Flir Quark Uncooled Cores

Quark Uncooled Thermal Imaging Camera CoresHeatSec_Flir_Quark-6mm

A quantum leap ahead in the design and capability of longwave thermal camera cores, Quark provides leading-edge imaging performance and reliability in a compact, lightweight package. Quark’s innovative design is enabled by wafer-level packaging of the microbolometer sensor.

 

Key features include:

  • Available in 336 and 640 resolution: Both with 17-micron pixels
  • Ultra-Small Volume & Low Mass: Enables new applications in smaller packages
  • Low Power Consumption: Gets the most out of available power
  • High Shock And Vibration Tolerance: Designed for years of maintenance-free operation
  • 30/60 Hz Field-Switchable Frame Rates (Quark 336 only): Versatility for a wide range of applications
  • Affordable: Low prices in both large and small quantities
