Sierra-Olympic Offers WDR Shortwave IR Camera Systems

HOOD RIVER, OR --- Sierra-Olympic Technologies offers New Imaging Technologies’ (NIT) wide-dynamic-range (WDR), indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) shortwave infrared (SWIR) sensors and camera systems. The new SWIR imaging product family delivers a dynamic range greater than 140dB in a single snapshot, without any processing or tone mapping. Ideal for biomedical, laser measurements, welding, semiconductor, art inspection, and process control, the NIT WDR sensors’ internal Fixed Pattern Noise correction offers high uniformity images under all lighting conditions.

The new InGaAs photodiode array features a patented readout integrated circuit (ROIC). Available in 640 x 512 (with 15-micron pitch) or 320 x 256 (with 25-micron pitch) pixel resolution; both operate in the SWIR spectrum from 900 nm up to 1700 nm with high quantum efficiency. Power consumption is less than 1.5W. By design, the proprietary NIT ROIC has proven to be highly functional for fast, triggered imaging applications such as range-gated imaging and synchronous illuminated imaging.

NIT’s SWIR 640 and 320 camera modules offer digital video outputs in USB2.0 or Camera Link® formats. Analog NTSC/PAL video is available on the Smart version cameras. The SWIR family of cameras with wide dynamic range is delivered calibrated, with software and cables in shock-proof cases. The cameras are easily exported under EAR.
