Allied Vision’s new Goldeye G-030 and G-130 models incorporate the innovative Sony SenSWIR sensors which support a wide spectral range allowing imaging in both visible and SWIR spectrums. The cameras feature a robust and compact design optimized for industrial applications. The integrated single-stage sensor cooling (TEC1) and several on-board image correction functions contribute significantly to the camera’s excellent image quality. In addition, standardized interfaces (GigE Vision including PoE or Camera Link) and comprehensive I/O control options simplify the connection to your software solution and the synchronization with other system components.

SenSWIR sensor technology – Wide spectral range, small pixels

The new sensors are based on Sony’s new SenSWIR technology, which, due to the innovative InGaAs sensor architecture, creates a quantum leap in pixel size and image homogeneity while enabling image acquisition in the visible and short-wave infrared ranges (400 nm to 1700 nm) with high quantum efficiency. This will considerably expand the application possibilities of Goldeye SWIR cameras regarding the spectral analysis of objects and increase the precision of details detected, all enabled by a small pixel size of only 5µm.

The new Goldeye models in detail

The Goldeye G-030 features the ¼ inch VGA sensor, IMX991, which provides a frame rate of 234 fps at a resolution of 656 x 520 pixels. The Goldeye G-130 with the IMX990 1.3MP SXGA sensor (1280 x 1024 pixels) offers a maximum frame rate of 94 fps.

Allied Vision – The SWIR camera expert

Allied Vision has many years of experience in the development of short-wave infrared cameras with InGaAs sensor technology. The current product portfolio includes models with QVGA and VGA resolution with and without thermoelectric sensor cooling. For scientific applications, cameras with two-stage thermoelectric sensor cooling (TEC2) equipped with a nitrogen cooling chamber and fan are also available, which enables low-noise image acquisition with long exposure times. With this comprehensive expertise, Allied Vision provides optimized cameras with outstanding image quality in terms of homogeneity, dynamics, and linearity for a wide range of applications. The high quality of Goldeye SWIR cameras is emphasized by a 3-year guarantee, which is unique for SWIR cameras in the market. The ease-of-use of Goldeye cameras provide an unmatched out-of-the-box experience.
