FLIR Muon®FLIR Muon

Thermal Made Simple

FLIR Muon is a calibrated uncooled thermal camera subassembly developed for thermal product OEMs to integrate with their own image processing, packaging and optical solutions. A thermal camera “engine” perfectly optimized for size, weight and power (SWaP), FLIR Muon only requires standard imaging device power and communication protocols to generate corrected CMOS video out.

Ease of Integration - Simplify Product Development and Manufacturing

  • Industry standard interfaces provide for power in, corrected CMOS video out
  • Precision aligned Mg mechanical assembly with Hirose connector
  • I2C communication to abstracted layer

Calibrated Thermal Subassembly - Reduce Product Cost with a Pre-calibrated Subassembly

  • Calibrated using FLIR’s industry-leading temperature stabilized process
  • Only final assembly image optimization required
  • FLIR Muon contains Known Good Die (KGD), increasing manufacturing first pass yield

Market Leading Features - Technical Features and Performance

  • 17µ VOx FPA technology
  • 640 x 512 resolution (59.94Hz for NTSC and 50Hz for PAL)
  • 336 x 256 resolution (8.56Hz for NTSC and 8.33Hz for PAL)
  • SWaP optimized at 22 x 22 x 8 mm and under 5 grams
  • <300 mW power (336 resolution) and <0.5 second start up time

Doing Business With FLIR Systems

The FLIR Muon is perfect for applications that demand a low cost FPA and/or present unconventional size-constraints. It is also ideal for customers familiar with working at the FPA-level who are looking for an alternative to lower-performing amorphous silicon FPAs. Contact your sales representative today to discuss how you can incorporate FLIR thermal imaging technology into your manufacturing process.

Export Information – IMPORTANT

Muon 640 Thermal Sensors

Muon 640 and related technical data (other than data approved for public release) are controlled for export purposes to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The ITAR requires that any export, re-export, or re-transfer of Muon 640 full video rate cameras, or related technical data, be authorized by the U.S. Department of State (USDOS). The Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) administers export regulations on behalf of the USDOS.

A form DSP-83 (Nontransfer and Use Certificate) must be completed by the consignee, end-user, and – if requested by USDOS – a government official from the country to which the Muon 640 will be imported. FLIR’s export staff then forwards the completed form to USDOS. Export, re-export, or re-transfer of the full-rate Muon 640 or related technical data is not permitted without authorization from the DDTC. Diversion contrary to U.S. law is prohibited.

Violations of the ITAR are extremely serious and can result in fines, imprisonment, or both.

Muon 336 Thermal Sensors

Muon 336 sensors and related technical data (other than data approved for public release) are controlled for export purposes by the U.S. Department of Commerce (USDOC). A validated export license must be obtained from the USDOC prior to export, re-export, or re-transfer of a Muon 336 outside of the United States or Canada.

A form BIS-711, Statement of Ultimate Consignee or Purchaser, must be completed by the consignee and end-user. FLIR’s export staff then forwards the completed form to USDOC. Export, re-export, or re-transfer of the Muon 336 or related technical data without prior approval by the U.S. government is not permitted. Diversion contrary to U.S. law is prohibited.

Slow-Rate Muon Thermal Sensors

Thermal imaging devices with frame rates <9Hz (a.k.a. “slow video”) may be exported outside of the United States without an export license, except to designated sanctioned countries. Slow video thermal cameras may not be used for military applications, and beginning in 2017, the U.S. government requires customers to complete a statement of non-military end use for thermal imaging cameras operating at <9Hz.The Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) for slow video thermal cameras is 6A993.
