For High Speed, High Resolution ApplicationsPRINCETON, N.J., July 24, 2007 -- SUI (Sensors Unlimited Inc.) said its newest shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging system based on indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) technology -- the new SU-LDH digital line-scan camera -- is designed for applications including medical research, spectroscopy and machine vision.
The near-infrared (NIR) InGaAs camera increases line rates for 1024 pixels to over 40,000 lines per second, making this linear digital line-scan camera ideal for optical coherence tomography (OCT) and high-data-rate industrial process control, said the company, which is part of Goodrich Corp.
The advanced, high speed, high-resolution SWIR camera is available in a variety of configurations, based on the versatile new LC series of SUI linear arrays. Standard or extended InGaAs wavelength ranges are available from 0.8 to 1.7 µm and 1 to 2.2 µm. Square pixels for machine vision or rectangular pixels for spectroscopy can be selected and configured with optional 256-, 512-, or 1024-pixel arrays on a 25-µm pixel pitch, or alternatively a 50-µm pixel pitch for 256 and 512 arrays, according to the company.
Diverse applications for the SU-LDH camera include biomedical imaging, scientific imaging, agricultural inspection, high-speed spectroscopy, materials classification and sorting, remote ground sensing, telecommunications fiber and waveguide alignment, and the inspection of wood, hot glass and metals processing.
The 14-bit Camera Link-compatible output and control combined with the rugged enclosure ensures low maintenance and easy integration into high performance imaging systems, SUI said. The camera features high sensitivity, room-temperature-stabilized operation and integrate-while-read capability for fast readout speeds with minimal dead time.
