High Speed & Stop Motion Infrared Imaging
Researchers who want to stop motion on fast-moving targets, or freeze frame the thermal dynamics of targets that heat and cool rapidly, need thermal cameras that can do more than achieve fast frame rates. True high speed infrared imaging requires fast integration times – down to just microseconds – as well as the ability to capture data at 29,000 frames per second. Next generation infrared detectors now make it possible to record high speed data with the full 640 x 512 frame, meaning researchers can perform dynamic analysis of jet engine turbine blades, supersonic projectiles, explosions, and more, without losing areas of the frame to windowing.
Watching Bullets Fly with FLIR High Speed Thermal!
We bring the FLIR x6900sc into the field to look at firearm mechanics, how body armor reacts to bullets, and catching a bullet in flight! The FLIR x6900sc is one of our highest frame rate thermal imaging cameras.
Tannerite + Watermelon + FLIR Thermal Camera = Stunning Imagery
What do you get when you combine a tannerite filled watermelon and film it with a FLIR thermal imaging camera? A fun video! This was filmed using the FLIR SC6700 High Speed Thermal Imaging Camera.
High Speed FLIR Thermal of a 1911 .45ACP Pistol Shell Casing Ejection
Shot at 1100 frames per second, this is footage of a shell casing ejecting from a 1911 .45ACP Pistol. Filmed using a FLIR SC6813.
1000 FPS Thermal Video from the FLIR X6900SC!
Nothing like 1000 FPS thermal.
FLIR Thermal Water Wig
Using a FLIR x6900SC we pop a water balloon over someone's head in an attempt to create an infrared "water wig" - check it out!
