About FLIR

high sens generic.png High sensitivity
The FLIR X8000sc / X6000sc Series detect temperature differences smaller than 25mK (18mK typically). With the “lock-in” process temperatures differences as small as 1mK will become clearly visible.

auto exposure.png Auto exposure
The camera automatically adjusts its temperature range to best fit the thermal scene.

accuracy kopie.png Outstanding measurement accuracy
High accuracy of +/- 1ºC or +/- 1% produces sensitive thermal images. The FLIR X8000sc / X6000sc Series can measure temperatures up to +3,000º C

windowing Ultra high frame rate with windowing
The FLIR X8000sc Series have an adjustable frame rate of up to 106 Hz full frame. The FLIR X6000sc Series have an adjustable frame rate of up to 145 Hz. The FLIR X8000sc / X6000sc Series can deliver images up to a speed of 3,000 Hz. Windowing allows a subset of the total image to be selectively read out with user adjustable window size. The sub-sample windows can be arbitrarily chosen and are easily defined.

CLUT.png ELR Detector working domain improvement 
Increase the useful range of detector by removing residual non linearities. This unique industry first FLIR processing, extends the working domain of the camera to its limits.

CNUC.png CNUC™ Calibration
CNUC is a proprietary calibration process that provides beautiful imagery and measurement stability. CNUC™ allows for flexible integration time adjustments without the need to perform non-uniformity corrections. CNUC™ calibration also produces accurate measurement stability regardless of camera exposure to ambient temperature variations.

hypercal.png Hypercal™
Ensures the best measurement range with the highest sensitivity. Simply set the desired lower and upper temperature limits and the camera will automatically adjust to the appropriate integration (exposure) time. 

superframing.png Superframing
“Superframing” allows the acquisition of thermal data from up to four user-defined temperature ranges simultaneously, then merges those streams into a single real-time data stream that spans all four temperature ranges, effectively extending dynamic range from 14-bit to 16-bit.


wifi  Wifi
Transfer images and control the camera wirelessly via a smart phone (iPhone) or tablet PC (iPad).
interchange lenses  Wide range of interchangeable lenses 
The FLIR X8000sc / X6000sc Series come with an advanced high performance optical design with lens recognition and automatic measurement adjustments. The X600 sc Series also feature a high performance Ultrasonic Motor USL (Ultrasonic Smart Lens) mechanism for fast and smooth remote focusing. It is also possible to manually adjust the focus directly on the camera.
A temperature probe is integrated in the lens for improved measurement accuracy and drift compensation.

A wide range of lenses and various extension rings are available.
spectral tuning  Motorized filter wheel
The FLIR X8000sc / X6000sc Series contain a 4 slots motorized filter wheel with automatic filter recognition and measurement parameter adjustment. The removable filter holders contain an integrated temperature probe for improved measurement accuracy.
multiple installations  Connectivity
The FLIR X8000sc / X6000sc Series offer a wide range of connectivity options:
  • Camera Link medium for full bandwidth data acquisition (base on X6500sc)
  • GigEVision Ethernet for simple connectivity
  • Standard BNC connectors for often used features such as Detector Sync, Acquisition trigger, analog lockin input.
  • MicroSD-card slot
  • DVI-output compatible with 1080p

An extension port with advanced features and connections is available 
  • IRIG-B / 1 PPS connection for external time stamping
  • Function generator with adjustable waveform, frequency and amplitude
lcd screen Removable Touchscreen LCD 
The detachable touchscreen LCD provides you with on-site image feedback and camera configuration parameters. You can easily adjust the camera to your needs. One touch on the screen controls the acquisition on the computer. 

The LCD touchscreen can be removed from the camera when the FLIR X8000sc / X6000sc Series needs to be installed in a hard to reach position. Just position your camera and control it from a distance.
sd card  Configuration management
Save your camera configuration to the ­SD-Card when loaning your camera to your colleague. Once back, just insert your SD-card and get the camera up and running with exactly your configuration. Stop wasting time to reconfigure your thermal measurement system.
illuminator lights Global Status LED
Located on the top of the camera, the global status LED provides you with instant system status, including ResearchIR status. When green, no doubt your experiment with be fully acquired. The back panel LEDs instantly inform you about the camera status.

About X8000 sc

X8000 sc

For the most demanding R&D professional

Thermal images up to 1280 x 1024 pixels (FLIR X8400sc) will show you the smallest of details and assure excellent measurement accuracy, while fast dynamic scenes will be accurately recorded up to 355 Hz in full 640x512 resolution (FLIR X6580 sc) and up to 4500 Hz using a 320x8 subwindow (FLIR X6580sc).
