There are many factors to be considered when developing a solution that requires a thermal imager or infrared (IR) camera, such as the application, waveband requirement, minimum resolution, pixel size, and the ability to scale production. An element that will impact many of these considerations is the IR camera lens. This white paper offers 12 considerations when selecting the optimal lens for a thermal imaging solution.
The kit features a camera with a pre-installed 3U5MGXSBA 5 MP global shutter CMOS sensor with raw data serial output via a USB 3.1 (Gen 1) interface. It has an open architecture design and lets developers embed processing and software with the on-board ARM and FPGA.

If surface appearance quality is critical to your product, learn about a new manufacturing-friendly tool that allows you to establish numerical standards for and measure four conditions of surface quality: gloss, haze, image clarity, and BRDF including Canon’s new parameter “Scattering C20, C60.”
MTF is a quantitative and objective measure of the quality of an image formed by a lens or an electro-optical system. This measurement is appropriate for lenses of all qualities and can be calculated from lens design data, which enables theoretical and actual performances to be compared.
