The Cheetah-640CL is the world's fastest InGaAs Infrared camera. It is
equipped with a dedicated high speed
The high-speed InGaAs 640 x 512 pixel detector array is sensitive from 0.9 to 1.7 µm and has a maximum speed at full resolution of 1730 fps version. Fitted with a single stage thermoelectric cooler it offers high quality low noise images. The Cheetah-640CL allows you to visualize your specific infrared research application when it's too fast to see. The camera outputs images via its Dual CameraLink output and is compatible to many popular CameraLink grabbers including the Dalsa Xcelera and X64 series. It is also supported by IO Industries Streams5 high speed image to disk system.
Interfacing to a PC for visualisation setup, control and image downloads
is done via the CameraLink connection. The Cheetah-640CL configuration
tool allows you flexibility in setting control parameters such as integration
time, operating temperature, frame rate, etc. The Cheetah-640CL package
comes with an Interface Control Document (ICD) that makes it addressable
under popular programming languages such as C++, Visual Basic or on a
lower level under Linux, depending on your own choice of frame grabber
Advantages of the Cheetah-640CL include: high speed CameraLink output; crisp motion analysis; flexibility and ease-of-use and reliable data transfer. Other features include External Trigger Input, Hardware non-uniformity correction (NUC), C-mount for interchangeable lenses and multiple windows to further increase frame rate.
