Neutrino® IS Series

HOT MWIR Camera Module + Continuous Zoom Lens

Neutrino IS series combines Teledyne FLIR’s world-class mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) camera modules and continuous zoom (CZ) lenses to offer high–performance imaging solutions with various FPA resolutions and CZ zoom/FOV ranges. Neutrino IS lowers development and manufacturing risk and improves time-to-market. Cutting-edge HOT FPAs, long life and low vibration linear coolers, common camera interfaces, and fully athermalized lenses make for the best-in-class solution. Each camera module and lens are designed for each other, providing optimal performance not achievable when buying and integrating cameras and lenses from multiple sources.

Teledyne FLIR Neutrino IS series is simply the best technical solution available. With nearly off-the-shelf delivery, real price competitiveness and well-known product support and product reliability, it offers the lowest risk solution.
