FLIR A6260sc SWIR Camera

FLIR A6260sc Performance Cameras

The FLIR A6260sc sets a new standard for SWIR cameras, offering superior sensitivity and dynamic range paired with the unique flexibility of customized windowing and integration times. This InGaAs camera is very linear in the 0.9 to 1.7 µm sensing waveband, making it the perfect tool for high temperature thermal measurements and applications that require measuring through standard glass.The A6260sc also offers full control over settings such as integration time, window size, and frame rate, while also allowing you to synchronize and trigger to external events and devices, for maximum flexibility.

FLIR A6260sc Infrared Camera Features

  • The A6260sc has a 640 x 512 pixel InGaAs detector capable of recording 209 Hz at full window
  • The A6260sc is very linear in the 0.9 to 1.7 µm waveband, allowing for temperature calibration above 400°C
  • The user can adjust frame rates, integration times, window sizes, detector settings, and more
  • Three user-selectable gain states offer a 75x gain factor, for conditions ranging from very bright to very low light
  • The detector is optimized for the 0.9-1.7 μm or 0.6-1.7 µm waveband, allowing for imaging and temperature measurement through standard glass
  • The A6260sc connects with FLIR ResearchIR Max or third-party software for external camera control, live viewing & recording, analysis, and sharing
