P-008 SWIR

  • Goldeye P-008 SWIR SWIR camera with InGaAs sensor, 320 × 256 pixels, optional cooling

SWIR camera with InGaAs sensor, 320 x 256 pixels, optional cooling


The Goldeye P-008 SWIR is a camera for short-wave infrared applications. It has a spectral response from 900 nm to 1700 nm. Its InGaAs sensor features high sensitivity, very good linearity, and a high damage threshold against intense illumination. The camera is optionally available with Peltier cooling. The Peltier cooling option is recommended for applications with long exposure times, or for exact temperature measurements.


Benefits and features:

  • InGaAs sensor, spectral range 900 nm to 1700 nm (SWIR)
  • 30 μm x 30 μm cell size, effective chip size 9.6 mm x 7.68 mm 
  • Excellent Quantum Efficiency at 1.0 μm -1.6 μm
  • 118 fps at full resolution or 186 fps with reduced resolution (320 x 160)
  • C-Mount, compatible with standard machine vision lenses
  • GigE Vision, also available with Camera Link interface



  • Peltier cooling for long exposure times and exact temperature measurements

In combination with AVT’s AcquireControl software, extensive image analysis functions are available:

  • Pseudo color LUT with several color profiles
  • Auto contrast
  • Auto brightness
  • Analyze multiple regions (rectangular, circle) within the image
  • Real-time statistics and histogram display

Goldeye SWIR cameras are very sensitive in the short-wave infrared spectrum, show excellent linearity, and tolerate intense illumination. They are the perfect choice for numerous SWIR applications:

  • Short-wave infrared imaging
  • Thermal imaging of hot objects (in a range from 250°C to 800°C)
  • Semiconductor inspection
  • Water or moisture detection
  • Imaging spectroscopy
  • Laser beam profiling
  • Plastic sorting
  • Medical science and biology
  • Vision enhancement
