SWIR / NIR Cameras



The SWIR cameras of our family IKxxxx camera are highly sensitive infrared cameras (SWIR, NIR). The sensitivity interval reaches from 900 nm to 1700 nm. The sensor does not need active cooling. The thermal optimized housing enables easy integration into existing measurement with stable temperature conditions.

The optional available M42 to C-mount adapter or F-mount (Nikon) to C-mount extends the number of lenses which can be used with this camera. Via standard USB2.0 interface can be controlled by each PC or notebook.

The 14-bit A/D converter provides high dynamics of captured image data. Correction procedures specially adapted to properties of InGaAs sensors assure very high image quality.
