Xenics enters Vision China for the first time

Xenics enters Vision China for the first time

Leuven, 20 March 2019 --- Xenics, Europe's leading developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared sensors, cameras and customized imaging solutions from the SWIR to the LWIR realm, will be participating in Vision China, as part of the Laser World of Photonics China event. This marks the company’s first direct involvement in a major trade event in China. Some of the latest and most relevant products will be displayed on the booth. This includes the brand-new Manx series, a family of high performance linear InGaAs cameras.

Xenics exhibits in booth OW8.8105 at SNIEC (Shanghai New International Expo Centre).


First time entry as an exhibitor in China

Xenics sees a strong alignment in its products and the growing needs of the Chinese market, particularly in machine vision applications. Vision China will be the first instance that Xenics participates directly in a trade event based in China. Having an already established presence in China through its distributors, a direct participation in this event seeks to further strengthen the commitment Xenics has in the Chinese imaging market.

Xenics will showcase its portfolio of ready-to-use infrared cameras, with emphasis placed on the short-wave infrared, where the company produces its own sensors. The booth will be joined by sInfraRed, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xenics in Singapore.

“The industrial machine vision and automation market continue to show a positive outlook around the world, especially so for China. We have innovative products coming this year that will be very relevant for these industries, and we want to start discussions with the right stakeholders.” says Dr Raf Vandersmissen, Product Manager at Xenics. Raf also holds the position of director at sInfraRed.


Manx series - the fastest InGaAs linear camera in the world

The recently launched Manx linear camera series will be available on the booth for the entire duration
of the trade event. This short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera provides high quality line-scan imaging at
unprecedented speeds of up to 390 kHz line rate. These speeds are currently the highest out of all
commercially available SWIR linear cameras. Achieving new grounds in SWIR imaging speeds
enhances inspection processes, increasing daily production capabilities for such applications. Silicon
wafer inspections, TFT screen inspections, food and agricultural produce sorting are some industrial
applications that would benefit from this new line of ultra-fast linear InGaAs cameras. The Manx is
offered in 3 different resolutions of 512, 1024 or 2048 pixels. A 2048-pixel resolution Manx camera will
be demonstrated on the booth for the event.


Gobi+ series – high performance thermal imaging

Xenics introduces an addition to the Gobi longwave infrared (LWIR) series: the Gobi+ (plus) series.
This new series of Gobi cameras provide high resolution imaging at full 640 x 480 pixels. In order to
fulfill ever higher requirements of demanding applications, the Gobi+ camera series comes with
increased performance capabilities. The Gobi+ brings enhanced image quality thanks to improved
pixel operability as well as low detector noise of less than 50 mK NETD. High speed imaging is also
provided with frame rates up to 60 Hz that can be further increased in windowing mode.

World's first InGaAs camera photon emission microscope

Xenics enabled Semicaps to realize the world's first InGaAs camera photon emission microscope in 2004. Since then Xenics and sInfraRed have supported us in our endeavors for better sensitivity and resolution in photon and thermal emission microscopy.
