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.

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

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.
