Depending on the measurement and inspection task, thermal imaging cameras are exposed to a wide range of environmental conditions. Dirt, water, climatic and mechanical extremes are major challenges for the sustained precision and reliability of the systems. Based on experience from more than 25 years of thermographic practice, InfraTec has developed protective housings that can be adapted to extremely different situations on site. Users can choose between numerous options: light aluminium constructions or solid stainless steel cases, integrated scavenging air supply or active air cooling, infrared special foil or germanium window, protection for an individual thermal imaging camera or additional protection for a visual camera. In this way, a solution that perfectly suits the conditions relating to the measurement object is achieved.
