FAST-IR – High-Speed Infrared Camera

The FAST-IR infrared cameras are used for the analysis of dynamic events, providing high-speed thermal imaging with an unprecedented temporal resolution at a rapid frame rate (more than 1500 fps full-frame). These high-performance infrared cameras can detect challenging targets due to their extreme sensitivity. They have an improved identification capability utilizing spectral characteristics and adjust themselves to rapid temperature changes

HD-IR 1280 - High Definition Infrared Camera

The HD-IR 1280 infrared cameras from Telops help to analyze events and targets thoroughly through the generation of sharp and crisp images. With high sensitivity, integrated 1.3MP camera, and possible multispectral capabilities, these high-resolution scientific cameras are suitable for airborne mapping and surveillance of vast areas.

MS-IR – Multispectral Infrared Camera

The MS-IR infrared cameras enable spectral signature analysis by facilitating the splitting of the scene signal into eight different spectral bands. The fast-rotating 8-position filter wheel mechanism optimizes the frame rate of the cameras and can be utilized in both fixed and rotating modes.

HDR-IR - High Dynamic Range Infrared Camera

The HDR-IR cameras are suitable for measuring scenes involving an extended temperature range of up to 2500°C. They have minimized NETD and maximized camera sensibility for any static or dynamic scenes, automatically determining the best exposure time based on the scene.

TS-IR - Thermal Scientific Infrared Camera

TS-IR infrared cameras provide unprecedented image accuracy and sensitivity. These versatile scientific cameras have a 4-position filter wheel, and a rugged enclosure to handle the most challenging environments.

Key Features of Telops Infrared cameras

Telops infrared cameras are equipped with Real-Time Processing (RTP) and Real-Time Temperature Calibration (RTTC) features. The RTTC process avoids performing challenging calibration measurements in the field. While running the camera, the data acquired is instantaneously processed by the RTP process, presenting the temperature variations of the scene in real-time. The presence of robust post-processing software enables users to read data in different formats, including emittance, radiance, NUC, RAW, and temperature.

All Telops infrared cameras deliver a radiometric temperature accuracy of ±1°C or ±1% over the entire range. Temperature sensitivity is crucial in the acquisition of thermal imaging data. The Telops infrared cameras are capable of detecting temperature differences down to 20mK. The Thermography Package developed by Telops makes the cameras user-friendly and operable by users of all experience levels to acquire more precise and accurate data. The Thermography Package consists of wi-fi data transfer; internal storage capacity; processing (RTP); patented Real-time Temperature Calibration (RTTC); Automatic Exposure Control (AEC); and Enhanced High Dynamic Range Imaging (EHDRI). The TS-IR and the HD-IR (InSb) cameras are equipped with the Thermography Package.
