Opgal Launches the World’s Most Compact Uncooled Optical Gas Imaging Camera

Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd. announces the EyeCGas Mini, its first uncooled Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera designed to detect medium to large leaks. Available for Methane, SF6, Ammonia, HFCs, and more.

Opgal has embedded an uncooled thermal camera into a compact, feature-rich Android-based device designed explicitly for OGI applications. This lightweight and cost-effective thermal camera will ensure wider consumer access to tools for Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) applications.

Leak detection regulations are becoming more stringent. Opgal, a market leader in OGI solutions for over 15 years, was the first to market Android-based thermal imaging cameras in 2014. By combining these solutions, Opgal can provide an effective mass-market solution, ensuring people’s safety, protecting valuable assets and the environment.

The EyeCGas Mini optical gas imaging camera is a feature-rich device, including live streaming for real-time remote sharing, image fusion (visible and thermal cameras) for better localization and visualization of leaks, and built-in GPS. The camera also features thermography with a choice of color palettes, an operating time of more than 5 hours, and weighs only 600g (1.3lbs). EyeCGas Mini is an Android-based device that allows for the rapid development of new features. A simple upgrade procedure ensures the consumer always has access to the most updated technology. EyeCGas Mini is the ideal tool for technicians at remote sites and prolonged fieldwork.

President and CEO Ehud Dinerman stated, “This is the next big thing in gas detection since the establishment of OGI. As a global pioneer and world leader in the OGI market, we believe the EyeCGas Mini will fill a market gap and broadly serve the industry. EyeCGas Mini is part of the Opgal strategic plan to offer the Oil and Gas market enhanced and total OGI solutions and to support the growing needs for fugitive gas detection”.

EyeCGas Mini is the newest member of the already wide range of gas imaging solutions manufactured by Opgal. Other solutions include EyeCGas 2.0, a cooled intrinsically safe OGI camera, EyeCGas 24/7, fixed monitoring solutions, and EyeCSite quantification and alert software.

Opgal is open to partner with industry players to offer enhanced solutions through software-based applications for the new EyeCGas Mini platform and product line.

As part of the launch, Opgal will give away one free EyeCGas Mini; more details are available at this link
