Leuven, 09 April 2017 — Xenics, Europe’s leading developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared detectors, cameras and customized imaging solutions from the SWIR to the LWIR realm, comes to SPIE DCS 2017 to showcase its cameras for the security and commercial sensing market. Of interest is the latest Tigris-640 cooled midwave infrared (MWIR) camera. This stirling cooled MWIR camera made its appearance during the BiOS & Photonics West 2017 exhibition earlier this year, and will return for demonstration during this event. Xenics exhibits in booth 426 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
Cooled MWIR camera – Tigris-640
As a successor to the Onca MWIR camera, the Tigris-640 is a cooled MWIR camera equipped with a state-of-the-art InSb or MCT detector with 640 x 512 pixels and pixel pitch of 15 μm. Both detectors also have BroadBand (BB) versions optionally which allow their spectral sensitivity to be extended into the shortwave infrared band (SWIR). A motorized filter wheel is standard and the cameras are equipped with a variety of interfaces including GigE Vision, CameraLink, analog out, HD-SDI and a configurable trigger in-output, for maximum flexibility. The Tigris-640 (or its camera version XCO-640) can be used in a variety of security, R&D and industrial applications.
Xenics cores – Ready-to-integrate OEM modules
Also presented at SPIE DCS 2017 are the Xenics core series, consisting of the XSW, XCO and XTM camera cores, in the spectral bands of SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR respectively.
The XSW and the XTM are both compact OEM camera modules that integrate easily into surveillance or monitoring systems. Both modules are power efficient, making them suitable for security applications such as infrared imaging in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), systems to detect for example UAVs, or night vision border control.
The XCO-640 is a MWIR cooled camera module 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.
