FLIR Systems has introduced a 100mm USL lens for its FLIR X6500sc thermal imaging cameras. This motorised F/2 lens provides a 5.5 degree horizontal field of view, making it suitable for measuring the temperature of distant targets.
Applications that will benefit from the new addition to the X6500sc lens portfolio include safe, remote temperature measurements of tyres, brake disks, airbag deployment or other fast-moving objects observed from a distance.
Ultrasonic Smart Lens technology (USL) is a unique FLIR technology embedded in every motorised lens available for the X6500sc cameras. USL technology enhances the speed at which the lenses operates, as well as improving positioning accuracy. This enables fast and precise autofocusing.
Also, because FLIR USL lenses use ultrasonic motors, the user can still adjust the focus manually, which is not possible using standard technologies.
