Embla 1055

IRnova’s renowned and field proven 320x256 QWIP detector technology with tuned peak response (reduced filter losses) and inherent material uniformity offers best-in-class performance for 10.55 µm gas detection.


The Embla 1055 represents the industry standard when it comes to OGI detectors in the upper LWIR region. It is based on a customized QWIP design for maximum sensitivity at precisely 10.55 µm. It is a field-proven and widely adopted solution for detection of SF6 (sulphur hexafluoride) as well as ammonia, ethylene and numerous other gases. Designing state-of-the-art industrial optical gas detection and monitoring systems has never been so easy.


  • Optical gas imaging for any gas with absorption in the 10.55 µm range
  • Optimized for sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), ammonia and ethylene detection
  • Handheld and battery powered cameras
  • Mobile and stationary platforms
