Nippon Avionics Co., Ltd


Improved high-resolution movie recording and full selection of lens

InfReC R500EX Series high-resolution,
advanced function, Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera now available

Exerting the power further in thermal design, test and evaluation of electronic equipment


InfReC R500EX Series high-resolution, advanced function, Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera now available

The InfReC R500EX series of infrared thermal imaging cameras improve on the InfReC R500 series cameras to achieve best-in-class thermographic recording at up to 1.2 million pixels (1280 × 960). These cameras were introduced to the market on January 27, 2016 by Nippon Avionics Co., Ltd. (Head office: Tokyo, Japan, President Katsuhiko Akitsu, and hereafter called Avio)

This new product doubles the speed of real-time data transfer to a personal computer (30Hz) for faster recording. A new "auto-record start" feature enables personal computer software to automatically start video recording by input of an external trigger signal to the camera, making it easy to record data reliably by interworking with test equipment or on-site facilities. New 21μm and 52μm close-up lens for temperature measurement of minute objects that cannot be measured with a thermocouple and a 3x wide-angle lens that provides 93° field of view to take advantage of the 1.20 million pixel resolution have been added to the lineup.

These new features for motion video and the expanded lens selection make this product a powerful tool for use in R&D of electronic components and other fields of research.

Avio continues to strive for a safe, secure and comfortable social environment by developing appealing products and services of even higher quality from the customer's point of view.

New functions and changes from previous models

1) Real-time high-resolution data transfer at 30Hz

  • The previous 15Hz rate for real-time data transfer to a personal computer has been increased to 30Hz in this new series for 640 × 480 pixel resolution (only when thermal image data is transferred)
  • The thermal image data for analysis is transferred together with the visible image data over a USB 2.0 connection. [*1]

2) Recording auto-start by analysis software[*2]

  • Input of an external trigger signal to the camera unit enables analysis software that is running on a personal computer to automatically start video recording.
  • Data can be recorded by interworking with testing equipment simply, without having to construct a system of I/O devices.

Recording auto-start by analysis software

3) Improved temperature resolution with latest image filtering (denoising)

  • This product uses the latest noise processing technology developed by the NEC Central Research Laboratories to reduce random noise by spatial filtering and preserve the outline details of the object being measured.
  • The Sensivity (NETD) of 0.025°C (at 30°C) [*3] makes this product most suitable for discerning slight differences in temperature in non-destructive inspection.

4) Three types of lens provide optimum measurement of minute objects and a wide measurement range

  • Two types of close-up lens for measuring temperature in minute objects such as electronic components have been added.
    • 21μm close-up lens (working distance of 22 mm, with a spatial resolution of 21 μm)
    • 52-μm close-up lens (working distance of 56 mm, with a spatial resolution of 52 μm)
  • A wide-angle lens that can image a 93° field of view at a resolution of 1.20 million pixels has been added.
    • 3x wide-angle lens

Using 21μm Closeup Lens (Resolution 21μm)

  • [*1]: When thermal and visible image data are transferred together, the transfer rate is 15 Hz.
  • [*2]: Only R500EX-Pro, R500EX-Pro-D
  • [*3]: With improved S/N
