Jenoptik and InfraTec expand their strategic distribution partnership in the area of thermography and IR cameras

Comprehensive supply contract concluded for thermal imaging cameras
(PresseBox) (Jena / Dresden, ) The Dresden-based company InfraTec GmbH Infrarotsensorik und Messtechnik and the Sensor Systems business unit of Jenoptik's Defense and Civil Systems division have concluded an agreement for the manufacture and supply of Jenoptik thermal imaging camera technology in the upper single figure million euro range, thereby consolidating their distribution partnership. The expansion of the cooperation with InfraTec will enable Jenoptik to strengthen the position of its innovative thermal imaging cameras in the international competition by adding civil and military-related, national and international clients.

InfraTec is the exclusive Jenoptik distribution partner for thermal imaging and IR cameras worldwide with the exception of the North American and Japanese market and military applications. The new contract will mean the continuation of the success story of the cooperation arrangement between the two companies which stretches back nearly 15 years. It offers promising prospects for the future and secures a clear level of growth for both partners.

Thermal imaging cameras operate by using infrared heat radiation which is invisible to the human eye. They are used in industrial and scientific research, e.g. in the development of PCBs as well as in preventative maintenance for electrical equipment and systems. In recent years Jenoptik has successfully invested in the development of state-of-the-art, high resolution thermal imaging cameras for industrial and security technology applications. This is reflected in particular by the market success of Jenoptik's VarioCAM® high resolution camera family.
