High-speed Mode to Increase Frame Rates and Thermal Resolution at the Same Time

If you want to analyze the thermal behavior of objects and processes from a wide variety of perspectives, you can use the high-speed mode for maximum flexibility. This function allows the camera to be used in two different operating modes. The standard mode suits best for depicting the smallest geometrical details. This allows users to record images with the native number of pixel of the camera detector. Switching to high-speed mode opens up the option of more than triple the frame rate, while the field of view (FOV) remains identical. This enables for most accurate time monitoring of fast processes. At the same time, the thermal resolution increases by a factor of 2 in high-speed mode, which additionally improves the analysis of temperature differences.

Integrated Trigger and Process Interfaces

The camera series ImageIR® is equipped with a snapshot detector as well as with an internal trigger interface, which guarantees a repeatable high-precision triggering. Two respective in- and outputs are used to operate the camera or to generate digital control signals for external devices. Two digital channels of the data stream can be recorded synchronously with those trigger inputs. Additional digital and analogue in- and outputs are available in connection with the process interface IRBIS® 3 process. Furthermore, extra information will be saved directly with the images.

Detect Smallest Temperature Differences Using High Thermal Resolution of 20 mK

The thermal resolution of the ImageIR® infrared camera series allows you to measure smallest temperature differences of Better than 0.02 K (at 30 °C). Thermal images with a narrow temperature span display details absolutely sharp. You will find interesting signatures even there where other infrared camera systems cannot detect any temperature differences any longer.

Take Advantage of the Modular Concept for Your Flexibility

The closed, industrial-suited, high-strength aluminium alloy housing is very compact and protects the sensitive sensors and electronics even during roughest applications. It impresses with its low weight. The modular design allows for an application-specific configuration and later adaptation to varying demands. The interfaces are equipped with push-on connectors to uphold the degree of protection.

MicroScan – Quadruple the Image Format

Behind the function is a fast-rotating MicroScan wheel, which is integrated into the camera. It ensures that four different individual exposures are taken per wheel revolution, which are offset laterally by half a pixel each. These individual exposures are brought together in real time into a thermogram with quadruple image format. Each pixel in the image represents a genuine temperature measured value and not an interpolated image point. In this way, thermography achieves a new quality due to thermal images providing a spatial resolution up to 1.2 Megapixels.

10 GigE Interface for a Strong Increase in Output

The 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface of the high-end camera series ImageIR®, opens this extremely fast transmission standard with a NIC specially developed by InfraTec. This works with optical or electrical transceiver modules that are easy to change and are called SFP+. For all models of the ImageIR® 9400 with their (1,280 × 1,024) IR pixel detectors this leads to a transfer rate in the full frame mode up to 180 Hz.

Users can transfer/store large quantities of data to a computer easily and reliably. Different 10 GigE fiber SFP+ transceivers allow transmission ranges of up to ten kilometers with the same low sensitivity to electromagnetic interference. A corresponding standard SFP ensures backward compatibility with the conventional GigE interface. This combination allows the ease of use of the cameras with the new 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface in existing systems - though at a reduced transmission rate.
