Goldeye CL-033 TECless - High-speed TECless VGA InGaAs camera

The Goldeye CL-033 TECless high-speed camera is the fastest VGA resolution short wave infrared camera (SWIR) with Camera Link interface. Frame rates up to 301 fps at full resolution enable you to access versatile application fields and to speed up your processes. Thanks to its very affordable price, many cost-sensitive applications 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. In addition, 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.
Several on-board image correction features contribute to the Goldeye's outstanding image quality.

General features

  • Automatic exposure time control
  • Gain (analog)
  • I/O configuration and trigger control
  • Stream hold (deferred image output)
  • Storable user sets
  • Firmware update in the field
  • Region of interest (ROI) control, Look-up table (LUT) support, as well as various Auto-Features
  • Adjustable pixel clock frequency
  • Support for Camera Control (CC ports) signals
  • Automatic acquisition start after booting the camers

Goldeye cameras are compatible with Allied Vision's Vimba SDK. Moreover, in combination with our 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 cameras are very sensitive in the SWIR spectrum. They can be used in an extended operating temperature range. Thanks to 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 (for example, through fog or night vision)
