Short-wave infrared (SWIR) cameras with InGaAs sensor technology

Goldeye – Imaging beyond the visible spectrum

Goldeye cameras are equipped with InGaAs sensor technology making them sensitive in the short wave infrared spectrum ranging from 900 nm to 1,700 nm. All Goldeye SWIR cameras can be operated at very high frame rates and capture outstanding low-noise images. They are the perfect choice for industrial and scientific applications beyond the visible spectrum. All Goldeye models are available with either a Camera Link or a GigE Vision interface.

          Stabilzed sensor temperatures using thermo-electric cooler (TEC)


          Goldeye cameras support active and passive thermal management features and are available in two housing designs. The compact, rugged industrial version is available either with or without single-stage thermo-electric cooler (TEC) that support model-specific both sensor cooling and heating to optimize the adoption to environmental conditions and ensure reproduceable imaging results.

          The advanced scientific version is equipped with single- or dual-stage TEC that is integrated into a nitrogen filled cooling chamber to enable strong sensor cooling by up to 60K without condensation and to capture images at very long exposure times. Here the heat generated by the TEC is removed by an internal fan that can be switched off to prevent image artefacts caused by vibrations.


          The active sensor cooling is supported by the robust heat dissipative alluminium housing enabling an extended operating temperature range for Goldeye cameras.

          Perfectly connected – thanks to powerful software


          Have you heard of Vimba, our future-proof and platform independent SDK (software development kit)? Thanks to our in-house software you can easily integrate Goldeye cameras with GigE Vision interface into any system and manage them centrally. Vimba runs on Windows, Linux, and Linux for ARM. With Vimba, you can acquire images and control your Allied Vision camera instantly, program complex vision applications or connect to third-party libraries. Goldeye cameras with Camera Link interface can also be configured easily via Vimba SDK. To capture/stream images you have to use the frame grabber SDK.
