See with more sensitivity from farther away

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.

Detecting SF6 Leaks from Electrical Circuit Breakers

Detecting SF6 Leaks from Electrical Circuit Breakers

FLIR Systems GF306 optical gas imaging camera has been designed to address the challenge that electrical power stations face in detecting gas leaks from their Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) circuit breakers.

The longer a leak from a SF6 circuit breaker is left undetected and not repaired, the more revenue is lost, and the greater the impact on the environment from the electrical power station.

By using a portable, non-contact FLIR GF306 optical gas imaging camera - electrical power engineers can remotely visualize SF6 leaks from a safe...

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

The FLIR GF346 Optical Gas Imaging Camera is designed to detect even the smallest Carbon Monoxide (CO) leaks. Able to scan large areas rapidly and pinpoint leaks in real time, the GF346 is ideal for monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers. Using a FLIR GF346 safeguards personnel from the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning, reduces repair downtime and provides verification of the process. And above all it is exceptionally safe, allowing potentially dangerous...
