Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Cameras

If you need imaging in the SWIR range, Xenics offers a variety of shortwave infrared cameras based on in-house developed InGaAs arrays. The detectors offer economically viable and compact cameras that cover the VisNIR/ shortwave infrared (SWIR) spectral range up to 1.7 µm without necessarily the need for cooling.


InGaAs as a detector material has introduced an economic alternative for shortwave infrared (SWIR) industrial applications such as measurement of humidity, surface film distributions and various sorting tasks such as separating polymers from natural materials.

Our shortwave infrared (SWIR) cameras come with various resolution and frame rate options.
