Next generation of Infrared Detector Interface
Boosts Camera Full-frame Rate

The new ImageIR® 8300 hp with InSb-MWIR focal-plane array photon detector of the latest generation with (640 x 512) IR pixel now allows 355 Hz full-frame rate. Thus, ImageIR® 8300 hp reaches a three times higher frame rate in full frame mode than previous camera systems in this perfomance category. In combination with ultra-short integration times ultrafast industrial processes or research tasks can be recorded and analysed with maximum detail.

The infrared camera saves images with following frame rates:

  • Full frame: up to 355 Hz
  • Half frame: up to 670 Hz
  • Quarter frame: up to 1,200 Hz
  • Line: up to 5,000 Hz

Like all camera models of this series ImageIR® 8300 hp reaches an outstanding thermal resolution of better than 0.025 K (25 mK, typically 20 mK) and was developed for most demanding operations in research and development and process monitoring fields. Its modular structure consisting of the optical-, detector- and interface section, makes the camera easily compatible to the related applications and for tailored configurations.

An integrated trigger interface guarantees a repeatable high-precision triggering of quick procedures. Two configurable digital in- and outputs serve as control ports for the camera or as generator of digital control signals for external devices. 

In combination with InfraTec´s thermographic evaluation software IRBIS® 3 professional, ImageIR® 8300 hp sets new standards as an efficient high-performance tool for demanding thermography studies. 

10 GigE Interface for a Strong Increase in Output

Thermographic camera series ImageIR® with new 10 GigE interface

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® 8300 hp with their (640 × 480) IR pixel detectors this leads to a transfer rate in the full frame mode up to 355 Hz. Users can 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.

HighSense – Always the Optimal Camera Setting

Cameras of the ImageIR® series have a reliable factory calibration. Thanks to HighSense, ImageIR® users have the option of setting up individual temperature measuring ranges based on the factory calibration that best suit the respective task.

Depending on the measuring task, the required temperature range can be selected and the optimum integration time for this purpose is calculated – or one decides to proceed in reverse order. Thus, the calibration can be retained even in the case of changed integration times.

The software also offers the possibility of storing a large number of such areas clearly arranged. Individually named and permanently stored, the operator can quickly access them. The same applies to changing, renaming and deleting profiles. HighSense is available for different camera models of the ImageIR® series. This function can optionally be added to systems already delivered.

MicroScan feature ImageIR

MicroScan – Quadruple the Image Format

Behind the function is a fast-rotating MicroScan wheel, which is integrated into the camera. 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 and not an interpolated image point. In this way, thermography achieves a new quality due to thermal images providing a spatial resolution up to 1.2 Megapixels.

Laser High-temperature Capillary Gap Brazing

Lasers are extremely versatile tools in industry and manufacturing technology. Due to their flexibility, they serve as a key technology for implementing the goals of industry 4.0. Although laser cutting and welding are nowadays regarded as turnkey technologies, the majority of laser applications, for example joining of hybrid materials, 3D printing or ultra-short pulse processing, still require considerable research and development.

The ImageIR® 8300 hp in Use for Research Applications

Research project spirit logo

The SPIRIT Project

InfraTec expands its know-how in the field of thermography by participating in various research projects. The ImageIR® 8300 hp is used, for example, in the SPIRIT project. A total of eight partners from Austria, Italy and Germany are working together to simplify the use of inspection robots for quality control of complex shaped parts. Up to now, robots for solving such tasks have been programmed specifically for each application. This is usually very time-consuming and causes high costs. In future, in contrast, a simple set-up will be sufficient for the robot-supported testing task.
