PORTLAND, Ore., 2 Nov. 2009.FLIR Systems announced an online infrared (IR) camera and lens selection tool, which enables users to compare as many as three camera models with different lens configurations and camera input variables, such as distance to target, target size, integration (exposure) time, and image sub-window size.

The calculator returns the resulting output variables, including horizontal and vertical fields of view, number of focal plane array pixels on target, spot size linear dimensions, and camera frame rates.

It aids user in selecting a camera and lens combination that has the appropriate speed and field of view (FoV) to capture the target object. However, the math to determine frame rate and FoV for a given camera, lens, and target can be tedious. The online camera calculator shortens the time it takes for this task, FLIR officials say. The calculator is available at www.flir.com/thg/calculator.
