New High-end Camera ImageIR ® Models

High-end Camera ImageIR® from InfraTec

InfraTec’s high-end camera series ImageIR ® is characterized by outstanding measuring performance and a wide application-oriented variability. The new models of the high-speed camera ImageIR ® 8300 hp and the super-zoom thermal imaging system ImageIR ® 8300/9300 Z open new possibilities and more flexibility for the high demanding user. Now, they are suitable for almost every field of application for thermography, from process optimization to research and development or safety applications. 

Always the right camera model for your measurement tasks

All ImageIR ® models have an excellent thermal resolution of up to 0.015 K (15 mK), high frame rates of up to 13,000 Hz and extremely short integration times of up to a few micro seconds. Cooled focal-plane-array-photon detectors of different types are used with (320 x 256), (640 x 512) and (1,280 x 1,024) IR pixels that work in snapshot mode. The flexibly configurable basic concept of this series of camera optics, detector and interface modules, allows an individualized system configuration with optimum adaptation of the performance data to the measurement task. An extensive range of precise imaging, radiometric infrared interchangeable lenses, from telescope to normal and wide-angle or macro and microscopic lenses, can be tailored to virtually any measurement situation.

Comfortable to use with the newly integrated motor-focus function

All interchangeable standard full optics can be combined with the internal focus motor unit of the camera ImageIR ®. The focus can be controlled via the camera user software IRBIS ® 3 online/process. This focus motor unit is designed for permanent operation and allows accurate, remotely controllable and fast motorised focusing. The integrated auto-focus is a prerequisite for the reliable fully automatic operation of the camera at varying distances from the measurement object.

Accurate temperature measurement on microstructures

Tripot from InfraTec

With the new eightfold microscope for the ImageIR ® 9300 and ImageIR ® 8300 models pixel sizes of up to 2 microns can be achieved. Thus, temperature differences can be accurately measured even on the smallest object structures. With the specially developed motor microscope body, a special mount for precise micro-thermography, the vibrations that occur when using conventional tripods of thermographic cameras can be reduced. Image field variations caused through vibrations that occur during the study of thermal changes can be further reduced. Simultaneously, high-precision motorised focusing is possible by adjusting the vertical object distance to +/- 0.5 microns.

New detector readout technology enables a significant increase in frame rates

The latest InSb detector with modified readout technology is used in the camera model ImageIR ® 8300 hp. For the first time, a full-frame rate of up to 350 Hz and (640 x 512) IR pixels are now possible. Compared to previous camera systems in this class, the ImageIR ® 8300 hp now achives more than three times faster frame rates. Very fast thermal processes in industry and research can now be completely recorded and analysed with high pixel resolution at the required sharpness.

First super-zoom cameras in HD resolution

The latest super-zoom thermal imaging systems ImageIR ® 8300 Z and ImageIR ® 9300 Z are designed for a variety of demanding thermal imaging applications, which require both flexible screen fields as well as long ranges. They are used for example in border patrol, search and rescue missions, vehicle monitoring, environmental monitoring, wildlife observation and airborne system monitoring. Equipped with ultra-modern, digital InSb detector technology with resolutions of up to (1,280 x 1,024) IR pixels and a frame rate of up to 100 Hz for full screen, the camera delivers sharp thermal images with high resolution in continuous operation, even in fog or smoke.  The motorised 30x zoom lens with a focal range of (28 … 850) mm enables quick and flexible adaption to different object distances. With an image field of 0.6°, it allows the recording of detailed thermographic images for extremely long distances. For example, the people-detection range is about 15 km, which can be life-saving during search and rescue missions!
