Thermal Imaging Camera

OptoTherm (Sewickley, PA) has released the Infrasight RD320 thermal imaging camera. This camera utilizes a 320×240 uncooled detector array with <0.05°C sensitivity, and 16 bit digital Camera Link interface. The measurement temperature range is 0°C to 300°C. The camera captures and displays images at a rate of 30 frames per second and provides a pixel resolution of down to 70 microns. The Infrasight RD320 camera is used in applications such as product design, NDT, and medical research. The base R&D camera system includes Thermalyze LT image analysis software.

Near IR Joulemeters and Radiometers

The deltΔ NIR Joulemeter from Spectrum Detector (Lake Oswego, OR) provides near-IR spectral response from 0.9 to 1.7 um. The deltΔ probe plugs into an analog power module (APM) to mate with oscilloscopes and lock-in amplifiers, or plugs into a digital USB-based electronic module (DPM) to create a complete PC based energy meter. LabView software controls range, wavelength, trigger level, graphic displays. The deΔ NIR Joulemeter features germanium or In- GaAs detectors.

16 Channel Framing Camera

Specialised Imaging Ltd (Hertfordshire, UK) has introduced a 16 channel camera capable of capturing images at 200,000,000 frames per second with gating down to 5ns. Applications for ultra high speed multiple framing cameras include material studies, automotive, aerospace, high voltage electrical discharge research, plasma display studies, and microdevices. The SIM-16 framing camera offers the choice of 4, 6, 8 or 16 separate optical channels without compromising performance or image quality. An integral TFT monitor allows users to see what the camera sees in real-time.

Chip-On-Board Illuminance Sensor

Hamamatsu Corporation (Bridgewater, NJ) has introduced a chip-on-board-type illuminance sensor called the S10604. The RoHS-compliant sensor is ideal as an energy-saving sensor for large-screen TV brightness control, as a backlight dimmer in liquid-crystal displays on cell phones, and in other applications where the level of the ambient light is measured. The S10604, which has a package size of 2.0mm × 1.25mm × 0.8mm, is the same size as typical chip resistors.

Condensation Cured Silicone

A two part, condensation cured liquid silicone system called Master Sil 150 has been developed by Master Bond, Inc (Hackensack, NJ). It can be used for the potting and encapsulation of voltage regulators, high voltage transformers, as well as optical and electronic assemblies. Master Sil 150 has good thermal stability, excellent flexibility, a Shore A hardness of 40, and its elongation at break is 230%. Low viscosity ensures complete fill-in around complicated parts to provide excellent electrical insulation and resistance to shock. The coefficient of thermal expansion is 11x10-4 cm/cm°C and its linear shrinkage is less than 0.4%.
