80 x 64 pixels

In many applications, interesting information can be obtained about the temperature of objects. The thermal imaging camera modules VM-051 with 80 x 64 pixels resolution have an excellent price / performance ratio. They can be easily integrated into embedded systems via the camera interface.

The raw data from the thermal image sensor are processed on the camera module so that the application software receives corrected, real temperature values. The data output can be configured and adapted to the camera interface used. Additional functions such as range mapping (adjustable temperature window) can also be activated.

The camera modules are supplied complete with a permanently mounted germanium lens. The focal length of the optics can be selected. Further variants are available on request.

The thermal imaging camera modules can be connected to controller modules with a parallel phyCAM-P camera interface. A suitable Video 4 Linux driver is available for the supported microcontroller modules.
