Longwave infrared high-speed camera for R&D and science

FLIR Systems has released the X6570sc high-speed infrared camera, the latest in its X6000sc series of cameras for engineers, researchers, and scientists. This longwave infrared high performance camera is said to offer the accuracy and precision of FLIR's mercury cadmium telluride detector paired with an intuitive user experience, so researchers can set-up quickly and get working faster.

The X6570sc has been engineered to provide researchers with measurement accuracy, advanced processing algorithms, and connectivity. The X6570sc camera records 640 x 512 full frame video at 234Hz (up to 14,550Hz with windowing) with the rapid integration times needed to analyse high-speed processes or monitor fast temperature spikes. The camera is said to be sensitive enough to distinguish temperature differences down to 20mK, and offers connection options including Camera Link Medium and BNC for sync and trigger with external equipment.

A 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 multiple departments or cross-border locations can fully focus on their research instead of worrying about export/usage restrictions.
