Thermal imaging camera XC600
High-resolution thermography system with PanoFold touchscreen
Top-class technology for mid-range prices
The thermal imaging camera XC600 impressively demonstrates that high-end thermography does not automatically involve high-end costs and that the price-conscious calculation of a flagship thermal imaging camera certainly does not have to be at the expense of the quality:
A trend-setting detector in the latest design accommodates 307,200 independent temperature measuring points, every single one of which is able to capture the measuring object's current temperature values at a rate of almost sixty times per second and to display them on the large 3.5 inch PanoFold touchscreen. This means four times more data than with a camera with 320 x 240 pixels resulting in a clearly higher measurement accuracy.
The XC600 furthermore features a very high geometrical resolution of 0.65 mrad, making even smaller problems visible precisely from a greater distance. This thermal imaging camera measures temperatures from -20 °C to +600 °C ‑ optionally up to +1,500 °C and visualizes temperature differences of only 0.06 °C.
With the XC600 anything's possible – because everything's already included
With this thermography system you'll benefit from precise real-time measurements in high native resolution, a stepless 10x zoom, a quick autofocus with laser precision, an integrated distance measurement function, interval shooting, IR videos and numerous measuring functions. The thermal imaging camera XC600, which is furthermore equipped with a high-capacity Li-ion battery for extremely long measuring operations, leaves nothing to be desired and is supplied ready for use in a hard-shell transport case including high-quality analysis software.
Visionary construction with cutting-edge technology
A prominent feature of the XC600 is its especially robust design which provides for long, failure-free operation even in rough construction site conditions. The thermal imaging camera in pistol-shaped design which is manufactured in the EU is fitted with rubber protectors on all sides and comes in a shock-protected, two-component construction with IP54 type of protection.
Robust camera, flexible image guidance: The innovative PanoFold display can be inclined by 180° and swivelled flexibly by 270° at the same time, which, with the XC600, prevents that any user has to bend or twist to check objects that are difficult to access.
Focussing on efficiency
The electrical focus of this thermal imaging camera can be optionally actuated via automatic function or operated manually, and with the digital 10x zoom of the X600 the measuring detail can be freely selected. Optional interchangeable lenses further enhance the range of possible applications.
The integrated laser distance measuring device is particularly advantageous for all measuring operations. If it is switched on in addition, the measuring distance to the object can be read directly on the display and, what is more, the measured distance is immediately adopted for the camera settings so as to permanently optimize the measurement accuracy. The standard equipment of the XC600 is complemented by the real image camera with a resolution of 5 megapixels and a photo lamp as well as the laser pointer for visual targeting.
For a better orientation the on-demand DuoVision Plus display of the XC600 additionally renders important details such as lettering or object contours visible during the measurement.
The equipment of the thermal imaging camera XC600 virtually leaves nothing to be desired
Liveview – to see means to know
All functions of the XC600 were geared to meet the targets of user comfort and working efficiency. The setting options for the temperature range (span and level) that are customary for thermal imaging cameras of this class do not have to be set in the menu of the XC600 first to then be checked in the live image, but instead can be configured directly via cursor keys and you can watch the change live on screen.
Fully radiometric infrared videos available on request
The optional IR video function of the XC600 – that can be used to transfer fully radiometric infrared videos onto a PC whilst the measurement takes place where the results can then be recorded and evaluated in real time – provides ideal conditions for a very thorough analysis of the measurement results. For instance, this function permits a detailed examination of the heat-up and cooling behaviour of electronic and mechanical components or other objects over a defined period of time.
Measuring display with enhanced details via 'DuoVision Plus'
The DuoVision functions integrated in the thermal imaging camera XC600 allow for a variety of live display settings during the measurement. The picture-in-picture display function DuoVision permits a combined presentation of both pieces of image information in different overlays on top of the display of infrared and real images.
What is more, the additionally available DuoVision Plus function combines the infrared image information with high-contrast details of the visible light spectrum from the real image camera for the real-time indication of an extremely detailed thermal image fusion on the camera display.
This facilitates a much easier orientation, localization and assessment during the measurement – accordingly, damages or deficiencies can be detected and assigned at one glance. Besides a great number of other functionalities the supplied software also provides a DuoVision function for an overlay presentation of documents.
Maximum user comfort as standard
The XC600 is provided with an unparalleled range of functional and equipment features. In addition to the features mentioned, the user can for instance store the images periodically. This function enables you to record a series of thermal images with a preselectable recording frequency, e.g. every 30 minutes. With this recording interval you can optimally document the thermal long-term behaviour of an object. Furthermore you can save audio comments via headset and Bluetooth right along with the IR image.
The XC600 sets groundbreaking equipment standards in its price range:
- Just swivel the monitor instead of twisting yourself into a pretzel: Unsurpassed PanoFold touchscreen ‑
can be inclined by 180° and swivelled by 270°, when closed it serves as monitor and keypad protection
- Advanced real-time thermal imaging camera with a native resolution of 640 x 480 pixels
(307,200) measuring points
- High geometric resolution of 0.65 mrad
- Quick and precise autofocus
- Integrated laser distance measuring device
- High-capacity Li-ion battery – lasts more than twice as long as a standard Li-ion battery
- Stepless 10x zoom – ideal to look at details even from afar
- Recording of IR videos – fully radiometric as well*
* Saving fully radiometric IR videos requires the optionally available professional upgrade (software dongle)
Unsurpassed PanoFold touchscreen
The PanoFold touchscreen is a top-shelf monitor unit and can be rotated freely in virtually any direction.
In addition to being used when folded inward against the device the PanoFold touchscreen can also be steplessly inclined by 180° and pivoted by 270°. Consequently, no user has to bend over or twist in any fashion just to inspect poorly accessible and not immediately visible objects. This is the function of the PanoFold touchscreen which ensures that optimum thermal images are taken even of measuring objects that are not within easy reach.
The device can also be operated directly using the touch function of the PanoFold display. When not in use, the display is simply protected by way of folding it up so that the monitor rests against the keypad.
Including high-quality analysis software
The software included in the XC600's scope of delivery is not only a simple transmission and display tool – along with every thermal imaging camera you also receive a professional range with numerous functions for the evaluation, organization and documentation of your measurement results.
The software's DuoVision Plus function further provides an option for the fusion of infrared and real images as contour emphasizing thermal images.
DuoVision Plus images that are generated and stored in this way combine the radiometric image information with high-contrast details of the real image and hence improve analyses and provide for still more professional documentation.
Expansion option for fully radiometric IR video analysis and recording on PC in real time
And with the optionally available real-time expansion, thermographs can transfer fully radiometric infrared videos from their XC600 onto a PC synchronously to the measurement and directly evaluate and record them there in real time using the software.
An ideal analysis option f.i. for the detailed examination of the heat-up and cooling behaviour of electronic and mechanical components or other objects over a defined period of time.
