Share this on social media:

Sierra-Olympic Technologies (SOTI), supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for advanced imaging applications, announces the first in a series of affordable, uncooled microbolometer thermal cameras for industrial, machine vision, and general purpose thermal imaging applications. The new Viento 320 features 320 x 240 pixel resolution with a 17-micron pixel pitch.  Intuitive and easy to integrate into new or existing systems, the uncooled infrared camera has user-selectable NTSC or PAL analog video and simultaneous 14-bit/8-bit, Camera Link® digital video outputs.  Viento cameras include standard connector interfaces and standard mechanical interfaces which are absent in many other low-cost thermal imagers.

The Viento 320 is based upon the latest 17 µm uncooled focal plane array (FPA) technology.  Features include multiple automatic gain control (AGC) modes, including the industry’s best proprietary image contrast enhancement, (ICE™) and an integrated normalization shutter.  Nine different lens options are available, including 3-degrees 6-, 9-, 15-, 16-, 24-, 27-, 40-, and 90-degrees horizontal field-of-view (HFOV).  Camera control is via RS-232 or USB.  Applications include process monitoring, industrial imaging, robotics guidance, perimeter security, surveillance, unmanned vehicle imaging, traffic management, and more.
