Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Cameras

The Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) part of the infrared spectrum offers unique capabilities for various applications in machine vision, R&D, medical, security, process control and transportation. Below you will find the large selection of Short Wave Infrared cameras that we offer from Xenics.

Most of Xenics SWIR linescan and area detectors are developed in-house and based on a material called InGaAs (Indium Gallium Arsenide). These detectors are sensitive in the wavelength range from 900 to 1700 nm.


The Product Table provides a comprehensive list of features so you can compare all the Infrared Camera models at once and then select the one you want further information on.
