Keeping track of critical temperatures— Jenoptik wins contract to supply infrared cameras

Jenoptik and InfraTec are continuing their successful partnership in the field of non-contact temperature measurement.

Thermography camera VarioCAM® HD

The recently signed agreement covers the supply of hand-held and stationary high-end infrared cameras and infrared lenses worth several million euros to Dresden-based InfraTec GmbH, to be made throughout 2020. Thermography users around the world benefit from proven technology and application expertise from central Germany.

The uncooled thermography cameras in Jenoptik’s VarioCAM® HD series provide detailed images of heat distributions and measure temperatures with high precision and without contact. Their high resolution and individual radiometric calibration ensure optimal quality of thermographic measurement data. The hand-held and stationary infrared cameras are used for research and development in the field of renewable energy or in the production of light constructional components, for example. They are used to detect heat losses or temperature anomalies, thus making an essential contribution to climate protection and production efficiency.

There is increased demand for thermographic cameras at the moment for use in fever detection at transport hubs such as airports or railway stations, where infrared cameras such as Jenoptik’s VarioCAM® cameras can be used to efficiently check large groups of people with the help of high-resolution non-contact temperature measurement technology.

This agreement between Jena-based photonics specialist Jenoptik and leading Dresden-based thermography specialist InfraTec GmbH Infrarotsensorik und Messtechnik represents a continuation of their existing partnership spanning three decades in the field of non-contact temperature measurement technology.
