IR Lenses For Immediate And Remote Detection Of Elevated Skin Temperature
In order to promote public health, many organizations and public venues are searching for ways to efficiently protect people from those who may have an infection. Ophir’s infrared thermal imaging lenses help provide a quick, inexpensive and non-invasive solution for surveying crowds and identifying people with elevated skin temperature who require further investigation. These thermal imaging lenses provide temperature readings of a wide audiences at the highest precision. They have been used effectively for the past two decades and were deployed successfully during the SARS and COVID-19 pandemics.
High Performance Optics For UAV Payloads And Drones
Ophir Optics group develops and delivers a wide range of IR complex lens assemblies with fixed, motorized focus, and zoom lenses to support UAV MWIR and LWIR imaging. These optics are designed to optimize the specific size, weight and power (SWAP) constraints of the UAV payload platforms for military, security and emerging UAV applications.
Optics For Automotive Night-Vision (NV) And Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
Automotive night vision systems and ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems) that use thermal imaging allow drivers to detect pedestrians and retain a clear view of the road ahead, even when vision is obstructed by environmental conditions such as darkness, smoke, or fog. For maximum performance and minimal collision risk, these systems must achieve high accuracy and allow for long distance object detection. The key to meeting these requirements is the use of high sensitivity and high-resolution optics – such as Ophir’s athermalized lenses.
IR Optics Optimized For 10 – 12 μm Uncooled Detectors
Ophir Optics Group delivers new optimized IR optics designs that match the needs of upcoming 10 – 12 μm uncooled detectors that must meet superior SWaP standards, enable a reduction in the size of the optical system, and provide a shorter focal length and a longer detection range.
IR Lightweight Zoom Lenses
The Light IR product family of lightweight zoom lenses are designed to ensure the smallest, lightest, and most compact lens solutions while achieving the highest levels of IR thermal imaging performance for cooled MWIR and uncooled LWIR cameras. They are ideally used for unmanned aerial vehicle payloads, drones, and other handheld devices.
