The IR928+ camera system is a hand-held system that is supplied with a thermal imaging camera, a visible imaging camera, laser locator, and thermal- and visible-channel displays, allowing easy identification of thermal features. It has been produced to the IP54 specification, ensuring operation in harsh environments. On-board software functions, accessed via a set of thumb-operated keys, allow temperature measurements with sensitivity of less than 0.1°C. Object emissivity, single- and multiple-point temperatures, isotherms, max/min, and electronic zoom are all standard functions

The LW300 ringlight combines low angle and direct illumination to highlight defects on both highly reflective and nonreflective materials. Designed for the packaging industry, the LW300 can be used to inspect items such as plastic bottle caps with foil lining-the edge of the bottle cap is inspected with the low-angle light and the lining is inspected by the direct light. It features uniform illumination over an 80 × 80-mm field of view

Camera replaces obsolete systems

IMPACT T22 is an intelligent camera designed as a drop-in replacement for obsolete or underpowered vision systems. An extension to the IMPACT T-series, the T22 has an image-processing computer inside the camera, enabling it to be deployed without additional image-processing hardware. The IMPACT T22 is interchangeable with older, camera-based vision systems, enabling manufacturers to upgrade to achieve 100% real-time inspection while reusing existing optical and lighting components. It is a suitable replacement for both analog and digital systems
