UTC Aerospace Systems launches low cost, 320-MicroSWIR™ camera, making Sensors Unlimited SWIR more affordable and more exportable

PARIS AIR SHOW, Paris, June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems introduces the Sensors Unlimited 320CSX, the latest in its line of MicroSWIR™ high performance short wave infrared (SWIR) video cameras. The low-noise, rugged SWIR camera provides customers with an unprecedented opportunity to get the size, weight, power (SWaP) and capability of a Sensors Unlimited MicroSWIR™ camera at a very affordable price, and without ITAR restrictions. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

This SWIR camera's performance, reliability and low SWaP make it ideal for use in a variety of industrial applications that include process monitoring, enhanced vision and persistent surveillance.

"Many of our industrial customers have been asking for a more affordable, small SWIR imager and our product design team did a great job of answering the call," said Bob Jones, director of sales for Sensors Unlimited.  "We're very proud of this new addition to the Sensors Unlimited MicroSWIR™ family, and look forward to sharing the experience with our customers."

On the front end, the 320CSX offers an industry standard C-mount lens interface, which allows it to adapt to a variety of commercial-off-the-shelf lens options. On the backend, the camera offers a modular output, which will initially provide RS170 analog video, CameraLink® digital video, and RS232 command and control, but may be expanded to offer other industry standard interfaces.

At its core, the 320CSX camera provides ¼ VGA resolution (320x256 pixels, 12.5 micrometer pixel pitch), weighs less than 55 grams, measures 1.25 inches on each side, uses less than 2 watts of power at 20 degrees C, operates from -40 to 70 degrees C case temperatures, and provides a range of features to optimize imagery in a wide variety of lighting conditions.
