Cooled VGA SWIR InGaAs OEM Module: PSEL VGA 15 μm

Photonic Science’s OEM versions come with unique form factors or cooling options and are available for integration into specific systems or instruments.

The modules make use of specific InGaAs focal plane arrays with low defective pixel count and low dark current.

As a result of stable offset and efficient cooling, the InGaAs camera enables reproducible acquisition for accurate metrology measurements in the SWIR spectrum.

Camera Link and Gigabit Ethernet Vision compliant interface enable simple integration into present systems.
