WILSONVILLE, Ore., 23 Jan. 2017. Electro-optics specialist FLIR Systems in Wilsonville, Ore., is introducing the X6570sc high-speed longwave infrared (LWIR)camera for engineers, research use, and scientists.

The high-performance camera offers the accuracy and microsecond-precision of FLIR's mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) detector paired with an intuitive user experience, so researchers can set-up quickly and get working quickly.

FLIR engineered the X6570sc to provide researchers with measurement accuracy, advanced processing algorithms, and connectivity. The as X6570sc camera records 640-by-512 full frame video at 234 Hz (as fast as 14,550 Hz with windowing) with the rapid integration times needed to analyze high-speed processes or monitor fast temperature spikes.

The camera is sensitive enough to distinguish temperature differences down to 20 millikelvin, and offers connection options including Camera Link Medium and BNC for sync and trigger with external equipment.

An important concern for many research labs is the difficulty of sharing equipment across users, departments, and locations. The X6570sc offers saved user configurations for efficient transfer between test teams.

It's also free from import restrictions, so users in different departments or cross-border locations can focus on their research instead of worrying about export/usage restrictions.
