The Industry Standard Thermal Imaging Camera Core:
For Applications Where Reliability and Performance Are Priorities
2.0 in
51.4mm
The Photon Camera Core is a compact, all-in-one thermal imager with outstanding
sensitivity and image quality. The on-focal-plane circuitry, combined with FLIR’s
advanced signal processing electronics, enables the camera to maintain excellent
dynamic range and image uniformity over a wide temperature range.
2.0 in
49.8mm
Integrators have embedded tens of thousands of Photon cores in a myriad of
applications including automotive night vision systems, firefighting equipment,
unmanned vehicle payloads, weapon sights, low-power security & surveillance
products, and more.
In addition to the standard Photon 320x240 format, FLIR offers a reduced-resolution
1.8 in
45.0mm
160x120 Photon. The Photon 160 replaces FLIR’s Micron/A10/Omega camera, at a
significantly reduced price. The Photon 160 is mechanically and electrically identical
to the Photon 320 camera. Except for the image format, the Photon 160 provides all the same performance and
functionality of the Photon 320 except for the 2X digital zoom feature. The Photon 160 is available as a lens-less
core, or with either a 6.3mm or 19mm lens.
The Photon Camera Core is a high-volume thermal imaging component that OEM
customers can integrate into products or systems of their own design. Most
OEM customers connect directly to the Photon’s 30-pin connector for power (in),
video (out), and other functions.
The Photon’s 30-pin connector also facilitates the interface to camera control
devices, and provides access to the digital data output. OEM customers typically
order the Photon core in this configuration.

While FLIR normally sells its factory-calibrated and tested Photon cameras with an
associated lens, a lens-less camera core configuration is also available. An optional
software program called Alternate Lens Cal is available to enable customers to
perform a supplementary gain calibration.

Photon Accessory Kit
For evaluation purposes, FLIR offers an optional Accessory
Kit that enables customers to operate a Photon until they
develop their own interface. The Kit contains a power
supply, breakout box (called an I/O Module), an interface
cable, and a small adapter circuit (called a Wearsaver) that
attaches between the camera connector and interface
cable.
The Accessory Kit also includes a rear cover that
Photon OEM Accessory Kit.
encloses the Wearsaver adapter and provides for secure
connection to the interface cable. The end-user only needs
to provide a video cable and monitor, and an RS-232 cable
if remote control of the Photon is desired.
A camera control software program (GUI) is available for
download at:
