Sensors Unlimited launches CE-certified compact, large-format SWIR camera

Sensors Unlimited – Goodrich ISR Systems of Princeton, NJ, USA has launched the SU640KTS compact, large-format indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) high-resolution shortwave infrared (SWIR) snapshot video camera, to be displayed at booth #811 at next week’s SPIE’s Photonics West 2011 exhibition in San Francisco, CA (25–27 January).

The SU640KTS operates in the SWIR (0.9–1.7µm) at 30 frames per second. The solid-state, uncooled 640 x 512 pixel array camera with 25µm pitch also features built-in non-uniformity corrections (NUCs), automatic gain control (AGC), and adjustable automatic contrast enhancement.

For solar applications, the high-resolution, large-format camera suits silicon block, silicon ingot, or wafer inspection. Other applications include integrated circuit microscopy, machine vision of moving objects, sorting, inspection, hyper- and multi-spectral imaging, pulsed or continuous wave (CW) laser-beam profiling, thermal imaging at >150ºC through glass windows, and full-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) at 1.04µm, 1.31µm or 1.55µm.

The SU640KTS offers both EIA-170 analog video output and Camera Link compatibility for 12-bit digital imaging. Extensive camera commands and controls are also available using the Camera Link interface or via a separate EIA232 interface, for added flexibility.

The new, low-power (<2.5W at 20ºC, 9–16V) camera comes with a C-mount lens adapter. Camera options include a C-mount 25mm f/1.4 lens, Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens with an F-mount adapter, or a SWIR-optimized 50mm f/1.4 lens with the Goodrich 42mm interface adapter. Also available is an imaging pack consisting of a 2m Camera Link cable and the National Instruments PCIe-1427 frame grabber card.

The new camera has met all Conformite Europeene (CE) and US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) standards for radiated and conducted emissions, for immunity from such emissions, and for electrostatic discharge (ESD) resistance. The CE mark ensures compatibility with the toughest country requirements for instruments delivered to European Union customers.
