Xenics Gobi-384 camera
Stemmer Imaging has introduced the Gobi-384 compact LWIR camera from Xenics to its product range. The affordable camera features an on-board digital signal processor for improved real-time image processing. The Gobi offers a high degree of flexibility in terms of frame rate, user interface and temperature range, enabling the user to adapt it to various industrial settings and tasks.
This compact smart camera can be fitted into industrial environments for process control and used as an IP network camera or directly connected to a PC or video monitor. Other applications include R&D and medical imaging.
Operating in the 8-14µm wavelength range, the camera can detect temperature differences as small as 0.05°C. With a 384 x 288 pixel uncooled a-Si microbolometer detector array, it is fully compatible with Thermography Studio software for dynamic analysis and recording. Thermography Studio features a library of powerful tools that enable the sophisticated analysis of thermal behavior for a wide range of objects and materials.
The camera offers flexibility of control and interfacing. It has both Ethernet (TCIP/IP) and Camera Link interfaces. A frame rate of up to 50fps can be achieved over a standard 100Mbit Ethernet connection. A software development kit supporting C++, Visual Basic, LabView or Linux allows flexible programming in an open architecture. The Xeneth Advanced GUI allows live image view, storing of digital images and movies, digital zoom and selection of a region of interest, as well as display of data, such as image histograms and line profiles.
