FAIRFIELD, N.J., 28 Oct. 2013. Sofradir EC Inc. in Fairfield, N.J., has introduced the ATOM80 low-cost thermal infrared imaging camera core for low-cost thermal imaging, building energy efficiency management, advanced presence detection including access control and people counting, thermography, and automotive safety sensing.
The ATOM80 electro-optical sensor consists of a microbolometer array with 80 by 80 pixels with high infrared sensitivity. The camera core is based on a ULIS Micro80P microbolometer.
The thermal sensor camera core bridges the applications gap for which single, quad or multi-element thermal detectors do not have sufficient sensitivity or resolution and where large format imaging arrays far outperform the application needs and costs, company officials say.
The ATOM80 has been designed to provide reliable information resulting in accurate spatial and thermal information from the observed scene. This increase in information results in significant improvements in the ability to detect, analyze and classify thermal scenes, officials say.
In intrusion detection for security systems, for example, the ATOM80 can scan a large area with one sensor to produce sensitive data. The ATOM80 delivers thermal sensitivity of less than 0.1-degree Celsius at standard video rates.
