Temperature Measurement


Thermal wizardry

September 2009 Temperature Measurement

The Argus SC is the latest generation of the highly successful Argus thermal imaging camera manufactured by e2v, UK, and has been specifically designed to detect the heat signatures of people and objects. The Argus SC can be used in conditions of zero visibility including complete darkness and smoke. Because the energy being sensed is heat rather than light, the camera can be used in both day and night operations. Due to inherent levels of infrared heat energy, people are easily visible to the Argus SC 24 hours a day and because Argus SC is very sensitive, detecting temperature variations lower than 0,05°C is possible. It is ideal for a variety of security and industrial applications.

The Argus SC is equipped with advanced features including:

* Enhanced dynamic scene colourisation (EDSC).

* Direct temperature measurement (DTM).

* SceneSave digital imaging capture – Argus can capture and store up to 100 images. These can then be viewed or deleted, using the on-screen menu.

* Captured images can be downloaded to a laptop/PC and exported in various formats.

* Backlit LCD display.

* Customisable start screen.

* X2/X4 zoom.
