Sofradir, one of the leading makers of advanced Infrared (IR) detectors for commercial , defense, and aerospace markets recently introduced Snake SW Tecless, one of the smallest footprint high-resolution SWIR (Short Wave Infrared Detector). The practical applications of this Tecless includes surveillance, industrial, and commercial applications like security monitoring tasks, thermography, sorting, inspection, and so forth. Snake SW Tecless offers important cost benefits for camera makers along with one of the best signal-to-noise ratios in industry and Fast Frame Rates as high as 300fps.
It is one of the first shortwave infrared detectors that works without a cooler in the commercial market. This new design expands the capacity of the company to provide system developers with compatible solutions for identification of defects and perform a close analysis of raw materials including other vision tasks that work beyond the visual boundary of visible cameras and aim to enhance manufacturing yields. The Sofradir VP marketing, Claire Valentin, says that, “Snake SW Tecless extends Sofradir’s SWIR product line aimed at industrial, scientific and security applications. We have shrunk the size of the IR detector to enable easier integration into small footprint cameras, whilst achieving a frame rate that is compatible with most industrial in-line inspection requirements. We are excited about the potential our small footprint Snake SW Tecless offers in opening up new machine vision opportunities for our clients. Sofradir continues to deliver state-of-the-art solutions to meet customer requirements and push performance to new horizons. We look forward to engaging with customers on the benefits of deploying our high speed, low noise SWIR technology for vision tasks.”
Snake SW Tecless is one of the smallest footprint VGA SWIR is based on InGaAs which is proprietary technology of Sofradir. The latest uncooled package represents just 1/5th of physical dimensions of other Sofradir Snake SW detector products.
