A new, advanced 100mm USL lens has been launched by FLIR Systems for the FLIR X6500sc thermal imaging cameras. With a 5.5 degree horizontal field of view, this motorised F/2 lens is suitable for precise temperature measurement of distant targets.
The latest addition to the X6500sc lens range will benefit a number of applications. They include safe and distant temperature measurements of brake disks, tyres, airbag deployment and other rapidly moving objects perceived from a distance.
A unique technology from FLIR Systems called Ultrasonic Smart Lens technology (USL) has been integrated in each motorized lens provided for the X6500sc cameras. Through this USL technology, the speed at which the lenses operate can be improved. In addition to this, the positioning accuracy can also be improved, thus promoting quick and accurate autofocusing. Moreover, since FLIR USL lenses employ ultrasonic motors, users can manually change the focus. This option cannot be achieved with conventional technologies.
The FLIR X6500sc thermal imaging cameras are designed to deliver high-tech connectivity in a small yet full featured system. The cameras can be operated easily and provide highly sensitive and precise measurements. They are suitable for R&D professionals and scientists working on challenging applications.
The FLIR X6500sc thermal imaging cameras offer high-definition images of 640x512 pixels and enable users to view the most intricate details and the slightest of thermal behaviour. They feature a sophisticated detector technology and can detect temperature variations below 25mK (18mK typically). With the help of FLIR's patented "lock-in" feature, users can process temperature variations down to 1mK and make them clearly visible. The FLIR X6500sc camera can determine temperatures up to 3,000ºC with +/- 1ºC or +/- 1% accuracy.
A pioneer in thermal imaging technology, FLIR designs and develops thermal imaging systems and subsystems that are used in a number of applications, including scientific, industrial, commercial, governmental, and fire fighting applications. The company’s development centres and sales offices are spread in more than 60 countries and over 100,000 systems have been deployed across the globe.
