Home Products Shortwave Infrared Swir XSL Series
XSL Series Detector

The XSL is a compact SWIR linescan module available with either rectangular or square pixels.

This SWIR linear detector features an in-house developed InGaAs sensor with 512 (square pixel only), 1024 and 2048 resolution options .

The XSL camera modules are able to image line rates up to 40 kHz and comes with an industry-standard CameraLink, GigE Vision or QTE Samtec interface.
