Thermal Imaging InfraRed Camera

Extech Instruments (Waltham, MA) introduces its InfraCAMTM SD Thermal Imaging InfraRed Camera that enables the proactive condition monitoring of electrical systems to detect hot spots and avoid electrical failures. The InfraCAM SD provides an accuracy level of ±2% and a thermal sensitivity of better than 0.18°F. The 3.5-inch color LCD with Advanced Signal Processing offers sharp resolution, while the standard 128MB SD card stores up to 1000 Radiometric JPEG images. All 14,400 thermal pixels of each image can be analyzed using the included QuickReportTM PC Software.

Optical Design Software

Optical Research Associates (Pasadena, CA) introduces CODE V® 9.81 optical design software with aspheric lens tolerancing capabilities that are valuable in the fabrication of optical elements. The Fabrication Data analysis feature provides a way to visualize interferogram data on a lens surface, entrance pupil, or exit pupil, including the ability to see rotation and scaling effects. Functions have been added to the Partial Coherence analysis and TOR tolerancing features, which provide direct information about the critical dimension of the image, assuming a one-dimensional, partially coherent image, which is the standard design metric for microlithography.

Goniometric System for LEDs

Gamma Scientific, Inc. (San Diego, CA) introduces the RadOMA-LED Goniometric System for LED angular and LED spectral measurements. The system combines the RadOMA multi-element array technology with Gamma’s 940 LED measurement goniometer that has backside-thinned CCD detector technology. The instrument offers accurate luminous and radiant intensity, dominant wavelength, peak wavelength, color temperature, chromaticity, tristimulus, Lab/Luv, CRI, full-width-half-max, and beam angle, with a user-selectable half-power bandwidth for accurate binning.
