Sierra-Olympic’s New Thermography Camera System - CX640

Specially designed for use in process monitoring, machine vision, benchtop, laboratory, and OEM applications.

August 5, 2015 - Hood River, OR - Sierra-Olympic Technologies, manufacturers and distributors of advanced thermal imaging systems, announces the new, longwave infrared (LWIR) CX640 Thermography Camera. The high-value imaging system features a 640 x 480 uncooled imaging array with 17 µm pixels that operates in the 8 to 14 µm spectrum. It is specially designed for use in process monitoring, machine vision, benchtop, laboratory, and OEM applications. The high-performance, affordable thermography system is available for purchase online at www.sierraolympic.com with a wide range of optics and comes complete with all cables, power supply, and necessary PC software.


Well suited for a variety of radiometric imaging tasks, the CX640 features onboard thermography capabilities with on-screen display of temperature data points presented on the NTSC/PAL analog video signal. Radiometric measurements range from -20° C to 650° C. Communication to the camera is achieved via either RS-485 or Ethernet with the camera displaying temperature information of up to ten spots, as well as two user-defined regions-of-interest (ROIs) with temperature triggered hardware alarms.

The camera comes complete with a thermography analysis package for Windows XP/7/8 machines and has Ethernet data out. The CX640 with a 2x and 4x digital zoom, is ideal for benchtop thermographic analysis applications in education, government, R&D, and industry. The CX640 joins the previously introduced CX320 cameras; both 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.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
