Optical Gas Imaging Camera Core - Ventus™ OGI

The Ventus™ Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera core offers the very latest in detector, cooler and lens design for enhancing the detection and visualizing of hydrocarbon gas leaks.  Its advanced components make it the lightest, smallest, and lowest powered OGI camera in the market today.


The Ventus™ OGI camera core improves the detection and visualizing of hydrocarbon gas leaks such as propane, butane, methane, and numerous other gases. It is suitable for combining into enclosures or gimbals for fixed mounted, continuous monitoring systems or unmanned aerial vehicle platforms.

The Ventus™ OGI utilizes the latest high-tech 640 x 512, 15 μm pixel pitch “Hot MWIR” detector array with a special narrow bandpass cold filter in a small, long life, closed cycle, stirling cooler with a f/1.5 cold shield and an enhanced purpose-built lens to provide unrivaled thermal sensitivity. The Ventus™ OGI weighs just 475 g with a lens and with dimensions of 146.6 x 70.9 x 73.1, thus making it an easy choice for integrators and OEMs.

The Ventus™ cores are available with a choice of analog and digital outputs and inputs including Gigabit Ethernet, Camera Link, H.264, NTSC/Pal video and RS-232/RS-422 serial camera control. The camera core also has innovative image processing features such as Local Area Processing, Noise Reduction Filter, 2x, 4X and 8x electronic zoom, Foreground and Background Boost Contrast, Dynamic Contrast Enhancement, multiple color palettes, automatic gain and level control, and up to six calibration tables for various scene conditions.
