NIR Camera Suits Scientific Research Apps

Handling a wide range of science and research applications, the Model SC2500-NIR near infrared camera covers a spectral range of 0.9 µm to 1.7 µm and combines thermal imaging and non-contact temperature measurements with data-acquisition capabilities. The camera integrates all necessary image processing electronics. Other capabilities include high frame rates, flexible integration times, lock-in signal processing, spectral filtering, and a Gigabit Ethernet interface. For non-contact temperature measurements, the camera is factory calibrated for temperatures from 400°C to 2,000°C in multiple ranges. Other features include a InGaAs detector with an array size of 320 x 256 pixels, full-frame acquisition rates up to 340 Hz, adjustable image windowing (down to 128 x 8 pixels) enabling frame rates up to 15 kHz, and a lock-in input feature to enhance signal-to-noise ratio in the camera's imaging, based on an image correlation process.
