Gobi-640-CL

High resolution uncooled thermal CameraLink camera

Easy-to-integrate smallest thermal CameraLink camera

The Gobi-640-CL guarantees to be the most versatile industrial camera on the market with excellent image quality, high thermal resolution (0.050C) and accurate thermal analysis capabilities. The advantages of a high quality infrared camera are now combined with the power of a CameraLink interface.

The Gobi-640-CL is perfectly suited for high speed imaging at full 640x480 resolution with high frame rates of 50 Hz. The camera comes with an industry-standard CameraLink interface for data transfer at full frame rate. In windowing mode the frame rate can even be further increased. This combination makes it ideal for instant, accurate and cost-effective evaluation of your thermal imaging. Using the Gobi-640-CL will bring your measurements to the next level of accuracy!

Need for customization? A variety of industry standard accessories are available.

Application notes
Thermal electronics inspection Xenics thermal cameras can detect heat defects in electronics before qualification, saving a considerable amount of time and money. The cameras can also be used for critical control of heat dissipation in a working instrument to optimize its life-cycle.
360° Perimeter Security FOVEA, a 360° surveillance system based on the Gobi-640, is an efficient and cost-friendly monitoring system to keep your property safe, day and night.
Haas Laser Technologies partners with Xenics Using a Gobi-640-GigE microbolometer camera from Xenics, Haas Laser Technologies, Inc. has developed a compact, all passive optical design laser beam analyser for focused laser beams from a CO2 laser with wavelength range from 9.3 to 10.6 μm.
Whitepapers
Thermal imaging for monitoring rolling element bearings To be reliably operated off-shore wind turbines need an assured downtime and maintenance pattern to keep costs low. A monitoring project carried out by the authors uses an infrared (LWIR) thermal camera placed in the drive trains of such turbines and focusing on their spherical roller bearings.
Laser beam profiling and infrared cameras In this white paper, we will address the general need for laser beam profile analysis. Further, we will briefly describe laser beam analysis instruments and give an overview of laser applications, in particular for infrared wavelengths.
