TWO Neutrino™ Camera Series - Performance & SWaP+C

TWO Neutrino™ Camera Series - Performance & SWaP+C

The performance series includes two new models; the FLIR Neutrino OX and Neutrino SX12. Ranging from 1.3 to> 3.1 megapixels, this series includes the highest resolution MWIR camera from FLIR.

The new compact and lightweight Neutrino LC, with its high operating temperature (HOT) focal plane array, sets the standard for SWaP+C. Neutrinos are ideal for commercial, industrial and defense applications. Built from the ground up for integrators, they are easy to integrate, making for shorter time to market.

Detect Carbon Monoxide Leaks Safely

Detect Carbon Monoxide Leaks Safely

The FLIR GF346 is an optical gas imaging camera designed to detect carbon monoxide and a number of other gases. It is unbeatable for detecting even the smallest leaks. The FLIR GF346 can scan large areas rapidly and pinpoint leaks in real time. It is ideal for monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers. Literally thousands of components can be scanned per shift without the need to interrupt the process. Using a FLIR GF346 safeguards personnel from the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, reduces repair downtime and provides...

A Compact Proximity Sensor Built to Last in the Most Extreme Environments

A Compact Proximity Sensor Built to Last in the Most Extreme Environments

Emerson presents the TopWorx™ GO™ Switch model 52M, a low profile, dry contact, proximity sensor with a 316L stainless steel sensing face in an industry standard 12mm package. The temperature ranges from -40°C to 100°C and it’s suitable for IP69K applications. The 52M does not require power to operate and is polarity insensitive with zero need to specify NPN or PNP circuits and maintains the ability to be a plug-and-play replacement for inductive proximity sensors.

Picomag - Economical Pocket-Sized Flowmeter

Picomag - Economical Pocket-Sized Flowmeter

The new pocket-sized electromagnetic Picomag from Endress+Hauser simultaneously measures the flow and the temperature of electrically conductive fluids. It is a cost-optimized solution for utility applications where the focus is on high repeatability (±0.2% o.f.s.) and thus reliable measured values – e.g. to correctly measure water flows (max. 750 l/min, 198 gal/min) or to minimize energy costs.

Due to its compact design, it can be installed into any pipe up to 50 millimeters (2") in diameter, even in confined spaces. In addition, it offers intuitive commissioning with Bluetooth...

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

FLIR Systems GFx320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers quick, non-contact measurement of gas leaks in real time. Using its unique High Sensitivity Mode the camera is able to set a new superior standard for gas leak detection performance. High Sensitivity Mode is based upon an image subtraction video processing technique that effectively enhances the thermal sensitivity of the camera. The HSM feature subtracts a percentage of individual pixel signals from frames in the video stream from the subsequent frames, thus enhancing the differences between frames, which make leaks stand out more...

See with more sensitivity from farther away

Flir System cooled midwave infrared (MWIR) cameras have long held a tactical advantage over uncooled longwave infrared (LWIR) cameras in many airborne and ground-based missions.

While cooled MWIR cameras are highly sensitive, they are also larger, heavier, require more power, and cost more than uncooled LWIR cameras. Recent advancements in High Operating Temperature (HOT) MWIR technology open up new possibilities.
