applications that require a flexible thermal imaging camera with high sensitivity, accuracy, spatial resolution, and speed at an affordable cost.

Designed to address any application in single and multispectral analysis, FLIR SC7000 Series cameras offer researchers a choice between mid-infrared Indium Antimonide (InSb) as well as mid-infrared and longwave infrared Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) detectors. In addition the FLIR SC7000 series comes standard with a removable, motorized 4 position filter wheel enabling high performance imaging of events in a select part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

The SC7000 series can produce high quality infrared imagery in 640 x 512 or 325 x 256 pixel formats with high sensitivity and noise levels as low as 20 mK. Windowing allows a subset of the total acquired image to be selected with user adjustable window size at frame rate speeds of up to 62,000 Hz. Camera integration time on the SC7000 Series is adjustable in nanosecond increments. This smart external triggering feature allows synchronization of the image capture to the most fleeting events.

Benefiting from FLIR’s proprietary Hypercal technology, SC7000 series cameras are able to ensure the most accurate temperature measurement with the highest sensitivity. Simply set the desired lower and upper temperature limits and the camera will automatically adjust to the appropriate integration (exposure) time.

Leveraging FLIR unique Superframing technique enables SC7000 Series camera users to sequentially acquire thermal data from up to four user-defined temperature ranges, and then merges those streams into a single real-time video that spans all four temperature ranges, effectively extending dynamic range from 14-bit to 16-bit.

CNUC is a proprietary FLIR calibration process that provides unmatched high quality imagery and measurement stability on SC7000 Series thermal imaging cameras. CNUC allows flexible integration time adjustments without the need to perform non-uniformity corrections. CNUC calibration also produces accurate measurement stability regardless of camera exposure to environment variations.

The FLIR SC7000 Series thermal imaging camera works seamlessly together with FLIR ResearchIR Max software enabling intuitive viewing, recording and advanced processing of the thermal data provided by the camera.

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.
