Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) April 2, 2010—Sofradir EC, Inc. has introduced a product line of infrared imaging engines based on cryogenically cooled MCT infrared detectors. A variety of models are being offered that span the infrared spectrum, including short-wave SWIR (800 nm - 2.5 ¼m), mid-wave MWIR (3-5 ¼m or 1.5 - 5µm), and long-wave LWIR (7.7 - 9.5 ¼m or 7.7 - 11.5 ¼m) models. Because of their versatility, these engines are ideal for easy integration into a wide range of electro-optical systems, delivering exceptional sensitivity and resolution performance.

The Sofradir EC infrared camera engine family harnesses the full performance of the Sofradir Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) focal plane arrays while offering unique flexibility to meet the needs of any application or OEM requirement. The engines are available in mid-format (320x256), large-format (640x512), and megapixel (1280x1024).

The engines have a common connectivity and interface logic. The engine electronics include camera control electronics and a cooler controller board. The camera outputs corrected or uncorrected NTSC/PAL video and 14-bit digital data. Communication is over a serial (RS-232) interface. 14-bit digital data is streamed via LVDS or through optional CameraLink and/or Gigabit Ethernet. With optional optical mounts, optics, user interface panels, and housings, the engines can be customized to meet any requirement. In addition Sofradir EC offers a variety of software developer toolkits (SDKs) and command software modules for further flexibility.
