ImageIR 8800 is another top-level thermographic camera model belonging to the ImageIR high-end camera series. It is equipped with a cooled focal-plane array photon detector that provides a format of 640 × 512 IR pixels and operates in snapshot mode. Combining an outstanding thermal resolution of better than 0.025 K with very high frame rates of up to 14,593 Hz and extremely short integration times of only a few microseconds this camera qualifies for airborne biological and geological surveys, non-destructive testing and the analysis of fast thermal processes, which are related to large temperature measuring ranges. Its modular structure which consists of optical, detector and interface modules makes it easily adaptable to the respective application.
An integrated trigger interface guarantees a repeatable high-precision triggering of quick procedures. Multiple configurable digital in- and outputs serve as control ports for the camera or as generator of control signals for external devices. The optical channel consists of exchangeable infrared lens systems as well as application-specific apertures, filters and optical elements.
