Acuros SWIR Cameras

Acuros SWIR Cameras

Acuros® CQD® SWIR cameras provide high-resolution imaging and sensing capabilities across the visible, near-infrared (NIR), and shortwave infrared (SWIR) spectrum. The cameras are built using SWIR Vision System’s CQD photodiode sensors with spectral response from 400 nm to 1700 nm. They feature high frame rates, global shutter operation, and up to 70 dB of dynamic range.

Acuros CQD SWIR cameras are designed to meet the imaging requirements of demanding industrial applications. They provide system integrators, vision solution providers, and end users the flexibility of programmable frame time, exposure time, gain modes, window modes, binning modes, and more. Designed for use in multi-tool imaging systems, they can be operated with an internal clock or can be externally triggered via software or a hardware TTL trigger input.

The family of Acuros cameras is available in a variety of Acuros sensor sizes:
– 6.3 MP, 3064 x 2040 format sensor
– 4.2 MP, 2048 x 2048 format sensor
– 2.1 MP, 1920 x 1080 format sensor
– 1.2 MP, 1280 x 1024 format sensor
– VGA, 640 x 512 format sensor

While InGaAs SWIR cameras, such as the Sony IMX990, are generally constrained to VGA and 1.3 MP sensor formats, our pioneering CQD sensor technology enables 2.1 megapixel, full-HD resolution; the first commercial SWIR product of its kind. Inherently low-cost CQD sensor processing enables lower costs per megapixel than comparable InGaAs SWIR Cameras.

All of the Acuros cameras have an EAR-99 export classification which requires no license for export globally. This makes them the ideal choice for integration in global, multinational supply chains and manufacturing operations.
