A new technology called MSX has been introduced for FLIR System’s T450SC / 650SC Series IR cameras to aid identification of thermal breakdown problems. Based on the manufacturer’s on-board processor that provides detailed thermal image details in real time – MSX adds visible spectrum definition to IR images in real time. The resultant thermal image clarity makes it easier to identify anomalies, allow more detailed analyses to be done and conclusions to be drawn in a split second. The technology ensures easier identification of problems without compromising radiometric data quality.
Unlike traditional thermal fusion that inserts a thermal image into a visible light picture, the new technology embosses digital camera detail onto thermal video and stills.
