The New Generation SWIR Infrared Cameras
High-resolution, radiometrically calibrated infrared cameras with a very good price/performance ratio - these are the new SWIR cameras from the ImageIR® series. They are suitable for temperature measurements from 300 °C and operate in the short-wave infrared range.

- Cost-effective, compact optics design with high imaging quality
- The compact design and low weight predestine the SWIR thermal imaging camera for integration into existing system environments
- The accompanying Software Development Kit (SDK) provides easy access to all camera functions
- Detector Format
High resolution thermal images for temperature measurement
Flexible setting of temperature measurement ranges beyond factory calibration ranges
- High Temperature Calibration
Wide temperature measuring range up to 1,700 °C
- Measurement Accuracy
Highly accurate and repeatable measurements
- Thermal Resolution
Precise detection of smallest temperature differences
- Pitch Dimension
Smaller pixel sizes avoids geometrical measurement errors
Specialist for Measurement on Metallic Surfaces
The high-resolution ImageIR® 8100 is a very compact thermographic camera designed for stationary use, which works in the short-wave spectral range and is used preferably for contactless temperature measurement on metal surfaces because of its spectral characteristics.
Integration into Existing System Environments
Compact design and low weight make the ImageIR® 8100 and ImageIR® 9100 SWIR infrared cameras ideal for integration into existing system environments. With the associated Software Development Kit (SDK), all functions of the cameras are easily accessible. Due to their robustness, they can also be used in adverse environmental conditions, for example in industry.
The cameras do not require a mechanical cooler and are suitable for maintenance-free continuous operation. With the new SWIR cameras from InfraTec, users thus receive thermographic cameras that are equipped with high measurement accuracy as well as very good short- and long-term stability.
Small Pitch Dimension
They have a pixel pitch of only 5 μm, resulting in a small detector chip diagonal. This in turn allows a comparatively affordable and compact optical design with high imaging quality. In combination with radiometric calibration, brilliant thermographic images with high geometric and thermal resolution can thus be achieved in both formats. In SXGA format, even the smallest details on large-area objects can be optimally resolved. Adaptation to real measurement scenarios is very convenient thanks to the interchangeable lenses with different focal lengths.

Each measurement or testing task has its own characteristic basic conditions. For getting optimal results camera, detector and lens have to be perfectly matched to one another. The field of view calculator helps you to determine the appropriate combination.
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.
Industries & Applications for the SWIR Infrared Camera Series ImageIR® 8100
Some thermographic measurement tasks are characterised by very high temperatures and challenging materials. They can only be solved with a high degree of uncertainty in the medium (MWIR) and long-wave (LWIR) infrared range, with regard to the occurrence of measurement errors. InfraTec‘s SWIR infrared cameras ImageIR® 8100 and ImageIR® 9100 offer new possibilities. They expand the portfolio of thermographic temperature measurement and allow for example emissivity-optimised measurements of temperatures on metallic surfaces.
Further Application Areas
