High-Speed-Thermography in Megapixel format
InfraTec’s High-End Camera Series ImageIR®Dresden, )
All models of that camera series have an excellent thermal resolution of up to 0.02 K (20 mK), very high frame rates of up to 13,000 Hz, and extremely short integration times in the microsecond range. Cooled focal-plane array photon detectors of different types (InSb, MCT and QWIP) are used, with formats of up to (1,280 x 1,024) IR-pixels that work in snapshot mode.
For the first time, the new ImageIR® 8300 hp enables full-frame rates of 350 Hz with (640 x 512) IR-pixels, and therefore reaches a three times higher image speed than other existing camera systems of this performance class. Subframe sequences can even be captured with up to 2,400 Hz. For camera control and high-speed transfer of radiometric image data (14 bit), either a Gigabit Ethernet or CamLink Interface is available.
For the camera series ImageIR® high-quality and individually exchangeable full optics are used that are optimised for the particular focal length and spectral application. All standard full optics of this series can be equipped with an optional motor focus unit. It allows precise, remote and motorised focusing and is part of the autofocus function. The latest motorised 30x zoom lens of the models ImageIR® 8300/9300 Z with a focal length of (28 … 850) mm and an image field of below 0.6° allows reliable detection of the smallest objects within long distances.
In combination with the thermography software family IRBIS® 3, developed by InfraTec, for digital real-time data acquisition and evaluation, the ImageIR® as an efficient high performance tool sets new standards for demanding thermographic analysis.
