1280SciCam

This non-ITAR reduced weight (3000g) lattice matched, InGaAs camera allows for high resolution SWIR imaging 1280x1024 at high frame rates >93 frames per second (fps) at full frame size. This small pitch array,12 μm, combined with the high quantum efficiency of the lattice matched InGaAs arrays enables impressive imaging in the SWIR and visible band. The camera has the capability of four temperature setpoints, -20°C (no cooling), 0°C (fan cooling), -40°C, or -60°C (water cooled), using a 4 stage TEC integrated in a vacuum-sealed package package. This advance digital array (PIRT1280A1-12) on board is a product of Princeton Infrared's decades of experience in InGaAs processing.

This advanced digital focal plane array (PIRT1280A1-12) offers 14-bit digital output with a low read noise of <90e- with no image lag. This combined with low dark current InGaAs and 4 stage TEC will enable high sensitivity imaging with very long integration times >2 minutes. The camera utilizes a medium based Camera Link™ to allow for fast, full frame rate imaging >93 frames per second at 1280x1024 at 14 bits. The InGaAs detector provides high quantum efficiency response in the shortwave infrared as well as in the visible wavelength range, from 0.4 µm to 1.7 µm. This powerful camera system integrates to most frame grabber cards and delivers excellent performance in high-speed machine vision applications as well as microscopy where the small pitch long integration time is advantageous.
