SU-LDH digital line scan camera
Sensors Unlimited, part of Goodrich Corporation, has introduced the shortwave infrared (SWIR) SU-LDH digital line scan camera. It uses the LC linear array, providing correlated double sampling, integrate-while-read snapshot acquisition and extremely low noise. The SU1024LDH camera delivers high dynamic range at frame rates greater than 46,000 lines per second and quantum efficiency greater than 70 per cent from 1.0 to 1.6µm. The square 25µm pixels make this camera ideal for high-speed machine vision, to monitor continuous processes and moving objects.
The solid-state detector requires no cooling and offers wavelength response from 0.8 to 1.7µm. Many materials classification and sorting, inspection, and process control applications require longer wavelength spectral response than silicon-based, line scan cameras offer. The SWIR camera images beyond the visible wavelength, providing added inspection capabilities, which are key for moisture detection, plastic sorting, and many thermal processes. The camera features 14-bit digital capture and is available with Camera Link interface for convenient and rapid system integration.
