Compact high-definition thermal science cameras
FLIR Systems announced the FLIR A8580 series of entry-level, cooled high-definition thermal science cameras designed for a wide range of industrial, military, science, and product research and development (R&D) applications.
Low-cost optical gas imaging camera for leak detection
FLIR Systems has announced the FLIR GF77a Gas Find IR camera, its first fixed-mount, uncooled, autonomous leak detection camera designed specifically to visualise methane and other industrial gases.
Why infrared thermal imaging devices make sense for electricians
Heat is a byproduct of operating any sized electrical circuit. Most problems in electrical systems display themselves in terms of heat. Electricians must be able to classify a circuit as normal when the load is on or identify when it is abnormal and identify the issues that presents – finding hot spots that need attention. By John H. Waggoner, Senior Instructor, FLIR Infrared Training Center
Pipeline inspection using optical gas imaging
FLIR Systems has published a new application spotlight that highlights the role its Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are playing in detecting gas leaks from oil and gas pipelines. Oil and gas pipelines often stretch long distances, carrying a variety of materials. Sometimes the pipes fail, resulting in liquid leaks or fugitive emissions of gas releasing into the environment.
Strategic investment for gas emissions complete
FLIR Systems and Providence Photonics has announced that FLIR has made a strategic investment in Providence Photonics, developers of advanced software used to quantify invisible gas emissions using FLIR Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras. Providence Photonics specialises in the development and utilisation of advanced technology in the field of optical gas imaging while tackling some of the industry’s most challenging environmental and safety...
Advances in thermal imaging detector technology webinar
FLIR Systems has announced a new free webinar for scientists and engineers interested in the use of thermal imaging cameras for research and development applications. Thermal imaging cameras operating in the traditional mid-wavelength IR (MWIR) spectral region have traditionally dominated the R&D application field.
High definition MWIR cameras capture rapid thermal events
Compact in design, FLIR Systems A8200sc and A8300sc MWIR cameras offer the speed and sensitivity researchers need to capture rapid thermal events and record the most accurate temperature measurements. Incorporating cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detectors, the cameras produce crisp 1280x1280px (A8200sc) or 1280x720px (A8300sc) thermal images with very low noise.
Optical gas imaging camera for hazardous locations
The FLIR GFx320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers unmatched technology for visualising fugitive hydrocarbon leaks at natural gas well sites, off-shore platforms, liquid natural gas terminals, and more. To allow surveyors to work more confidently and safely, the GFx320 is certified to visualise small hydrocarbon leaks with the sensitivity required to meet the US EPA's OOOOa methane rule.
Optical gas imaging for the automotive industry
FLIR Systems has published an article that discusses how the Automotive Industry is adopting Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera technology to improve workplace safety, cost efficiency, equipment monitoring and leak tightness testing. Optical Gas Imaging cameras are a proven technology for visualising gases by utilising the physics of often ‘invisible to the eye’ fugitive gas leaks.
Deep learning-enabled machine vision camera
FLIR Systems has announced the launch of the FLIR Firefly DL, a deep learning, inference-enabled machine vision camera with FLIR Neuro technology. With its small size, low weight, minimal power consumption, and deep learning capabilities, the FLIR Firefly DL camera is well suited for embedding into mobile, desktop, and handheld systems.
Thermal camera streamlines industrial inspections
FLIR Systems has announced the FLIR T860, its latest addition to the high-performance T-Series family. This new thermal camera is the first to feature onboard Inspection Route software, ideal for streamlining inspections of critical assets, including power substation components, distribution lines, manufacturing equipment, or facility electrical and mechanical systems.
Affordable methane detection camera for gas inspection professionals
The GF77 from FLIR Systems is an affordable, handheld methane detection camera that allows inspection professionals to actually see invisible methane leaks and other industrial gases at natural gas power plants, renewable energy production facilities, industrial plants, and other locations along a natural gas supply chain.
Camera sets a new standard for research grade SWIR imaging
Combining high-speed performance with fully customisable features, the FLIR A6260 offers improved sensitivity and linearity across the full dynamic range, making it ideal for radiometry and temperature calibrated applications. The FLIR A6260 records full-frame data at 180 fps and can be synchronised with other instruments enabling precision stop-action recording of high-speed events.
Increased efficiency with infrared thermography
Since the arrival of the personal computer, the electronics market has been subject to a constant, overarching pressure from end-users to miniaturise components while maximising performance. However, meeting these twin demands presents a challenge: how does one accurately test tiny components for both product faults and overall quality control when most of these electronics are too small for conventional diagnostic tools?
Fast high precision thermal testing
FLIR Systems T530 / T540 thermal imaging cameras are designed to offer R&D scientists and engineers the resolution, crisp imagery, and temperature accuracy needed to help improve product design, increase efficiency, or gain insight into a target’s thermal behaviour.
Thermal imaging indispensable for investigating damp spots
Paul Sevink is a professional handyman, the scope of his work is extremely broad. In addition to general maintenance and renovation, he installs and maintains vacuum cleaning systems and infrared heat panels and he is also a certified wood refurbishment specialist. And for fault finding in all these applications, thermal imaging has an important role to play.
Fast and accurate outdoor thermal measurement
