The Cheetah-640 is the world's fastest InGaAs Infrared camera. It is a full format high-speed infrared camera fitted with on-board memory and image processing capabilities for unique high-speed image processing. The Cheetah-640 is perfectly suited for applications that require high resolution infrared images at high frame rate operation.

This unit is equipped with a dedicated high-speed InGaAs 640 x 512 pixel detector array sensitive from 0.9 to 1.7 µm and comes in a 400 and 1700 fps version. Fitted with a single stage thermoelectric cooler it offers high quality low noise images. The Cheetah-640 allows you to visualize your specific infrared research application when it's too fast to see. The camera records images into 16 GByte of internal memory, which allows for up to 8 seconds of recording at full speed. Interfacing to a PC for visualisation setup, control and image downloads is done via Gigabit Ethernet or CameraLink.

The camera is delivered with a graphical user interface Xeneth, which allows you to easily grab still or dynamic images under optimal performance conditions. It offers flexibility in setting control parameters such as integration time, operating temperature, frame rate, saving images in various formats and executing initial image analysis. Transfer of data to mainstream text or data processing tools is straight forward, giving you a wide variety in data treatment capabilities. The software tools also feature two-point uniformity correction and bad pixel replacement. Also offered is an SDK for developers that supports C++, VB, Linux and LabView.

Advantages of the Cheetah-640 include: on-board memory for high speed sequence capture; crisp motion analysis; flexibility and ease-of-use and reliable data transfer. Other features include External Trigger Input, two Gain modes, C-mount for interchangeable lenses and multiple windows to further increase frame rate to a maximum 360,000 fps.

Applications for the Cheetah-640 camera include:

Research and Development (SWIR range)
Thermal imaging of hot objects (300°C to 800°C range)
High-speed imaging
Medical applications
