Leuven, 21 July 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 Optics + Photonics 2017 to showcase its latest cameras. For applications where high speed, high thermal sensitivity, on-board thermography or broadband detectors are required, the Tigris-640 will be presented during the event. The latest stirling cooled MWIR camera from Xenics has also made several appearances in exhibitions throughout the year. Also on display during the upcoming exhibition is the Xeva-2.5-320 SWIR camera, designed for use in R&D applications like laser beam analysis and profiling, semiconductor inspection, hyperspectral imaging etc. where an extended SWIR range up to 2.5 μm is necessary. Xenics exhibits in booth 443 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.

Cooled MWIR camera Tigris-640: Now free of ITAR restrictions

Succeeding the end-of-life Onca MWIR camera series, the Tigris-640 is equipped with a state-of-the-art InSb or MCT detector with 640 x 512 pixels and pixel pitch of 15 μm. BroadBand (BB) versions of both detectors are available which allow their spectral sensitivity to be extended into the shortwave infrared band (SWIR). A motorized filter wheel is equipped with a variety of interface including GigE Vision, CameraLink, analog out, HD-SDI and a configurable trigger in-output.

Recently, the Tigris-640 received Commodity Jurisdiction (CJ) approval and thus is no longer limited by ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) restrictions. This is the first case of a MWIR camera receiving CJ approval, making the Tigris-640 the only ITAR free MWIR camera in the USA.

Extended SWIR InGaAs camera up to 2.5μm

The Xeva-2.5-320 is equipped with a Type 2 Super Lattice (T2SL) detector that is sensitive from 1.0 to 2.5 μm. It features a resolution of 320 x 256 pixels with a 30 μm pixel pitch. It outputs 14-bit data and is available in a 100 Hz or 350 Hz version.

The Xeva-2.5-320 is equipped with a TE4 cooler. Together with its excellent thermo-mechanical design the operating temperature can be brought down to 203 K, guaranteeing low noise and dark current values, and resulting in excellent image quality. Other features include standard CameraLink or USB 2.0 interfaces, user-friendly Xeneth software, and an optional software development kit.
