AVT´s new SWIR Camera Goldeye

19 Mar 2014

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 to 1,700 nm wavelength range.

The new Goldeye is a brand new development and is based on a VGA InGaAs sensor stabilized 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 x 512 pixel resolution and frame rates up to 100 frames per second. More models will be added during 2014.

For the tough requirements of industrial machine vision

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 synchronization with other system components.

GigE Vision compliant and Power over Ethernet

The new 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.
