XenICs, a developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared detectors and customised imaging solutions from the LWIR to the visible realm, has introduced the Gobi-384, an uncooled microbolometer camera covering the LWIR 8-14µm. Gobi-384 integrates camera, DSP electronics and TCP/IP interface in a compact housing of 72 x 60 x 50mm2.
Gobi-384 combines a high-quality camera head, including lens, with on-board DSP-based control and communication, TCP/IP and CL, ample processing power for intelligent real-time image correction and recognition, as well as a video interface. Main application areas are thermal imaging in machine vision, R&D, medical, the automotive, maritime, and aviation industries, as well as non-contact temperature measurement and hyperspectral imaging. Other typical Gobi applications are in security, Enhance Vision Systems (EVS) and fire fighting.
XenICs bases its new Gobi-384 on an uncooled microbolometer array for high-performance imaging, delivering 384 x 288 pixels on a 25µm pixel pitch. Pixel operability is >99.9 per cent.
The camera works without thermo-electric cooling (TEC) and is shutterless, delivering the benefit of silent and uninterrupted operation. It is available with a variety of industry-standard accessories. Options with thermo-electric cooling and shutter are also available.
Image processing takes place inside the camera, using 16-bit ADCs. Gobi-384 is user programmable and offers full flexibility regarding system integration and customisation.
