Wide Range of Products Offers Most Suitable Aerial Thermography Solution for Specific Application

Based on your specific needs of the object or area to be measured InfraTec will configurate the matching combination out of infrared camera systems, lenses, software and accessories. Both cooled infrared cameras of the ImageIR® series and uncooled devices from our VarioCAM® High Definition series with high frame rates can be applied.

Infrared Camera Systems of InfraTec with High Pixel Count and Special Lenses Will Display Smallest Details On the Ground

Aerial thermography with infrared camera

The high geometrical resolution of the available infrared camera systems allows for the detection of small details from a big height. Like this for instance animals can be surveyed without disturbing them in their normal behaviour. Also in predictive maintenance advantages come up. For instance power transmission lines can be monitored from a helicopter despite of their small thickness. The wide range of available special lenses additionally adds to positive measurement results.

Case Study

Inspection of High Voltage Networks

Aerial thermography with VarioCAM® HD head from InfraTec

Feeding of renewable energy and rising consumption peaks - operators of energy networks face great challenges in meeting the set levels of electrical power supply. The increasing network load asks for intensified predictive maintenance. Airborne inspections highly increase the efficiency of high power line monitoring. Also here infrared thermography provides advantages for the precise identification of problems at isolators and power lines by tracing and measuring of atypical heatings.

Complex Data Acquisition and Storage Provides for Easy Analysis

Thermal images and sequences of infrared camera systems can be further enhanced by other data. The tools from the software family IRBIS® 3 allow for instance to include images by fast high-resolution cameras in the visible spectrum or GPS data. Thereby also thermal images can be analysed much easier. Also automated tools for reduction of large amounts of data will add to this handling support.

Gimbal Systems for Helicopter Mounting

InfraTec offers various infrared camera systems for fixed mount use in airplanes as well as for integration into precision gimbals. Thereby, the infrared camera can be exactly positioned within a µrad range to track automatically. A handy remote control allows for camera operation directly via the control of the gimbal.

Gimbals, or gyro-stabilized platforms, have been used for many years as very effective systems for airborne thermography in the inspection of high-voltage power lines, pipelines and industrial plants, as well as in the search for energy and material pollution.
