Pembroke Instruments Releases New SWIR Camera With Expanded Low Light Sensitivity and Ultra-Fast Gating Speeds
January 12, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsPembroke Instruments announces the release of the SenS Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) camera. The SenS employs a new and patented InGaAs sensor (640X512, 15 um pixel pitch) that can be set to operate in three modes of operation: 1) linear response mode for low light imaging 2) Log response mode when intrascene dynamic range is very high 3) Fast gating mode when image acquisition must have a time window < 200 nsec. The range of supported SWIR light level ranges is without precedent and SenS solves the problem of having to make compromises for image acquisition when light levels change and gating requirements are important.
The SWIR (Short Wave InfraRed ) spectral region has evolved to become critical for many industrial, scientific, remote sensing, and surveillance applications including:
According to Dr. Leslie M. Tack, Chief Technical Officer at Pembroke Instruments, "Our SWIR imaging customers are very excited about the SenS because it will expand their capabilities to include very low light imaging and fast gating without any loss in the standard wide dynamic range performance. It will be like have three cameras in one compact device".
Key features of the SenS SWIR camera include:
Three separate modes of operation to obtain peak imaging performance:
