Waterloo, CANADA ─ April 14, 2020 ─ Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies [NYSE:TDY] company and global leader in digital imaging technology, is pleased to introduce its latest family of LWIR cameras, the CalibirTM GXM series. Using Teledyne DALSA’s own VGA 17um microbolometer technology, Calibir GXM cameras offer exceptional infrared imaging performance, with great sensitivity, outstanding dynamic range for wide temperature coverage, and factory-calibrated radiometric performance. Calibir delivers accurate, repeatable results for critical applications like detecting elevated skin temperature.
“As a key component in a well-designed thermal imaging system, the new GXM640 can be incorporated into temperature screening systems. Its small form factor and architecture allows integrators to select from more than ten lens options and a wide range of output solutions,” commented Jean Brunelle, Product Manager for the Calibir series. “The Calibir GXM series will benefit many industrial monitoring applications requiring radiometric measurement such as welding, sintering, baking, smelting and firefighting.”
The Calibir GXM640 features both shutter and shutterless operation and rapid image output on power up while delivering uniform response over the entire operating temperature range. This makes the Calibir GXM640 ideal for thermal imaging applications requiring uninterrupted image acquisition. Teledyne DALSA’s own microbolometer offers improved Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) and the updated calibration includes customized gain correction on a per lens basis to offer even better image performance and response uniformity. These new and higher performing models will be useful for machine vision, where synchronization is required in an active inspection system, and in defense and security applications requiring low NETD and networked cameras.
Teledyne DALSA is part of the Teledyne Imaging group and a world leader in the design, manufacture and deployment of digital imaging components for the machine vision market. Teledyne DALSA image sensors, cameras, smart cameras, frame grabbers, software, and vision solutions are used in thousands of automated inspection systems around the world and across multiple industries including semiconductor, solar cell, flat panel display, electronics, automotive, medical, packaging and general manufacturing.
