High Temperature Thermal Imaging Through Glass

FLIR Systems introduces the FLIR A6262sc – a high performance SWIR camera with very special ablilities. Using a proprietary VisGaAs detector, that provides extended spectral coverage down into the visible range, enables the FLIR A6262sc to uniquely make measurements through glass.

The FLIR A6262sc camera sets the standard for high temperature thermal measurement in through glass oven, furnace, and environmental chamber applications by combining high-speed performance, unique spectral coverage and a suite of fully customizable features. The newly-designed high resolution detector offers improved sensitivity and linearity across the full dynamic range, making it ideal for radiometry and temperature calibrated applications.

The FLIR A6262sc is a fully equipped thermal imaging camera. It is particularly flexible and versatile since users can fully configure camera settings such as frame rate, integration time and window size according to their wishes and requirements. The A6262sc is equipped with an indium gallium arsenide detector optimized to the 0.6 – 1.7 µm waveband, which produces crisp, 640 x 512 pixel thermal images. The sensor includes three user selectable gain states offering a 75x gain factor, making it an exceptionally flexible tool for imaging bright objects (laser beam profiling), low light scenes (nightglow imaging) and verification of silicon wafers. Its sensor offers a 75x gain factor.

The A6262sc offers full customization of all settings, including integration time and frame rate, so you can tailor the controls to each unique application. Synchronize and trigger the camera with external events and devices, for maximum flexibility. The A6262sc also provides a built-in flat field shutter that can be either manually or automatically controlled for spatially-uniform image quality.

The FLIR A6262sc cameras work seamlessly with FLIR ResearchIR Max software, enabling intuitive viewing, recording, and advanced processing of thermal data. They are fully compliant with GigE Vision® and GeniCam, making them plug and play with other software programs, such as MathWorks® MATLAB.

180:  Optical Gas Imaging Camera Guidebook

FLIR Systems has published a new guidebook that provides informative tips to enable engineers and scientists to get the most out of their Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera.

OGI cameras use spectral wavelength filtering and Stirling cooler cold-filtering technology to visualize the infrared absorption of gases such as methane, sulfur hexafluoride, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and Freon refrigerants. FLIR Systems produces a range of optimized OGI cameras, each with a filter that matches the spectral absorption of the gas it is designed to visualize.

Through OGI technology, the industries including petrochemicals, chemicals and power generation can incorporate a safer, more efficient ‘Smart LDAR’ (Leak Detection and Repair) program. Inspectors can detect fugitive emissions and leaks faster and pinpoint the source immediately, leading to prompt repairs, reduced industrial emissions, and greater conformity to regulations. In addition, OGI saves money, not only through efficiency but more importantly by improving the safety of company personnel and assets.

The new guide provides tips on understanding the application, environmental considerations, qualitative and quantitative measurements, safe operation, measuring temperature correctly, working with ATEX permits, industrial emissions regulations, available training and return-on-investment.
