HOOD RIVER, Ore. – Sierra-Olympic Technologies Inc. in Hood River, Ore., is introducing the Ventus OGI electro-optical gas imaging camera core for fixed-mounted and continuous-monitoring systems or in gimbals and enclosures for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The camera's midwave infrared (MWIR) detector array offers 640-by-512-pixel resolution at 15-micron pixel-pitch to detect and visualize leaks of gases such as methane, propane, and butane.

With a weight of 580 grams with lens, the Ventus OGI is a lightweight, low-power camera core with a special narrow bandpass cold filter in the miniature, long-life, closed-cycle Stirling cooler with an f/1.5 cold shield and an optimized lens.

Its detector, cooler, and lens combine with a selection of digital and analog I/O like Camera Link, Gigabit Ethernet, H.264, NTSC/PAL video, and RS-232/RS-422 serial camera control.

The camera is a optical gas imaging solution for inspection of fuel and gas lines, storage tanks, generators, drilling and production wells, above- and below-ground gas pipelines, terminals, railway tank cars, flare stack monitoring, as well as booster and pump stations.
