Tigris 640 - Midwave Infrared

The Tigris-640 is a cooled midwave infrared (MWIR) camera equipped with a state-of-the-art InSb or MCT detector. It has a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a pixel pitch of 15µm. This thermal camera is equipped with a number of unique features including a motorized filter wheel. Interfacing is either done via its GigE Vision or CameraLink output. Analog out, HD-SDI and triggering are also available. 

The Tigris-640 is available with an MCT or InSb detector and each version is available with a BroadBand option. This option allows you to increases the sensitivity of the camera into the shortwave infrared (SWIR) realm. 

The Tigris-640-MCT offers 14-bit MWIR images at a maximum full frame rate of 117 Hz. The Tigris-640-InSb features a digital detector with selectable 13, 14 or 15-bit ADC, and high gain or high dynamic range mode. This version offers a maximum frame rate up to 357 Hz. If that is still too slow you can increase the frame rate by using its window-of-interest (WOI) mode.

All Tigris versions are optimized for highly stable thermal imaging and thermography in R&D and industrial applications.
