Lucid Vision Labs has introduced its new compact and cost-efficient Triton SWIR IP67-rated 1.3MP and 0.3MP cameras.

The Triton SWIR is a GigE PoE camera featuring wide-band and high-sensitivity Sony SenSWIR 1.3MP IMX990 and 0.3MP IMX991 InGaAs sensors, capable of capturing images across both visible and invisible light spectrums, and boasting a miniaturised pixel size of 5μm.

The camera's capability of imaging on the short-wavelength infrared light spectrum opens a world of industrial applications with greater precision in fruit inspection and sorting, packaging, IR microscopy, semiconductor inspection, material sorting and more.

Triton’s Factory Tough design offers IP67 protection, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and provides protection against shock, vibration, water, dust, and electromagnetic interferences. It features Active Sensor Alignment for superior optical performance, a compact 29mm x 44mm size, M12 Ethernet and M8 general purpose I/O connectors for a robust connection, industrial EMC immunity and a wide ambient temperature range of -20°C to 50°C. Unlike the Atlas SWIR camera, the Triton SWIR does not have a TEC cooling device and can therefore be lower power and more compact.

“We’re excited to expand our SWIR camera portfolio with the new Triton SWIR IP67 cameras, offering a compact form factor at a cost-efficient price,” says Rod Barman, President at Lucid Vision Labs. “Compared to our high-end Atlas SWIR camera range, the Triton SWIR will enable easier access to SWIR technology for price sensitive customers, offering the same Sony SenSWIR IMX990 and IMX991 image sensor technology at a more affordable price.”

Triton is a GigE Vision and GenICam compliant camera capable of 1Gbps data transfer rates and allows the use of standard CAT5e and CAT6 cables up to 100 meters. Triton features Power over Ethernet (PoE) that simplifies integration and reduces cost.

All Lucid cameras conform to the GigE Vision 2.0 and GenICam3 standards and are supported by Lucid's own Arena software development kit. The Arena SDK provides customers with easy access to the latest industry standards and software technology. The SDK supports Windows, Linux 64bit and Linux ARM operating systems, and C, C++, C# and Python programming languages.
