Leuven, Belgium, June 16, 2003 —- Xenics nv introduces its new infrared focal plane camera XEVA 2. This high-end product is equipped with its new near infrared InGaAs imager. The imager has a resolution of 320 x 256 pixels and has a high detectivity between 0.9 and 1.7 mm! This is the part of the spectrum where all standard CCD cameras start to be blind.
The Peltier cooled camera is able to cool the sensor blow -30°C ambient. This gives the image a low noise and low dark current output signal. A wide dynamic range, no cross-talk, a good pixel uniformity and high linearity are only one of the many features of the camera.
The XEVA 2 imager is designed for special research and machine vision applications. The camera is equipped with the new USB 2.0 interface and is also downwards compatible. This plug-and-play interface avoids expensive frame grabbers and can also be used with a simple laptop. Drivers for Windows and National Instruments are available for easy OEM application developments. The camera has its own PC compatible VGA monitor connector. A special trigger connector can be used to interface machines in time critical applications.
The camera housing in blue anodized brushed metal is a modern rigid design and flexible adaptable. The camera can be equipped with a Cmount or an Fmount lens. A special tool allows the user to focus the camera according its needs if macro imaging is needed. Special supporting screws are available and the focal point of the sensor can be made available outside the front of the camera!
Typical applications for this camera are IR spectrography, laser quality control, extreme thermal imaging (200 to 800°C), fluid control, non-destructive research, night vision, machine vision, fire detection and fighting, etc…
