Control Analog & Digital Data Streams Independently


The SC4000 allows for both composite video and digital data simultaneously at all window sizes and frame rates. Additionally, the user can perform on-camera Non-Uniformity Corrections which can be applied independently on the composite video and digital data outputs, allowing for maximum flexibility. For example, a user could output corrected composite video and uncorrected digital data simultaneously.

Adjustable Frame Rates


Through the SC4000's camera control software or SDK, the user can adjust the output frame rate of the camera from 0.1Hz to the maximum frame rate at a given window size and integration time with 0.1Hz resolution.

Built-In IRIG-B
The SC4000 has an integrated IRIG-B clock/decoder that timestamps each frame of data. This clock can be slaved to a master IRIG-B source using the IRIG-B BNC input on the back of the camera. The built in IRIG-B can also be used to trigger the camera.

Fast Frame Rates


The SC4000 features a high speed 50 Megapixel clock that streams 14-bit digital data at 432Hz at full resolution. The frame rates increase as the user windows down the camera.

Multiple Video Outputs


The SC4000 features multiple independent video outputs to include:
Analog Composite (BNC) Digital Camera Link Digital Gigabit Ethernet

Adjustable Integration Times


SC4000 supports up to four active presets, with adjustable integration times, embedded Non-Uniformity Correction and bad pixel replacement. The presets can be used individually or in a continuous cyclic mode for preset sequencing and superframing.

Optional Software & SDK


The SC4000 is compatible with FLIR Researcher, ExaminIR, and RTools software for data acquisition, analysis and reporting. Additionally, FLIR offers a powerful software developers kit (SDK) for customer programming.

Advanced Triggering Outputs


The SC4000 features advanced triggering that allows the user to trigger the camera using external BNC input, IRIG time, or a software trigger. The trigger can clock out a single image, multiple images, or multiple images from multiple presets.

Variable/Flexible Sub-sampling/Windowing
The SC4000 supports windowed readout modes, allowing the user to select a subset of the total image to be read out, resulting in faster frame rates. The user can select the window size and orientation relative to the total focal plane array. In windowing mode, the SC4000 still provides composite video along with high speed digital data.
