Ceres V 640 x 480, 12um pitch new Thermal Imaging Camera, smaller, lighter

Compact, industrial thermal camera

The Ceres V 640 is based upon the Dione 640 OEM thermal imaging camera core with 640×480 pixels and 12 μm pixel pitch. The camera offers superior thermal imaging capabilities, thanks to the state-of-the-art microbolometer detector and on-board image processing.



The Ceres V 640 thermal imaging camera

outputs full frame images at 60 Hz via either a CameraLink or GigE Vision interface — all GenlCam compliant.

The compact size, excellent image quality and GenlCam compliant interfacing allow for easy integration in demanding industrial, scientific and security thermal imaging applications.

The thermal imaging camera comes either in a no-lens configuration (camera only with M24x0.5 and M34x0.5 optical mount), or with four different HFOV (Horizontal Field-Of-View) options: 8, 12, 24 or 50 degrees.

Our cameras are compatible with a wide variety of lenses.

We do not manufacture our own lenses, but instead offer a variety of third-party lenses that can be purchased directly from us. We guarantee compatibility for any lenses purchased directly from Xenics.

Cables & Power Supplies

Xenics develops flexible and modular thermal imaging cameras resulting in a wide variety of camera interfaces. All these interfaces require unique cabling which we keep in stock. Next to interface cables we also offer separate power supplies.


Xenics ships its infrared thermal imaging cameras all over the world in high-grade custom cases. As our infrared cameras have different sizes, we have several case-types in stock guaranteeing a tight fit. The cases are made of polypropylene which make them very sturdy. They are dustproof, watertight, stackable and can cope with temperatures between -40 °C and 80 °C. In addition they are equipped with an automatic air pressure compensation valve allowing us to ship the cameras all over the globe.

Most of our infrared thermal imaging cameras come with a standard hardshell case upon purchasing.
