Small camera covering visible to near infrared

Bobcat 640 VisNIR from Xenics

Bobcat 640 VisNIR is a high performance near infrared camera which covers a wide spectral range from the visible to the near infrared.

  • 400 nm - 1700 nm broad band detector
  • Large format array
  • Thermoelectric cooling
  • GigE or CameraLink for easy integration
  • SDK for own programming available

Further information

The ultra-compact Bobcat-640 meets all requirements of applications where small size, low power consumption but high sensitivity and low dark current in the VisNIR and SWIR range are needed.

The Bobcat-640 is perfectly suited for high speed imaging at full 640 x 512 resolution with high frame rates of 100 Hz. In windowing mode the frame rate can even be further increased. A thermoelectric cooling for low dark current and optimized noise performance (90e-) results in superior image quality even in those cases where the operating conditions are changing.

The VisNIR option extends the wavelength into the visible realm for best sensitivity in low-light applications. The pixel pitch of 20 μm makes the Bobcat-640 compatible with a broader range of C-mount lenses and other lower-cost lenses. Lenses are easily changeable.

Bobcat 640 is available with either a GigE or a CameraLink interface for a fast14 bit digital readout.
