Tigris 640 Series

Cooled mid-wave infrared camera

The Tigris 640 is a cooled mid-wave infrared (MWIR) camera with a state-of-the-art InSb or MCT detector with 640 x 512 resolution.

 

The Tigris 640 InSb is able to provide a maximum frame rate of up to 320 Hz. The Tigris 640 MCT offers maximum full frame rate of up to 105 Hz. A window of interest (WOI) is available for higher frame rates for both InSb and MCT.

 

We offer broadband versions for extended spectral sensitivity into the short-wave infrared (SWIR) band. Tigris 640 uses either a CameraLink or GigE Vision digital interface. Analog out, HD-SDI and triggering are also available.

 

On the Tigris 640 InSb, we offer several temperature calibrations (-20-170°C, 120-350°C, 150-500°C).

 

Benefits & Features

 

• Broadband imaging in SWIR and MWIR
• CameraLink, GigE Vision and analog interface
• Motorized filter wheel with multiple filters
• Thermography options available

Lenses

Our cameras are compatible with a wide variety of lenses.

 

We do not manufacture our own lenses, but instead offer a variety of third-party lenses that can be purchased directly from us. We guarantee compatibility for any lenses purchased directly from Xenics.

Frame Grabbers

The Xenics product range includes several products that require a frame grabber card to connect the camera to a PC.

 

The Euresys GRABLINK full, Imperx VCE-CLEX01 and National Instruments PCIe-1433 frame grabbers are fully integrated in Xeneth and the Xeneth SDK. This means that you can use Xeneth software both to control the camera and to grab images making abstraction of the proprietary frame grabber software.

 

Other frame grabbers properly integrating the CameraLink and GigE Vision protocol can be used in Xeneth and the Xeneth SDK, however only for command and control of the camera. To grab images you rely on the dedicated software provided by the frame grabber vendors.

Cables & Power Supplies

Xenics develops flexible and modular cameras resulting in a wide variety of camera interfaces. All these interfaces require unique cabling which we keep in stock. Next to interface cables we also offer separate power supplies.

Cases

Xenics ships its infrared cameras all over the world in high-grade custom cases. As our infrared cameras have different sizes, we have several case-types in stock guaranteeing a tight fit. The cases are made of polypropylene which make them very sturdy. They are dustproof, watertight, stackable and can cope with temperatures between -40 °C and 80 °C. In addition they are equipped with an automatic air pressure compensation valve allowing us to ship the cameras all over the globe.

 

Most of our infrared cameras come with a standard hardshell case upon purchasing.

Filters

A filter can be fitted in the C-mount lens adapter of most Xenics cameras.

 

For Tigris MWIR cameras, you can mount filters (diameter 25.4 mm) in the standard filter wheel. Retainer rings to lock the filters are standard with the Tigris cameras.

 

For a list of suitable filters, please directly contact the filter supplier, Spectrogon, for filter purchases. Please check camera and filter documentation for compatible wavelength ranges.
