Operator Console Recorder

Longwatch, Norwood, MA, has introduced the Operator’s Console Recorder, a software module that automatically records images being shown on multiple HMI or SCADA operator’s displays. The module takes signals directly from each HMI screen’s video software driver, so it records the actual video being sent to the HMI. The software can accommodate video signals from an unlimited number of HMIs to show what operators were watching at the time of an event or alarm.

Imaging Software

NorPix, Montreal, Canada, has released StreamPix4 software to view, control, and acquire images from single or multiple cameras simultaneously in the same interface. The interface provides a management console for cameras, simplifying setup, control, and acquisition from any number or type of cameras, both locally and remotely connected. The software can support an infinite number of cameras; the number is limited only by a condition wherein the combined data rate of the cameras exceeds the PCI bus bandwidth or the processor capabilities of the computer.

Product of the Month: Lenses for Hostile Environments

Marshall’s Industrial and Security Division (El Segundo, CA) has developed a new series of pinhole lenses designed to protect employees when monitoring high temperature and/or hostile environments. The V-ZPL-HITEMP-A and V-ZPL-HITEMP-B zoom pinhole lenses permit reliable monitoring in temperatures up to 1000°. The V-ZPL12 series pinhole lens, available with motorized or manual zoom control, offers a 4-20mm angle of view and can be used for situations when the camera must be hidden from view. The V-PL150C, V-PL200C, and V-PL300C long focal lenses are designed for covert operations and can be used when looking through walls up to 14.81" thick.

Shadowgraph Camera

The Specialised Imaging Shadowgraph (SIS) camera from Specialised Imaging (Tring, UK) enables high resolution digital imaging of ultra-fast events in ambient and low-light environments. Integrating this camera with an ultra-fast, high-intensity spark source results in a sophisticated digital shadowgraph camera that offers instantaneous access to data. Comprehensive triggering functionality enables the SIS camera to be interfaced with a wide range of triggering devices.

High-Power Titanium Sapphire Coatings

Laser Components (Hudson, NH) offers solid state laser coatings with high damage thresholds, including coatings for Q-switched lasers at 1064 nm, 532 nm, 355 nm, or 266 nm. Coatings for short pulse lasers at 800 nm also exhibit excellent damage thresholds. The damage threshold measurement values were determined using a 780 nm Spectra Physics laser, featuring 1 kHz repetition rate and 140 fs pulse length, according to ISO 11254-2.

Highly Aspheric Mirrors and Lenses

Optical Surfaces Ltd (Surrey, UK) can generate highly aspheric parabolic mirrors with off-axis angles approaching 30 degrees and focal lengths as short as 100mm. They can also fabricate high-performance aspheric lenses with tight tolerances. Excellent performance is achieved with low surface scatter (20-10 scratch-dig) and high surface accuracy (lambda/20). The complex surface profile of aspheres offers excellent correction of spherical aberration and reduces other optical aberrations compared to a simple lens or mirror. On-axis parabolic mirrors produce collimated reflected light and are used in applications that require very fast focusing and high energy densities. Off-axis parabolic mirrors provide an unobstructed aperture allowing complete access to the focal region.
