Sofradir, globally renowned infrared technologies designer and sensor manufacturer, and Allied Vision Technologies, global manufacturer of machine vision cameras, have announced the availability of Goldeye G/CL-033 TECless, a cost-effective SWIR (ShortWave Infrared) industrial camera designed with Snake SW Tecless technology. Using Sofradir’s Snake SW Tecless detector, Allied Vision’s Goldeye cameras have VGA resolution housed in very compact housing (55x55x78mm), allowing integration into systems with limited space.

Allied Vision designed its new model Goldeye G/CL-033 TECless industrial cameras around the Snake SW Tecless sensor due to the uncooled detector’s small footprint (0.65in2, 3.23cm2), the compatibility of its frame rate (300 frames per second) within most industrial in-line inspection requirements and its availability in large volumes. In addition, the detector is distinguished by its exceptional level of performance in terms of low noise and image quality. Snake SW Tecless is manufactured based on the cost-efficient high-volume standards typically used for visible image sensors, which makes SWIR technology more affordable in cost-sensitive applications such as industrial machine vision.

Goldeye G-033 TECless with Snake SW Tecless is among the fastest GigE Vision compliant SWIR cameras on the market. The camera achieves an outstanding image quality due to multiple image correction features such as non-uniformity, defect pixel and background correction. It offers advanced features including auto-contrast, look-up tables and comprehensive I/O control. By selecting smaller Regions-of-Interest (ROI), the camera’s frame rate can be increased even further, and image data processing can be optimised
