Vinden Core series

LWIR sensor, continuous zoom optics

The Vinden Core series combines a 640 x 480 resolution uncooled long-wave infrared thermal detector with a selection of highly parfocal continuous zoom optics. As a paired-down sensor-lens configuration, Vinden Core models provide OEM and system integrators powerful, long-range thermal zoom solutions that are cost-effective and versatile for custom integration and applications.


The Vinden Core series continuous zoom thermal imaging cameras are cost-effective, highly operable CZ thermal imaging packages design for OEM integrators. They combines the best 17-µm uncooled thermal camera core with elegant, effective continuous zoom optics. The thermal imaging core offers industry-leading performance with digital and analog/digital interfacing options. The continuous zoom LWIR optics demonstrate superior parfocal performance, zoom boresight, athermalization, and repeatability. The Vinden EX line offers off-board image processors to provide encoded IP video streams, advanced image processing functions and additional interfacing options.
