Operating from its newly established sales and support office in Beverly (near Boston, Massechusits), Xenics (Leuven, Belgium) took advantage of the BiOS/Photonics West 2011 exhibition to launch its Lynx series of high-speed, high-sensitivity SWIR line-scan cameras to the US market for medical OCT and industrial inspection. Volume production of the cameras is expected to start in the second quarter of 2011, the company said, adding that with this latest strategic move it intends to broaden its position as a key player for IR line-scan cameras worldwide.
The company's successful Lynx camera, based on its Xlin-1.7 line-scan sensor, has met customer demand for ever higher resolution SWIR imaging capabilities. The camera offers extremely sensitivity and broad dynamic range for high-resolution industrial image processing, spectroscopy and medical OCT. Xenics offers Lynx in three resolution options: 512, 1,024 and 2,048 line pixels.
'We are continuously devising IR products and solutions that are state-of-the-art, offering high resolution across the infrared realm and high sensitivity for applications at low light levels,' says Xenics founder and CEO Bob Grietens. 'This positions us squarely in the very competitive hyperspectral, OCT and industrial machine vision markets. Highest flexibility in meeting user requirements is our speciality. This includes a broad range of applications support.'
