Computer Package

The computer package includes the following items for hosting the Thermalyze software and retrieving thermal image data from an Infrasight camera:

  • Dell PC
  • Camera Link video board

Dell PC

The Dell PC and monitor specifications have been carefully selected to provide optimal performance while capturing live thermal images at 60 Hz and when performing sophisticated image processing and testing. Includes 25” LCD monitor (2560 x 1440 pixels) with soundbar, keyboard, mouse, and Windows 10 Pro.

CameraLink Video Board

The Camera Link video board is inserted into one of the computer's PCIe slots and captures real-time thermal images from the Infrasight IS640 camera using the high speed CameraLink digital protocol. Advantages of the CameraLink protocol over other image capture protocol (such as USB or GigE) include deterministic image capture timing and no lost frames. Includes CameraLink video cable(3m).
