Hamamatsu Launches Its First InGaAs Line Scan Camera

Posted Nov 05, 2019 by

Leading manufacturer of devices for generation and measurement of infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light, Hamamatsu, has launched an InGaAs line scan camera for inline non-destructive inspection using SWIR (short-wavelength infrared) imaging. Joining Hamamatsu's wide variety of SWIR and NIR (near-infrared) imaging technologies, the new C15333-10E camera is the company's first InGaAs line scan camera.

It is a high-sensitivity, low-noise camera with a fast line rate, and it is suitable for industrial needs. Its high sensitivity in the SWIR region from 950 nm to 1700 nm, 1024-pixel array with 12.5 µm x 12.5 µm pixel size, and built-in pixel correction functions all contribute to high-accuracy inspection. This camera also ensures highly efficient and high-throughput inspection thanks to its fast line rate (40 kHz max.) and GigE interface.

In addition, the camera's compact design and low cost make it easy to integrate into inline inspection systems. Its dimensions are 49 mm x 49 mm x 100 mm, and it weighs only 250 g. In terms of cost, it is less expensive than InGaAs 2D cameras.

Hamamatsu will be showcasing the InGaAs line scan camera at Photonics West 2020 in San Francisco, CA, on February 4-6, 2020. To see a product demo, visit booth 1227.
