HD Handheld OGI Camera
EP Editorial Staff | March 1, 2019
The GF620 high-definition (HD), handheld optical gas imaging (OGI) camera reportedly sets a new standard for detecting and visualizing invisible leaks of hydrocarbons, such as methane, and common volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
With four times the pixels of previous models, the camera helps inspectors survey for fugitive hydrocarbon emissions from further, safer distances than possible with lower-resolution OGI cameras.
The device is the company’s highest resolution OGI camera. Equipped with a 640 x 480 infrared detector, it’s calibrated to measure temperature, allowing the user to assess the thermal contrast between the gas and the background scene, and adjust it to improve visibility. It also includes the company’s high-sensitivity mode, which accentuates plume movement to improve detectability in low-contrast scenes. The camera additionally introduces Q-Mode, an automatic preset for use with the optional QL320 gas quantification system from Providence Photonics.
