The IA126 uses a QWIP 640×512 IRFPA detector operating in the long infrared wavelength region (LWIR). IA126 cameras are normally used with a Windows 2000 or XP PC for control, image display and other advanced features through a command and data link. However the IA126 can also be integrated into a user’s own system. The IA126 can be controlled with a basic control/configuration software, and can also run optional advanced RTS 1000 thermography software featuring live display and real-time storage.

Image can be directed to the PC VGA screen or to a CCIR/RS170 video monitor (such as a LCD monitor). When using the VGA display mode, the image is presented on a window under the RTS1000 program (optional). Real time tools such as spot, profiles, histograms etc. are available on the live image. The video image is compatible with either CCIR 50 Hz

  • F=25mm
  • F=50mm
  • F=100mm
  • F=200mm
  • 50/250mm bifocal
  • Customized lenses (including zoom lenses) are available upon special request.

The nominal aperture is F/2 or F/4. The average optical transmission is > 90% on full wavelength.


Control and Configuration Software
With control software, you can configure the camera”s frame size and rate, integrating time, NUC & PR (bad pixels replacement), gain and offset control. Also the image captured by the camera can be displayed and stored on PC through RS232 link and/or CamLink.

RTS1000 Software (Optional)
RTS1000 is a very useful software to generate live display and real time storage with realtime board. The software has many functions for display, analysis and store images captured by the IA126 camera. Below are some of RTS1000 software”s features:

  • Live image display
  • Digital Range and Level setup
  • Real time storage
  • Spot measurements
  • Profiles
  • Regions of interest
  • Temporal profiles
  • Color palettes
  • Image conversion to several image formats
  • ASCII data generation
  • Radiometric calibration functions
  • Focal plane array calibration and characterization
