Research and Development
Thermal imaging is used extensively in engineering and scientific research centers around the world. Key to the use of infrared cameras is often application-specific software that permits the detailed analysis of both two-dimensional images as well as arrays of image sequences. Thermal imaging provides insight into critical information about an object’s thermal and spectral characteristics. Thermal imaging has become an extremely valuable technology in many industries not only as an R&D instrument but also for test applications. Infrared cameras for these applications must be quite versatile, having wide object temperature range capabilities, as well as offer a variety of lenses and software.

Objective Lenses for C-Mount Cameras
Objective Lenses for C-Mount Cameras

Sofradir EC offers a wide range of lenses designed for 1" C-mount cameras and viewers. In general, the lenses feature manual focus and an integrated adjustable iris diaphragm. These lenses also feature broadband lens coatings making them ideal low cost solutions for imaging in the near-infrared spectral range with reduced flare and ghosting. A C-mount Extension Tube kit is also available for those applications requiring close focus and higher magnification. Also included are two quartz objective lenses that are suitable for imaging from UV through Near-IR range. These objective lenses perform well for monochromatic imaging in the noted spectral range. It is important to note that they are not chromatically corrected for the entire spectral range.

Optical Filters for Infrared Cameras
Optical Filters for IR Cameras

These 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 request.

Infrared Sensitive Beam Finder Cards

Easy-to-use tools for infrared beam-finding!

Sofradir EC's Infrared Sensitive Cards offer users of infrared optical devices an easy way to locate laser beams and estimate beam-size, troubleshoot problem areas and test infrared emitting devices.

These easy-to-use cards consist of an IR-sensitive phosphor material (2"x 2") laminated in clear plastic. After being exposed to room light (400-500nm) for about one minute (for activation of the phosphor), these cards will emit a visible glow when illuminated by near-infrared radiation. The intensity of the glow depends on the intensity of the infrared illumination. Applications include: laser beam finding, alignment and beam-sizing approximation, IR remote control troubleshooting, IR security system alignment and testing.
