- Affordable Camera Link SWIR camera
- Compact industrial design, no fan
- Simple camera configuration via GenCP
Goldeye CL-008 - High-speed, low-cost InGaAS camera
The new Goldeye CL-008 is one of the fastest QVGA resolution short wave infrared (SWIR) cameras with Camera Link interface. With frame rates up to 344 fps at full resolution, versatile application fields can be addressed and processes can be sped up strongly. Thanks to its very affordable price, many cost-sensitive applications, where the lower resolution is sufficient, can benefit from the camera's outstanding performance.
Save time and money to integrate the camera into your system: a small form factor and multiple mounting options let the camera fit easily into compact system designs. Additionally, its standardized Camera Link interface with GenCP support and comprehensive I/O control options simplify the connection to your software solution and the synchronization with other system components.
The integrated thermo-electric sensor cooling and several on-board image correction features contribute to the Goldeye's outstanding image quality.

Goldeye cameras are very sensitive in the SWIR spectrum. They can be used in an extended operating temperature range. Thanks to TEC cooling and integrated image correction, Goldeye cameras achieve an outstanding image quality with little noise and a high dynamic range. They are well-suited for many typical SWIR applications in various industry branches:
- Semiconductor industry: solar cell and chip inspection
- Recyling industry: plastics sorting
- Medical imaging, sciences: hyperspectral imaging, microscopy, OCT
- Metal and glass industry: thermal imaging of hot objects (250 °C to 800 °C)
- Agriculture industry: airborne remote sensing
- Printing industry: banknote inspection
- Electronics industry: laser beam profiling
- Surveillance and security: vision enhancement (e.g., through fog or night vision)
