The FLIR A6750sc SLS thermal imaging camera range from FLIR Systems comes standard with Lock-In, Transient, and Pulse capabilities enabling you to undertake meticulous Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) or stress mapping, resolving temperature differences as low as 1 mK.

NDT is widely used to evaluate the properties of a material, component, or system without causing damage. Thermal Imaging cameras can detect internal defects through target excitation and the observation of thermal differences on a target’s surface. Thermal imaging is a valuable tool for detecting defects and points of failure in composites, solar cells, bridges, and electronics. It is also a great tool for thermal mapping of stress when performing materials testing.

The FLIR A6750sc SLS incorporates a cooled Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detector that operates in the 7.5 to 10.5 µm waveband, to produce crisp, 640 x 512-pixel thermal imagery. These high-performance thermal cameras detect temperature differences smaller than 20mK (18mK typically). With FLIR Systems proprietary “lock-in” process temperature differences as small as 1mK will become clearly visible.

The FLIR A6750sc SLS is a true plug-and-play thermal imaging camera, with a standard GigE Vision® interface to transmit full dynamic range digital video and GenICam for camera control. Additional interfaces include a BNC analog video output. The Gigabit Ethernet and analog video are simultaneously active yet independently controlled allowing greater flexibility for recording and display purposes. Working seamlessly with FLIR ResearchIR Max software enables intuitive viewing, recording and advanced processing of the thermal data provided by the camera. A Software Developers Kit (SDK) is optionally available. Control the A6750sc SLS and capture data directly into MathWorks® MATLAB software for custom image analysis and enhancement.

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.
