Xenics has demonstrated its Bobcat-640, a low-dark-current camera equipped for GigE Vision or CameraLink.
Bobcat-640 is a short wave infrared camera with InGaAs detector for machine vision and high temperature process control, as well as science and research and development. The Bobcat-640 has a form factor of 55 x 55 x 67mm³ for the CameraLink version and 55 x 55 x 85mm³ for a small GigE vision interface. The use of industrial components increases the operating temperature range from -400C up to 700C. Power over Ethernet is possible for standalone operation. In terms of resolution, Bobcat-640 drives pixel pitch down to 20μm from conventional levels of 25μm, at an overall resolution of 640 x 512 pixels.
