MWIR Midwave Thermal Infrared Cameras

Midwave Infrared (MWIR) Cameras allow the user to visualize the Midwave Infrared (MWIR) band of the electromagnetic spectrum ranging from 3000 nm to 5000 nm (3 µm to 5 µm). The top 3 detector materials designated for use in the MWIR spectrum include InSb (Indium antimonide) and HgCdTe (mercury cadmium telluride), also referred to as MCT, and partially lead selenide (PbSe) and are capable of detecting temperature changes in the 0.018mK range.

MWIR thermal cameras are great for taking thermal measurements quickly. Often cyro-cooled, these cameras are perfect for extreme range detection and offer high sensitivity and contrast with little background noise. They are best used when the main goal is to obtain high-quality images rather than focusing on temperature measurements and mobility.

MWIR Applications

MWIR cameras are used in a wide variety of applications including optical gas imaging, precision, high-speed temperature measurements, military applications, automated thermal imaging, plastic film inspection, microscopy, long-range surveillance and lab / research applications.

They also have options well suited for marine and high humidity environments, as well as rugged outdoor conditions. Making them a top choice for airport perimeter security, vessel traffic monitoring and critical infrastructure protection.
