In one compact housing, the Xeva-2.5-320 digital camera combines a four stage thermo-electrically cooled HgCdTe detector head and the control and communication electronics. With 320 x 256 pixel resolution and a spectral range from 0.85 to 2.5 μm it outputs 14 bit data and comes in a 60fps or 100fps version.
The Xeva-2.5-320 interfaces to a PC via standard USB 2.0 or CameraLink and comes with a custom frame grabber card or can interface to standard frame grabber cards such as the Dalsa Excelera and X64 series. Each camera is delivered with a graphical user interface X-Control software, which offers direct access to camera settings such as exposure time and operating temperature. The software tools include two-point uniformity correction and bad pixel replacement. Also offered is an SDK for developers that supports C++, VB, Linux and LabView.
The CameraLink feature enables triggering for real time imaging up to
100 fps. Synchronization with external sources is straightforward in triggered
applications. For scientific image recording and analysis, both still
and dymanic images can be grabbed with optimal performance conditions
using the X-control software provided. As one of the smallest TE4-cooled
cameras on the market the Xeva can achieve long integration times with
4-stage Peltier Cooler resulting in reduction of noise and dark current
to produce high quality images in the SWIR range.
Some of the advantages of the Xeva-2.5-320 are quick highly-stable operating
temperatures, flexibility and ease-of-use and performance optimization
with easy and continuous access to control parameters such as integration
time and frame rate. It is also Spectrometer compatible with mount holes
provided on the body.
