Get a fuller picture with Flir’s High Definition thermal cameras


Flir Systems has released the SC8400 and SC6500 series thermal imaging cameras, designed to provide excellent measurement performance together with advanced connectivity. Equipped with a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector, the cameras produce HD, 1,280 x 1,024 pixel thermal images. This is four times more thermal data than standard 640 x 512 pixel images, enabling fine details to be resolved. In terms of sensitivity, a SC8400 or SC6500 series camera can detect temperature differences smaller than 25mK (18mK typically). Temperature differences as small as 1mK can be made visible using Flir’s proprietary lock-in facility. The cameras can measure temperatures up to 3,000ºC with an accuracy of +/- 1ºC or +/- 1 per cent. The SC8400 series offers an adjustable frame rate of up to 100Hz full frame, while the SC6500 series provides up to 125Hz full frame. Both series cameras can deliver images at speeds up to 3,000Hz. The cameras integrate


advanced high performance optical design with lens recognition and automatic measurement adjustments. A temperature probe in the lens assembly provides leading-edge measurement accuracy and drift compensation. A choice of lenses is available for use on all cameras. Each camera offers an excellent range of connectivity options. These include Gigabit Ethernet for simple connectivity, Camera Link medium for full bandwidth data acquisition, DVI-output compatible with 1080p, and Wi-Fi to enable image transfer and control the camera wirelessly via a smart phone (iPhone) or a tablet PC


(iPad). In addition, standard BNC connectors are included for features such as detector synchronisation,


acquisition triggering, analogue lock-in input and composite video output.


The LCD touch screen can be removed from the camera when space is at a premium allowing the camera to be installed in a hard to reach position. An integral LED light on the camera ensures clear visual images even in dark environments. The visual image can be used as a reference against the thermal image. www.flir.com


Find your


opponents at distances of 1.5km


Headwall Photonics has released its Hyperspec Recon, providing discrete target identification and hyperspectral scene rendering for reconnaissance applications at distances of 1.5km.


Ruggedised, portable, and field-deployable,


Hyperspec Recon rapidly and accurately scans the field of view utilising either the customised wide or narrow field of view optics. It can also be deployed in unattended stationary situations, making this sensor exceptionally flexible across a wide range of environments.


Other advantages of Hyperspec Recon include its optical sensing capabilities, simple push-button operation and the ability to offer flexible mission objectives and target sets that are quickly downloaded to the sensor. www.headwallphotonics.com
