FLIR Systems has partnered with MathWorks® to offer MATLAB software solutions for its R&D/Science grade thermal camera users.

As a result of this cooperation – FLIR R&D/Science grade thermal cameras now integrate seamlessly into MATLAB. The FLIR cameras are fully GigE Vision and GeniCam compliant, which makes controlling them remotely and streaming fully temperature-calibrated thermal images into MATLAB very straightforward. There is no need for translation of vendor specific software development kits. Instead, the industry-standard interface allows you to quickly set up to stream high sensitivity thermal data from the FLIR camera directly into MATLAB, so you can focus on developing your application.

There are now many ways to integrate FLIR’s thermal cameras with the powerful analytics of MATLAB software solutions.

Through a series of new tech notes and videos, you can quickly learn how to stream data from your FLIR thermal cameras directly into MATLAB, how to import MATLAB scripts into ResearchIR software, and how to open FLIR ResearchIR movie files directly in MATLAB for further analysis and data processing. FLIR has also developed sample programs to help you better understand how to leverage the power of FLIR thermal cameras with MATLAB’s advanced programming environment.

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.
