FLIR Systems has announced the release of a new range of thermal imaging cameras optimised for industrial R&D applications including tyre / brake testing, on and through glass measurements, welding / soldering processes and fast moving process control applications. FLIR A3500sc / A6500sc series thermal imaging cameras incorporate a cooled 3-5 micron MW-IR detector making R&D applications that need better image quality, more sensitivity and a higher frame rate routine. Achieving a high thermal sensitivity of <25 mK, the cameras are able to capture the finest image details and temperature difference information. In addition, precise camera synchronization and triggering makes these cameras ideal for high-speed, high sensitivity applications. Operating in Snapshot mode, the cameras are able to register all pixels from a thermal event simultaneously. This is particularly important when monitoring fast moving objects where a standard IR camera would suffer from image blur. The cameras work seamlessly together with FLIR ResearchIR / ResearchIR Max software enabling intuitive viewing, recording and advanced processing of the infrared data provided by the camera. Using a standard GigE Vision interface to transmit both commands and full dynamic range digital video.
