allPIXA SWIR 1K GigE C-Mount


allPIXA SWIR and Corona II illumination –
Real time, non-destructive inspection and sorting process with fast line rate and high sensitivity.

allPIXA SWIR is the first short-wave infrared line scan camera in Chromasens' allPIXA family.
The state-of-the-art InGaAs sensor in a compact footprint allows its integration for multiple machine vision applications and is covering an extremely wide wavelength range from 950 to 1.700 nm

allPIXA SWIR offers an uncooled sensor with 512 and 1k resolution and 12.5 μm pixel size for high resolution, high sensitivity and a line rate of 40 kHz. GenICam compliant GigE Vision and CameraLink interfaces allow an easy integration into existing machine vision systems.

Materials that look identical to the human eye can be differentially visualized in the SWIR spectrum. All Materials absorb light in different ways. Within this wide wavelength range, many substances can be identified by their typical absorption characteristics and they can easily be distinguished.

Typical applications are plastic sorting, seed & grain sorting and substance determination or detection of impurities in pharmaceutical processes.

allPIXA SWIR is the ideal solution for material identification, sorting of recycling materials, fruit, vegetables, seeds, grains and qualification of food. Contaminants and foreign objects (e.g. stones) in Seed & Grain Sorting can easily be detected.

Recycling, Plastic Sorting, Nondestructive Testing and Other Applications

In the SWIR range the camera can see through many printing inks, plastic, silicon, packaging materials, and can thus be used for non-destructive testing.

For example

  • Fill Level Measurements
  • Presence Checks
  • Semiconductor Inspection
  • Recycling
  • Plastic Sorting

can be carried out even through the closed packaging.

Humidity measurement is also a great help for qualification of food (fruit, rot, bruises). In addition to the moisture content, the SWIR range can also be used to determine the sugar, starch, alcohol and acid content of many samples, for example, to determine the freshness or degree of ripeness of food. Also several gases that are completely transparent in the visible range can be easily detected in the SWIR range.
