The new FLIR SC5000 Infrared Microscopy System


Croissy-Beaubourg, FRANCE — FLIR Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS) has announced a new microscopy stand that enables its SC5000 Cooled IR Camera to provide an unmatched complete solution for infrared microscopy research applications in electronics, biotechnology and nanotechnology.

The new microscopy stand together with a X5 macro lens, when used with a FLIR SC5000 Series camera, provides spatial resolution down to 3 microns/pixel – without loss of dynamics or measurement accuracy.

The FLIR SC5000 Series is specifically designed for the most demanding users of IR technology, who want to perform thermal imagery at high spatial resolution with the highest sensitivity and accuracy at an affordable cost.

With a choice of 320 x 240 or 640 x 512 pixels format InSb focal plane array delivers respectively an outstanding 100 or 380 Hz frame rate while keeping extraordinary linearity and sensitivity figures.

The use of our FLIR’s latest read out integrated circuit technology provides low noise and high pixel rate without compromising sensitivity.

The FLIR SC5000 Series is truly plug & play using either GigE or CAMLINK interfaces to transmit both commands and full dynamic range digital video. Its autofocus embedded lens allows to easily setup the camera.
