FLIR Neutrino LC Shutterless Thermal Camera Modules


    VGA/15 µm and SXGA/8 µm HOT FPA camera modules in a SWaP optimised envelope offer low-power consumption, rugged construction, and a wide operating temperature range.


    Small, light, and powerful, the Neutrino SWaP Series camera modules come with common interfaces and support documentation/accessories to shorten time-to-market and reduce project risk.


    The Neutrino SWaP Series cameras offer best-in-class image quality, an industry-leading two-year warranty, superior SWaP performance, high reliability, long lifetime, and come with Teledyne FLIR’s well-known product support.



Neutrino SWaP+C Optimised HOT FPA MWIR Camera Modules

The Neutrino Series OEM camera modules are designed for integration into a higher level system. The VGA-resolution Neutrino LC and the newly released SXGA-resolution Neutrino SX8 provide best-in-class MWIR imagery and data in a small, lightweight package.

The Neutrino Size, Weight, Power, and Cost (SWaP-C) series are OEM camera modules are designed for ruggedised products requiring long life, low power consumption, and quiet, low-vibration operation. These cameras utilise Teledyne FLIR’s linear micro-cooler and High Operating Temperature (HOT) Focal Plane Array (FPA) technology.

Both are ideal for small gimbals and airframes, handheld devices, security cameras, targeting devices, and asset monitoring applications.

The Neutrino SWaP Series is simply the best technical solution available. With nearly off-the-shelf delivery (ITAR free), industry-leading two-year warranty, well-known product support and product reliability, the Neutrino Series is a low risk solution.

  • T2SL HOT FPA provides superb MWIR imagery
  • Tight optics-to-camera tolerances minimise optics size and mass
  • Best-in-class power consumption


Affordable Total Package Revolutionising MWIR Imaging

Teledyne FLIR is the first integrated solutions provider capable of supplying high-performance MWIR camera modules and continuous zoom optic assemblies.

FLIR accelerates time to market for MWIR imaging platform developers with vertically integrated, size-weight-and-power (SWaP) optimised camera modules and zoom optics. Developers can work with a single solutions provider to produce all of the subsystems necessary for a complete platform.

This includes the IR detector, zoom optics, electronics, and packaging results are shorter design cycles, streamlined procurement, increased reliability, and reduced end-item lead time.

Neutrino Software GUI

The Neutrino Demo Application or graphical user interface (GUI) allows developers to quickly start streaming video from the Neutrino LC or the Neutrino SX8. The GUI provides access to functions available within the SDK and uses the x64 Windows 10 program.

It connects to the camera module via an accessory board and provides access to a number of image appearances, NUC calibration, and system settings to help with development. Example interfaces include and are not limited to CMOS and HDMI video mode, LVDS/Camera Link, NUC threshold, NUC gain, image stats controls, and FFC controls.

The interface also provides access to a wide range of diagnostic features such as diagnostic control and the status panel useful for quick troubleshooting. It can load and save configuration files to and from the Neutrino camera module.

Dark coloured roofs captured by FLIR thermal camera

The Sizzling Impact of Dark Roofs and Urban Heat Islands

Dark roofs are popular in Australian urban areas but they come with a catch. Dark coloured materials absorb and retain a substantial amount of heat, increasing local temperatures, and fostering urban heat islands. Understanding the impacts of dark roofs on urban heat is crucial for developing sustainable solutions to mitigate their effects and building resilient cities. The
