Test and Measurement

Infrared Testing equipment

Since 1982, HGH Infrared Systems has provided leading-edge IR test equipment, to universities, research labs, manufacturers and test centres around the world. HGH’s Test and Measurement offerings encompass Blackbodies and Integrating Sphere based visible sources, multispectral collimators and software for Electro Optical systems testing, Focal Plane Arrays test benches and testing systems for NVDs or visible cameras.

HGH recently developed and launched the most advanced generation of Blackbody electronic controllersachieving an unequalled performance level.

Beyond the quest for technical excellence, we strive to offer a complete metrology service to our customers, by sharing our experience and best practices, proposing consultancy, training, and personalised commissioning for our integrated solutions.

  • Blackbodies

    Reference IR sources

    Blackbodies are reference sources used for testing infrared systems. They are required in industries for the calibration of pyrometers, infrared line scanners or cameras. In laboratories, they are part of test benches for the characterisation of complex optronic systems. 

  • Integrating Spheres

    The HGH integrating sphere sources are an international reference in terms of reliability and ease of use. They cover the UV, Visible and SWIR spectra and are adapted to all your testing needs for your electro-optical systems, thanks to their their uniform, calibrated and ultra stable radiation.

  • INFRATEST: Your Turnkey Electro-Optical Test Software

    Universal & Easy-To-Use Test Solution for Cameras & Detectors

    INFRATEST is a powerful software for testing visible, NIR and IR cameras, ICCDs, goggles and laser rangefinders.

  • Collimators

    Off-axis collimators and universal test bench

    The IRCOL and LICOL projectors are collimators consisting of an off-axis parabolic mirror and a plane folding mirror. 

    COPI is an universal bench designed to replace the multitude of specific maintenance tools by a single and polyvalent optronic test system.

  • BIRD - Universal Electro-Optic Test Bench For IR Detectors

    Calibration and test of IRFPA detectors:

    • Noise tests: fixed pattern noise, temporal noise, NETD responsivity, detectivity, 3D-noise, 2D-detectivity,
    • Dynamic range, linearity,
    • Non-uniformity correction,
    • Bad pixel localisation,
    • Spectral response,
    • Crosstalk, MTF.
