Flexibility for More Investment Security
Maximum Configurability of the ImageIR® Thanks to the Modular Structure
Customer-specific Adaptation of the Camera Configuration to the User Requirements
The camera can be adapted to all requirements of the user due to modular design of the ImageIR®. This means that a customer-specific thermography system is achieved in every direction. But the ImageIR® can also be subsequently retrofitted or upgraded in the event of changing measurement requirements. In this way, maximum investment security is achieved.
From the 200 mm telephoto lens to the 8.0× microscope, the front module incorporates all lenses, even the associated motor-focus system with autofocus option. This allows the greatest possible adaptation to the required geometrical resolution and the matching image field. The complete thermal decoupling from the detector module reduces the influence of dissipated heat to a minimum.
Up to two motorised rotating filter wheels / aperture wheels, which can be fitted with up to six individual items per wheel, can be integrated into this module. In this way, a maximum measuring range selection and optimisation for spectral thermography can be achieved. A MicroScan unit or a fast-rotating filter wheel for HDR thermography (HDR = High Dynamic Range) can also be integrated to expand the number of measuring points or the real-time dynamics of the infrared scene. This module is also designed in such a way that it is completely thermally decoupled from the detector module in order to achieve maximum athermalisation of the camera.
The detector cooler unit is installed in the core module of the ImageIR®. Optimised temperature management is responsible for the maximum service life of the system and long maintenance intervals. It offers an abundance of installations options of different detectors, from the high-speed system with 105 kHz imaging rate to full HD resolution.
This module can be equipped with numerous interfaces such as 10 GigE / GigE or CAMLink / 2xCAMLink to transmit measured data directly without loss to a conventional control and acquisition computer with maximum image frequency and to enable external remote control of the camera.
A wide range of application-specific trigger options can be achieved here to ensure a highly precise, repetitive time / event controlled data recording, as is often necessary for active thermography applications and automation solutions. Furthermore, this module can be equipped with configurable digital inputs and outputs to control the camera and to transmit control signals for external devices.
