HOOD RIVER, Ore., 30 July 2015. Sierra-Olympic Technologies Inc. in Hood River, Ore., is introducing the uncooled long-wave infrared (LWIR) Cox CX320 thermography camera for machine vision, process monitoring, and benchtop research and development applications.

The CX320 electro-optical camera includes an uncooled 384-by-288 sensor with 25-micron pixels, and radiometric calibration from -20 to 650 degrees Celsius over two imaging ranges. The camera has Ethernet data out, and comes with a thermography analysis package for Windows XP and 7/8 machines.

The product also has on-board thermography capabilities with on-screen display of temperature data points output on its NTSC/PAL analog video signal. One implements a different camera set-up software tool with communications to the camera via either RS-485 or Ethernet, and the camera displays temperature information of up to 10 spots on the analog monitor.

Additionally, two regions of interest (ROIs) can be configured with high, low, and mean temperature thresholds, and send hardware alarms to I/O lines on the camera for use in continuous-monitoring industrial applications.

The CX320 cameras can be specified with a variety of lens focal lengths ranging from 8 millimeters for very wide field-of-view (FOV) applications to 100 millimeters for narrow FOV, distant scenes. All lenses are F1.0 for maximum sensitivity.

The cameras come with the specified optic, a power supply and all cables, plus all software and documentation. For more information contact Sierra-Olympic Technologies online at www.sierraolympic.com.
