R450 Series

Category: Cameras
Manufacturer: AVIO

The AVIO R450 series features a high resolution SR Thermal Image (960 x 720 pixels) and automatic recording functions.

4 models are available depending on your application. The AVIO R450Pro and R450Pro-D with a temperature range of -40 to +1500°C; and the R450 and R450-D with a temperature range of -40 to +650°C.


Wide Measurement Range (*R450Pro)

From room temperature to 1500℃, object temperature can be measured in one range without range change.


Onboard Super Resolution Processing Improves Thermal Image Quality Using 4x Pixel Count Enhancement

Multi-frame Super Resolution Processing is a technology that restores the details originally inherent to the object while enhancing the resolution, minimizing fuzziness and noise of the image.
This is accomplished by performing sophisticated calculations on continuous multi-frames of the image.

  • Standard: 480 x 360 pixels Spatial resolution: 0.87 mrad
  • Super Resolution: 960 x 720 pixels Spatial resolution: equivalent to 0.58 mrad (This increased resolution results from detecting a characteristic within all frames and aligning them to compensate for small vibrations such as those introduced by hand movement.)


Super Resolution Software Enhances Image Clarity

The "InfReC Analyzer NS9500" series analysis software with a SuperResolution "Sharpness" algorithm is provided as standard with the R450 series cameras. The Sharpness algorithm provides additional noise reduction and edge enhancement of the object's captured thermal image. This creates clearer images that easily show small temperature differences such as tiny cracks on a structure's wall or the patterns of a printed wiring board.


"Quick Panorama Function" Improves Synthetic Accuracy and Ease of Operation

The R450 series camera's "Quick Panorama Function" automatically captures a Panoramic Thermal Image at arbitrary sweep angles up to approximately 75° horizontally and 56° vertically, without having to take individual pictures. The Panoramic Image can be photographed as a JPEG file without using a PC and easily downloaded and attached directly to a report. The "Quick Panorama Function" improves synthetic accuracy by increasing the number of the frames used for synthetic images from maximum four frames to six frames over the sweep angle to enable capturing objects of various sizes.


Automatic Movie Recording By External Trigger Input (R450Pro, R450Pro-D models only)

  • Inputting of an external trigger signal to the camera unit enables analysis software to start movie recording automatically.
  • Data recording linked with test equipment and field facility is available without configuring I/O system.


0.025°C High sensitivity by new image filtering function "Denoising"

  • This product uses the latest noise processing technology developed by the NEC Central Research Laboratories to reduce random noise by spatial filtering and preserve the outline details of the object being measured.
  • The Sensitivity (NETD) of 0.025°C (at 30°C) makes this product most suitable for discerning slight differences in temperature in non-destructive inspection.


User-Friendly Operation

  • Tilting LCD monitor is built in for multi-angle shooting.
  • View finder is built in to maintain clear visibility when outdoors.
  • Easy shooting from any angle by FRZ/REC buttons placed in 2 positions.
  • 5 Megapixel visible camera adds clear visible images to thermal and visible "Side-by-Side Images" and "Fusion Images".

Picture in picture                                Side by side                                        Fusion

  • Temperature scale and focus are automatically and simultaneously adjusted by one button on full automatic function.
    Built in high-speed motor allows swift focus adjustment.
