Home Products Shortwave Infrared Swir Wildcat+ 1280
Xenics Wildcat+ 1280 Image

The Wildcat+ 1280 series is based upon a state-of-the-art InGaAs photodiode array with 1280×1024 pixels and 5 μm pixel pitch. The camera offers superior, high-resolution SWIR imaging capabilities, comes in a versatile and industry-proven Wildcat camera package (GenICam compliant) and offers advanced on-board image processing.

The Wildcat+ 1280 camera outputs full frame images at 120 Hz via either a CameraLink or USB3 Vision interface.
