640 x 512 optical gas imaging camera
The Ventus OGI is an industry-leading 640 x 512 HOT (high operating temperature) mid-wave infrared camera core designed to detect and visualize hydrocarbon gasses, including methane, propane and butane. The high-performance, low SWaP package is an invaluable tool for the oil and gas industry’s efforts to save time and money, increase efficiency, limit product loss, protect lives and reduce harm to the environment.
The Ventus OGI (Optical Gas Imaging) camera core brings together the very latest in detector, cooler and lens design. Available in optimized 25 mm and 50 mm lens models, they system is built around a long-life HOT MWIR detector with a special narrow bandpass cold filter in a miniature closed-cycle stirling cooler with an f/1.5 cold shield. The combination of these state-of-the-art components produces the smallest, lightest and lowest powered OGI camera core on the market, which makes it ideal for systems integration across a wide range of platforms and applications.
The camera is available with a choice of digital and analog inputs/outputs and serial or Ethernet camera control. Advanced image processing features include Gas Enhancement Mode, local area processing, dynamic contrast enhancement, noise reduction filter, foreground and background boost contrast, automatic gain and level control, 2x, 4X and 8x digital zoom, multiple color palettes and up to six calibration tables for different scene conditions.

Oil and Gas Industry
A valuable asset for monitoring and surveying drilling and production wells, fuel gas lines, LNG terminals, above/below ground gas pipelines, flare stack monitoring of burned & unspent gas and other oil and gas industry infrastructure.
Machine and Manufacturing
Provides valuable thermal imagery of equipment and infrastructure such as vent stacks, compressors, generators, engines, valves, flanges, connections, seals, terminals and engines.
Identify otherwise invisible gas leaks on sites such as container areas of barges and ships, railroad tank cars, tank farms and storage tanks.
Unmanned aerial surverying
Weighing in at only 542 grams with a lens and with dimensions of <150mm the Ventus™ OGI is ideal for integrating into gimbals or enclosures for unmanned aerial vehicle platforms or fixed mounted, continuous monitoring systems.
