January 31, 2008, Waterbeach, Cambridge, England--Thermoteknix announces the release of the MIRICLE 110K-25 thermal imaging camera incorporating new 25-µm detector technology with optional super-sensitivity modes in a smaller, lighter package.

The MIRICLE 110K-25 is a new member of the MIRICLE 110K 384 x 288 miniature infrared camera and core family, adding to the existing 35-µm detector range. Both 35- and 25-µm cameras use 384 x 288 uncooled microbolometer focal plane array (FPA) detectors and are sensitive in the longwave Infrared (7-14 µm) band. The MIRICLE 110K-35 and MIRICLE 110K-25 operate without thermoelectric-cooler (TEC) stabilization and are also available with Thermoteknix unique proprietary shutterless MIRICLE XTi models for uninterrupted, instant-on, high-performance thermal imaging.

With a smaller sensor pitch, the thermal sensitivity and response time of the new 25-µm MIRICLE models achieve greater than 60 mK at 27ºC and 7 ms time constant performance at 50/60 Hz. The MIRICLE 110K-25 is available with optional super-sensitivity mode offering up to 10 to 35 mK noise-equivalent difference of temperature (NEDT) for selected applications where small temperature difference or long-range detection are needed.

The reduced pixel pitch of the MIRICLE 110K-25 enables smaller, lightweight optics to be used and allows increased detection range for a given focal length compared to larger pitch detectors. With a fully assembled weight of 85 g (without lens) the MIRICLE 110K-25 is ideal for unmanned aerial vehicle and field portable applications.
