IR detection aids nuclear research

Share this on social media:

Cedip Infrared Systems is to supply yet another IR thermography system to a nuclear research group. This time the European Fusion Development Agreement (EDFA) has ordered the system for its Tokamak Fusion Reactor, based in Abingdon, UK.



Cedip has developed a growing expertise in nuclear plant inspection, previously providing IR detection for the ITER project, the Torus Supra Fusion Reactor in France and other EDFA projects.

The system will develop Cedip’s Silver camera range to cope with the extreme conditions of a nuclear reactor, including intense magnetic fields. It will be integrated with the main data processing system of the JET Tokamak.
