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

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
