Sierra-Olympic Introduces Cox CX320 Thermography Camera System

The camera has Ethernet data out, and comes complete with a thermography analysis package for Windows XP/7/8 machines.

July 54, 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 µm pixels, and radiometric calibration from -20ºC to +650ºC 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 delivery.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
