Gobi+ series

High performance thermal imaging

Improved capabilities for high performance imaging

Gobi+ improves significant aspects of the Gobi camera, bringing increased capabilities to deliver high-performance thermal imaging.

Much like the Gobi series, this improved version comes in full 640x480 resolution. However, image quality is boosted through a combination of improvements to key attributes. The Gobi+ comes with frame rates up to 60 Hz, allowing for thermal imaging at higher speeds. This can be further increased in windowing mode. Higher pixel operability, as well as lower detector Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) of 50 mK, further ensure the delivery of excellent quality images.

Full flexibility in terms of system integration is possible with a wide variety of lenses and software customization tools. Interfacing can be done either through CameraLink or via GigE Vision. The camera retains its compatibility with industry standard accessories such as National Instruments and Euresys frame grabbers. 

Altogether, the Gobi+ offers optimal image performance while maintaining the compact form factor of the Gobi camera.

Whitepapers
Thermal imaging for monitoring rolling element bearings To be reliably operated off-shore wind turbines need an assured downtime and maintenance pattern to keep costs low. A monitoring project carried out by the authors uses an infrared (LWIR) thermal camera placed in the drive trains of such turbines and focusing on their spherical roller bearings.
Laser beam profiling and infrared cameras In this white paper, we will address the general need for laser beam profile analysis. Further, we will briefly describe laser beam analysis instruments and give an overview of laser applications, in particular for infrared wavelengths.
