Industrial strength infrared

For years, CCD cameras have been used in industrial process control applications to monitor web production processes. While these cameras can measure objects in the visible spectrum, the need to monitor or sort nonvisible defects in glass manufacturing, paper, and solar wafer production demands the use of linear infrared (IR)-based cameras. To address these applications, a number of different manufacturers offer cameras based on spot scanning detectors, focal plane arrays (FPAs), and linear IR detectors. Before choosing a camera for a specific web inspection application, however, a number of factors must be considered: the nature of the product inspected, how the product is being inspected, and the rate at which it is being inspected and thus the type of IR camera needed.
