Available from Alrad Instruments are infrared cameras based on InGaAs and Microbolometer detectors made by VDS Vosskuhler. The NIR-300 camera uses a 320 x 256 pixel InGas sensor and is available with camera link or Gi
The NIR-300 camera uses a 320 x 256 pixel InGas sensor and is available with camera link or Gigabit Ethernet interface. The NIR-300 has a spectral response in the NIR area (0,9 - 1,7Âµm).
The camera has a 14 bit readout at 50 images/sec. It is suitable for a wide range of applications including near-infrared imaging, thermal imaging of hot objects (in a range of 150 to 800Â°C), imaging spectroscopy, laser beam profiling, sorting, semicondictor inspection, water or moisture detection, medical science and vision enhancement.
The IRC-300 camera is sensitive in the 8-14 micron region of the IR spectrum and can be considered for applications in automation, qualityand process control, and for scientific research and development.
The camera has an uncooled microbolometer detector, enabling it to resolve temperature distinctions smaller than 80mK in an area from 20 to 200Â°C @F/1.0. At a frame rate of 40Hz, the camera is said to deliver excellent, noise-free, high resolution images with 320 x 240 pixels.
