Infrared camera compactIR 400 from InfraTec
  • Icon Detector 384x288
    Detector Format

    High resolution thermal images for temperature measurement

  • InfraTec-icon-5-zoll-display
    High-resolution 5" TFT Display

    Representation of the images in native resolution; 180° rotatable and 270° revolvable, daylight suited

  • InfraTec-icon-ip54
    Protection Degree

    Constant excellent optical and metrological performance even in harsh industrial environments

  • InfraTec-icon-therm-45mK
    Thermal Resolution

    Precise detection of smallest temperature differences

  • Easy Handling

    The handheld compactIR 400 thermographic camera extends the segment of the entry level cameras by a unique detector format of (384 × 288) IR pixels. The geometrical resolution exceeds those of cameras with standard formats by 1.6 times and means less work for users during the measurements. Apart from the detector format, the thermal resolution also achieves a level that stands out among cameras of this performance class. Temperature differences of 0.045 K can be detected reliably. 

  • Simple and Convenient Operation

    You can see how easily the compactIR 400 can be operated, for example, when taking overhead thermal images or when inspecting objects that are difficult to access. The lens unit can be tilted up to 70° and thus simplifies work considerably when inconvenient angles impair the perfect shot of a subject. If you want to see whether your shot was successful, this is indicated by the 5" colour TFT display with (1,280 × 720) pixels, which also serves as a touchscreen and is rotable up to 180° and revolvable up to 270°. Thanks to this flexibility, the camera is ideally suited for use in the maintenance of mechanical and electrical installations and in building thermography.

  • Data Evaluation

    The analysis and evaluation of measurement results can be carried out just as conveniently. Users, for example, can generate reports in PDF format already on the camera, transfer them to a printer via a WLAN interface and print them out immediately. The thermographic IRBIS® 3 software family developed by InfraTec is suitable for more detailed inspections.
