New high-speed, high-resolution thermal scientific cameras

Jan 28 2022

Teledyne FLIR has introduced two new families of their X-Series science cameras, the X858x and X698x, both provide high-speed and high-resolution thermal imaging proficiency for scientific research and engineering in the mid-wave infrared (MWIR) and long-wave infrared (LWIR) spectrums. 

The new cameras provide operators with advanced levels of recording, triggering, and synchronisation.  Operators can adjust the focus remotely, which enhances the quality of thermal data acquisition and saves time and frustration when working in dynamic environments. 

Data can then be seamlessly transferred from the onboard solid-state drive (SSD) to a computer for processing and analysis, performed via the FLIR Research Studio or FLIR Science Camera SDK. This easier experience gives operators instant access to a local copy of the data, providing immediate data review and analysis. These devices also support long-duration recordings, with the only limitation being the size of the on-board, off-the-shelf SSD; this eliminates any necessity for high-speed data recording systems for some operators, thus potentially resulting in time and cost savings from additional hardware and integration. 

The new cameras feature a dedicated trigger input on the rear panel as well as a new Tri-level Sync input, which provides simple access to all recording and synchronisation methods across several different camera units and models. This enables increased flexibility for user-specific recording requirements. When combined with motorised lens support, each camera features an integrated, four-position filter wheel; this can be loaded with neutral density or spectral filters that further enhance recording quality and saves time and frustration, especially if the camera is deployed in a remote location. 

The new cameras also include a cooled thermal camera core with high-definition resolution of 1280x1084 and a 180Hz frame rate, to capture highly refined data imagery. The X698x MWIR and SLS LWIR cameras provide 640x512 thermal resolution with a higher than 1kHz frame rate to facilitate stop motion high-speed events, whether at the test range or in the laboratory
