Portable digital UV cameras

Sarnoff Corporation has introduced three new portable deep ultraviolet cameras with 512 x 512 or 1K x 1K resolution at speeds of 16 or 55 frames per second.

Sarnoff Corporation has introduced three new portable deep ultraviolet (UV) cameras with 512 x 512 or 1K x 1K resolution at speeds of 16 or 55 frames per second (fps).

The new cameras are the first models in Sarnoff’s Mark V Series, a product line focused on low-speed imaging applications such as forensics, microscopy, spectroscopy, corona detection, and deep UV laser material processing.

The 16 fps camera is available in two models. The Mark V Series 512-16-FT sports a 512 x 512 resolution, while the 1024-16-FF offers 1K x 1K resolution – both operating in full-frame transfer format. Both have a standard CameraLink-compatible output port and two optional Firewire or USB output ports.

The 55 fps camera, the Mark V Series 512-55-SFT, offers 512 x 512 pixel resolution in split-frame-transfer format.

The imager used in the Mark V Series cameras has a 6.6 µm square pixel size, and an optional AR coating is available.

All three cameras can be ordered with standard UV or optional visible response. Data format is 10 bit, with 14 bits optional. Users can select built-in binned or unbinned readout timing modes through RS232 commands.

They can also use their own binning patterns, region of interest patterns, or special triggering modes.
