Introducing SenS 1280: HD SWIR Camera – Smart Version

POSTED 06/20/2023

SenS 1280 – Smart version

Introducing the SenS 1280 HD SWIR camera – Smart version, developed and produced in France. This camera delivers crisp, low-noise images with its impressive features: HD resolution, automatic gain control, and advanced image processing capabilities.

Key features

With a high-definition resolution of 1280×1024 pixels and a 10-micron pixel pitch, the SenS 1280 camera ensures exceptional image quality. It offers high sensitivity with a read-out noise of only 30e-, providing remarkable clarity and accuracy for capturing fine details – the best performance in the market(4 times more sensitive than a 5-micron pixel pitch).

Equipped with advanced onboard image processing, the SenS 1280 HD SWIR camera-Smart version guarantees unparalleled performance. Here’s what it offers:

  • Automatic Gain Control (AGC): Ensures optimal brightness and contrast levels, enabling precise detail capture even in challenging lighting conditions. This eliminates the need for manual adjustments and simplifies the imaging process.
  • Automatic Integration Time (AIT): The camera can automatically adjust the exposure time to match a target brightness eliminating the need for manual adjustments.
  • On-board Non-Uniformity Correction (NUC) and Bad Pixel Replacement (BPR):  Enhance image quality by correcting irregularities and replacing defective pixels.
  • Quantum Efficiency (QE) of over 80%: Maximizes sensitivity to shortwave infrared light, facilitating accurate detection and analysis.
  • Frame rate 60Hz full frame: Ensures smooth, real-time imaging, capturing objects with precision and accuracy.
  • Region of Interest (ROI): Improve overall imaging efficiency by allowing users to focus on specific areas of interest.
  • Genicam compliant

The embedded version of the SenS 1280 camera supports both CameraLink and SDI interfaces, providing flexibility and compatibility with a wide range of systems.

As a result, this camera is ideally suited for machine vision and surveillance applications.

The camera is now available to sale and it will be presented at Laser World of Photonics 2023, booth #A2.228/6
