Product Description

The near infrared CONTOUR M camera has a built in 4 inch display. Camera is designed for observation, registration and recording radiation in near infrared zone emitted by infrared sources such as GaAs IR LED, diode or solid-state lasers as well as for use in infrared microscopy, infrared luminescence, examination of documents, forensics, art restoration and etc.


The CONTOUR M is ideal for the alignment of infrared beam and optical components in infrared systems in the 400-1700 nm spectral region. With Built-in 12V external charger and battery compartment ensures longer and comfortable operation of device.


The CCD camera is based on a high-sensitive low-noise silicon CCD sensor and two-photon absorption phenomenon. Superior image quality is obtained with micro lens system and special coating layer on a silicon. The four-stage system of automatic control and superior anti-blooming feature allows operation in a much wider spectral range. The device can be used hand-held or with tripod.

Typical applications
