Sofradir launches Snake SW Tecless, the smallest VGA SWIR detector supporting high volume industrial imaging applications

This small footprint SWIR detector aims to facilitate wider adoption of near infrared imaging for machine vision applications, where previously cost has been prohibitive.

Sofradir, the global leader in advanced infrared (IR) detectors for aerospace, defense and commercial markets, today announces the launch of Snake SW Tecless, the smallest footprint high-resolution (VGA) shortwave infrared detector (SWIR).
It is designed for use in high-volume industrial, scientific and surveillance applications, such as inspection, sorting, thermography or security monitoring tasks etc. Snake SW Tecless brings camera makers important cost benefits, whilst offering fast frame rates (300fps) and an industry-leading signal-tonoise ratio; key factors affecting a camera’s ability to perform at its full capacity.

Snake SW Tecless is the first shortwave infrared detector without a cooler that Sofradir has commercialized. This new design furthers the company’s capacity to bring compatible solutions to system developers seeking to identify defects or perform analysis of raw materials, among other vision tasks going beyond the capabilities of visible cameras and aiming at increasing manufacturing yields...
