The FLIR RS6780 offers advanced detector, triggering, and synchronization capabilities in an environmentally protected package, making it easy to configure and integrate for successful data acquisition in the most demanding R&D applications. With a three-position motorized filter wheel and continuous metric zoom (CZ) lens, the RS6780 records sharply focused, high-quality thermal images in long-range and tracking applications. The standard 50-250 mm CZ lens can be factory-calibrated for temperature and radiance measurements, allowing researchers to use the radiometric camera system without sacrificing the flexibility of the optics platform.

  • Superior measurement accuracy

    Capture crisp thermal images of high-temperature targets with 640 x 512 resolution, a three-position filter wheel, and continuous metric zoom lens

  • Flexible

    Synchronize the camera with external events or instrumentation, control precisely when an image frame is generated with advanced triggering, and embed TSPI-accurate data timestamping

  • Small and rugged

    Easily integrate this lightweight system indoors or outdoors – the IP65 weatherproof enclosure provides protection in the harshest environments
