Scion PTM



The FLIR A6780 SLS LWIR camera system makes it easy to measure temperatures of rapid thermal events and high-speed targets, making it an ideal choice for industrial, military, and manufacturing R&D applications. Thanks to its cooled, longwave Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detector, the A6780 provides faster snapshot speeds than other detectors for crisp images without motion blurring. Manual and remote-focus lens options provide flexibility to maximize the number of measurement pixels on the object of interest. Simple, 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.


Control the camera and stream real-time data using a single Gigabit Ethernet cable; capture the data you want when you want it thanks to advanced triggering and synchronization capabilities.


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.
