Teledyne FLIR Introduces Radiometric Infrared Camera

By Joel Davies -

Teledyne FLIR has released the FLIR RS6780 long-range radiometric infrared camera system, designed for range tracking, target signature, outdoor testing, and science applications in all conditions.

Featuring continuous zoom, the camera includes an integrated motorized three-position filter wheel and optional factory calibrations to support thermography applications up to 3000°C. The optional 3x zoom afocal lens attachment allows engineers and scientists to change the focal range from the standard 50 mm – 250 mm to up to 150 mm – 750 mm.

“The RS6780 enables precision long-range measurement and tracking applications by combining a full-feature, radiometric infrared camera sealed within an IP65-rated enclosure to protect it from the elements”, said Desmond Lamont, global business development manager, Teledyne FLIR.

“This small-format camera is perfect for open-air testing, thanks to its ability to detect minute temperature differences at long distances, multiple connectivity and software options for easy integration, and a metric zoom lens that optimizes pixel density on target while enabling advanced radiometric measurements, such as radiant intensity. The system also weighs 37 lbs. (16.7 kg) or less for easy deployment and mobility”.

The lens system provides instantaneous, frame-by-frame focal position information to enable factory or custom calibrations for thermography and radiometry applications, including supporting time-space position information (TSPI) data collection. It can be deployed as a stand-alone camera or one that is integrated into a larger testing system through the FLIR Science Camera SDK.

A variety of connection and video inputs and outputs on the camera are offered, including inter-range instrumentation group (IRIG) timecodes, SDI digital, and sync out/in, which customers can use can for higher speed and quality video feeds for supporting modern tracking and video systems. The camera also features tri-level sync, enabling operators to sync the frame capture of the RS6780 to other types of video output, such as visible or ultraviolet, where the other cameras do not have a sync out/in option. Additional features include a lock-in capability for non-destructive testing applications, trigger in, and Gigabit Ethernet compatibility.

Users can stream thermal data directly to a computer running Windows, MacOS, or Linux. For post-processing and analysis, the RS6780 is compatible with the FLIR Research Studio software application. It also provides access to low-level detector settings and RAW data. This enables users to perform high quality, custom radiometric measurements across approximately 327,000 data points per frame, to generate defensible data as part of research and development projects.
