Key Features and Benefits
With 1.3MP image resolution, the HD-IR 1280 infrared camera generates sharp images. This quality makes them suitable for monitoring vast areas and observing fine details. It features high performance electronics, thus generating full-frame thermal images at rates up to 105fps. It is equipped with a motorized filter wheel, which increases the dynamic range of the camera and splits the scene signal into four spectral channels. Figure 3 depicts the IR signature acquisition, whereas Figure 4 illustrates the coastline surveillance and IR signature acquisition.

The HD-IR 1280 infrared camera has a high speed internal memory of 1GB for more than 7 seconds recording and autonomous operation. Internal memory is partitioned into segments for back to back recording. Hardware TTL or automatic software trigger with pre and post triggering capabilities. It is fitted with a compact, rugged, and sealed IP67 enclosure to handle harsh conditions. The Thermography Package consists of the following components:
- WiFi camera control and data transfer
- Enhanced high dynamic range imaging (EHDRI)
- Automated exposure control (AEC)
- Real time processing (NUC, radiometric temperature, in-band radiance)
Operational flexibility and user friendliness are the benefits of the Thermography Package, which also facilitates acquiring accurate measurements over the entire operation range of the camera.
