The Telops SPARK family of cooled MWIR thermography cameras is designed to provide the IR imaging capabilities for which Telops is renowned at an affordable price. Available in both VGA and HD detector formats, SPARK cameras can be configured to meet your specific measurement requirements.

All SPARK cameras feature Telops’ unique permanent radiometric calibration and Automatic Exposure Control (AEC) operating mode.


Telops proprietary permanent radiometric calibration eliminates the need for the user to acquire reference blackbody measurements when changing camera operating parameters. Calibrated data can be displayed in units of radiometric temperature (°C), in-band radiance (W sr-1 m-2), or in-band irradiance (W m-2).
The calibration is valid for any exposure time supported by the detector, enabling advanced features such as Automatic Exposure Control and Enhanced High-Dynamic-Range Imaging.

High-performance electronics enable the acquisition of full-frame thermal images at rates of up to 220 fps.
Detector subwindows can be used to increase the frame rate over 4 000 fps.

Up to 1 GB rotating buffer memory for reliable recording of high-speed events.

Minimum detectable temperature differences as low as 20 mK.

Here is one example. Here you can see the Stromboli volcano (in Italy) in eruption. A team of scientists from Telops and from the Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans of the Université Blaise-Pascal, in France, climbed the active Stromboli in 2017 to take measurements and conduct research on different indicators of imminent eruptions.

Located in Quebec City, Canada, Telops designs and manufactures high-performance hyperspectral imaging systems and infrared thermography cameras for defence, industrial, and academic research applications. Telops also offers R&D services for optical systems technology development in order to respond to the specific needs of its customers.

Since its beginnings in 2000, Telops has distinguished itself with the quality of its personnel and its innovative approach to the technological challenges of the optics and photonics field. Today, the expertise of its scientists, engineers and technicians and the performance of its infrared cameras and hyperspectral imagers are internationally recognized.
