The Atlas SWIR is packed with industrial features designed to provide reliable operation in challenging environments.
Power Over Ethernet (PoE+)
IEEE 802.3at allows for both power and data over a single Ethernet cable, reducing overall costs and simplifying installation and maintenance.
Active Sensor Alignment
Each camera’s sensor is actively aligned to minimize image sensor tilt, image sensor rotation, and to place the center of the image sensor at the lens optical axis
M12 and M8 Connectors
Designed for secure connections and error free operation in vibration environments and shielded to protect against electrical interference
100m Cable Lengths
Compatible with cost-effective CAT5e, CAT6, CAT6a, CAT7 cabling for gigabit Ethernet bandwidth with a maximum cable length of 100m.

Advanced SWIR Pixel Technology
What can a SWIR camera do?
SWIR is sensitive to water and can be used to detect moisture in fruits and vegetables. Differences in moisture levels can show up as bruising in produce. In the example above, normal wavelengths (left) are unable to detect any bruising but SWIR can detect bruising in the apples (right).
Different objects of the similar color and shape can be hard to differentiate from each other. SWIR wavelengths are absorbed and reflected differently depending on the object’s material (right). This can be used to detect foreign objects that might overwise go undetected using visible light (left).
Checking fill levels of packages is difficult under visible light (left), especially is the packaging has printed graphics on it. Certain opaque plastic packaging becomes transparent under SWIR wavelength (right). This can be used for fill level inspection or check seal integrity for heated seal package in the food industry.
Different compounds looking similar under visible light may absorb SWIR wavelengths differently. In this example flour, baking soda, and sugar are aligned left to right. By selecting a specific narrow band of the SWIR the spectrum it’s easy to discriminate between the various materials. This is well suited for application in the pharmaceutical industry where identifying different compounds with certainty is critical.
SWIR can be used to inspect silicon wafers as silicon becomes translucent at wavelengths around 1100nm to 1400nm (right). While visible light can be used to help detect issues on the front-side of the wafer (left), SWIR allows foreign objects or imperfections to show up more easily on both the front-side and back-side of the wafer.
Certain materials do not change color in the visible light spectrum as they heat up (left). SWIR is much more sensitive to detecting temperature changes from 100°C to over 1600°C in objects (right).
Thermoelectric Cooling (TEC) For Consistent Imaging Performance
Relative Dark Current
The Atlas SWIR camera is equipped with an integrated single-stage thermoelectric sensor cooling (TEC1) for superior image quality and extended operating temperature range. The TEC1 offers a Delta T up to 30°C. In addition, the Atlas SWIR IP67 camera integrates an internal heatsink to quickly dissipate sensor heat to the camera case. The TEC, combined with an internal heatsink and aluminum case design, allows consistent imaging performance between -20 to 50°C case temperature.
