New Goldeye G-130 TEC1 with Sony IMX990 SenSWIR-InGaAs sensor. 1.3 MP resolution, 5µm pixel pitch, VIS-SWIR camera (400 – 1700 nm) unlike WiDy SenS 1280 (900 – 1700 nm).
SenSWIR sensor technology by Sony – Wide spectral range, small pixels
The new sensors are based on Sony’s new SenSWIR technology, which, due to the innovative InGaAs sensor architecture, creates a quantum leap in pixel size and image homogeneity while enabling image acquisition in the visible and short-wave infrared range (400 nm to 1700 nm) with high quantum efficiency. In the future, this will considerably expand the application possibilities of Goldeye SWIR cameras regarding the spectral analysis of objects and a more precise detection of details enabled by a comparatively small pixel size of only 5 µm. Here the availability of the ½ inch SXGA sensor is a particularly interesting innovation for many applications, like semiconductor inspection or laser beam profiling.
The new Goldeye G-130 SXGA VIS and SWIR camera in detail
‘Allied Vision’ will release four Goldeye camera models with the new SenSWIR-InGaAs sensors. As usual, the cameras will be available with GigE Vision or CameraLink interfaces to meet as many different system requirements as possible. The Goldeye VIS-SWIR camera G/CL-130 with IMX990 1.3MP SXGA sensor offers a frame rate of 110 fps (with CameraLink interface) or 94 fps (with GigE Vision interface) and the G/CL-030 features the ¼ inch VGA sensor IMX991, which enables interface independent a frame rate of 258 fps.
All new camera models feature a robust and compact design optimized for industrial applications without fan. The integrated single-stage sensor cooling (TEC1) and several integrated image correction functions will contribute significantly to the excellent image quality. The comprehensive I/O and GenICam standard compliant feature control options also considerably simplify the system integration of Goldeye cameras.
The Goldeye HD SWIR camera G-130 offers high quantum efficiency in the 400-1700 nm range and thus expands the application possibilities in comparison to the WiDy SenS 1280 with limited sensitivity between 900 and 1700nm.
‘Allied Vision’ – The SWIR camera expert
‘Allied Vision’ has many years of experience in the development of short-wave infrared cameras with InGaAs sensor technology. The current product portfolio includes models with QVGA and VGA resolution with and without thermoelectric sensor cooling. For scientific applications, cameras with two-stage thermoelectric sensor cooling (TEC2), nitrogen cooling chamber and fan are also available, which enable particularly low-noise image acquisition with long exposure times. With this comprehensive expertise, ‘Allied Vision’ provides optimized cameras with outstanding image quality in terms of homogeneity, dynamics, and linearity for a wide range of applications. The high quality of Goldeye SWIR cameras is emphasized by a 3-year guarantee, which is unique for SWIR cameras in the market. The ease-of-use of Goldeye cameras provides an unmatched out-of-the-box experience.
