Leuven, Belgium, 7 November , 2005 – The XEVA-CL-FPA-2.5-320-TE4 has been announced today as the latest near-infrared image camera of Leuven- based Xenics. The thermo-electrically cooled infrared camera features an imaging system based on the proven HgCdTe infrared detection technology and delivers superb performance in the 0.85 to 2.5 mm wavelength region.
The new XEVA-CL-FPA-2.5-320-TE4 digital camera delivers 14bit images at a frame rate of 60 or 100Hz. It consists of a 320×256 HgCdTe detector array with pixel pitch of 30 mm at a pixel operability ratio of > 98%.
The detector head is cooled with a four-stage thermo-electrical cooling element and is integrated into one single compact housing with the control and communication electronics.
The camerahead interfaces to a PC via Cameralink. The camera comes with a custom frame grabber or can interface to standard frame grabber cards such as the NI-1428. Each camera is delivered with a graphical user interface X-control, offering direct access to various camera settings including exposure time and operating temperature. Software tools include 2-point uniformity correction and bad pixel replacement. The Xenics software driver is fully compatible with Windows 2000/XP.
The XEVA-CL-FPA operates on a single, compact and light-weight (300g) 12V/5A power supply which is delivered along with the camera. Operating temperature is –40 to +70oC.
The camera can be employed in a broad range of applications, including hyperspectral imaging and laser beam profiling, automotive and airborne vision enhancement, semiconductor inspection, thermal imaging, on-line process control and medical applications.
