Motorized 100-millimeter USL lens for thermal imaging cameras introduced by FLIR Systems

CROISSY-BEAUBOURG, France, 25 Feb. 2013. The FLIR Systems Advanced Thermal Solutions (FLIR ATS) segment in Croissy-Beaubourg, France, is introducing a motorized F/2 100-millimeter USL lens for the company's FLIR X6500sc thermal imaging cameras that provides a 5.5 degree horizontal field of view for measuring the temperature of distant targets.

Applications include remote temperature measurements of tires, brake disks, airbag deployment, or other fast moving objects observed from a distance.

Ultrasonic Smart Lens technology (USL) is embedded in the lens to speed lens operation and improve positioning accuracy for fast and precise autofocusing. Users also can adjust the focus manually.

FLIR X6500sc thermal imaging cameras are for scientists and R&D professionals working on demanding applications. The cameras provide high-definition images of 640 by 512 pixels.

Incorporating advanced detector technology, FLIR X6500sc cameras can detect temperature differences smaller than 25 millikelvin (18 millikelvin typically). Using FLIR's proprietary "lock-in" facility it is possible to process temperature differences as small as 1 millikelvin.

A FLIR X6500sc camera can measure temperatures as hot as 3,000 degrees Celsius with an accuracy of plus-or-minus 1 C. For more information contact FLIR Advanced Thermal Solutions online at www.flir.com/thermography.
