product image

The FLIR X6800sc is a fast, highly sensitive MWIR camera designed for scientists, researchers, and engineers. With advanced triggering and on-camera RAM/SSD recording, this camera offers the functionality to stop motion on high- speed events both in the lab and at the test range. The X6800sc has a cooled FLIR indium antimonide (InSb) detector and captures full 640 × 512 images at 520 frames per second, or up to 23,077 Hz with windowing.

Advanced triggering and on-camera RAM/SSD recording

  • On-Camera Recording, Digital Streaming

    Save data to on-camera RAM or to the removable solid-state drive (SSD). Stream high-speed, 14-bit data simultaneously.

  • Advanced Filtering Options

    Incorporates an easy access, four-position motorized filter wheel that permits filter exchange in any environment, and features automatic filter recognition.

  • Synchronization, Triggering, and Software

    Maximum versatility for synchronizing and triggering to external events or instrumentation. Works seamlessly with FLIR ResearchIR Max or third-party software.
