Fast, low-noise, SWIR InGaAs camera
Manufacturer's part number :
C-RED 2 is a revolutionary ultra-high-speed, low-noise camera designed for high resolution Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) imaging. Thanks to its state-of-the-art electronics, software and innovative mechanics, C-RED 2 is capable of unprecedented performances – up to 400 images per second with a read-out noise from 10 to 30 electrons.
To achieve these breakthrough performances, C-RED 2 integrates a 640 x 512 InGaAs PIN Photodiode detector with 15 μm pixel pitch for high resolution, which embeds an electronic shutter with integration pulses shorter than 1 μs. C-RED 2 is also capable of windowing and multiple regions of interest (ROI), allowing faster image rate while maintaining a very low noise.
The software allows real time applications, and the interface is Camera Link full and superspeed USB3.
C-RED 2 is designed to be updated remotely, and needs no human assistance to manage the cooling. The camera can operate in very low-light conditions as well as remote locations.
C-RED 2 is easily embeddable in any system thanks to its low volume, and can operate in any environment or complex situations.
Designed for high-end SWIR applications, smart and compact, C-RED 2 operates from 0.9 to 1.7 μm with a very good quantum efficiency over 70%, offering new opportunities for industrial or scientific applications.
