Available from Stemmer Imaging, Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) has launched the next generation of its Goldeye short-wave infrared (SWIR) cameras. The all-new Goldeye infrared industrial camera series features the most compact housing in its class and stands out with excellent image quality and suitability for industrial applications. Goldeye cameras offer sensitivity in the 900–1700nm wavelength range.
AVT’s new Goldeye is a brand new development based on a VGA InGaAs sensor stabilised with TEC1 peltier cooling. The rectangular housing is significantly smaller and lighter, which makes it the smallest SWIR camera with Gigabit Ethernet interface available. The first model in the range is the Goldeye G-032 SWIR, which features a highly sensitive InGaAs sensor with 640 × 512 pixel resolution and frame rates up to 100 frames per second. More models will be added during 2014.
The rugged hardware is designed for the tough requirements of industrial machine vision. The built-in sensor cooling works without a fan and the screwed interface port allows for a secure connection. The ultra-compact form factor fitting screw threads on all sides make the integration into an industrial vision system particularly easy. With its 12-pin Hirose I/O port, the new Goldeye opens many possibilities for trigger and synchronisation with other system components.
AVT’s Goldeye features a GigE Vision compliant Gigabit Ethernet interface and supports Power over Ethernet, which simplifies cabling by powering the camera via the data cable. Thanks to its modular housing, the Goldeye can be fitted with various filters and lenses with C-, F- and M42-mounts.
