Thermal Imaging for Academic Research

FLIR Systems announces that it will be showing its latest thermal imaging solutions for academic research at Photonex 2015* on 14th and 15th October 2015.

On display on Stand E03 will be the FLIR X6580sc - an ultra-fast frame-rate camera much favoured by leading academic research groups looking to capture data from the most fleeting of thermal events. This high performance camera features a 640 × 512 digital InSb detector with spectral sensitivity from 1.5 to 5.5 µm and an f/3 aperture. It provides top quality images up to 355 Hz in full frame and up to 4011 Hz in a 64 × 8 sub windowing mode. Features on the X6580sc include unmatched thermal sensitivity, snapshot imagery, a motorised spectral filter wheel and a detachable touchscreen LCD. The camera connects to the company’s ResearchIR Max R&D software to provide comprehensive thermal imaging data acquisition, analysis and reporting capabilities. The X6580sc can be temperature-calibrated up to 300 °C, or up to 3000 °C with spectral and/or neutral density filters, and it provides measurement accuracy of ±1 °C for standard configurations.

Of growing interest to many academic research groups is to make non-contact thermal measurements on microscopic target areas. A thermal imaging camera combined with a microscope becomes a thermal imaging microscope, capable of accurate temperature measurement on targets as small as 3 microns. FLIR Systems offers a range of thermal imaging microscopy solutions from its entry level A325sc camera to its state-of-the-art X8400sc High Definition (HD) camera which will be on display at Photonex 2015.

With a highly sensitive InSb detector, mega pixel resolution, advanced functionality, and cutting edge design, the FLIR X8400sc high definition camera sets a high performance benchmark for thermal imaging research and development.  Providing high-definition images of 1280 x 1024 pixels - FLIR X8400sc thermal imaging cameras will reveal the faintest of thermal anomalies and allow you to see the smallest of details. Incorporating advanced detector technology - FLIR SC8400 cameras can detect temperature differences smaller than 25mK (18mK typically). Benefiting from FLIR’s proprietary “lock-in” facility, temperature differences as small as 1mK can be made clearly visible. Designed to unlock the secrets of almost any application, a FLIR X8400sc camera can measure temperatures up to 3,000º C with an accuracy of /- 1ºC or /- 1% or faint thermal emissions from areas as small as 3 x3 microns.
