Providing high-definition images of 1280 x 1024 pixels, the FLIR SC8400 and SC6500 thermal imaging cameras have been announced by the imaging specialist.
Incorporating detector technology able to detect temperature differences smaller than 25mK (18mK typically), FLIR's proprietary 'lock-in' facility means tiny temperature differences as small as 1mK can be made clearly visible. A FLIR SC8400 or SC6500 camera can measure temperatures up to 3,000ºC with an accuracy of +/- 1ºC or +/- 1 per cent. FLIR SC8400 cameras offer an adjustable frame rate of up to 100 Hz full frame. FLIR SC6500 cameras have an adjustable frame rate of up to 125Hz full frame. Both FLIR SC8400 and SC6500 cameras can deliver images up to a speed of 3,000 Hz. Windowing allows a subset of the total image to be selectively read out with adjustable window size. The sub-sample windows can be arbitrarily chosen and are easily defined.
