Irisys Introduces 17 Micron Into Thermal Imaging Camera Cores to Expand Opportunities and Lower Costs for OEMs to Integrate Infrared

NORTHAMPTON, UK, and ATLANTA (June 2, 2014) – Irisys, a leading provider of thermal imaging solutions for the global security market, has enhanced its line of camera cores for OEMs with the introduction of 17-micron.

The new core now supports Pelco D protocol, which makes it easier for OEMs to integrate the thermal imaging module into their systems – and improves usability for the end user. And the use of 17um pixel pitch detectors lowers the cost of the modules over previous generations of detectors.

This combination opens the door for OEMs to utilize Irisys’ industry-leading thermal solutions as part of their security applications in more efficient, cost-effective manners.

“Thermal imaging cores offer consistent, outstanding performance across a variety of systems and devices,” says Andrew Rimmer, Irisys’ Divisional Director of thermal imaging. “The introduction of micron-17 into Irisys’ cores gives OEMs even more opportunities to take new innovation to the market while remaining cost-competitive.”

Featuring a compact enclosure and range of interfaces that include standard composite video, the Irisys series provides the OEM with an easy-to-integrate thermal core. Usable either in default mode or with external control, the unit affords the OEM flexibility in control of the camera features.

Its applications include night vision, security surveillance, CCTV systems, marine, security vehicles, handheld viewing systems and more. Irisys’ thermal modules are highly effective in zero-light conditions and, with the option of compact enclosure and screw-fit lenses, are designed to appeal to OEMs and systems integrators.
