Leuven, 12 September 2017 — Xenics, Europe’s leading developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared detectors, cameras and customized imaging solutions from the SWIR to the LWIR realm, returns to DSEI this year to showcase its cameras for the security and defence market. The Bobcat-320 Gated is one of the three versions available for the Bobcat-320 series. This is a gated imaging version for use in applications where very short exposure times are required. A wide range of OEM camera modules for the spectral ranges of SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR will also be exhibited during the event. Known for their ease of integration, these high performance infrared camera modules find uses in many safety and security applications today. Xenics exhibits in booth N2-302 at ExCeL London, London.

Bobcat-320-Gated – Cost sensitive SWIR InGaAs camera series

A unique gated imaging version of the Bobcat-320 for use in R&D and specialized dedicated applications, expect to see our Bobcat-320-Gated presented during the four-day exhibition.

The Bobcat-320-Gated features trigger-in and jitter-free trigger-out for synchronization. A distinctive feature is the programmable trigger-out delay between the internally generated trigger-out pulse and the start of the exposure. The exposure time is configurable from 100 ns up to 1 ms in steps of 100 ns, or 1 ms to 40 ms (in standard mode).

With all these features, the Bobcat-320-Gated SWIR camera is the ideal Bobcat SWIR camera for applications in which very short exposure times are required.

Xenics cores – Easy-to-integrate infrared OEM camera modules from SWIR to LWIR

Integration of our Xenics infrared camera cores is done by our customers into various sights, imaging cameras, PTZ systems, Pods or gimbals for use in safety and security applications such as the

  • Perimeter protection
  • Situational awareness
  • Search and Rescue
  • Border surveillance
  • Fire detection and fire fighting
  • Traffic monitoring
  • Protection of critical infrastructure
  • Night vision
  • Pilot / driver assistance
  • Target acquisition and target identification
  • Law enforcement surveillance
  • Public safety and crowd control

The full line-up of the Xenics infrared camera core series will be present at the event.

The XCO-640 is a MWIR cooled camera core with low NETD. When used in combination with a zoom lens, the XCO-640 features onboard auto-focus algorithms, automatically controlling the lens during zooming for optimal focus positions. For that reason, the XCO-640 is highly suitable for security applications such as long range surveillance or perimeter monitoring/protection.

Compact, low-power consuming and easy-to-integrate, the XSW and the XTM are OEM infrared camera cores for the SWIR and LWIR realms respectively.

The XSW-640 is a short wave infrared camera core, sensitive in the range between 0.9 and 1.7 μm with a wide dynamic range and wide operating temperature. Thermo Electric (TE) stabilization reduces the dark current and noise levels, and the on-board image processing ensures the best contrast and high image quality.

The XTM-640 is equipped with an uncooled microbolometer array of 640 by 480 pixels with 17 μm pixel pitch for thermal imaging in the long wave infrared (8 – 12 μm), with high thermal sensitivity and NETD of 55 mK. Measuring at only 45 x 45 x 32 mm³, with advanced shutter design for optimal image performance in a small form factor housing, it is a compact and versatile LWIR thermal camera module with unique image quality and stability.
