Frequency of IR camera

Dear all,
Kindly assist me on this matter,
In Flir Thermacam SC2000's specification, it mention about "detector refresh rate = 60Hz".. what does this statement mean actually?

Dear Zakie,

I would guess that what you are referring to corresponds with the line frequency of the AC supply in US (The instrument may be from USA).

You don't state where in the manual this is stated but since these cameras use a mechanical cooling device its most likely to do with the cooling control refesh rate. Too slow and you may miss small fast changes in temperatures or be inaccurate. If unsure ask FLIR they will clarify for you.

Hi Zakie,
This refers to the rate at which Infrared camera scans/refreshes on capturing the image.
For 1st moving items, we prefer 60Hz, slow moving items we go as low as 9Hz. But we also do have the 25 & 30Hz cameras.

John O'Brien was right, I was only clarify what he said
Hope this helps. Further clarification please contact me on my email: wenama2001@yahoo.com. Flir Kenya

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).

...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
