The camera can be used both in industrial research and development and for quality control and preventive maintenance in the power generation and transmission, automotive, raw material extraction, electrical engineering, electronics, consumer goods manufacturing, automation and building technology sectors, as well as in the medical field.
The professional version of the thermal imager features an exceptionally high resolution of up to 3.1 megapixels. This device guarantees a high level of measuring accuracy when it comes to small details and is a true pioneer on the global market thanks to its high-resolution image sensors combined with Jenoptik’s optomechanical resolution enhancement technology. Uncooled infrared detectors based on microbolometer focal plane arrays are used as image sensors in the cameras. This setup, combined with our expertise in cameras, mean that the devices require practically no maintenance.
Launched in 2012, the VarioCAM® HD is the world’s first infrared camera to feature an image sensor in XGA resolution, integrated laser rangefinder, laser-based focusing and distance correction, as well as optimum depth of focus due to multiple focal planes. Thanks to its high spatial resolution and laser correction function, the thermal imager delivers extremely precise measurement results. It has a robust metal housing, and is both stable and durable. What’s more, the device guarantees optimum ergonomics and fits comfortably in the hand, even when used for long periods.

Infrared optics and lenses
For VarioCAM® HD and IR-TCM HD infrared cameras we offer a broad choice of lenses and converters suitable for various thermal imaging applications.
Each thermographic camera from Jenoptik is individually calibrated for the lenses purchased with the camera. If you are changing the lens, the camera automatically detects the lens type and selects the corresponding calibration profile.
Lenses are available either with IP54 proof bayonet mount or with IP67 proof thread mount.
All lenses are manufactured by Jenoptik and come with sophisticated optical coating, for example anti-reflective coating or spectral-selective interference filters. Depending on lens type or focal length, some lenses are additionally coated with a highly resistant DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating for special surface protection.
