EINDHOVEN, Netherlands, Feb. 25, 2011 — Adimec Advanced Image Systems bv has announced the availability of enhanced antireflection coating (ARC) options for its Quartz camera series.
The new offerings improve the quality and accuracy of the cameras by reducing reflection to as little as 0.25% of the light beams processed by the sensor. While standard ARCs delivered with off-the-shelf sensors typically provide protection levels of 2% of light at bandwidth ranges of 400 to 700 nm, the new solutions consistently achieve sub-0.5% protection at bandwidths of 400 to 900 nm.
Based on proprietary True Accurate Imaging technology, the coatings are available in single and multilayer configurations, with protection levels ranging from 2% to 0.25%, depending upon the bandwidth required. The company also offers custom ARC solutions to provide a specific level of protection that meets individual product requirements. The custom solutions allow further optimization that takes into account the spectral characteristics of the intended application, determined by factors such as illumination, lenses and mirrors.
The company applies custom ARCs to high-performance cameras. It uses its state-of-the art facility to ensure cleanliness in the application process and uses the highest grade premium quality glass in its cameras.
The ARC options enhance the sensitivity of the sensor in many applications. In machine vision, too much reflection on the sensor (i.e., more than 2%) interferes with the light reflected by the device under test, causing measurement errors. By offering protection levels that result in as little as 0.25% reflection, the new solutions improve the accuracy that can be achieved with the company’s cameras.
