Bobcat+ 320 Series

Small, high performance InGaAs camera with GigE interface

The Bobcat+ 320 series is based on an in-house developed, temperature stabilised InGaAs detector with a 320 x 256 pixel resolution.

The Bobcat+ 320 cameras come with GigE Vision interface and offer high frame rates up to 400 Hz. The new and improved Bobcat+ 320 now comes with two gain modes (high gain and high dynamic range) and two read out modes (IWR or ITR). Moreover, a vSWIR version is also available.

The Bobcat+ 320 targets machine vision, safetey and security, scientific research, and process monitoring.

Benefits & Features

• Flexible and easy-to-use
• GigE Vision interface
• Low dark current
• SWIR or vSWIR
• High frame rate of 400 Hz

Software

Our standard IR software, Xeneth, is included with this camera. Find Out More

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.

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. The following Xenics SWIR cameras have a standard filter holder in the C-mount adapter (only one filter can be mounted and filter has to be 25.4 mm in diameter):

  1. Bobcat 320 and 640
  2. Cheetah 640 CL
  3. Xeva 320 (exceptions: Xeva 2.35)
  4. Lynx

In order to lock the filter in the c-mount adapter, the following filter retainer ring has to be ordered from Xenics, part number: MEC-000614

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.
