Cascade Laser is now a Master Distributor for Sofradir EC, formally known as Electrophysics. We have been a distributor for Electrophysics since 1985 and we're now expanding our role with their new parent company, Sofradir EC.
LWIR Infrared Cameras are probably the most prevalent thermal imaging devices available today as a result of the introduction of the uncooled microbolometer used to produce a low-cost infrared detector having excellent performance. In addition, LWIR cameras are available that have remarkable sensitivity because of the use of high quantum efficiency cooled detectors.
Incorporating an uncooled 640x480 microbolometer detector array, the PV640LW Uncooled Infrared Camera delivers high resolution infrared images in the long-wave (8-14?m) spectral range. The camera is available with a variety of different infrared objective lenses and with either Gigabit Ethernet or Camera Link digital video output. Because of the PV640's short thermal time constant, the camera produces superior thermal images even while imaging fast moving objects.
The ATOM 1024 is the first commercially available high definition uncooled infrared camera, incorporating a 1024x768 pixel microbolometer array. The camera delivers extremely high resolution in an XGA format yet maintains a small compact size and low power consumption. The ATOM 1024's short thermal time constant produces superior thermal image quality even while imaging fast moving objects.
These high performance cooled infrared cameras have extraordinary sensitivity due to the use of cooled MCT infrared detectors. The cameras are available in several spectral response ranges, including the mid-wave (3-5?m), broadband (1.5-5?m), long-wave (8-10?m) and very long-wave (8-12?m) wavelength ranges. The cameras accommodate short integration times and high frame rates as well as a wide range of optics including wide angle, telephoto and microscope lenses.
