|World premiere in Dresden: Radiometric thermal imaging camera with the largest cooled
detector for industry and science
Just in time for the 25th anniversary of the company, InfraTec is presenting its new ImageIR® 10300. This latest model of the high-end ImageIR® series features the world's first radiometric camera with a cooled detector of (1,920 × 1,536) IR pixels for industry and science. Compared to the ImageIR® 9300, the sister model with its smaller SXGA detector, the pixel pitch has now decreased to just 10 μm. This news-breaking development for the IR camera series has opened the door for InfraTec to create thermograms with unprecedented image detail and sharpness. At the same time the geometric resolution of greater than 3 Megapixels translates to a substantial increase in efficiency of testing extremely small micron sized structures on large targets.
The large format is an advantage of the new InSb-Focal-Plane-Array. The other advantage is the excellent temperature resolution that results from utilizing wide-open apertures. This makes the camera suitable for the most demanding measurement and inspection tasks in industry, research and development. Users in these disciplines will also benefit from the 10 GigE interface. This connection will allow to transfer data ten times faster to a computer than with the conventional GigE interface. The data rate of 10 Gbit/s allows significantly higher frame rates while in full screen mode. As a result the ImageIR® 10300 achieves a full frame transfer rate of up to 100 Hz. The connection is completely immune to electromagnetic interference, thanks to modern fiber optic cable technology, and can extend over distances from several meters to tens of kilometers.
