Measure Precisely over a Long Time
A high long-term stability of the thermographic measurement with infrared camera systems of the ImageIR® 8800 series is achieved without any shutter 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. Also external temperature changes is being taken care of by a multitude of calibration curves and internal calibration routines.
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.
Measure Correctly with an Accuracy of +/- 1%
If your measurement object has a temperature of 18.7 °C will always measure 18.7 °C and exactly this is taken care of by the infrared camera systems of the ImageIR® 8800 series. You can rely on a correct measurement with an accuracy of +/- 1%
Easily Transfer Your Radiometric Data to the Computer
You will be able to work with both radiation proportional data formats and also directly with temperature data in °C or °F. You will receive the data by setting your specific parameters in the easy handling acquisition interface of the ImageIR® series at a frame rate of up to 2.5 kHz.
Highest Homogeneity will Provide you with a Brilliant Picture
A infrared camera out of the ImageIR® 8800 series offers highest homogeneity by combining cooled detector technology of the latest generation with other high precision components. Precise thermography measurements therefore will not be influenced by any fixed pattern and thermal images will be absolutely clear.
Avoid Measurement Errors Using Highest Geometrical Resolution of (640 × 512) Infrared Pixels
Compared with digital cameras 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. The ImageIR® 8800 series offers you (640 × 512) pixels of the high-resolution detector.
Focus the Thermal Radiation Loss-free with Quality Lenses
In the field of thermography, low temperatures result in lower infrared radiation and thereby in smaller signal for the infrared camera. That is why all the available signal should be used. The lens is the part of the infrared camera getting in touch with the infrared radiation first and therefore it plays an important role. Precision lenses being coated with an anti-reflection film for avoiding disturbtions take care that the whole infrared radiation will be focussed to the detector of the ImageIR® 8800 series. You will find a wide range of lenses like for instance telephoto or wide-angle lenses.
Acquire Thermal Images in a Millisecond of Time
The exact and fast control of the detectors of the ImageIR® 8800 infrared camera 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 100 Hz in full frame mode and provide insights into thermal changes of fast running processes.
