Today FLIR advanced systems and components are used for a wide variety of thermal imaging, situational awareness, and security applications, including airborne and ground-based surveillance, condition monitoring, navigation, recreation, research and development, manufacturing process control, search and rescue, drug interdiction, transportation safety and efficiency, border and maritime patrol, environmental monitoring, and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives threat detection.

About FLIR

T450 sc / T650 sc

Thermal imaging cameras have evolved into widespread instruments for industrial and fundamental R&D.

In many cases R&D professional choose for a fixed mounted thermal imaging camera. There are however some R&D professionals that are opting for a portable thermal imaging camera that they can take from experiment to experiment.

For these users FLIR Systems now markets the SC650 and SC450 R&D / Science packs.

The SC650 pack contains a T650 sc thermal imaging camera. A T450 sc thermal imaging camera is included in the SC450 pack. Both packs include ResearchIR software.

Full featured camera

Both thermal imaging cameras contain all the features that are needed in an R&D / Science environment including FLIR “industry first’ features like:

  • Multi Spectral Dynamic Imaging (MSX)
    Produces extremely detail rich thermal images. MSX provides better texture in a thermal image. Due to this new feature more thermal anomalies can be detected, more detailed analysis can be done and conclusions can be drawn in a split second.
  • Instant Report
    An ‘instant report’ (with sketches or other text comments included) can be created directly in camera.
  • Image sketch
    Allows to clearly indicate on a saved image the location of the problem area both on the thermal and the visual image. This can be done immediately on the touch screen of the camera. The indications you make will automatically appear in the report.
  • Continuous auto-focus (FLIR T650 sc only)
    A solution with two digital cameras allows for continuous autofocus of the thermal images. Continuous auto-focus makes FLIR T650 sc the first fully automatic thermal imaging camera on the market.
  • 320 × 240 LWIR resolution with interchangeable lenses and up to 8× e-zoom
  • Low noise with NETD of
  • Integrated daylight camera
  • On-camera measurement tools and analytics
  • On-camera real time temperature calibrated movie recording at 30fps
  • Ergonomic design with rotating optical block
  • New easy to navigate user interface
  • Includes ResearchIR 4.0 software
  • MSX® Thermal Image Enhancement
