The AVIO R550 series is a high resolution, high speed, professional handheld thermal imaging camera. It has many significant features. Firstly the high speed sampling (e.g. up to 120Hz for the R550Pro model) which is the highest speed sampling in the portable VGA class equipment (as of August 2018). Secondly it benefits from a high resolution 1.2MP SR Thermal Image (1280 x 960 pixels) and lastly, features automatic recording functions.

2 models are available depending on your application. The AVIO R550Pro with a temperature range of -40 to +2000°C makes this model ideal for R&D, whilst the R550 with a temperature range of -40 to +650°C is ideal for electrical inspection applications.

*1  Only in the Range 1 at the environmental temperature from 20℃ to 30℃. (In other condition: ±2℃ or ±2%)

*2  Windowing ‘Mode W1(640×240)’

*3  Windowing ‘Mode W2(640×120)’

*4  Still image only

*5  This increased resolution results from detecting characteristic within all frames acquired by the SR process and removing such effects as those caused by hand vibration.

*6  For temperature accuracy: 30 cm to infinity

*7  Thermal image only when image transfer speed at 30Hz.

*8  In order to transfer Thermal image movie data by R550 / R550-D, you need to upgrade to "InfReC Analyzer NS9500 Professional" (optional software).
