About FLIR


IR Resolution - 320 x 256 pixels

This compact, affordable infrared camera is designed specifically for machine vision.It’s perfect for those applications that only require the benefits of a thermal image but don’t need exact temperature measurement.

Key Features

  • Extremely affordable and Compact 
  • GigE VisionTM (fast image transfer via low cost standard cables over long distances)
  • GenICamTM protocol support (generic programming interface for all types of cameras)
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) 
  • Synchronization (configure one camera as master and others as slave(s))
  • General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) 
  • High sensitivity < 50 mK - < 50 mK
