Avoid Measurement Errors Using Highest
Geometrical Resolution of (640 × 512) Infrared Pixels

Compared with digital camera systems operating in the visible spectrum thermographic detector technologies still suffer from lower pixel numbers. Therefore every pixel counts as in former times of digital photography. This ImageIR® infrared camera series offers you (640 × 512) IR pixels of the high-resolution detector.

Increase Your Flexibility by Using the Modular Design Concept

InfraTec ImageIR® High-End infrared camera series


The ImageIR® series is based on a modular concept and allows for successive upgrading and changes of powerful components like motorized lenses or a high-speed shutter. Already in its basic configuration it can be delivered with different detectors which support your application the best way. Like this you will always remain flexible and optimally adapt your camera systems to your respective needs.

  • Measure Precisely Over a Long Time

    A high long-term stability of the thermographic measurement with infrared camera systems of the ImageIR® 8300 series is achieved by an excellent thermal decoupling of the electronics module which will emit heat during its operation from the optical and detector module being most important for the signal receipt.

  • Detect Smallest Temperature Differences Using High Thermal Resolution of 20 mK

    The thermal resolution of the ImageIR® infrared camera series allows you to measure smallest temperature differences of better than 0.02 K (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.

  • Acquire Thermal Images in a Millisecond of Time

    The exact and fast control of the detectors of the ImageIR® 8300 series provides the possibility to acquire and analyse thermal images at a time scale of milliseconds. Thereby it allows an easy analysis of fast processes regarding their thermal changes. Thermal images can be stored at a frame rate of up to 2.5 kHz and provide insights into thermal changes of fast running processes.

Rotating aperture wheel and filter wheel for infrared camera


Make Use of Spectral Filters for Material Specific Measurements

Material specific emissivity and transmissivity properties have to be taken into account while measuring with infrared camera systems. The integration of spectral filters makes use of those specifics for special measurements. For example, spectral ranges of thin PE foils can be excluded in case they are highly transmissive – to say transparent. Like this only the radiation will be measured which is purely emitted by the foil itself. Based on its long experience in thermography InfraTec can support you in selecting the right spectral filter. The infrared camera systems of the ImageIR® series can integrate a remotely controllable filter wheel which can hold up to four spectral filters. The filter position close to the detector can avoid warm aperture effects and allows for the usage of smaller and thereby cheaper filters in the infrared camera.

Extend Your Temperature Measurement Range with an Automatic Aperture Setting

The temperature measurement range of the ImageIR® infrared camera series can be widened by an integrated aperture wheel. The motorized aperture wheel can be controlled by the camera control itself. Working with calibrated measurement ranges the appropriate aperture will even be automatically set in the infrared camera. When filter and aperture wheels are separately integrated ImageIR® camera series will be especially flexible in handling specific measurement situations.

Thermographic Microscopy with ImageIR® 8300

At the same time that the performance of electronic components is being driven ever higher the demand for thermal management at ever smaller scales is also occurring. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology (ISIT), as a development partner, supports companies in meeting these growing needs in an optimal fashion. As a result, the latest scientific developments can be implemented in new products very quickly, sus-taining the rapid rate of innovation required by the industry. In order to deal with this challenge, the ISIT, as well as other Fraunhofer Institutes, has a range of excellent technology. This technology enables its specialists to fulfill their tasks in the very best way.

Thermographic testing of turbine blades

Thermography for Quality Assurance

Today gas and steam turbine power plants by the SIEMENS AG are more than ever complex high-tech products. They provide a continuous and reliable electrical power supply for industry and population worldwide. They do this using fossil fuels very efficient and therefore exceptionally friendly for our environment. To achieve this highest quality of every single component is absolutely imperative. Thus heavily stressed parts like the turbine blades are tested with the latest measurement techniques for example with infrared thermography.

Thermography in CFRP Processing

n 1960 when the first laser was announced there was no indication of how the field would develop and today there is almost no area of science and industry that remains untouched by lasers. New applications emerge almost daily demanding the development of even more sophisticated laser systems and one of the leading global research and development institutions for laser-based solutions and their implementation is Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH). Many of these new systems operate at very high laser intensity levels and consequently require close control of thermal processes. This is achieved by the use of infrared thermography which is both contact-less and provides imagery.

Thermography for Optimisation of Installed Wind Turbines

Due to the decreasing number of suitable locations for wind turbines and the increasing push towards renewable energy sources, new activities have been introduced to improve the efficiency of rotor blades for wind turbines. For several years now, thermography has been a valuable tool for investigating the boundary layer behavior on airfoils in order to aerodynamically optimise it.
