WILSONVILLE, Ore., 11 May 2015. FLIR Systems in Wilsonville, Ore., is introducing three science-grade thermal cameras -- the A6200sc NIR, A8300sc HD MWIR, and A6700sc LWIR -- for demanding science and research applications including electronics development, university research, and non-destructive testing.

These cooled electro-optical cameras deliver image quality, standardized interfaces, and MATLAB integration. The export of the A6200sc NIR, A8300sc HD MWIR, and A6700sc LWIR cameras from the USA is controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and requires an export license from the U.S. Department of State.

The A6200sc, A8300sc and A6700sc cameras each use a standard Gigabit Ethernet vision interface to transmit digital video, and GenICam for camera control. Users can stream temperature-calibrated data over Gigabit Ethernet to a PC for live image viewing and recording.

Incorporating FLIR's ResearchIR version 4.20 software the cameras enable researchers and scientists to monitor, acquire, analyze, and share captured thermal data. The release of ResearchIR Max version 4.20 gives users access to their MATLAB scripts within ResearchIR for the first time.

The A6200sc has a 640-by-512 resolution indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) detector that produces near infrared (NIR) images. The A8300sc medium-wave infrared MWIR camera has a cooled 1280-by-720 resolution indium antimonide (InSb) detector. The A6700sc cooled strained layer superlattice (SLS) detector produces 640-by-512 resolution long-wave infrared thermal imagery.
