USB3.0 SWIR OEM Linescan Camera Minds The Budget

Promoted as being affordable, the company’s OEM version of its LineCam12 is an indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) linescan camera that operates from 0.4 to 1.7 µm in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) and visible spectrum. Providing USB3 Vision and Camera Link digital outputs, the camera features a 1024 x 1 pixel format with a 12.5 µm pitch, It can be powered by USB3.0 in most applications. According to its maker, it is the only SWIR linescan camera currently available with USB3 Vision and the only USB3 camera that can image SWIR and visible light simultaneously. The SWIR-InGaAs 1024-element linear array can image over 37k lines per second and comes in two models: the LineCam12-12.5-1.7T-OEM with 250 µm tall pixels for spectroscopy, and the LineCam12-12.5-1.7M-OEM with 12.5 µm square pixels for machine vision tasks. Both versions can be configured with customized settings including high temperature operation at +70°C or cold operating temperatures of -40°C. For more info, peruse
