IRC’s new Niatros™ MWIR optical gas imaging camera cores, manufactured exclusively for sale by Leak Surveys, Inc., are among the most advanced cooled thermal infrared sensor packages produced today. Available in a choice of FPA formats, our Niatros™ camera cores are equipped with patented technology to optically image and detect hydrocarbon gases.
Our Niatros™ InSb gas imaging cores can be configured with a choice of closed cycle Stirling coolers rated for approximately 10,000 or 45,000 hours mean time to failure.
A wide range of both fixed focal length and continuous optical zoom lenses with auto focus is offered. Both camera and optics can be controlled through a single integrated communication interface. Niatros™ camera cores are available with a choice of digital and analog inputs and outputs including Camera Link, H.264, NTSC/PAL video and RS-232/RS-422.
Niatros™ is equipped with advanced image processing features including Local Area Processing-Dynamic Contrast Enhancement (LAP-DnCE) and a noise reduction filter to optimize the detection and imaging of fugitive gas emissions.
Niatros™ HD+, our 1280×1024 high definition MWIR imager, is based on nBn technology, the latest in high operating temperature (HOT) midwave sensors specifically designed for applications where a minimal footprint and low power consumption are important considerations.
