Avoid Measurement Errors Using Highest
Geometrical Resolution of (640 × 512) Infrared Pixels

Compared with digital camera systems operating in the visible spectrum thermographic detector technologies still suffer from lower pixel numbers. Therefore every pixel counts as in former times of digital photography. This ImageIR® infrared camera series offers you (640 × 512) IR pixels of the high-resolution detector.

The ImageIR® series is based on a modular concept and allows for successive upgrading and changes of powerful components like motorized lenses or a high-speed shutter. Already in its basic configuration it can be delivered with different detectors which support your application the best way. Like this you will always remain flexible and optimally adapt your camera systems to your respective needs.

  • Measure Precisely Over a Long Time

    A high long-term stability of the thermographic measurement with infrared camera systems of the ImageIR® 8300 series is achieved by an excellent thermal decoupling of the electronics module which will emit heat during its operation from the optical and detector module being most important for the signal receipt.

  • 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 (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.

  • Acquire Thermal Images in a Millisecond of Time

    The exact and fast control of the detectors of the ImageIR® 8300 series provides the possibility to acquire and analyse thermal images at a time scale of milliseconds. Thereby it allows an easy analysis of fast processes regarding their thermal changes. Thermal images can be stored at a frame rate of up to 2.5 kHz and provide insights into thermal changes of fast running processes.

Make Use of Spectral Filters for Material Specific Measurements

Material specific emissivity and transmissivity properties have to be taken into account while measuring with infrared camera systems. The integration of spectral filters makes use of those specifics for special measurements. For example, spectral ranges of thin PE foils can be excluded in case they are highly transmissive – to say transparent. Like this only the radiation will be measured which is purely emitted by the foil itself. Based on its long experience in thermography InfraTec can support you in selecting the right spectral filter. The infrared camera systems of the ImageIR® series can integrate a remotely controllable filter wheel which can hold up to four spectral filters. The filter position close to the detector can avoid warm aperture effects and allows for the usage of smaller and thereby cheaper filters in the infrared camera.

Extend Your Temperature Measurement Range with an Automatic Aperture Setting

The temperature measurement range of the ImageIR® infrared camera series can be widened by an integrated aperture wheel. The motorized aperture wheel can be controlled by the camera control itself. Working with calibrated measurement ranges the appropriate aperture will even be automatically set in the infrared camera. When filter and aperture wheels are separately integrated ImageIR® camera series will be especially flexible in handling specific measurement situations.

Solid Immersion Lens (SIL) for ImageIR®

In order to make particularly small structures clearly visible, an infrared camera with a large detector format is suitable. In some cases, special measurement and testing tasks require a further increase in spatial resolution. In the field of micro-thermography, high-performance infrared microscopic lenses are used for this purpose. Their benefits can be further increased in conjunction with Solid Immersion Lenses (SIL). Mounted on the optics, these immersion media significantly improve the resolution of even the smallest structures in the µm range.

Power Electronics – Efficient Control of the Futures Energy

The energy efficiency of electronic components is becoming increasingly important in numerous fields of application. And that is not all: in our electronic and high-tech age, the demand is for even faster active components, higher power densities of miniaturised systems as well as absolute reliability. Along with this, there is the request for environmentally conscious resource procurement and the requirement that the increase in performance of modules should run parallel to lower energy consumption.

Infrared Thermography for Determining Heat Transfer Coefficients

Technical systems and devices are often subject to the influence of thermal energy or heat up due to internal processes. Their efficiency and service life can be increased, for example, by optimised thermal management. The installed active components are usually optimised extensively for this purpose. Passive components, on the other hand, are often neglected in this respect.
