Uncooled LWIR camera

The Dione 1280 CAM is an uncooled LWIR (long-wave infrared) camera with high resolution of 1.3MP and small pixel pitch of 12µm. The camera is based on the Atto1280 sensor by Lynred. This robust and compact 1280 x1024  microbolometer array with small pixel pitch of 12 microns offers long range detection capability and high-quality wide field of view imaging while having the smallest packaging footprint in its category.

This also results in 40% longer range compared to standard 17μm sensors and 25% further range than 15μm sensors while delivering a sensitivity <50mK.

The Dione 1280 camera cores are optimized for low SWaP (Size, Weight and Power). The cameras benefit from Xenics image enhancement for advanced image processing while keeping power consumption low (approximately 2 W). A 16 bit digital video output (compatible with CameraLink, UVC and MIPI CSI-2) is available on all versions, via the SAMTEC ST5 connector. In addition, 2 lens mounts are available (M34 and M45), thus adding flexibility for integration in various setups.

The Dione 1280 is part of the Dione family which includes a shuttered version (mechanical shutter) as well as OEM module for advanced system integration.

Uncooled infrared detectors have become an excellent alternative to the cooled detectors and are much more commonly used in many commercial, industrial and military IR camera products. Since they do not require the use of a cryogenic cooling unit, infrared cameras that use uncooled detectors enjoy substantial advantages in maintainability as well as a significant reduction in the size, complexity and cost.
