CCS releases SWIR LED lights over 1000 nm for non-visible imaging
Kyoto, Japan – CCS has expanded its standard lineup of LED infrared lights to include wavelengths over 1000 nm (1050, 1200, 1300, 1450, 1550, and 1650 nm), extending the benefits of LED technology to non-visible imaging for image processing inspection in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) range.
Demand for SWIR imaging solutions has increased due to its ability to perform inspections that are not possible with visible light, such as imaging moisture content and imaging through opaque packaging. Recent advancements have made SWIR sensors more compact with higher resolution and increased sensitivity to cover the range from 900 to 2500 nm.
CCS’s new SWIR lights have 3.4x the intensity of conventional infrared lights to capture clear images even with shorter shutter speeds and faster inspection lines. The initial launch features a SWIR bar light to suit a variety of applications, with plans to introduce ring, flat, dome and spot lights as well.
