Xenics Expands SWIR Camera Lineup with New 2048 Pixel Options for Lynx R and XSL R Series

Posted  by GoPhotonics


Xenics, part of Photonis group, a pioneer of infrared technology, has expanded its linear short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera portfolio with the May launch of Lynx R and XSL R series. Now the company has revealed more options (2048 rectangular pixels) for the Lynx R and XSL R series.

Lynx R series is a line-scan SWIR camera with rectangular pixels while XSL R is a line-scan SWIR camera core with rectangular pixels. Both are embedded with in-house designed and manufactured sensors. Xenics can also support packaged sensor supply.

The Lynx R and XSL R series is an affordable option for demanding applications (spectroscopy, optical fibre monitoring, LiDAR sensing and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography) with the following features:

  • High speed line-scan imaging up to 40 kHz (10 kHz for the 2048)
  • High resolution of 1024 or 2048 rectangular pixels option (12.5μm x 250μm)


Xenics continuously strives to meet the needs of its customers and provide solutions for demanding applications.

With the latest addition of a 2048 pixel to the R line-scan family and together with the existing linear SWIR products like Lynx SQ, XSL SQ, Manx SQ and Manx R, Xenics is now offering a robust linear portfolio. The increase of pixels enables a better measurement accuracy, a larger field of view or a high performing OCT implementation.

All the linear SWIR products are GenICam® compliant and a compatible Linux SDK is optionally available to make Xenics product integration straightforward in industrial systems.

With the availability of industry standard interfaces like CameraLinkTM, GigE Vision, 16bit DV (only for XSL R version), Lynx R and XSL R series is indeed a versatile and robust offering in the linear SWIR product portfolio for demanding machine vision applications.
