Xenics Lynx

Shortwave infrared (SWIR) line scan camera

The Xenics Lynx range of high sensitivity uncooled InGaAs (Indium Gallium Arsenide) line scan cameras utilise Xenics' latest technology to offer high performance SWIR imaging in a highly compact package.

Lynx cameras are ideal for a wide range of quality assurance applications. The small form factor and sensor size allow high precision imaging while supporting the creation of small vision systems at the same time.

Reasons to choose the Xenics Lynx

SWIR imaging with high speed

With a line rate up to 40 kHz and a 14-bit A/D conversion, the Xenics Lynx is perfectly suited to high speed scanning tasks such as online quality inspection.

High resolution sensor

The Lynx features line widths up to 2k pixels. This exceptionally high resolution helps detecting even very small production failures and solve even difficult SWIR applications.

Reliable inspection of silicon based material

As silicon-based material only becomes transparent at a wavelength of 1350 nm, SWIR imaging is used for photoluminescence inspections in the solar industry. Material defects, inclusions or fractures are visible. These non-contact and non-destructive testing techniques enable rejects of substandard objects at an early production stage, resulting in increased production efficiency, reduced production cost and improved quality
