The FLIR SC660 thermal imaging camera is designed to deliver a combination of infrared and visible spectral images of superior quality and temperature measurement accuracy. Including a host of advanced features as standard, the portable SC660 is ideal for all types of engineering, laboratory or field applications that may benefit from thermal analysis.

Designed for the most demanding R&D applications the SC660's high-definition 640×480 infrared detector delivers exceptional sensitivity, resolution, and image quality. Leveraging proprietary Dynamic Detail Enhancement (DDE) technology the SC660 is able to provide thermal image sharpness unmatched by any other thermal imaging camera in its class.

The SC660 also includes an integrated 3.2 megapixel digital video camera to aid in data presentation. Visible spectrum images generated by the built-in high resolution digital camera can be fused with the IR-images creating a Picture-in-Picture (PiP) view in real time. The PiP function has full flexibility allowing users to adjust the PiP area size and position. Infrared and visual images can be stored in standard jpeg formats.

A 5.6-inch widescreen LCD allows easy on-camera viewing of images. Using a FireWire interface the SC660 can transfer 14-bit radiometric data directly onto high capacity SD-cards or a PC for real-time analysis of captured images. The user can save a full 60 seconds of digital voice and embed it with each IR image allowing a full description of the target and measurement conditions to be recorded. In addition, data from the in-built GPS system can be used to exactly denote the camera's location at the time of making a reading.

Drawing upon its long experience in thermal imaging - FLIR has included in the SC660 an abundance of features that enhance its ease of use, productivity and safety of operation. For instance using FLIR proprietary Contrast Optimiser technology the SC660 is able to automatically adjust and optimise brightness and contrast to make it easier to make thermal analyzes of detailed objects. The SC660's ergonomic magnesium housing is designed for rugged portability and meets the IP54 standard, thereby protecting internal parts from shock, vibration, dust and water splash. The SC660 can run up to 3 hours on a single fully charged battery.

Included with the SC660 is Research IR software thermal measurement, recording, and analysis software. Designed for research and development and advanced scientific applications, ResearchIR software provides a comprehensive set of easy-to-use acquisition, diagnostics, and data sharing tools. In addition the  software includes customisable, savable workspaces that allow users to simply arrange how images, data, charts, and plots are displayed.
