The Xenics Cheetah - Fastest Infrared Camera in the World

The Xenics Cheetah-640CL near infrared InGaAs (Indium Gallium Arsenide) camera is the fastest infrared camera in the world. This unit is equipped with a dedicated high-speed InGaAs detector array working up to 1.7 ?m and comes in 120, 400 and 1730 Hz versions. It allows visualisation of ultra high-speed features for fast industrial inspection tasks and specific research applications. The Xenics Cheetah-640CL also offers the flexibility to use multiple C-mount lenses, and therefore brings high-speed imaging capabilities to the next performance level!
