Sierra-Olympic Technologies, supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for innovative imaging applications, showcased its new Vinden 75LR, an uncooled thermal imaging engine at ISC West 2018.

The OEM module utilises a longwave infrared (LWIR), vanadium oxide (VOx) microbolometer sensor and novel zoom optics to offer the highest LWIR imaging performance per unit, gram and volume.

This uniquely small camera engine offers a 5x continuous zoom lens with EFL from 15mm – 75mm, 640px x 480px resolution and 12µm pixel pitch, and a 60Hz frame rate for onboard recording and 32GB of memory, snapshot and video. The camera control is achieved via Ethernet or RS422/RS232. Video outputs supported are analogue video NTSC/PAL, 16-bit digital via Camera Link® and compressed IP video, H.264/MJPEG. The system features an advanced vision processor supporting industry-leading video enhancement algorithms such as local area processing (LAP), balanced histogram equalisation, image sharpening, and image de-noise with registration.

The lightweight (460gm) Vinden 75LR camera is designed for integrators to provide the best possible LWIR imaging performance in constrained mass and volume applications.
