Long Wave/Thermal cameras (LWIR)

Our LWIR camera cores are ideal for surveillance, homeland security, object detection, industrial and scientific applications.




The Crius Series are true SWaP yet affordable thermal imaging camera cores. With shutterless technology, each Crius generates outstanding thermal profile. Among them, Crius 1280 is the most compact and lightest high resolution LWIR core ever, ideal for long-range observation and surveillance.

  • Highest resolution uncooled thermal core
  • Up to 60 Hz
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Multiple standard video interfaces


The Crius Series of uncooled LWIR camera cores offer an affordable solution in thermal imaging. With resolutions up to 1280 x 1024 micro-bolometer in 12 μm pixels and SWaP design, Crius Series offers an outstanding thermal profile enabling low-power consumption, agility of configurations and plug & play solution for medium to high volume OEMs and integrators.
