Leuven, Belgium, 7 November 2005 – Xenics, Europe’s leading developer of innovative infrared image sensors, has today announced a new member of its IR imaging systems product line. The XEVA FPA-320 is a fully digital, software configurable camera consisting of a 320×256 thermo-electrically cooled InGaAs array combined with control and communication electronics in one compact housing.
The new XEVA-FPA-320 digital camera is available with standard (0.9 – 1.7 mm) wavelength InGaAs 320×256 detector arrays, at pixel pitch 30 mm and pixel operability ratio of > 98%. The camera comes in various speed versions: 60Hz, 100Hz and 350Hz, allowing you to choose the most suitable detector camera configuration for the user’s specific application.
The camera outputs 12-bit data for the 60Hz and 100Hz version and 14-bit data for the 350Hz version. The camera head interfaces to a PC via standard USB 2.0, CameraLink or a parallel LVDS bus.
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-FPA-320 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.
