LightPath Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: LPTH) announced its selection by ULIS as a recommended supplier of thermal imaging lens assemblies for use with the new ULIS Micro80 Gen2™ thermal sensor. Based in France, ULIS produces one of the largest ranges of thermal image sensors in the world and participates in a global market for advanced sensors for smart buildings that, according to Navigant Research, will reach nearly $3.7 billion by 2020.

LightPath offers a customized selection of wide field-of-view lenses compatible with the ULIS Micro80 Gen2™ sensor. These sensors utilize LightPath's high-quality chalcogenide glass and operate in the 8µm to 14µm long-wave infrared (LWIR) waveband. LightPath's engineering team has collaborated with ULIS engineers to achieve the optimal balance of performance and cost for wide field-of-view lenses. Using chalcogenide glass, the lenses are light weight, passively athermal over a broad temperature range of -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C, and economically practical. LightPath's advanced precision glass molding expertise and proprietary tooling techniques enable a highly repeatable process that is scalable to high volume production.

"LightPath is pleased to have been selected to cooperate with ULIS, which has a reputation for high quality products," commented Steve Beninato, LightPath's Executive Director of Global Sales and Marketing. "As we strive to meet the needs of all of our customers, LightPath's advanced engineering and high volume production capabilities are increasingly being recognized around the world."

ULIS, a manufacturer of innovative thermal sensors for the surveillance, thermography, firefighting, outdoor leisure and automotive markets, announced the availability of Micro80 Gen2, an advanced functionality thermal sensor. The fully digital Micro80 Gen2 not only supports standardized interfaces (i.e. I2C and HSync/VSync clocking), it also contains a series of improved characteristics, which make it ideal for large-volume applications and for easy integration into assembly processes. ULIS' new Micro80 Gen2 multifunctional thermal sensor offers reliability thanks to the 80x80 pixel ratio. It can distinguish humans from animals or robots in all-weather and lighting conditions, 24/7 -- without compromising privacy. This makes it ideal for occupancy detection in connected buildings, amongst other potential applications.
