Photon etc. Announce the Release of the Fastest Affordable SWIR Camera on the Market

Photon etc. is proud to announce the release of the Zephir™ 2.5 MCT Camera, the fastest affordable SWIR camera on the market. Based on a 320x256 HgCdTe FPA, Zephir™ offer a high quantum efficiency on the range 0.8 to 2.5 µm and most importantly an unmatched frame rate of 346 Hz.    

First developed for industrial imaging applications requiring high-speed, this camera is now available in its C-Mount version or including a standard objective with 16 mm focal length and a field-of-view of 33.4 x 27 degree. The low dark current and readout noise of Zephir™ allow longer acquisition times than other SWIR cameras (1 µs to 150 ms), making it an ideal tool for low-light scientific and hyperspectral imaging.  

Zephir™ 2.5 MCT Camera.

Two distinct hyperspectral systems were developed based on this camera, S-EOS™ and a line-scan system. S-EOS™ is a widefield imaging system constinuously tunable over the range 1 to 2.5 µm with a FWHM < 4 nm. From bio-medical applications to material analysis, S-EOS™ will help discover uncharted scientific discoveries. On the other hand, our line-scan spectrograph based system is the perfect device too for sorting or quality control applications.  

“Reliability and high frame-rate MCT cameras were paramount for industrial applications of our clients - says Simon Lessard, Director of Electronic and Software Engineering and Product Manager of Zephir™ -, but we could not find such specifications on the market. Thus, we developed Zephir™ having in mind these needs. Furthermore, the four stages TE cooling system makes it a great camera for more demanding scientific research programs like biomedical imaging or advanced material analysis.”
