SU640KTS camera

Share this on social media:

Sensors Unlimited – Goodrich ISR Systems has released the SU640KTS, a large-format, InGaAs high-resolution shortwave infrared snapshot video camera.

The SU640KTS operates in the SWIR (from 0.9µm to 1.7µm) at 30fps. The solid-state, uncooled 640 x 512 pixel array camera with 25µm pitch also features built-in non-uniformity corrections (NUCs), automatic gain control (AGC), and adjustable automatic contrast enhancement. It offers both EIA-170 analogue 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.

For solar applications, the high resolution, large-format camera is ideal for silicon block, silicon ingot, or wafer inspection. Other applications include integrated circuit microscopy, machine vision of moving objects, sorting, inspection, hyper- and multi-spectral imaging, pulsed or continuous wave (CW) laser-beam profiling, thermal imaging at >150°C through glass windows, and full-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) at 1.04µm, 1.31µm, or 1.55µm.

The low power (<2.5 W at 20°C, 9-16 V) InGaAs camera comes with a C-mount lens adapter. Camera options include a C-mount 25mm f/1.4 lens, Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens with an F-mount adapter, or a SWIR optimized 50mm f/1.4 lens with the Goodrich 42mm interface adapter. Also available is an imaging pack consisting of 2 metre Camera Link cable and the National Instruments PCIe-1427 frame grabber card.

The imager has met all Conformite Europeene (CE) and the US Federal Communications Commission (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.
