Sierra-Olympic Introduces Long-Range, Thermal Zoom Camera Family at ISC West 2018

The Vinden LR series of OEM cameras will premiere at ISC West, April 11 - 13, 2018, at Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, in booth # 9137.

HOOD RIVER, Ore. - April 3, 2018 - Sierra-Olympic Technologies, supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for innovative imaging applications, will demonstrate the new Vinden LR series of long-range thermal cameras with powerful continuous-zoom optics. The OEM camera modules have several zoom lens options that provide a narrow horizontal field-of-view (HFOV) as small as 1.5° without compromising image quality, optical speed, or sensitivity. It also features a highly-tuned, one-touch autofocus that is easy-to-use, with dependable operation throughout the zoom range.


The Vinden LR camera series features pixel resolution of 640 x 480 x 12-microns, high sensitivity up to 60 Hz frame rate (max.), and three, athermalized and parfocal continuous-zoom lens options between 17.5° - 1.5° HFOV. On-board functions include advanced image processing, video recording and storage (32GB), H.264 IP encoding, and Ethernet control connectivity. The OEM-friendly camera series is an ideal choice for integrators who design thermal and multi-sensor imaging systems for security, surveillance, military/defense imaging, and border, port, and base security applications.

Sierra-Olympics new longwave infrared (LWIR) long-range zoom cameras are non-ITAR controlled, and are available with a 25-150 mm, 25-225 mm, or 40-300 mm continuous zoom lens. For more information, please go to: https://www.sierraolympic.com/products/details/vinden-lr, or call +1 855-222-1801.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
