High-Speed, High Resolution

The Next X-Series: FLIR X8580 & X6980

The next generation of high-speed, high resolution thermal science cameras is here with the new X8580 and X6980: the latest series of midwave and longwave science cameras offering blazing-fast frame rates and crisp, low-noise imagery along with advanced recording, triggering, and synchronization. From their remote focus capabilities to the rapid data transfer and direct-to-SSD recording, these cameras will improve the quality of your thermal data while saving you time and eliminating the frustrations inherent in working in dynamic thermal environments.

FLIR X8580: High Definition Images, Fast Frame Rates 

x6980-x8580 thermocouples.jpgNon-destructive PCB testing, radiometry, stress mapping, and target signature characterizations all benefit from the X8580's high definition, 1280 × 1024 thermal sensor that detect small temperature differences with very little noise. Plus, the X8580 SLS—with its longwave, strained layer superlattice detector—offers shorter snapshot speeds and wider temperature bands so you can capture crisp stop motion images of high-speed events.

To truly stop motion on a high speed event—a ballistics test; a fast thermal transient; even destructive tests on Li-Ion batteries—you need a camera that can capture detailed images at more than a thousand frames per second. FLIR X6980 MWIR and X6980 SLS LWIR cameras offer the speed and sensitivity needed, as well as motorized lenses that can be focused remotely.
