XSW-640 OEM module

Xenics’ XSW-640 OEM module is extremely compact and versatile for easy and swift integration in your SWIR imaging configuration.

Typical OEM applications include infrared imaging for man–portable and unmanned (airborne and land-based) vehicle payloads, night vision, border security, Search & Rescue (SAR) and more.

The XSW-640 OEM module detects short wave infrared radiation between 0.9 (optionally 0.4) and 1.7 μm with a wide dynamic range and wide operating temperature.

The Thermo Electric (TE) stabilization reduces the dark current and noise levels. Together with on-board image processing you will have best contrast and high image quality.
