ImageIR® 8300 hp


The infrared camera ImageIR® 8300 hp of the high-end camera series ImageIR® provides the requirements for high-speed thermography at the top level.
• Full-frame rate up to 355 Hz in the format (640 × 512) IR pixels
• Opto-mechanical MicroScan with (1,280 × 1,024) IR pixels
• Outstanding thermal resolution better than 20 mK
• Integrated trigger interface guarantees a repeatable high-precision triggering of quick procedures


ImageIR® 8300 hp

Next generation of Infrared Detector Interface
Boosts Camera Full-frame Rate

The new ImageIR® 8300 hp with InSb-MWIR focal-plane array photon detector of the latest generation with (640 x 512) IR pixel now allows 355 Hz full-frame rate. Thus, ImageIR® 8300 hp reaches a three times higher frame rate in full frame mode than previous camera systems in this perfomance category. In combination with ultra-short integration times ultrafast industrial processes or research tasks can be recorded and analysed with maximum detail.

The infrared camera saves images with following frame rates:

  • Full frame: up to 355 Hz
  • Half frame: up to 670 Hz
  • Quarter frame: up to 1,200 Hz
  • Line: up to 5,000 Hz

Like all camera models of this series ImageIR® 8300 hp reaches an outstanding thermal resolution of better than 0.025 K (25 mK, typically 20 mK) and was developed for most demanding operations in research and development and process monitoring fields. Its modular structure consisting of the optical-, detector- and interface section, makes the camera easily compatible to the related applications and for tailored configurations.

An integrated trigger interface guarantees a repeatable high-precision triggering of quick procedures. Two configurable digital in- and outputs serve as control ports for the camera or as generator of digital control signals for external devices. 

In combination with InfraTec´s thermographic evaluation software IRBIS® 3 professional, ImageIR® 8300 hp sets new standards as an efficient high-performance tool for demanding thermography studies. 


10 GigE Interface for a Strong Increase in Output

The new 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface of the high-end camera series ImageIR® opens this extremely fast transmission standard with a NIC specially developed by InfraTec. This works with optical or electrical transceiver modules that are easy to change and are called SFP+. For all models of the ImageIR® 8300 hp with their (640 × 480) IR pixel detectors this leads to a transfer rate in the full frame mode up to 355 Hz. Users can store large quantities of data to a computer easily and reliably.

Different 10 GigE fiber SFP+ transceivers allow transmission ranges of up to ten kilometers with the same low sensitivity to electromagnetic interference. A corresponding standard SFP ensures backward compatibility with the conventional GigE interface. This combination allows the ease of use of the cameras with the new 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface in existing systems - though at a reduced transmission rate.
