The SVS-Vistek exo990MGE camera can deliver the full 1.3 MP resolution at 94.4 FPS. However, if you reduce the camera's effective resolution by setting an area of interest, the frame rate will increase. For example, with a 128 x 128 AOI, the exo990MGE can deliver ~720fps in 8-bit mode and ~440fps in 12-bit mode. Furthermore, the large internal memory enables capturing a burst of images that are then sent over Ethernet, as bandwidth allows.

This camera, built on the Sony IMX990 image senor, combines a standard GigE Vision interface with the ability to solve unique imaging problems.

SWIR (short-wave infrared) cameras can reveal features that are otherwise invisible. See flaws, contaminants, and moisture in a variety of materials. Imaging in NIR or SWIR can often see through features you wish to ignore, such as pigments, fog, and some plastics. SWIR can also be used to differentiate between some chemicals based on their different absorption spectra. For example, at 1450 nm, a bottle of water is opaque but a bottle of mineral oil is transparent.

Using SenSWIR technology from Sony, this camera produces a homogeneous image across wavelengths ranging from 400 to 1700 nm. This can enable innovative solutions that combine images captured in the visible, NIR, and SWIR ranges. Use the camera's integrated 4-channel strobe controller to power one of our multi-channel SWIR LED lights.
