Features of VarioCAM® HD Z

The high-resolution thermographic system VarioCAM® HD Z by InfraTec is the world’s first commercially available radiometric microbolometer camera providing a motorised 6× infrared zoom lens for the spectral range of (7.5 … 14) μm. Equipped with an uncooled FPA detector, it provides brilliant 16 bit thermal images of the highest quality with (1,024 × 768) IR pixels. This combination of HD format thermal images and the lens with continuous zoom opens the door to thermal analysis of processes with an unprecedented attention to detail for the user. The potential range of applications extends from securing large outdoor and safety areas such as chemical plants and fuel deposits to environmental monitoring, animal observation and detection of hotspots as part of early fire detection. All these tasks can be solved precisely due to the automatic image stabilisation even at night and in adverse visibility conditions. The equipment with high-quality components supports the efficient use of the stationary system 24 hours a day.

Due to different equipment options, the system can be configured just as needed for various tasks: Automatic threshold detection and signalling as well as digital real-time image acquisition via Gigabit Ethernet are just two of the numerous camera functions. In hazardous areas, where installation demands additional requirements to protect the thermographic camera, ATEX-compliant protective housings ensure lasting reliability and precision. The efficient software IRBIS® 3 for image data acquisition and evaluation completes the VarioCAM® HD Z as the ideal tool for a wide range of IR monitoring tasks.
