Scion PTM



The FLIR A6780 MWIR camera system makes it easy to measure temperatures of rapid thermal events and fast-moving targets, making it an ideal choice for industrial, military, and manufacturing R&D applications. This affordable, cooled InSb camera offers the flexibility of both manual and remote-focus lens options to maximize the number of measurement pixels on the object of interest. And single cable connectivity using Gigabit Ethernet provides complete camera control plus data capturing in FLIR Research Studio software – so users can analyze and understand data faster than ever before.


FLIR Research Studio’s simple Connect–View–Record–Analyze workflow helps you collect and analyze data quickly and collaborate with your team easily.


The 327,680 (640 x 512) pixel detector offers three user-selectable, 75x factor gain states for imaging bright and low-light scenes


Offers sub-windowed frame rates up to 4,130 Hz, a suite of lens options, and a built-in 3-position warm filter wheel to quickly switch between standard and high-temperature ranges.
