Sensors Unlimited - UTC Aerospace Systems announces the compact, large-format indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) high-resolution shortwave infrared snapshot video camera, the 640KTS-1.7RT. The compact InGaAs snapshot 640 x 512 pixel video cameras bring high resolution InGaAs imaging performance to sorting, inspection, spectral imaging, and machine vision applications.
UTC Aerospace Systems (Sensors Unlimited Products) new compact, large format SWIR-InGaAs camera has met all CE and FCC standards for radiated and conducted emissions, for immunity from such emissions, and for electrostatic discharge (ESD) resistance. The CE mark ensures compatibility with the toughest country requirements for instruments delivered to European Union customers.
The 640KTS-1.7RT operates in the SWIR (from 0.9 microns to 1.7 microns) at 30 frames per second. The solid-state, uncooled 640 x 512 pixel array camera with 25 µm pitch also features built-in non-uniformity corrections (NUCs), automatic gain control (AGC), and adjustable automatic contrast enhancement. It offers both EIA-170 analog video output and Camera Link® compatibility for 12-bit digital imaging. Extensive camera commands and controls are also available using the Camera Link interface or via a separate EIA232 interface, for added flexibility.
The new, low power (<2.5 W at 20 degrees C, 9-16 V) InGaAs camera comes with a C-mount lens adapter. Camera options include a C-mount 25 mm f/1.4 lens, Nikon 50 mm f/1.4 lens with an F-mount adapter, or a SWIR optimized 50 mm f/1.4 lens with a 42 mm interface adapter. Also available is an imaging pack consisting of 2 meter Camera Link cable and the National Instruments PCIe-1427 frame grabber card.
