Bobcat 320 - SWIR Camera

The Bobcat-320-Gated SWIR camera operates in the 0.9 to 1.7 µm spectral band. It provides extremely short integration times down to 100 ns. The Bobcat-320-Gated makes use of a highly sensitive TE1 cooled InGaAs detector that has a 20 µm pixel pitch. This compact gated imaging camera contains real-time on-board image processing and image correction. All at a very favorable price point.

A special feature of the Bobcat-320-Gated is the programmable trigger-out delay between the internally generated trigger-out pulse and the start of integration. It is configurable from 100 ns up to 1 ms in steps of 100 ns, or 1 ms to 40 ms (in standard mode). With all these features, the Bobcat-320-Gated SWIR camera is ideally suited for gated imaging applications and the inspection of hot or fast moving objects.
