NoxCam-Pola is part of the NoxCam series, sharing the same powerful NoxEngine sensor management, image processing and embedded recording as for all cameras in the serie.


NoxCam-Pola embeds a cooled polarimetric longwave infrared sensor, delivering within a single image, polarimetric information in four directions together with a crisp infrared image. With its high separation power between polarization direction, it provides real time, isochronous information never captured before.


Polarimetric information in known to bring advantages in applications such as Oil spill detection, Biometric security as well as NDT applications. NoxCam-Pola brings you the ideal tool for your lab and field evaluations.


Equipped with the first of its kind pixel-level polarimetric infrared detector, cooled by stirling engine, NoxCam Pola camera offers unmatched performance and flexibility in a reduced footprint, together with ease of use provided by on-board raw calibrated data recording, embedded control software and compatibility with industry standard analysis software such as Matlab® or ImageJ.


We only present general information in our product pages. Enumerating all the possibilities would make reading tedious. In addition, your project is definitely unique. It is important that we discuss it together. Contact us

Radiometric Measurement

Measurement Range

Typical 5°C to 300°C, Radiometric measurement ranges are optimized to fit your application requirements and can be set between sub-zero to up to 3000°C. A Radiometric measurement evaluation is performed for each user case. Noxant's Radiometric Measurements are compensated against temperature deviation.


Typical 20mK, it is indicative only as NETD value deviation is wide up on measurement conditions. NETD can be dramatically improved using the NoxCam HSi Synchronous Lock-in input.

Sync Input

Ultra low jitter input signal allows to synchronize the photon collection time with an external event, such as PLC signal, a rotation coder or a photoelectric cell.

Lens interface

Although we offer a wide range of lenses, we recognize that users may already own existing valuable lenses. We promote reusing them. To do so, NoxCam-Pola can be fitted with Industry standard bayonet interface or a M80 interface. It is also possible to fit it with a custom interface on demand.
