FLIR Systems A6260sc camera sets the standard for Short Wavelength Infrared (SWIR) cameras for science and R&D applications by combining high-speed performance with fully customizable features. Incorporating a proprietary high-resolution detector, the A6250sc camera offers improved sensitivity and linearity across the full dynamic range, making it ideal for radiometry and temperature calibrated applications.

The A6260sc is equipped with an indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) detector optimized to the 0.9 – 1.7 µm or 0.6 – 1.7 µm waveband, which produces crisp, 640 x 512-pixel thermal images. The sensor includes three user selectable gain states offering a 75x gain factor, making it an exceptionally flexible tool for imaging both bright objects (laser beam profiling) and low light scenes (night glow imaging).

Adjustable frame rates and synchronized triggering, to external events and devices, on the FLIR A6260sc provides the flexibility to fully customize settings such that you can optimise the camera to almost any SWIR application. The A6260sc also provides a built-in flat field shutter that can be either manually or automatically controlled for spatially-uniform image quality.

When optimized for the 0.9 – 1.7 µm waveband, the A6260sc can be factory- or user-calibrated to measure temperatures above 400°C. Couple this with the ability to see through materials such as glass, and the FLIR A6260sc camera becomes a perfect tool for high-temperature thermal measurement in an oven, furnace, or environmental chamber.

The FLIR A6260sc camera works seamlessly with FLIR ResearchIR Max software, enabling intuitive viewing, recording, and advanced processing of thermal data. The A6260sc is fully compliant with GigE Vision® and GeniCam, making it plug and play with other software programs, such as MathWorks® MATLAB. Use the optional SDK for integration into your own custom software program.

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.
