Thermal imaging camera with cooled InSb detector

FLIR’s thermal imaging cameras are used for capturing and recording thermal distribution and thermal variations in real-time, allowing engineers and researchers to see and accurately measure heat patterns, dissipation, leakage, and other temperature factors in equipment, products and processes.

FLIR Systems launches FLIRA6700sc. Compact, thermal imaging camera with cooled InSb detector at an extremely affordable price.

High frame rates, high sensitivity

The FLIR A6700sc is ideal for industrial R&D. For those applications that need better image quality, more sensitivity and a higher frame rate than what can be obtained from a thermal imaging camera with an uncooled detector. FLIR A6700sc incorporates a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector that operates in the 3- to 5-micron waveband. A broadband version operating on the 1- to 5 micron waveband is available. Both versions produce crisp thermal images of 640 x 512. Achieving a high thermal sensitivity of <20 mK, FLIR A6700sc is able to capture the finest image details and temperature difference information. In addition, precise camera synchronization 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 FLIR A6700sc is a true “plug and play” thermal imaging camera. Custom cold filtering options for specific spectral detection and measurement are available.

About thermal imaging : Thermal imaging is the use of cameras constructed with specialty sensors that “see” thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible to the human eye because its wavelength is too long to be detected. It’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Thermal imaging cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation.
