FLIR thermal cameras for optical gas detection monitor gas pipelines from safe distances
WILSONVILLE, Ore., 1 Oct. 2014. FLIR Systems Inc. in Wilsonville, Ore., is introducing the FLIR G300a, G300pt, and A6604 thermal cameras for optical gas detection for monitoring gas pipelines and installations from safe distances.
Each model contains a cooled indium antimonide (InSb) detector, which enhances the sensitivity of each camera to detect small gas emissions. The G300a and G300pt cameras have a resolution of 320 by 240 pixels, while the A6604 has a resolution of 640 by 512 pixels. Each camera can be controlled via Ethernet, or integrated into any TCP/IP network. They also are GEV/Genicam-compatible.
The G300a and A6604 cameras require an additional housing while the G300pt comes with its own housing mounted on a pan/tilt mechanism. The housing can rotate the camera 360-degree continuously and tilt 90 degrees.
The G300pt is equipped with a long range daylight/low light camera, and the video output of the thermal and daylight/low light cameras are simultaneously available. Users can monitor electrical substations or other equipment that is in the same field-of-view.
The three FLIR cameras detect benzene, ethanol, ethylbenzene, heptane, hexane, isoprene, methanol, MEK, MIBK, octane, pentane, 1-pentene, toluene, xylene, butane, ethane, methane, propane, ethylene and propylene.
