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.
