Allied Vision updates Goldeye infrared camera with an InGaAs sensor

July 30, 2014 - Allied Vision updates Goldeye short-wave infrared camera with an InGaAs sensor. With its InGaAs sensor, its sensitivity ranges from 900 to 1,700 nm. This makes the Goldeye suitable for demanding industrial and scientific vision applications beyond the visible spectrum – for example quality inspection in the photovoltaic or semiconductor industries and multispectral imaging.

The Goldeye is fitted with an active cooling module (Thermo-Electric Cooling). Cooling the sensor by up to 30K reduces dark current and hence the noise in the images. Sophisticated image optimization algorithms correct defect pixels or InGaAs-inherent non-uniformity within the camera. Along with the sensor cooling, this ensures the Goldeye delivers an outstanding image quality to the image-processing application. With further features such as exposure settings, analog and digital gain as well as Lookup Tables for enhanced contrast, users can adapt the image settings to their own personal needs.

Infrared cameras are often designed primarily for scientific imaging and are not always perfectly suited for industrial use. The Goldeye can sustain harsh operating conditions. The rugged housing supports an extended temperature range from -20°C to +50°C. It also features fitting screw threads on all sides but the rear to easily and securely mount the camera into an automated system. System integration is also made easier by the multiple trigger and synchronization possibilities given by the I/O port (2 in / 3 out) and the RS232 interface.

The sensor cooling system is fan-less and fully integrated into the housing. This makes the Goldeye an extremely compact camera. With measurements of 55 x 55 x 78 mm, it is one of the smallest SWIR cameras with Gigabit Ethernet interface. The interface complies with the GigE Vision standard for industrial image-processing and supports Power over Ethernet. One cable is enough to power the camera and transmit image data over up to 100 meters.

Goldeye is available with C-mount, F-mount or M42-mount.
