Thermal imaging is a non-invasive technique which when applied with specific stimulus provides a view into subsurface defects in difficult test samples. Inspection of composite aircraft parts is gaining wide acceptance in airframe manufacture and service. Advanced materials are finding their way into automotive and consumer products and thermographic NDT is a fast and wide area screening technique that is very cost effective.
Incorporating an uncooled 640x480 microbolometer detector array, the PV640LW Uncooled Infrared Camera delivers high resolution infrared images in the long-wave (8-14µm) spectral range. The camera is available with a variety of different infrared objective lenses and with either Gigabit Ethernet or Camera Link digital video output. Because of the PV640's short thermal time constant, the camera produces superior thermal images even while imaging fast moving objects.
Uncooled Infrared Camera System - ATOM™ 1024
The ATOM 1024 is the first commercially available high definition uncooled infrared camera, incorporating a 1024x768 pixel microbolometer array. The camera delivers extremely high resolution in an XGA format yet maintains a small compact size and low power consumption. The ATOM 1024's short thermal time constant produces superior thermal image quality even while imaging fast moving objects.

Cooled IR Cameras - IRE-320M and IRE-640M/BB
These high performance cooled infrared cameras have extraordinary sensitivity due to the use of cooled MCT infrared detectors. The cameras are available in several spectral response ranges, including the mid-wave (3-5µm), broadband (1.5-5µm), long-wave (8-10µm) and very long-wave (8-12µm) wavelength ranges. The cameras accommodate short integration times and high frame rates as well as a wide range of optics including wide angle, telephoto and microscope lenses.
Filters for Infrared Cameras
optical filters are perfect for many imaging
applications that benefit from blocking out-of-band
electromagnetic radiation while passing other
wavelength regions. These filters are normally
positioned in front of a camera’s objective lens
or between the camera’s lens and imaging sensor.
When positioned as such, the filters attenuate
(by reflection and absorption) out-of-band transmission
and transmit the desired spectral region. Constructed
of hard, durable coatings on optical-quality
substrates, these filters will withstand normal
cleaning and handling associated with any high
quality optical component. Custom filter wavelength
characteristics and sizes are available upon
