Fairfield, NJ March 14, 2005 -- Remaining at the forefront of technological innovation, Electrophysics is proud to offer its PV-320 series of infrared imagers. Underscored by a host of state-of-the-art features, the PV-320 is one of the most technically advanced line imaging solutions available and is suitable for a variety of applications including temperature analysis, laser beam profiling, NDT, medical imaging and metrology.
A number of interchangeable lenses and filters are available for the PV-320 which further allows users to optimize the camera for multiple applications. The PV-320 comprises three distinct models, in the A, T and L series. The A series features a diffusing chopper and is ideal for high dynamic range or wide ambient temperature environment application, including outdoor surveillance. The T series features factory calibration for temperature readings up to 500¡ãC while the L series features an opaque chopper and a variety of detector window packages, which minimize fringing when viewing lasers between 1 and 16 microns.
"Unlike other uncooled sensors such as microbolometers, the PV-320's uncooled ferroelectric focal plane array offers a unique set of features that allows the camera to be used in applications outside the traditional 8-14 micron response window," said Chris Alicandro, Director of Sales for Electrophysics. "Users also benefit from the PV-320's plug and play capability as the USB 2.0 digital output allows the camera to be effortlessly interfaced with any laptop, PC or computer system."
With 0.08¡ãC of sensitivity and 2% accuracy, users can rely on the PV-320 to identify the finest thermal details giving them the ability to make steadfast, intelligent decisions based on their object measurements. The PV-320 is also the only broadband, uncooled imaging system available to professionals worldwide. Like all Electrophysics imaging solutions, the PV-320 is backed by a knowledgeable and dedicated customer service support staff that is unsurpassed in the industry.
Each of the PV-320 imagers boasts a compact [14cm (L) x 11.4cm (W) x 11.4 (H)], rugged, all-metal alloy chassis and incorporates L3's 320x240 (76,800 pixels) BST uncooled focal plane array running at video rate and delivering 80mK sensitivity. End users can also take advantage of the PV-320's USB 2.0 real time 14 bit digital output for direct connection to any PC or laptop. Software drivers for LabView?, C++ and Visual Basic are available to system developers to facilitate the integration of the PV-320 into a wide range of existing systems. In addition, Electrophysics also offers Velocity?, a real time image capture and analysis software package capable of time verses temperature plotting, data export and sequence .avi movie file creation.
Three versions of the software package are available to meet very basic camera control and computer display of real time thermal images to a full radiometric analysis suite of functions.
