Borescope Camera

The FSC2 borescope camera from Schoelly Imaging, Worcester, MA, includes an integrated LED light at the camera head, eliminating the need for light cables in remote vision testing of small bores and other inaccessible areas. The small CCU features auto white balance, variable brightness control, AGC, and a custom window feature that fits the image to the camera chip. Outputs include composite video, S-Video, and a USB 2.0 digital port for capturing images to a PC. Probes are available in diameters ranging from 0.35 to 2.7mm, and can be attached via a bayonet quick mount.

Optical Replication

OPCO Laboratory, Fitchburg, MA, offers a replication process that duplicates the profile of a precision optical surface from a master. The process can produce a range of both ruled and holographic diffraction gratings, reflective and transmission holographic optical elements, and dual-wavelength gratings, as well as plano and conic sections. Substrate materials include glass, silicon carbide, ceramic, and metals such as beryllium, aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel. Additional mounting holes may be incorporated into a metal replica.

Data Converter

Pentek, Upper Saddle River, NJ, offers the CobaltTM 71620 multichannel, high-speed data converter that uses Xilinx Virtex-6 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology. This XMC module connects to HF or IF ports for communications, radar, and telemetry applications. It includes three Texas Instruments ADS5485 200-MHz, 16-bit A/Ds that deliver an input bandwidth of 350 MHz. A dual-channel TI DAC5688 800-MHz, 16-bit D/A provides two wideband analog outputs. Built-in 2x, 4x, and 8x interpolation filters and a digital upconverter translate real or complex baseband input signals to any IF center frequency up to 360 MHz. Four separate DRAM banks of 256 MB dedicate separate resources to I/O streams and processor requirements. The module may be optioned with QDRII+ banks, each 8 MB deep, to provide a memory resource for structures like data-streaming FIFOs.

Weld Inspection Scanner

Olympus NDT, Waltham, MA, has introduced the COBRA, a manual scanner designed to inspect welds in pipes with diameters as small as 0.84". It is used alongside the OmniScan® MX Phased Array flaw detector with the 16:128 module and OmniScan MXU software. It also features a low vertical profile to allow rotation around the pipe when adjacent obstructions are as close as 12 mm. The spring-loaded design can clamp onto carbon steel and stainless steel pipes of various diameters.

High-Speed Cameras

Photron, San Diego, CA, has introduced Range Version (RV) hardware that extends the normal operating temperature range of Fast-cam SA5 and SA2 cameras. The RV option includes two serviceable external fans that direct cooling air over the sealed camera body, stabilizing the operating temperature in harsh environments. The SA5 camera provides up to 7,500 fps at reduced resolution, and has a 12-bit, monochrome, 36-bit RGB color sensor that features 20-micron square pixels. The SA2 is a 12-bit, four-megapixel CMOS camera that delivers up to 1,000 fps at full pixel resolution (2K × 2K) and 1080 HDTV resolution up to 2,000 fps. This system is available with either a PL lens or a B4 lens mount.

Infrared Detector

A compact 640 × 480 17-micron infrared (IR) detector from ULIS, Veurey-Voroize, France, is designed for surveillance, enhanced night driving, and thermography applications. The detector’s 24 × 24 mm2 enables camera makers to gain increased resolution to 640 × 480 without requiring an increase in system size. It is lightweight (under 10 g), and consumes less than 0.160W of power.
