Resolve Optics now offers a radiation resistant inspection camera system based on the VT XLRAD-10 PTZ camera from its partner Dekra Visatec. The Model 357 provides close up pictures even in high radiation environments, with a motorized HD zoom lens (over a 10x zoom range) allowing to set inspection of hot cells and nuclear fuel rods.
This camera system uses selected non-browning glass to produce clear images without any yellow tint that may occur when using radiation resistant lenses on color sensors. The non-browning glass withstands exposure to radiation up to 100,000,000 radians and temperatures to 55° without discoloration. The Model 357 is a 2/3-inch format that operates at f/3.6 and delivers minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 770 nm. In addition, it can image objects from 1.5 meters to infinity, in which the lens can achieve high image resolution at full aperture throughout the zoom range without refocusing.
