FLIR Systems announces the FLIR A400 and A700 Science Kits for researchers, engineers, and systems testers. These smart camera systems can produce accurate, consistent thermal data for electronics testing, product development, failure analysis, and a range of scientific research needs. Offered as Standard or Professional Science Kits, the A400/A700 thermal camera solutions feature the simplified connections and robust measurement tools needed to enable faster, more informed decisions, and enhance understanding of the research target.

FLIR designed the A400 and A700 Science Kits to provide advanced image streaming capabilities as well as the tools needed to find potential points of failure during product development, measure heat build-up during electronics testing, or record fast temperature shifts in thermal research.

The 24-degree lens with Macro Mode included in the Standard A400/A700 Science Kits provide the field of view flexibility required by most research and development applications. The Professional kit further expands this capability by adding a 2X Macro lens, allowing research professionals to get the most possible thermal imaging pixels on the test article and ensuring more accurate temperature measurements. The kits also provide the ability for thermal images with temperature data to be streamed with a built in Wi-Fi option, and a set-up to connect and run remotely through FLIR Research Studio.

“With options for both wired and Wi-Fi connections, these new Science Kits for the FLIR A400 and A700 thermal cameras help researchers start collecting and sharing meaningful data with limited ramp-up time,” said Rickard Lindvall, General Manager, Solutions Business at FLIR. “Simplifying this kind of data collection allows researchers to focus on the analysis needed to support key decisions and move projects forward quickly.”

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.
