Sierra-Olympic Technologies announces the new longwave infrared (LWIR) CX640 Thermography Camera. The high-value imaging system features a 640 x 480 uncooled imaging array with 17 µm pixels that operates in the 8 to 14 µm spectrum. It is specially designed for use in process monitoring, machine vision, benchtop, laboratory and OEM applications. The high-performane, affordable thermography system is available for purchase on the Sierra-Olympic website and with a wide range of optics and comes complete with all cables, power supply and necessary PC software.
Well suited for a variety of radiometric imaging tasks, the CX640 features onboard thermography capabilities with on-screen display of temperature data points presented on the NTSC/PAL analog video signal. Radiometric measurements range from -20° C to 650° C. Communication to the camera is achieved via either RS-485 or Ethernet with the camera displayig temperature information of up to ten spots, as well as two user-defined regions-of-interest (ROIs) with temperature-triggered hardware alarms.
The camera comes complete with a thermography analysis package for Windows XP/7/8 machines and has Ethernet data out. The CX640, with a 2x and 4x digital zoom, is ideal for benchtop thermographic analysis applications in education, government, R&D, and industry. The CX640 joins the previously introduced CX320 cameras; both can be specified with a variety of lens focal lengths ranging from 8 mm for very wide field-of-view (FOV) applications to 100 mm for narrow FOV, distant scenes. All lenses are 51.0 for maximum sensitivity.
