Dione CAM Series new 1280 Thermal Imaging Core

  • uncooled shutterless microbolometer 1280 thermal imaging core
  • 1280×1024 pixels
  • 12 µm pitch
  • 16 bit Digital Video
  • NETD <60mK



Ultra-compact, uncooled 1280 thermal imaging core

The Dione 1280 CAM series is based on an uncooled 12 μm pitch microbolometer detector with a 1280 × 1024 resolution and NETD of less than 60 mK.

The camera cores are optimized for low SWaP (Size, Weight and Power). The Dione CAM 1280 thermal imaging core is both lightweight and small. It utilizes Xenics image enhancement for advanced image processing while keeping power consumption low.

All Dione 1280 versions have the same SAMTEC ST5 connector and are GenICam compliant.

The Dione 1280 CAM is available with multiple lens configurations, either M34 (Dione 1280 CAM M34) or M45 (Dione 1280 CAM M45).

The ultra-compact Dione CAM1280 thermal imaging core series find application in safety and security systems, as well as in industrial thermal imaging systems.

Benefits & Features

• State-of-the-art 1280 × 1024 microbolometer detector with 12 μm pitch
• Low SWaP (Size, Weight and Power)
• GenICam compliant
• Shutterless and uncooled operation
• Availability of multiple lenses adds flexibility to integration programs

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 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 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 cameras come with a standard hardshell case upon purchasing.
