Xeva-2.5-320

Versatile SWIR T2SL camera with response up to 2.5 µm

Superior performance for reliable research

The Xeva-2.5-320 is a compact SWIR camera equipped with a T2SL detector array for imaging in the 1.0 to 2.5 µm wavelength range. The camera features a resolution of 320 x 256 pixels with a 30 µm pixel pitch. It outputs 14-bit data and comes in a 100 Hz or 350 Hz version. 

The Xeva-2.5-320 SWIR camera interfaces to PC via standard USB 2.0 and CameraLink. Each camera is delivered with Xeneth software, which offers direct access to various camera settings such as exposure time and operating temperature. 

Through its advanced thermo-mechanical design, the Xeva-2.5-320 SWIR camera achieves excellent performance levels using a TE4-cooled device operating at temperatures down to 203 K.

Benefits & features

  • Spectrometer compatible
    These cameras have mounting holes for spectrographs, making them suitable for (hyper)spectral imaging applications
  • CameraLink and triggering for high speed imaging
    CameraLink interface is suitable for high datarates - triggering can be used for synchronisation at high frame rates
  • High Speed SWIR imaging up to 2.5 µm
    The Xeva-2.5-320 allows for high frame rate imaging up to 340 full frames per second - in a reduced window of interest, even higher frame rates are possible
  • Smallest TE4-cooled camera
    The Xeva-2.50-320 is a very small TE4 cooled T2SL camera with low dark current and response up to 2.50 µm
  • Flexible programming in an open architecture
    SDK (Software Developing Kit) available for all cameras - samples available for C++, LabView, Linux…

Designed for use in

  • R&D (SWIR range)
    R&D in the SWIR range (1.0 - 2.5 µm) is relatively unexplored and provides many research opportunities
  • Semiconductor inspection
    SWIR cameras are able to see through silicon
  • Hyperspectral SWIR imaging
    Combination of spectral imaging and 2D imaging. Our SWIR camera are used for hyperspectral SWIR imaging
  • Art inspection
    SWIR photons can penetrate through paint, hence underdrawings can be investigated
  • Laser beam profiling
    Laser beam analysis for infrared lasers up to 2.5µm
