2. Equipment safety-related instructions
Handling
The VarioCAM® HD head is equipped with a highly sensitive uncooled microbolometer detector. The
object radiations occurring in thermographic practice do not induce any changes to the detector.
However, overloads exceeding a black body radiation of 1,000°C in the measuring ranges 1 and 2*, as
well as 2,000°C in measuring range 3* may result in irrevocable damages and must therefore be
avoided.
c
The VarioCAM® HD head must not be pointed directly into the sun or other high-radiation sources (e.g.
lasers) neither during operation nor when switched off, because this may result in irrevocable
changes to the microbolometer detector, the origins of which can be clearly demonstrated. The
manufacturer does not assume any warranty for damages caused this way.
Te
It is also absolutely necessary to prevent the sun or other high-energy radiation sources from
indirectly coming into the field of view of the VarioCAM® HD head through reflective surfaces!
When the VarioCAM® HD head is not in use, the supplied protective lens cap must be attached at all
times.
In
f
ra
The lens should not be replaced in rooms with high amounts of dust or moisture, because the degree
of protection is not provided for when the lens is removed.

Technical description
3.1
Functional principle
The VarioCAM® HD head is a thermography system designed for the long-wave infrared spectral range
(LWIR) of (7.5 ... 14) µm. The lens reproduces the object scene to a microbolometer array with
(1,024 x 768) and/or (640 x 480) pixels. The electrical signal of the detector array is processed further by
the internal electronics. In this, the electronics comprises all functions required for camera operation, such
as actuation of the microbolometer array, A/D conversion, offset and gain correction, pixel correction as
well as actuation of the interfaces differing according to the equipment.
3.2
Te
c
Operation is performed using the digital interfaces presented depending on the equipment. RS232*,
Ethernet* (GigE Vision)*, WLAN (IEEE802.11 a/b/g)*, Bluetooth 2.1/3.0 (IEEE802.15.1 class2)*, and
USB2.0* are available as interfaces. Specific software packages are required in order to use these
interfaces. You will find more information on the aforementioned in the description of the corresponding
user manuals.
Description of the functional units
Lens
ra
The camera lens collects the IR radiation in the field of view emitted by the measuring object and
reproduces this IR radiation on the detector array. Field of view (FOV, Field of View) and
resolution/measuring spot size (IFOV, Instantaneous Field of View) are determined at the same distance
to the focal distance f of the used lens.

The VarioCAM® HD head is equipped with an uncooled microbolometer FPA detector (uncooled Focal
Plane Array) with a resolution of (1,024 x 768) or (640 x 480) IR pixels. The individual elements of the
detector are microscopically small, thin-film resistors on extremely thin diaphragms arranged a few
micrometers above the silicon read-out circuit in an unsupported manner. The lens of the thermography
system reproduces the thermal radiation from the scene onto these detector elements and these detector
elements absorb this radiation. The temperature change of the detector elements resulting thereof results
in signals that can be analysed electronically, read-out line-by-line and column-by-column using a readout circuit.
In
f
The use of an uncooled detector ensures the quick availability of the camera function upon start-up
(starting time < 30 seconds) and continuous operation.
Detector electronics
The detector electronics supplies the BIAS voltages and further actuation signals required for detector
operation and ensures that the analogue output signal of the detector is pre-processed and digitalised.
Image processing electronics
With the help of an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) and up to two* processors, real-time image
processing with the following essential functions (depending on the equipment) is implemented:

The voltage level of the trigger signals from the VarioCAM® HD to the input and the output is 5 V.
The VarioCAM® HD head reacts to a low-high trigger edge. The trigger event causes simultaneous
marking in the header of the following frame (IR image). Within the IRBIS® 3 software, this mark is
analysed by the IRBGRAB.DLL implemented there and results in the corresponding data being saved.
The minimum width of a trigger pulse should be 10 µs.

Maintenance of the device
10.1 Cleaning of lenses and protective windows
The surfaces of lenses and protective windows are susceptible to scratching. Improper cleaning can
cause damage.
Lenses generally shall be treated so that cleaning is not required. Avoid smudging lenses by only
handling while wearing protective gloves, preferably made of cotton.
c
Do not clean the lenses and windows unnecessarily. If cleaning is unavoidable, clean the surfaces
only as intensely as necessary.
Te
At the beginning of cleaning, first remove dust and loose particles by blowing with filtered oil-free
compressed air (for example with a small bellow or canned, compressed air) or with a camel hair
brush.
For easier cleaning of adhering particles, please only use a clean, lint- and fibre-free cloth (unused
lens cleaning or microfibre cloth, wood-free pulp cloth). If necessary, add a drop of cleaning
solution (see below) to the centre of the cloth. Run the cloth slowly over the lens surface without
applying pressure. After wiping, both the cloth and the surface of the lens should be nearly dry,
meaning that no smearing or smudges should remain.
ra
For strongly adhering dirt or fingerprints, if necessary, a gentle uniform pressure may be applied.
For such instances, surgical cotton or cotton swabs may be suitable for use, in addition to the types
of cloths listed above. These can be moistened with a few drops of cleaning solution. Excess
solution should be shaken off before use by shaking the cloth, cotton or cotton swabs.
Wipe extremely slowly and only in one direction. Rapid wiping in multiple directions can cause
scratches. Use a new cloth, cotton or cotton swab for each cleaning.
In
f
The only suitable cleaning solutions are ethanol or methanol.
If smudges persist even after following these steps, please contact InfraTec service.
10.2 Calibration
The VarioCAM® HD head system was calibrated very carefully to the official normal with the
manufacturer, maintaining the measure connection in doing so.
We recommend having the calibration checked by the manufacturer or by another certified authority at
intervals of two years. This check should be performed in combination with the general maintenance of
the device with the manufacturer.
