Xenics and STEMMER IMAGING have signed an agreement for the distribution of the industrial infrared cameras from the Belgian manufacturer. STEMMER IMAGING’s offices in the UK and France have been distributing Xenics products for several years now and have gathered much positive experience with these IR cameras. Since March 1, 2013 the innovative Xenics products are now available from Europe’s largest imaging technology provider in Germany and Austria.
According to Christof Zollitsch, Managing Director of STEMMER IMAGING, his company is developing another interesting application field with this step: "The high-quality infrared cameras offered by Xenics have fully satisfied our quality demands. Based on the positive response from our customers and system partners in the UK and France, our distributing these industrial IR cameras in Germany and Austria will be a very promising widening of our sales and support territories. We see excellent prospects for attractive new application areas of Xenics' leading IR technology."
Also Guido Deutz, Xenics Sales Manager Europe, sees enormous potential thanks to this cooperation: It is a clear indication to the European market, that our cameras qualify for the requirements of the German and Austrian customers through the proven support of STEMMER IMAGING. Thanks to the excellent image quality and flexibility of the IR cameras for industrial process automation and machine vision in terms of their small –form-factor layout, large availability of lenses and support of standard data interfaces, the agreement enlarges the potential of quick and easy imaging systems integration through the software library Common Vision Blox. Extending our partnership with STEMMER IMAGING as a strong technology partner in the industrial IR segment will further strengthen the capabilities of customers in developing effective and reliable solutions for their specific requirements. Customers from other industrial nations have already confirmed that and I am convinced that this will also happen in Germany and Austria.“
Xenics designs and markets infrared cameras and infrared sensors in the visible to near-infrared and short-, medium- and long-wave infrared suited for innovative applications in research and industry as well as in surveillance technology. Widespread applications are found in food inspection, solar systems testing, electronic component manufacturing and many more. Xenics’ core competence here include high sensitivity area scan and line scan cameras for the SWIR, MWIR and LWIR ranges.
The cooperation with STEMMER IMAGING includes Xenics‘ camera series Bobcat, Gobi and Lynx. Among the functional and performance highlights of these series are their standard data interfaces like GigE Vision and CameraLink. The industrial interfaces of the Xenics IR cameras are the ideal combination with the frame grabbers and the CVB and Sherlock software environments offered by STEMMER IMAGING. Now STEMMER IMAGING can provide powerful systems with proven quality for infrared imaging as well as expertise, competent support and last but not least easy integration into important software packages.
