Infrared camera ImageIR 9300 for electronics

ImageIR ® 9300 was developed for demanding operations in research and development, non-destructive material testing and process monitoring sectors. Its modular structure, which consists of optical-, detector- and interface-modules, makes it easily adaptable to the respective application.

Integrated Trigger and Process Interfaces

The camera series ImageIR ® is equipped with a snapshot detector as well as with an internal trigger interface, which guarantees a repeatable high-precision triggering. Two respective in- and outputs are used to operate the camera or to generate digital control signals for external devices. Two digital channels of the data stream can be recorded synchronously with those trigger inputs. Additional digital and analogue in- and outputs are available in connection with the process interface IRBIS ® 3 process. Furthermore, extra information will be saved directly with the images.

Avoid measurement errors using highest geometrical resolution of (1,280 x 1,024) infrared pixels

It is equipped with a cooled focal-plane-array photon detector with a format of (1,280 x 1,024) IR pixels. In combination with the outstanding thermal resolution of 0.025 K (25 mK), very high frame rates of 106 Hz and extremely short integration times of only a few microseconds, this camera offers you a whole new range of applications.

Thermographic camera series ImageIR® with new 10 GigE interface

10 GigE interface for a strong increase in output

The new 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface of the high-end camera series ImageIR ®, opens this extremely fast transmission standard with a NIC specially developed by InfraTec. This works with optical or electrical transceiver modules that are easy to change and are called SFP+. For all models of the ImageIR ® 9300 with their (1,280 × 1,024) IR pixel detectors this leads to a transfer rate in the full frame mode up to 106 Hz. The top model of the ImageIR ® series, the ImageIR ® 10300, reaches with a full frame of (1,920 × 1,536) IR pixels an outstanding frame rate up to 100 Hz. Users can transfer/store large quantities of data to a computer easily and reliably. Different 10 GigE fiber SFP+ transceivers allow transmission ranges of up to ten kilometers with the same low sensitivity to electromagnetic interference. A corresponding standard SFP ensures backward compatibility with the conventional GigE interface. This combination allows the ease of use of the cameras with the new 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface in existing systems - though at a reduced transmission rate.

Site protection with infrared camera ImageIR 9300 Series

Easily transfer your radiometric data to the computer

You will be able to work with both radiation proportional data formats and also directly with temperature data in °C or °F.
You will receive the data by setting your specific parameters in the easy handling acquisition interface of the  ImageIR ® 9300 series.

Detect smallest temperature differences using high thermal resolution of 25 mK

The thermal resolution of the ImageIR ® 9300 infrared camera series allows you to measure smallest temperature differences of only 25 mK (0.025 °C) (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.

Comprehensive thermography evaluation software for efficient operation

The software family IRBIS ® 3, which was developed by InfraTec, is part of a complete system of the camera series ImageIR ®. The comfortable and professional thermography software IRBIS ® 3 professional offers a wide range of analysis- and editing tools to analyse sophisticated thermal investigations. The combination of ImageIR ® together with the professional thermographic software meets all requirements that are set as standard for efficient high-performance tools for thermographic investigations.

Take advantage of the modular concept for your flexibility

The closed, industrial-suited, high-strength aluminium alloy housing is very compact and protects the sensitive sensors and electronics even during roughest applications. It impresses with its low weight. The modular design allows for an application-specific configuration and later adaptation to varying demands. The interfaces are equipped with push-on connectors to uphold the degree of protection.
