Mobile Wireless Camera Remote Control

Even more Flexibility with Stationary Camera Systems thanks to the Removable Display

Stationary camera systems like an ImageIR® or VarioCAM® HD head are usually PC-controlled. Used is the standard data connection to a computer, on which the IRBIS® software takes over the imaging data acquisition and camera control. The computer display is used for visualisation.

InfraTec offers an alternative to this solution that makes the operation of the camera system even more versatile. An additional tablet PC is fixed to the camera housing for this purpose, allowing the wireless control of all camera functions. The power supply is independent of the camera.

Android or Windows tablets with preinstalled communication software are utilised. The scope of delivery includes a bright and high-resolution multi-touch TFT display for the reproduction of the native infrared real-time image. Further components are a robust camera-specific mounting, power supply and a charger.

The display solution allows access to all functions of the IRBIS® online control and acquisition software, delivered together with the camera. This means that an individual setup with regards to the measurement situation is possible if the PC intended for the data storage must be set up separated by a greater distance from the camera. But even when this is not mandatory, you have the option via the detached display to operate the camera unit very conveniently and independently of the computer location even at inaccessible capturing locations. In the twinkling of an eye, the display is removed from the camera housing and can also be used when it has been completely dismounted.

Overview of Benefits

  • Remote control of the camera via system operation, detached from the data PC
  • Cross-platform camera control via Windows, Android and Linux is possible
  • Extremely bright display, removable
  • Support of the camera unit

Due to the remote control option, the display is more than just an indication instrument. For example, it also allows the:

  • Selection of a measuring range and the optimisation of the image display
  • Adjustment of the motorised focus control and activation of the autofocus function
  • Selection of all measuring parameters, image frequency and storage intervals
  • Configuration of the optional trigger interface

Application Examples

The removable camera display expands the operating functions of ImageIR® and VarioCAM® HD head by further application options:

  • Camera use for critical test equipment for which the camera user must adhere to a greater safety distance to the measured object, as can be the case, example, in explosion trials or in nuclear research
  • Integration of the camera in or on machines for which the units must be directly on the device, but there is no space available for the operating functions of a PC
