Xiris has been providing camera-based weld monitoring solutions for 25 years, but we’ve never been as excited about a technology as we are about High Dynamic Range imaging. By allowing operators to view both the super-bright arc region and the dark background at the same time, High Dynamic Range imaging provides productivity and quality-control benefits well beyond what Weld Cameras have been able to provide before.
The dynamic range of a camera refers to the amount of light variation it can tolerate. Standard cameras have a dynamic range of about 1,000:1, which means they can image a feature that’s 1,000 times brighter than the darkest feature in the image.
But that’s not enough dynamic range for welding, where the range of brightness can easily exceed 1,000,000:1. That’s why High Dynamic Range imaging is so important for Weld Cameras—with it, a Weld Camera can image a range of brightness greater than 1,000,000:1.
How can this technology help your company improve profitability?
To answer that question, we put together a short video on what the Xiris XVC-O Weld Camera with High Dynamic Range imaging can do—and how it can positively impact your bottom line. Take a look. We think you’ll be glad you did.
