FLIR Introduces New Compact Thermal Imaging Test Kits For Research, Development, And Machine Vision Applications


Affordability, Small Form Factor of AX5sc Thermal Cameras Fulfills Market Need

FLIR Systems, Inc. introduces its new FLIR A5sc, A15sc, and A35sc longwave infrared thermal imaging camera kits. Designed specifically for thermal bench top testing applications and easy deployment in tight machine vision locations, AX5sc cameras are available in a variety of pixel resolutions from 80×64 and 160×128 up to 320×256, and can meet the spatial resolution requirements of most applications.

AX5sc thermal imaging cameras provide technicians, researchers and manufacturers with a non-destructive, non-contact T&M tool that helps eliminate temperature measurement guesswork, both during the product development stage and on the production line. With the ability to see heat patterns and extract temperature values via live and recorded imagery, infrared technology like FLIR’s AX5sc Kit is quickly replacing thermocouples and spot radiometers.

Affordably priced, AX5sc bench top test kits include a compact goose-neck stand for easy aiming. Cameras are light and very compact measuring 4.2” x 1.6” x 1.7”. Like all FLIR A-Series cameras, standard features include plug-and-play compatibility through GiGE Vision and GenICam protocols and 60 Hz frame rate for streaming images, allowing camera control and image capture in real time. The Kit also comes with the newest FLIR Tools+ software for easy image analysis, recording and report generation. For more information, visit
