FLIR A8580 SLS Cooled LWIR HD 1280 x 1024 Scientific-Grade Thermal Camera

LWIR 7.5-12.5µm camera with crisp 1280 x 1024 resolution Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detector. Full resolution 60 Hz, 480ns exposure time. 

FLIR A8580 SLS LWIR camera provide the crisp imagery, accurate temperature measurement, and streamlined analysis features needed for industrial, military, and manufacturing R&D applications. The 1.3 MP strained layers superlattice detector produces high definition thermal images, while the suite of manual and remote focus lenses allow users to maximize the number of measurement pixels on their target. Simple, single cable connectivity using Gigabit Ethernet or CoaXPress provides complete camera control plus data capturing in FLIR Research Studio software, so users can analyze and understand data faster than ever before.




Scientific Cooled Camera

  • Deeply cooled SLS detector
  • 1280 x 1024
  • Advanced triggering
  • Integrated internal filter wheel
  • Frame rates from 60 Hz
  • Integration times down to 480ns

The FLIR A8580 HD resolution thermal cameras with high sensitivity; a low noise LWIR camera that produces true 1080p HD thermal images. With its short exposure times and crisply detailed images, the A8500 series is perfect for electronics inspection, aerial thermal mapping, non-destructive material testing, and industrial R&D applications.

The A8580 camera features HD resolution, precision focusing with choice of manual and motorized lenses, and a built-in filter wheel for quickly switching to high temperature ranges help ensure you collect accurate, meaningful temperature data. Compatiblity with the new FLIR Research Studio’s simple Connect–View–Record–Analyze workflow helps you collect and analyze data quickly and collaborate with your team easily
