Precision Molded IR Lenses are used in SWIR to LWIR range.

January 26, 2015

Manufactured from chalcogenide glasses, Precision Molded Infrared Optics offer transparency from SWIR to LWIR with optimized thermo-optic properties. Centered and antireflective coated lenses are available as well as single- and double-sided aspherical lenses, up to 30 mm in size. Diffractive optical elements pressed directly onto lens surface helps achieve necessary color correction and athermalization. Read More

IP Cameras and NVR target entrance applications.

January 22, 2015

Able to monitor entrances with challenging lighting 24/7, IP Camera models include varifocal bullet, varifocal vandal dome, and fixed lens dome versions that offer full 1080p HD resolution at up to 60 ips, true WDR (120 dB), corridor mode, and IR illumination. Triple streaming and built-in PoE are also standard. Also available, XNR44P PoE-capable NVR automatically discovers and displays cameras. Ability to set camera video streams from NVR's menus negates need of laptop for commissioning. Read More

Acoustic Micro Imaging System inspects IGBT modules.

January 21, 2015

Featuring fully automated design, C-SAM® Model DF2400Z images and analyzes voids and other structural defects of power IGBT modules. Inverted transducer, placed beneath module, prevents water from reaching module circuitry. Once recipe for scanning has been defined, factory automation interface controls operation with no need for human attention. Because imaging is typically carried out before encapsulation, acoustic images reveal what type of rework is needed on rejects. Read More
