The WinCamD-IR-BB has a vanadium oxide microbolometer-based detector, with a germanium window. To function properly, this device requires a vacuum. The germanium window allows for the 2 µm – 16 µm range; transmission below 2 µm is extremely limited. As such, we do not recommend usage under 1900 nm.

Yes! Customers without approved credit terms will be required to prepay for the order. Customers approved for credit can place an evaluation order by submitting a purchase submit a purchase order clearly labeled ‘Evaluation Order’. When the device ships, you will be provided with an invoice to be paid unless the items are returned.

To ensure a an easy evaluation, make sure to review the terms below:

  1. This is a 30-day evaluation. If purchaser needs additional time to evaluate product(s), DataRay must be notified as soon as possible to discuss possible options. After 30 days the product(s) must be returned in "like-new" condition or paid for in full.
  2. If purchaser is going to return the product(s) DataRay must be notified as soon as possible.
  3. If returning product(s), purchaser agrees to inform DataRay as to what did not perform as expected/required. Please be as specific as possible.
  4. All returns require an RMA# before they can be accepted for return. Purchaser must contact DataRay at to obtain an RMA# and form, which must be included with the return shipment.
  5. Any damage to the product(s) must be corrected, and purchaser agrees to be responsible for the reasonable repair costs.

We currently offer on-site demonstrations in most of the western United States, including: Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico.

We also travel to conferences and exhibitions several times a year. You can schedule a one-on-one demonstration ahead of time if you contact us. If you are in an area where on-site demonstrations are not available, consider an evaluation order.

Yes, Laser Induced Damage Threshold (LIDT) testing has been conducted for our attenuation accessories. Standard test method was substantially in agreement with ISO 11254. Testing results are provided upon request.

The Beam’R2 is a single plane scanning slit beam profiler, while the BeamMap2 is a multi-plane scanning slit profiler. The BeamMap2 has pairs of x-y slits at four different z planes. This allows for real-time multi-plane measurements such as divergence and M2 beam quality analysis. To equal the functionality of the BeamMap2, the Beam’R2 would require a translation stage. The Beam’R2 excels in small beam measurement, able to directly measure beams as small as 2 µm.
