Acuros™ SWIR Infrared Camera

SKU: Acuros Category: Tags: ,

SWIR Vision Systems™ introduces the Acuros™ family of high definition cameras featuring CQD™ Colloidal Quantum Dot technology. Acuros cameras deliver broadband, visible-to-SWIR, high-resolution images, at far superior cost points compared to InGaAs SWIR cameras. The cameras are classified as EAR99 products (no license required for global export) and are intended for use in applications including industrial machine vision, silicon inspection, surveillance, hyperspectral imaging, and more.



SWIR Vision Systems cameras are built with increasing resolution to provide the needed performance for specific applications.

  • Acuros™ VGA SWIR Camera (640 x 512)
  • Acuros™ 1MP SWIR Camera (1280 x 1024)
  • Acuros™ HD SWIR Camera (1920 x 1080)

Ideal in daylight or artificially lit environments, Acuros cameras provide the superior image resolution needed in challenging image sensing environments. with inherently lower cost per megapixel than InGaAs detectors, Acuros SWIR cameras provide excellent value for system integrator.
