A quantum leap ahead in the design and capability of longwave thermal camera cores, Quark® 2 provides leading-edge imaging performance and reliability in an affordable, compact, lightweight package. Available in 640 resolution with 17-micron pixels, Quark is designed for years of maintenance-free operation with high shock and vibration tolerance. Now, it offers a host of new features, including support options for 640/60Hz frame rates and a new suite of powerful image processing modes.

Longwave Infrared Made Small and Easy

  • Clearer Imagery with Edge Sharpening

    State of the art image processing gives this tiny imager outsized capabilities.

  • Featuring Active Contrast Enhancement (ACE)

    ACE dynamically adjusts scene contrast based on the relative scene temperature for flexible imaging with better results.

  • Information-Based Histogram Equalization (HEQ)

    HEQ automatically adjusts image contrast to let you see what matters most in a scene, and give you the image detail that makes a difference.
