For machine vision and other applications, Sensors Unlimited – Goodrich ISR Systems’ compact SU1024LDM line-scan camera features high-resolution 1024-pixel imaging in the short-wavelength infrared (SWIR). Its square pixels are suitable for inspection of polished silicon blocks, hot glass bottles, and ingots or wafers, and for use on continuous-process lines that apply transparent coatings that can be seen in the SWIR spectral region. The square pixel design ensures that the pixel height is sharply defined by a metal mask, providing better uniformity of response and improved measurement accuracy for the object being imaged. The robust camera measures 76 x 74 x 61 mm and has mounting points on four of its six sides, facilitating integration into a processing line or machine vision system. Applications include online sorting of pharmaceutical products.
