Developed for Axsys Technologies, a leader in high performance optical and motion control systems, the VU-80 camera system is a dual-field-of-view, short-to-mid-range thermal imaging system ideal for surveillance applications. With an integrated thermal imager, zoom visible camera and precision 360° positioning system, the VU-80 camera system is ready out of the box for plug-and-play operation.
ION’s primary challenge was to design and engineer a new camera housing system to serve as a common container for a number of internal camera designs/ configurations. To withstand the harshest conditions and comply with Mil-STD-810, the housing is fully sealed and protected by a special environmental coating. A steel hood provides the first line of defense from the elements, and an aluminum back plate serves as a heat sink.
