The “Mini-Core HRC” has been especially designed for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM). It can easily be integrated into systems that require a small, compact and lightweight thermal imaging core with a cooled detector. The “Mini-Core HRC” can be easily integrated in small airborne gimbals or in any other application. Different version of the “Mini-Core HRC” are available.The “µCore-275Z” has been especially designed for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM). It can easily be integrated into systems that require a small, compact and lightweight thermal imaging core with a cooled detector. The “µCore-275Z” can be easily integrated in small airborne gimbals or in any other application.
|Thermal imaging core
Thermal imaging camera cores are subsystems that provide similar features and functions to those found in some of FLIR Systems’ standard camera products. However, cores are designed to allow integration into other systems.
Camera cores can be used in whole or subsystem form by an OEM in many applications.
FLIR Systems provides different components and cores for a large number of advanced thermal imaging platforms. With FLIR's strength in focal plane array manufacturing, vacuum packaging, video processing electronics and system integration, along with high
commercial product manufacturing rates, FLIR Systems is a powerful partner to many OEM customers.
|Cooled MCT detector
The “µCore-275Z” is equipped with a cooled Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) detector. This offers excellent range performance.
The MCT detector produces crisp thermal images of 640 x 512 pixels on which the smallest of details can be seen. It operates in the mid-wave infrared band (3 – 5 µm).
|Continuous optical zoom lens
The “µCore-275Z” is available with a zoom lens. It continuously zooms between a 2° narrow field of view and a 25° wide field of view. For users that want to see even further a version with a 1.5x extender ring is available it zooms between a 1.3° narrow field of view and a 16.5° wide field of view.
The advantage of continuously zooming compared to other systems that are using a rotating lens system is that there is no switch or swapping between the different images. You can gradually zoom in while keeping your focus all the time.
The system allows you to experience better situational awareness in the wide field of view, while maintaining detailed recognition capabilities in the narrow field of view.
|Extremely compact - Easy to integrate
All modules are extremely compact and lightweight. They provide a turnkey thermal imager with advanced image processing features built-in and ready for system integration. They incorporate easily with common power and video interfaces found in existing and new systems.
|Advanced image processing
The “µCore-275Z” contains powerful image processing algorithms which are embedded in the module’s hardware and software. Automatic Gain Control (AGC), histogram equalization and other functions are guaranteeing high quality thermal imaging in any night or daytime environmental conditions.
||Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE)
FLIR Systems has developed a powerful, FLIR Systems patented, algorithm that helps to overcome the problem of finding low contrast targets in high dynamic range scenes: Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE). It assures clear, properly contrasted thermal images and delivers a high contrast image even in extremely dynamic thermal scenes.
