Allied Vision has integrated Sony's modern SenSWIR InGaAs sensors in its popular Goldeye SWIR camera series.

The integration allows the cameras more sensitivity in both visible and short-wave infrared (SWIR) spectrums.

The Goldeye G-030 is equipped with the Sony ¼ inch VGA sensor IMX991, which provides a frame rate of 234 fps at a resolution of 656 x 520 pixels. The 1.3 MP Goldeye G-130 comes with the Sony IMX990 1.3MP SXGA sensor (1280 x 1024 pixels) and offers a maximum frame rate of 94 fps.

Both cameras utilize Sony’s SenSWIR technology with both models being made available with GigE Vision interface and integrated single-stage thermo electric sensor cooling (TEC1).

Sony's new SenSWIR technology combined with innovative InGaAs sensor architecture, creates a quantum leap in pixel size and image homogeneity while allowing image acquisition in the visible and short-wave infrared ranges (400 nm to 1700 nm) with high quantum proficiency.

This will considerably expand the application possibilities of Goldeye SWIR cameras regarding the spectral analysis of objects and increase the precision of details detected, all enabled by a small pixel size of only 5 µm. 
According to Allied Vision, both camera models feature:

  • Robust, compact, and fanless design optimized for industrial applications
  • Integrated single-stage sensor cooling (TEC1)
  • Several integrated image correction functions
  • Comprehensive I/O
  • GenICam standard compliant feature control
