OGI Camera Core Is A Lightweight

Sierra-Olympic Technologies’ Ventus OGI optical gas imaging camera core features a 640 x 512, 15-micron pixel-pitch midwave-infrared (MWIR) detector array, measures 146.6 mm x 70.9 mm x 73.1 mm, and weighs just 580 grams with lens. Designed to optimize the detection and visualization of hydrocarbon gas leaks, such as methane, propane, and butane, the camera core can be integrated onto fixed-mounted, continuous-monitoring systems or used in gimbals or in enclosures for unmanned aerial system platforms.

 

The OGI camera features a special narrow bandpass cold filter in the miniature, long-life, closed-cycle Stirling cooler with an f/1.5 cold shield and an optimized lens. State-of-the-art components including the detector, cooler, and lens design, combine with a selection of digital and analog inputs/outputs (Camera Link, GigE, H.264, NTSC/PAL video plus RS-232/RS-422 serial camera control) to make this camera core an ideal optical gas imaging solution for integrators and OEMs. Applications include inspection of fuel/gas lines, storage tanks, generators, drilling/production wells, above and below ground gas pipelines, terminals, railway tank cars, flare stack monitoring, booster/pump stations, and more.
