Outdoor applications such as security surveillance benefit from the use of thermographic cameras due to thermal video not being affected by light conditions, making the use of these cameras very effective when using video analytics software. These thermal infrared cameras are also ideal for monitoring the temperature of critical equipment as they can provide predictive maintenance. The result of keeping an asset safe or avoiding equipment breakdown is significant ROI.
Our technical experts and Infrared Imaging Technology Centre can provide you with end-to-end project support from the initial design phase through production, along with the best-infrared imaging cameras available consisting of infrared automation cameras, infrared R&D cameras, infrared thermal cores and lenses, pan and tilt units, infrared security cameras, and video analytics and image processing, all to help you to strive in your unique application.

Automated infrared imaging cameras
By detecting hot spots on an object, you can act in real-time on problems that occur from critical industrial equipment and assets before they could become potentially dangerous or extremely costly. Sharply detecting problems that can commonly occur if not monitored regularly will help to prevent your equipment downtime and increase the safety of your staff. Implementing infrared thermal imaging technology will ultimately save costs and make systems and processes more efficient.
Common applications for automated infrared imaging cameras include process monitoring and control, asset management, quality assurance, and machine condition monitoring. Not only is selecting the right automated infrared camera for your application challenging but integrating it into an automation system can be very daunting. Our experts are on hand to support you through this process with the end goal of providing you with a high-quality, cost-effective solution to enable you to step into the world of automation.
- Monitor the quality control of a process
- Save costs with predictive infrared imaging camera maintenance
- Increase safety with early fire detection
Infrared R&D cameras
Infrared imaging cameras enable you to make non-contact temperature measurements for data acquisition, analysis and reporting. For many types of R&D projects, thermographic cameras have become the ‘go to’ tool for accurately and reliably obtaining temperature variations across an object or scene. It is crucial that you select an infrared imaging camera with the exact features you require for your unique application to ensure you get desired performance and results.
Our infrared thermal imaging solutions consider the variety of applications within R&D and the different specifications required including wide temperature ranges, temperature resolution, exposure time, frame rates, spatial resolution, total record time, field of view (FoV), data analysis, and superframing. Our industrial imaging experts can guide you from product selection to technology integration to ensure your project runs smoothly and you succeed.

Video analytics and image processing
Applying video analytics is an important factor for getting the performance required from your camera system. Video analytics technology processes digital video signals using an algorithm to perform desired functions. It is best applied in applications where intelligent technology is required to identify the slight differences between normal/common activity of an object and activity that would be considered uncommon or suspicious. These applications cover ISR, infrastructure inspection, and natural resource management.
Video analytics processors come in a variety of sizes and features, providing you with the flexibility to ensure you select the exact fit for your application needs. These analytics capabilities cover directional motion, adaptive motion, vibration removal, object removal, object counting, camera sabotage, abandoned object, loitering detection, stopped vehicles, and auto-tracking. The video analytics and image processing solutions we provide enable you to focus on the features which solely meet your objectives rather than developing the complicated video processing element. If you have specific requirements, we offer hardware and software customisation to ensure your solution is fit for the purpose.
- Low SWaP image processing boards for integration on aerial systems
- Infrared and visible image fusion
- Automatic video tracking
