Flir Systems has introduced an enhanced version of its ResearchIR thermal measurement, recording and analysis software.
Designed for research and development and advanced scientific applications, the software provides a comprehensive set of easy-to-use acquisition, diagnostics, and data sharing tools. In addition the software includes customisable, saveable workspaces that allow users to simply arrange how images, data, charts and plots are displayed.
ResearchIR connects directly to scientific Flir thermal imaging cameras via USB, FireWire, Gigabit Ethernet, and Camera Link enabling fast viewing of thermal snapshots and movie files. The software supports a range of options including pre- and post-trigger recording based on user configured start/stop times, scene temperature thresholds, frame rate, and more.
As well as performing real-time image analysis with an extensive set of measurement modes, ResearchIR also features zoom and pan capabilities enabling closer examinations. Software options for preset sequencing and superframing allows researchers to more effectively analyse scenes with large temperature differences or targets with rapid thermal dynamics. An array of enhanced charting and graphing capabilities permits users to create line profiles and temporal plots for all of the measurement tools.
ResearchIR can export image and plot data graphically as a Bitmap, CSV, or Matlab file for reporting or further analysis in other software programs. In addition thermal movies can be output as standard AVI files with the option to display overlays.
