Flir has launched a new thermal imaging camera, the A15. In common with all the other thermal imaging cameras in this series, it has been designed specifically for machine vision, providing the versatility and plug-and-play compatibility through GigE Vision and GenICam protocols. Power over Ethernet also helps to make this a neat and compact solution.

Measuring 40 x 43 x 106mm, the Flir A15 produces thermal images of 160 x 128 pixels. It is suited to applications that do not require the higher image quality of the A35 or A65 models.  

Image frequency is 60Hz and users can choose the performance that best suits the need; eight-bit steaming of high-contrast non-radiometric data, or 14-bit image streaming that is suitable for a wide range of real-time vision applications.

The A15 captures images in a wide temperature range from -40°C to +550°C. A choice of lenses and accessories enable the camera to be customised for a wide variety of applications.

The camera is supplied as standard with Flir Tools software that allows images to be viewed and analysed easily and includes functions such as time versus temperature plots.
