The Piranha HS NIR is a cost-effective solution for imaging in near-infrared wavelengths from 700 to 1050 nanometers. It operates using selectable TDI stages, up to a maximum of 256, and has an area mode of operation for ease of alignment. The camera can be programmed with up to four user sets of coefficients and can utilize mirroring control, forward/reverse control, and flat field correction.

Key features

  • Enhanced sensitivity in NIR and 256 TDI stages provide excellent electroluminescence at 1000 nm wavelengths of light
  • High resolution images of 8192 x 256 TDI pixels
  • 320 Mpix/s throughput and 34.3 kHz line rate allow faster inspection times and higher productivity
  • Bidirectional operation greatly reduces cost by simplifying inspection process
  • 100x anti-blooming
  • Camera Link interface
