Acuros eSWIR Camera


SWIR Vision Systems™ introduce for the first time, extended short wavelength infrared extended SWIR (eSWIR) cameras with sensitivity from 350nm to 2000nm wavelength. This new family of eSWIR products is built with pixel formats up to 1920 x 1080 at a pixel pitch of 15 microns. Close cousins to our ground-breaking Acuros™SWIR cameras, these new cameras become the highest resolution eSWIR cameras commercially available.


World-class detectivity and dark noise performance for cameras operating in this band are achieved at room temperature. Broadband sensitivity and low noise are achieved via specialized process engineering of the company’s Acuros™ CQD™ quantum dot materials. The Acuros™ CQD™eSWIR cameras with single-stage thermo-electric coolers (TECs) exhibit sensitivity superior to most traditional epitaxial infrared sensors in the 1600 – 2000nm band.

This new eSWIR capability will open up new imaging applications including machine vision, scientific research, medical imaging, long-range imaging through summer haze, maritime haze, and fine dust, wafer defect inspection, high-speed thermal imaging, hydrocarbon, and gas detection, plastic sorting, laser beam profiling and more. All AcurosTM cameras are GenICam compliant and come with USB3 or GigE Vision interfaces. The cameras are designated EAR-99 requiring no license for lawful export.
