Thermal Infrared Imaging Camera with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) capability

The FLIR FC-309 cameras are the latest, thermal infrared cameras to use our proprietary Wide Dynamic Range Thermal image processing. WDR Thermal lets FLIR cameras provide superior image quality in conditions that leave other cameras in the dark. Designed for high performance, easy installation, and longterm reliability, FC-309 cameras with WDR Thermal give you the image detail needed for optimal threat detection capability and peak analytics performance - even in challenging imaging environments like when the camera is facing the rising or setting sun.


FC-309 FC-309 - 35 mm, 17 μm, NTSC 427-0077-51-00
FC-309 FC-309 - 35 mm, 17 μm, NTSC, 7.5HZ 427-0077-51-00S

FC-309 features include:

  • WDR Thermal for industry-leading threat detection
  •  Weather-proof IP66/IP67 enclosure suitable for operation in extreme environmental conditions
  •  PoE, PoE+, 12 VDC, and 24 VAC power input options for easy installation
  •  Simultaneous IP and analog video outputs along with IP and serial control interfaces for easy integration into
  • IP networks or analog video environments; use them in an existing analog environment, and migrate easily to a future IP network
  • Open IP standards for plug-and-play integration; ONVIF compliant
  •  Streaming digital video available in H.264, MPEG-4, or M-JPEG formats
  •  Advanced thermal image processing with Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) for high-contrast images in dynamic
  • thermal scenes
