ImageIR® Series Thermal Infrared Cameras Have New Functions

MicroScan Quadruples the Image Format

An Eye for Detail w/MicroScanDresden, Germany. —  With MicroScan, InfraTec is introducing for the first time the possibility to quadruple the image format for a radiometric thermography camera used in the civil sector with cooled FPA photondetector.

The function for the ImageIR® camera series is based on an opto-mechanical principle and provides genuine temperature measurement values.

MicroScan increases the resolution of the ImageIR® camera series

The ImageIR® high-end camera series carries the InfraTec DNA more than almost any other product. It incorporates the know-how from over 25 years of practical experience with thermography.

The ImageIR® camera series, InfraTec’s flagship, sets the capability standards for modern thermography cameras. The model series fortifies its status once again with the MicroScan function.

For the first time this enables to quadruple the image format with a radiometric thermography camera with cooled FPA photon detector. Recorded images with up to (2,560 × 2,048) IR pixels (5.2 Megapixels) become possible.

Fast and efficient solution

Behind the function is an integrated, fast-rotating MicroScan wheel. It ensures that four different individual exposures are taken per wheel revolution, which are offset laterally by half a pixel each. These individual exposures are brought together in real-time into a thermogram with quadruple image format.

Each pixel in the image represents a genuine temperature measured value. The spatial oversampling causes a visible increase in image quality: The measurement objects are recorded on the extremely
low-noise exposures with a very fine resolution, including measurements with static and dynamic character.

As a result, MicroScan is suitable for accomplishing the most varied of measurement and inspection tasks, from microthermography to security applicat

The ImageIR® 8800 for investigations in the long-wave spectral range (7.7 … 10.2) ?m has received an improved detector in the format of (640 × 512) IR pixels.

Thanks to the outstanding thermal resolution of 0.025 K, very high frame rates of up to 14,593 Hz, and extremely short integration times in the microsecond range, the camera is suitable for analysing rapid thermal processes, which require a broad temperature measuring range.

The ImageIR® 8300 has additional performance capabilities through a temperature measuring range extended up to 3,000 °C and higher frequencies in creating recordings in full, half, quarter and sub-frame.
