Sierra-Olympic Technologies, Inc. launches 10 µm LWIR with USB and GigE interfaces

Adding to its rising checklist of long-wave infrared (LWIR) imaging options, Sierra-Olympic Technologies, Inc. lately launched two new digital camera fashions designed round an industry-leading VGA decision 10µm pixel pitch microbolometer.

The Viento-10 USB and Viento-10 GigE present end-users and integrators common compatibility and out-of-the-box performance, because of the 2 customary interface choices (USB 3.0 UVC and GigE Vision® 2.0).

“The Viento-10 is the most recent evolution in high-performance, low SWaP long-wave infrared know-how,” mentioned Chris Johnston, Sierra-Olympic President. “Ten microns is the smallest pixel pitch LWIR in the marketplace, and USB and GigE interfaces make the know-how simpler to make use of and combine into a greater variety of methods and functions.”

With an industry-standard UVC interface, the Viento-10 USB capabilities like a webcam when plugged into a pc, whereas the GigE model is designed for customers preferring an ethernet connection and PoE versus USB. Software for each variations helps full dynamic vary, full body price digital video.

Three lens choices (7.7 mm, 15 mm and 20 mm) are at the moment out there, with a spread of further fashions in improvement. The sensor was developed in partnership with DRS Technologies. Sierra-Olympic is the unique North American distributor of DRS’s widely-used Tamarisk and recently-released Tenum 640 LWIR digital camera strains.

In addition to improved performance, the Viento-10’s smaller pixel pitch delivers elevated sensitivity and sharper imagery, a narrower relative discipline of view, and permits for smaller, lighter optics. It additionally operates at double the body price (60 Hz) of its comparable predecessors.

“This has confirmed to be probably the most delicate uncooled microbolometer know-how we’ve seen, with sensitivity beneath 30 mK usually,” Johnston famous. As a part of Sierra-Olympic’s broader line of Viento cameras, “the purpose is to offer standardized interfaces and acquainted indicators to assist ease integration challenges and make our prospects’ lives simpler.”
