Electro-Optical test software
Universal & Easy-To-Use Test Solution
Infratest is a powerful software to test laser rangefinders, NIR and IR cameras, ICCDs, visible, and goggles.
Infratest acquires, displays and analyzes the video signal from all types of cameras based on video acquisition modules compatible with a wide range of communication protocols, including Camera Link, GigE Vision, LVDS, and all types of analog formats (CCIR, PAL, RS170, NTSC).
Additionally, Infratest manages the optical stimuli delivered to the electro-optical device under test through the control of blackbodies and visible/NIR optical sources and their accessories (collimator, target wheel, harmonization modules, etc.).
Infratest is able to run a comprehensive list of test routines for a full characterization of camera performances: alignment and harmonization tests, noise tests (NETD, fixed pattern noise, temporal noise ...), detection/recognition/identification range tests (MRTD, MDTD, TOD), spatial tests (MTF, FOV, distortion), ....
Test results can then be exported through different formats (.html, .csv, .xml, or .png).
Infratest Test Setup Synopsis
Infratest allows the user to set up multiple optical tests with a click, controlling external reference sources and acquiring camera video signal through standard communication protocols.
Software Versions - Features Table:
Noise Tests: Infratest characterizes the following noise features of an electro-optical device: (The device's pupil and field should be uniformly illuminated by a reference source to match the device's spectral range. EOI provides high-end extended area reference sources).
Spatial Tests: Infratest performs the following spatial tests on an electro-optical device: (Targets with specific patterns, depending on the test, have to be set between the reference source and the device under test. A collimator may be necessary. Check out EOI's catalog of reference sources, targets and collimators).
Range Tests: Infratest tests the full range of IR cameras: (Targets with specific patterns, depending on the test, have to be set between the reference source and the device under test. A collimator may be necessary. Check out EOI's catalog of reference sources, targets and collimators).
Visible Tests: Infratest automatizes the following tests to characterize visible and NIR cameras, and light intensification equipment: (Targets with specific patterns, depending on the test, have to be set between the reference source and the device under test. EOI can provide high-end reference sources and targets. Please contact us for more information).
Laser Rangefinder Tests: Infratest tests the following characteristics of laser rangefinders. (Specific laser sensors are necessary for these tests. Please contact us for more information).
3 NEW main features explained - INFRATEST (version 3.5.1)
- Wide field of view camera testing capabilities
INFRATEST makes simple and accurate the test of parameters such as distortion and FOV and the measurement of MTF and MRTD at the edge of the FOV owing to the automatic control of the orientation of the unit under test, which is mounted on a high precision motorized stage.Thanks to the combination of the high optical quality of our mirror based IRCOL collimators and the automatic management of the angle of sight of the camera under test, INFRATEST software provides accurate testing of very wide FOV cameras, even fish eyed, from visible to far IR spectral range.
- Smart control of liquid cooled blackbodies
INFRATEST software now includes a smart remote control of the temperature of DCN1000 blackbodies' cooling fluid.
The software also automatically defines the most appropriate temperature of the fluid with respect to the temperature setpoint of the emissive surface, saving time by changing the temperature of the fluid only when required.
- Background temperature simulation
Temperature sensitivity test of thermal imagers frequently requires the adjustment of both background temperature and target temperature.
While the simultaneous temperature control of several blackbodies is featured in INFRATEST for many years, the new version now takes into account the live measurement of the background temperature into the calculations of key functions such as MRTD thus extending the testing capabilities for the most demanding IR cameras.
This background temperature is simulated by special targets reflecting a secondary blackbody radiation.
