New FLIR SC6800 Now Fastest Mid-Wave IR Science Camera Available

High speed, high resolution thermal imaging, plus revolutionary interface make SC6800 ideal for nearly any scientific or research application.

FLIR Systems, Inc. has released its new SC6800 infrared camera as a solution for researchers and scientists who require ultra-fast frame rate acquisition of extreme dynamic thermal events.

According to Dave Bursell, Director of FLIR’s Science Segment, “What makes the SC6800 so unique is its high frame rate capabilities. It can capture highly sensitive infrared imagery at up to 565 frames per second in full 640 by 512 pixel resolution, and can be thermographically and radiometrically calibrated so you can acquire high speed data along with the imagery for more detailed quantitative analysis.”

Interface flexibility is also unique to the SC6800. Multiple simultaneous analog and digital outputs include component video, HD-SDI, Camera Link Full, or CoaxPress. FLIR is the first to offer CoaxPress on an IR camera, says Bursell, which allows transmission of high speed, high resolution data over a standard coax cable up to 120 meters long.

Other valuable features include: advanced triggering options through external BNC input, IRIG time-stamping, interchangeable optional lenses (including close-up and telephoto), and FLIR Research IR softwarefor data acquisition, analysis, and reporting.

Cameras are available now through FLIR Advanced Thermal Imaging Solutions.
