FLIR X6900sc Camera Captures Temperature Images at 1,000 Frames Per Second

By: | March 17th, 2016

FLIR Systems’ new FLIR X6900sc is the world’s fastest 640 x 512 pixel resolution thermal camera for high-speed science applications.

Designed to record 1,000 frames per second onto the camera’s RAM for up to 26 seconds, the FLIR X6900sc is unrivaled when it comes to high speed stop motion infrared imaging.

Until now, a camera that perfectly combines the latest high speed visual imaging technology with the state-of-the-art thermal technology has not been commercially available.

However, the FLIR X6900sc is a new thermal camera, equipped with advanced triggering and precise camera synchronization, making it ideal for all types of everyday applications that encompass high speed events, from ballistics testing to fireworks research and development.

Whether measuring temperatures on fast moving objects or characterizing the changing thermal profile of objects as they heat up, FLIR’s new camera offers the rapid frame speed, high resolution, and thermal sensitivity required to virtually “stop motion”.

Ultimately, the camera’s unique characteristics enable it to produce accurate temperature readings, in addition to recording gradients across the entire frame.

Scientists and engineers who want to stop motion on fast-moving thermal targets, or freeze frame the thermal dynamics of objects that heat and cool rapidly, need a thermal camera that can do more than achieve fast frame rates. True high speed infrared imaging requires fast integration times – down to just microseconds – the FLIR X6900sc is able to capture high quality thermal data at 29,000 frames per second.

The next generation infrared detector on the FLIR X6900sc makes it possible to record high speed data with the full 640 x 512 window, meaning researchers can perform dynamic analysis of jet engine turbine blades, supersonic projectiles, explosions, and more, without losing areas of the frame to windowing.
