NIT SWIR cameras are designed to face highly challenging environments, robustly dealing with applications where there is a level of vibration, as well as a wide range of temperatures.
Short-wave Infra-Red (900nm to 1700nm) goes beyond the visible spectrum and provides the ability to image objects/scenes otherwise invisible to standard cameras and humans. This technology creates a powerful solution to numerous applications and differs from thermal imaging which relies on radiated photon detection;
- Imaging though fog/haze/atmosphere; fire, drizzle, gas/steam, atmospheric haze.
- Detecting foreign bodies/contaminants; clear separation of object types otherwise undefinable to a visible camera
- Water/moisture; highly absorbent in SWIR which means it will appear much darker than other liquid/objects in the scene
- Classification/detection of chemicals; chemicals absorb light in the SWIR range and so what may look a clear liquid in visible light, will have a defined gray-value in SWIR
Industries benefiting from this technology include Security/Surveillance, Food and Agriculture, Night Vision, Object/Material sorting, Textiles and more.
The WiDy (Wide Dynamic) SWIR camera series from NIT covers a wide wavelength range from 900nm to 1700nm. All cameras are supplied with application software enabling live image acquisition, Raw and AVI video recordings and ease-of-use camera synchronisation. Combine with world leading image processing software, MVTec’s HALCON, to create powerful automation solutions.
