FLIR X6900sc SLS and x8500sc SLS LWIR cameras New SLS IR Cameras for Higher Speeds & Temperatures

FLIR is proud to introduce the x6900sc SLS and x8500sc SLS LWIR cameras — taking thermography to new levels with fast full-frame rates, 12.6x higher integration speeds, and wider temperature ranges than comparable MWIR cameras. Get a taste of true high speed!
High-speed thermal cameras allow you to freeze motion and record temperature changes as they happen.
Important Factors In Infrared Imaging In Test Range And Tracking Applications
Important Factors In Infrared Imaging In Test Range And Tracking Applications
Ross Overstreet with FLIR kicked off our 2017 SPIE DCS video coverage by speaking with us about the types of features that are important on infrared cameras when used on a test range for rocket launches, missile intercepts, and target scoring applications. Watch the video to learn how metric zoom capabilities, speed, and other factors can impact these studies.
You Cannot Manage What You Cannot Measure: Optical Filter Manufacturing
You Cannot Manage What You Cannot Measure: Optical Filter Manufacturing
Iridian Spectral Technologies has been manufacturing optical filters since 1998. In that time, they’ve learned quite a bit about the significant factors that can impact an optical filter’s performance. Jason Palidwar spent a few minutes with us talking about the 3 key criteria that apply to all of the filters his company manufactures – surface quality, spectral characteristics, and durability and reliability. Watch the video to learn from the experts.
