The new Vinden 75LR is an uncooled thermal imaging engine. The OEM module utilizes a longwave infrared (LWIR), vanadium oxide (VOx) microbolometer sensor and novel zoom optics to offer the highest LWIR imaging performance per unit, per gram and volume. This uniquely small camera engine offers a 5x continuous zoom lens with EFL from 15 - 75 mm, 640 x 480 pixel resolution and 12 µm pixel pitch, and a 60 Hz frame rate for on-board recording and 32 GB of memory, snapshot and video. The camera control is achieved via Ethernet or RS422/RS232. Video outputs supported are analog video NTSC/PAL, 16-bit digital via Camera Link® and compressed IP video, H.264/MJPEG. The system features an advanced vision processor supporting industry-leading video enhancement algorithms such as local area processing (LAP), balanced histogram equalization, image sharpening, and image de-noise with registration.The lightweight (460 gm) Vinden 75LR camera is designed for integrators to provide the best possible LWIR imaging performance in constrained mass and volume applications.
