July 15, 2015 – Hood River, OR – Sierra-Olympic Technologies introduces the Cox
CX320 Thermography Camera, an uncooled LWIR camera system for machine vision,
process monitoring, and benchtop R&D applications. The CX320 includes an uncooled
384 x 288 sensor with 25 μ m pixels, and radiometric
calibration from -20 º C to +650 º C over two imaging ranges.
The camera has Ethernet data out, and comes complete
with a thermography analysis package for Windows XP/7/8
machines. This combination makes the camera/software
package well suited for benchtop thermographic analysis
applications in education, government, and industry.
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/mean temperature thresholds, and send
hardware alarms to I/O lines on the camera. This allows the camera to be used for
continuous monitoring applications in industrial applications. When housed against
weather elements, the camera can be used for continuous monitoring of critical
components in power transmission and distribution.
The CX320 cameras can be specified with a variety of lens focal lengths ranging from
8 mm for very wide field-of-view (FOV) applications to 100 mm for narrow FOV, distant
scenes. All lenses are F1.0 for maximum sensitivity.
The new cameras come complete with the specified optic, a power supply and all
cables, plus all software and documentation. The products are available for purchase
online at www.sierraolympic.com , with various lens options, on the shelf, for immediate
