  • Princeton Infrared Technologies Receives Vision Systems Design's Gold Level Innovators Award 2017, PRLOG, April 2017

     

    MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N. J.  – April 4, 2017 - Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc. (PIRT) (www.princetonirtech.com), announced today that its LineCam12 linescan camera, based on indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs), shortwave infrared (SWIR) detector technology, was recognized by the judges of the annual Vision Systems Design (VSD) Innovators Awards program with a Gold Level award because of its unique properties. The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies.  The exceptional LineCam12 camera features the only InGaAs linear array with visible, near-infrared (NIR), and SWIR sensitivity.  By detecting light from 400 nm to 1700 nm, the new linescan camera enables machine vision (MV) and spectroscopy users the ability to see both visible, NIR, and SWIR light simultaneously, allowing hyperspectral imaging applications that would have previously required 2 or 3 cameras to achieve the same performance. The low read noise of <80e- is a factor of 4x lower than other known legacy cameras in the industry. The advanced SWIR-InGaAs 1024-element linear array can image over 37k lines per second and has a 12.5 µm pitch. With two digital outputs, USB3.0 and Camera Link®, the LineCam12 is easy to integrate into new and/or existing systems.   Martin Ettenberg, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Princeton Infrared Technologies, notes, “This is the second year in a row that we’ve received the gold level award and it’s only our second product to enter the competition! Last year, our scientific camera, the 1280SciCam was selected. This year’s award-winning LineCam12 with its wide spectral sensitivity is an ideal linear array for machine vision tasks while also serving the spectroscopy market. We are delighted to be honored again by Vision Systems Design’s Innovators Awards Program.”
