Thermal imaging cameras can be used for a wide variety of R&D applications. Until today using a thermal imaging camera was often the privilege for large R&D departments. With the extremely affordable OSXL-A35SC/ OSXL-A15SC and OSXL-A5SC thermal imaging systems are now bringing the advantages of thermal imaging to the test bench of every R&D engineer. The OSXL-A35SC/OSXL-A15SC and OSXL-A5SC models are not only extremely affordable, they contain both the hardware and software for analyzing and verifying your R&D projects. You will be able to visualize and measure temperatures in a non-contact mode. The OSXL-A35SC produces crisp thermal images of 320 x 256 pixels. Users that do not need this high image quality for their application can choose the OSXL-A15SC which produces thermal images of 160 x 128 pixels or the OSXL-A5SC which produces thermal images of 80 x 64 pixels. The OSXL-A35SC, OSXL-A15SC, and OSXL-SC5 are affordable infrared camera kits designed specifically for thermal benchtop testing applications. The compact packaging makes the OSXL-A5SC a perfect fit for the benchtop and allows for deployment in locations where size constraints are critical. They are available in a variety of pixel resolutions and can meet the spatial resolution requirements of most applications. Eliminate the guesswork, see heat patterns with the thermal imagery and extract temperature values from live or recorded imagery. This instrument has uncooled micro bolometer detector that is maintenance-free and provides excellent long wave imaging performance. The pixel resolution and optics are available in 80 x 64, 160 x 128, 320 x 256 pixel formats to achieve numerous fields of view. Versatile, compact, rugged, and lightweight with straightforward mounting that permits quick installation and easy movement for new application requirements. Plug-and-play compatibility, is an ideal system integration solution through GigE Vision and GenICam protocols, these cameras can be fully configured from a PC, allowingcamera control and image capture in real time. Fast data transfer and RJ45 GB Ethernet connection supply 14-bit images at frame rates as high as 60 Hz. Image and data acquisition can record thermal snapshots and movies with OSXL-ASC tools + recording and analysis software. GigE Vision® is a new camera interface standard developed using the Gigabit Ethernet communication protocol. GigE Vision is the first standard video interface to allow for fast image transfer using low cost standard cables even over long distances. With GigE Vision, hardware and software from different vendors can interoperate seamlessly over GigE connections. The goal of GenICamTM is to provide a generic programming interface for all types of cameras. Regardless of interface technology (GigE Vision, Camera Link®, 1394 DCAM, etc.) or features implemented, the Application Programming Interface (API) will always be the same. The GenICam protocol also makes it possible to use third party software with the camera. GenICam makes the OSXL-A35SC plug-and-play when used with software packages such as IMAQ Vision and Halcon.
