Hamamatsu Introduces InGaAs Line Scan Camera for Inline Nondestructive Inspection

Reading time ( words)

Hamamatsu launched the C15333-10E InGaAs line scan camera for inline nondestructive inspection using SWIR (short-wavelength infrared) imaging. Joining Hamamatsu's wide variety of SWIR and NIR (near-infrared) imaging technologies, this camera is the company's first InGaAs line scan camera.

 The C15333-10E 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. The camera's 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.

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