LUCID Launches SWIR Camera Featuring Sony SenSWIR 

By Joel Davies -

LUCID Vision Labs, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of industrial vision cameras, has launched new Atlas SWIR IP67-rated 1.3 MP and 0.3 MP cameras.

The Atlas SWIR is a GigE PoE+ camera featuring wide-band and high-sensitivity Sony SenSWIR 1.3 MP IMX990 and 0.3 MP IMX991 InGaAs sensors, capable of capturing images across both visible and invisible light spectrums and boasting a miniaturized pixel size of 5μm. The camera’s capability of imaging on the short-wavelength infrared light spectrum makes it useful for multiple industrial applications like inspection and sorting, packaging, IR microscopy, semiconductor inspection, material sorting and more.

The Atlas SWIR camera is equipped with integrated single-stage thermoelectric sensor cooling (TEC1) for superior image quality and extended operating temperature range. Its Factory Tough™ design offers IP67 protection, Power over Ethernet (PoE+) and provides protection against shock, vibration, water, dust, and electromagnetic interferences.

“We’re excited to introduce the Atlas SWIR IP67 camera and expand our imaging capabilities from the visible spectrum to SWIR wavelengths”, said Rod Barman, President at LUCID Vision Labs. “The advances in performance and functionality of the Sony IMX990 and IMX991 sensors will further enhance a diverse range of applications such as inspection, identification, and measurement”.

The Atlas is a GigE Vision and GenICam compliant camera capable of 1 Gbps data transfer rates and allows the use of standard CAT5e and CAT6 cables up to 100 meters. Atlas features Power over Ethernet (PoE) that “simplifies integration” and “reduces cost”.

The camera also features Active Sensor Alignment for superior optical performance, a 60 x 60 mm size, M12 Ethernet and M8 general-purpose I/O connectors for a robust connection, industrial EMC immunity and a wide ambient temperature range of -20°C to 50°C.

All LUCID cameras conform to the GigE Vision 2.0 and GenICam3 standards and are supported by LUCID’s own Arena software development kit. The Arena SDK provides customers with easy access to the latest industry standards and software technology. The SDK supports Windows, Linux 64bit and Linux ARM operating systems, and C, C++, C# and Python programming languages.

The new Atlas ATP003S-WC and ATP013S-WC models are now available to order.
