Flir Systems has introduced the Flir A6700sc – a compact thermal imaging camera designed for industrial R&D applications that need high image quality, sensitivity and a high frame rate.

The A6700sc incorporates a cooled indium antimonide (InSb) detector that operates in the 3-5µm waveband. A broadband version operating on the 1-5µm waveband is available. Both versions produce crisp thermal images with a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and achieve a high thermal sensitivity of greater than 20mK. In addition, precise camera synchronisation and triggering makes the cameras ideal for high-speed, high sensitivity applications.

Working in snapshot mode, the Flir A6700sc is able to register all pixels from a thermal event simultaneously. This is particularly important when monitoring fast moving objects where a standard thermal imaging camera would suffer from image blur. The camera supports image frame rates up to 480 frames per second when operating in windowing mode.

Using a standard GigE Vision interface to transmit both commands and full dynamic range digital video, the Flir A6700sc is a true plug and play thermal imaging camera. Custom cold filtering options for specific spectral detection and measurement are available.
