The IR-011 is a Mid-format thermal camera based on a state of the art 25um VOx thermal detector. Due to advanced analog power and control circuitry, the camera provides high quality analog and digital video outputs. Optimal power management flexibility is provided due to the advanced TEC control circuit offering programmable FPA temperature and TEC current. To provide NUC calibration the IR-011 features a fast and silent shutter solution with superior shock resistance, even in power off mode. The shutter holding torque is software controlled, thus providing flexible user-defined trade-off between power consumption and shock resistance.
Digital video streaming is provided through the 100Mbi t Ethernet interface. For video streaming and camera control on a Windows plat form, the IR-011 is shipped with a video streaming and camera control software API . This API includes a series of control functions that al lows easy integration with custom software applications. The IR-011 software API supports Windows 2000 and Vista.
For digital video out-of-the-box, the IR-011 is shipped with a camera control application for Windows 2000 and Vista. Basic control features include: Freeze/Live, Horizontal and vertical flip, Black-Hot/White-Hot , Color palettes control , Video recorder, NUC control , Histogram display, Automatic Contrast Enhancement, Gamma correct ion, digital zoom.
Analog video is provided through a Mini-BNC connector. IR-011 supports 8-bi t RS170/CCIR video and PAL/NTSC color video with 16-bi t 5:6:5 RGB color format . For 16-bi t color video, the color output is based on either a default palette or a user defined color palette.
For non-Windows host applications the camera can be fully control led through a serial RS-232/RS-485 inter face.
