Ceres V 640 and Ceres V 1280 have been announced by Xenics as new high-performance solutions for long-wave infrared (LWIR) cameras. The Ceres V family complements the previously introduced Ceres T family expanding the possible options for thermal imaging and thermographic applications, such as process monitoring, industrial machine vision and medical applications. These high-performance cameras also fit scientific uses.
Stable and highly repeatable thermal camera for the industry
The Ceres T family already solved a major issue for thermographic system implementations by providing a stable and highly repeatable measurement solution. Ceres V now delivers these high performances to all industrial and vision applications. In addition, the full LWIR industrial camera comes with SXGA resolution (1280x1024 pixels). Industrial customers will thus benefit from the high stability developed for the Ceres concept with the flexibility of interchangeable optics and access to high resolution for enhanced capabilities.
Industry benefits from the highest thermal performances
The Ceres V product family is based on 12 µm pitch uncooled microbolometer sensors. It is designed for industrial application and is proposed with CameraLinkTM or GigE. Compatibility is also ensured from a control/command and electrical interface perspective with Ceres T products. This simplifies any integration and enables upgrade or downgrade of the system with minimal effort. These products are also GenICamTM compliant which makes them very easy to use in industrial environments.
“Ceres V is the new reference for industrial thermal imagers and completes the already existing thermographic offer based on Ceres T” explained Marc Larive, Strategic Marketing Manager at Xenics. “Xenics’ LWIR portfolio now covers all the thermal applications. Moreover, Xenics proposes the high resolution on fully industrial dedicated thermal cameras”.
Users will benefit from the flexibility of Ceres V and will be able to change optics according to their needs among 5 Horizontal Field of View (HFoV) possibilities: 12°, 16°, 25°, 48° or 71°. Xenics’ user-friendly Xeneth GUI and its GenICamTM SDK complete the offer so that customers can spare time in integrating the camera and really focus on their added values: data analysis and process monitoring.
