HODDESDON, England, 20 April 2011. Premier Electronics Ltd. in Hoddesdon, England, is introducing a shutterless version of the company's uncooled CompactSec PZT low-powered thermal imager for security situational awareness applications in border security, airport perimeter security, industrial plant security, and other homeland-security uses.The CompactSec PZT infrared camera , which is based an a 384-by-288-pixel uncooled ASi 8-to-14-micron micro bolometer detector with 25-micron pitch, also could be used for night vision, predictive maintenance, fire detection, and other applications in which small space, weight, and power are important considerations.Shutterless technology enables uncooled infrared cameras to operate continuously in non uniformity correction (NUC) operations without image freezes. The CompactSec night-vision camera is tuned to 8-to-14-micron long wave infrared with sensitivity of less than 0.060 degrees Celsius.
Algorithms in the camera help performance in poor visibility, and an anti-blooming system prevents image flare. The camera has an electronic zoom of x2 and x4 for close up images of areas of interest, and a high-resolution graphics overlay helps users add features to the screen display.
The thermal imager can store as many as 50 still images, has standard video outputs, and has an optional LVDS digital interface. For more information contact Premier Electronics online at www.premierelect.com.
