New function “Automatic Movie Recording” by external trigger input *2

Reliable data acquisition

  • 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℃ (at 30℃) makes this product most suitable for discerning slight differences in temperature in non-destructive inspection.

Extensive optional lens lineup for various measuring scene

  • Variety of lens lineup makes play an active role in various measuring scene.

  • 21μm Closeup Lens makes it possible to measure very small object

*1: This increased resolution results from detecting characteristic within all frames and aligning them to compensate for small vibrations such as those introduced by hand movement.

*2: only R550Pro, R550Pro-D


User-Friendly Operation

  • Rotary LCD monitor is built in for multi-angle shooting.
  • View finder is built in to maintain clear visibility when outdoor.
  • Easy shooting from any angle by FRZ/REC buttons placed in 2 positions.
