Detect smallest temperature differences using high thermal resolution of 20 mK

The thermal resolution of the ImageIR ® 5300 series allows you to measure smallest temperature differences of only 20 mK (0.02 °C) (at 30 °C). Thermal images with a narrow temperature span display details absolutely sharp. You will find interesting signatures even there where other infrared camera systems cannot detect any temperature differences any longer.

Acquire thermal images in a millisecond time

The exact and fast control of the detectors of the ImageIR ® 5300 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 12 kHz and provide insights into thermal changes of fast running processes.

Extend your temperature measurement range with an automatic aperture setting

The temperature measurement range of the ImageIR ® 5300 series can be widened by an integrated aperture wheel. The motorized aperture wheel can be controlled by the camera control itself. Working with calibrated measurement ranges the appropriate aperture will even be set automatically in the infrared camera. When filter and aperture wheels are separately integrated ImageIR ® 5300 camera series will be especially flexible in handling specific measurement situations.

Highest homogeneity will provide you with a brilliant picture

A infrared camera out of the ImageIR ® 5300 series offers highest homogeneity by combining cooled detector technology of the latest generation with other high precision components. Precise measurements therefore will not be influenced by any fixed pattern and thermal images will be absolutely clear.

Make use of spectral filters for material specific measurements

Material specific emissivity and transmissivity properties have to be taken into account while measuring with infrared camera systems. The integration of spectral filters makes use of those specifics for special measurements. For example, spectral ranges of thin PE foils can be excluded where they are highly transmissive – to say transparent. Like this only the radiation will be measured which is purely emitted by the foil itself. Based on its long experience in thermography InfraTec can support you in selecting the right spectral filter. The infrared camera systems of the ImageIR ® 5300 series can integrate a remotely controllable filter wheel which can hold up to four spectral filters. The filter position close to the detector can avoid warm aperture effects and allows for the usage of smaller and thereby cheaper filters in the infrared camera.

Measure correctly with an accuracy of +/- 1%

If your measurement object has a temperature of 18.7°C you will always measure 18.7°C and exactly this is taken care of by the infrared camera systems of the ImageIR ® 5300 series. You can rely on a correct thermographic 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 ® 5300 series at a frame rate of up to 12 kHz. 

Increase your flexibility by using the modular design concept

The ImageIR ® 5300 infrared camera series is based on a modular concept and allows for successive upgrading and changes of powerful components like motorized lenses or a high-speed shutter. Already in its basic configuration this model of infrared camera can be delivered with different detectors which support your application the best way. Like this you will always remain flexible and optimally adapt your infrared camera systems to your respective needs.

Control your infrared camera or your processes

You can include a trigger interface in your infrared camera of the ImageIR ® 5300 series which allows to clock external processes or devices with the frequency of the camera or vice versa. Thereby a synchronous operation is guaranteed, e.g. of various measurement devices. As the infrared camera systems of the ImageIR ® 5300 series come with a snapshot detector it is also possible to trigger the acquisition of thermal images by an external clock. Both trigger directions are optimally supported by the products of the thermographic software family
IRBIS ® 3 
which also takes care of an easy handling of the settings.
