FLIR A8300sc MWIR Infrared Camera

The FLIR A8300sc MWIR is a compact, high sensitivity, low noise MWIR camera with a cooled Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector for HD thermal images with the finest details. The FLIR A8300sc MWIR HD camera is geared for thermal electronics inspection, thermal microscopy, materials non-destructive testing, failure analysis, aerial thermal mapping, and industrial R&D applications. Short exposure times allow users to freeze motion and achieve accurate thermal measurements. In fact, the camera’s image output can be windowed to increase frame rates and accurately characterize even higher speed thermal events, helping ensure critical data doesn’t get missed during testing.

The A8303sc HD MWIR cameras stream thermal data over Gigabit Ethernet and CoaExpress to a PC for live image viewing and recording. Using FLIR’s ResearchIR software, researchers and scientists can easily monitor, acquire, analyze, and share data. The A8303sc allows for full user control over integration times, frame rates, synchronization inputs, and window sizes. In addition, the camera mates with MWIR close up optics for zoomed-in fields of view, making the camera perfect for thermal imaging of small targets.
