Infrared Camera Systems from FLIR 


Santa Cruz, CA – The next generation of high-speed, high resolution infrared science cameras is here with the FLIR X6980 and X8580: the latest series of midwave and longwave science cameras offering blazing-fast frame rates and crisp, low-noise imagery along with advanced recording, triggering, and synchronization. From their remote focus capabilities to the rapid data transfer and direct-to-SSD recording, these cameras will improve the quality of your thermal data while saving you time and eliminating frustrations inherent in working in dynamic thermal environments. 

Choose the camera that’s right for your research…

FLIR X6980 – Blazing-Fast Speeds & Crisp Thermal Imagery 

To truly stop motion on a high speed event – a ballistics test; a fast thermal transient; even destructive tests on Li-Ion batteries – you need a camera that can capture detailed images at more than 1,000 frames per second. FLIR X6980 MWIR and X6980 SLS LWIR cameras offer the speed and sensitivity needed, as well as motorized lenses that can be focused remotely. 

FLIR X8580 – High Definition Images & Fast Frame Rates 

Non-destructive PCB testing, radiometry, stress mapping, and target signature characterizations all benefit from the X8580’s high definition, 1280 × 1024 thermal sensor that detect small temperature differences with very little noise. Plus, the X8580 SLS LWIR – with its longwave, strained layer superlattice detector – offers shorter snapshot speeds and wider temperature bands so you can capture crisp stop motion images of high-speed events.

FLIR Motorized lenses for X6980 and X8580 high performance infrared video cameras.


Motorized & Manual Lenses

The next generation of X-Series cameras are compatible with FLIR motorized lenses for precise, remote focus adjustments. Motor-focus lenses ranging from 17–200 mm are available. Manual focus lenses ranging from 17–200 mm and 1X to 5X microscopic to optimize the number of measurement pixels on the object being tested and to optimize focusing for accurate temperature measurements. 

Long-Duration Recordings

Record directly to the on-board, hot-swappable 512GB SSD for up to 15 minutes at high frame rates and full resolution or up to 2 hours with the optional 4TB SSD

Faster Downloads

Fast data downloads from the SSD over any of the digital data buses for advanced analysis with FLIR Research Studio software. Features GiGE, CoaXPress and Camera Link connections for blazing fast transfers over long distances.
