HIGH-SPEED HD LWIR SLS CAMERA

FLIR X8500sc SLS

The FLIR X8500sc SLS is a highly sensitive, high definition LWIR camera designed for scientists, researchers, and engineers. The strained layer superlattice (SLS) detector offers HD resolution combined with shorter snapshot speeds, wider temperature bands, and better uniformity than current LWIR or MWIR alternatives. With advanced triggering and on-camera RAM/SSD recording, researchers can easily stop motion on high-speed events, whether they’re in the lab or on the test range.

VERSATILE AND CONFIGURABLE

Customizable features and full-frame recording to on-camera RAM allow you to capture critical data quickly.

SPEED AND RESOLUTION WITHOUT COMPROMISE

Freeze action at full 1280 x 1024 resolution, and reach integration times 12.6x faster than MWIR detectors.

ADVANCED STREAMING AND ANALYSIS

Control and analyze data live using industry-leading software and advanced data output.
