Five-Watt LED G9 Lamp

MaxLite (West Caldwell, NJ) has introduced an energy-efficient replacement for 40-watt halogen T4 G9-based lamps. The five-watt LED retrofits easily into existing G9 sockets in decorative glass pendants, chandeliers and bath bars. Available in dimmable and non-dimmable versions, the lamp delivers up to 450 lumens with a 300-degree beam angle for uniform light distribution. With a 2.4-inch maximum overall length and 1.6-inch heat sink diameter, MaxLite’s five-watt lamp is TUV safety listed and may be used in non-enclosed luminares in dry locations. www.maxlite.com/products/led-g9-retrofit-lamps

Thermal Imaging Camera

The FLIR Systems (Meer, Belgium) A6700sc features a highly sensitive 640x512 pixel resolution Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector that produces temperature- calibrated IR imagery for research and science applications. A6700sc cameras have been designed to stream temperature-calibrated data over Gigabit Ethernet to a PC for live image viewing and recording. Using FLIR’s ResearchIR software, researchers and scientists can monitor, acquire, analyze, and share data. In addition, extender rings for zoomed-in fields of view make the camera perfect for imaging small thermal targets, and close-up lenses can detect spot sizes down to 15um per pixel. www.FLIR.com

Pyroelectric Detectors

LASER COMPONENTS Pyro Group (Olching, Germany) produces pyroelectric DLaTGS detectors - three series are available: One for users who would like to combine their detectors with their own electronics (LCDT-5000 series); the LCTDT-5100 series is designed for low-fre¬quency applications in the range of 10-100 Hz, and the LCDT-5500 type with a low-noise JFET is designed for FTIR applications. All detectors possess thinned-out ele¬ments and optionally feature an absorbing black coating with a low thermal mass that offers a wide spectral response at a simultaneously high speed. All pyrodetectors are available with different diameters of their active surfaces and rectangular and square shapes as well. Standard housings include TO-5, TO-66, and TO-37. www.lasercomponents.com/de-en/ir-components/ir-detectors/pyroelectric-sensors/

Four-Channel Intelligent LED Controllers

Saelig Company Inc. (Fairport, NY) has announced the LED-Warrior04, a 4 channel, intelligent, programmable LED constant-current driver with DALI, DMX512, and I2C interfaces on board. Other bus protocols or wireless options can be added via the I2C interface. For each of the four channels, the forward current and brightness of the LEDs can be individually and independently programmed. Current can be programmed from 80 mA to 1000 mA in 5mA steps. Brightness is controlled by internal 12-bit PWMs for each channel, allowing 4096 steps, with dimming down to 1/4096 or 0.024%. The high resolution of brightness control allows precise color mixing or calibration of multiple LED groups. The four 12-bit channels allow up to 281 trillion color hues. www.saelig.com
