As a dynamic SWIR camera with unique performance and features, it's a compact solution that incorporates advanced image processing features to enhance its utility and performance in diverse conditions and multiple applications.

What is SWIR Imaging?

Short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) cameras operate in the 0.7 to 1.7 μm (900 to 1700 nm) wavelength range, making them suitable for a wide range of applications and environments. Since this spectrum is beyond visible light and unseen to the naked eye, SWIR camera technology allows for effectively capturing clear images where traditional cameras cannot.

These cameras are also known for their ability to capture images in low-light conditions and through certain materials, including atmospheric fog and other visual obstructions, making them a popular choice in industrial and scientific applications.

Some key features of SWIR cameras include versatility in various settings, such as high-speed imaging in manufacturing and quality control processes, and the ability to penetrate certain materials ideal for inspections not possible with visible light.

SWIR cameras are one of the most affordable infrared cameras that are lightweight and compact, making them an ideal portable imaging system. They are designed for a range of applications including precise color measurements and advanced chemical imaging.
