5 MP UV-sensitive area scan camera
The GO-5000M-PGE-UV is a monochrome area scan camera equipped with a special UV-sensitive CMOS imager. It provides 5-megapixel resolution at 22 frames per second, with 8-bit, 10-bit, or 12-bit output. Spectral sensitivity ranges from around 250 nm to nearly 1000 nm, providing options for UV, visible, and NIR uses. Features include binning, single- and multi-ROI modes, Sequencer, built-in high dynamic range modes, and more.
Equipped with special version of the Lince5M CMOS global shutter imager, the GO-5000M-PGE-UV is able to extend its sensitivity down to 250 nm, allowing visualization of smaller features than those which can be seen using visible light.
Quartz glass protection
Traditional cover glass on a CMOS sensor blocks UV imaging. But if left uncovered, imagers can be easily dirtied or damaged. The GO-5000M-PGE-UV’s imager is protected by a quartz glass cover with double AR coating to protect the sensor’s surface while allowing UV rays to pass.
Compact and versatile
Like other Go Series cameras, the GO-5000M-PGE-UV features a compact, lightweight design, enabling it to fit easily into many types of machine vision systems. A standard GigE Vision interface offers easy cabling and networking options.
Here are a few applications where Go Series UV-sensitive cameras are especially suitable
Go Series UV-sensitive cameras are the perfect starting point for a number of specialized machine vision applications.
Semiconductors UV cameras let inspection systems utilize extremely short light wavelengths so the smallest defects or surface features can be imaged and analyzed.
Vision systems for track and trace, pill sorting, inspecting vials and ampoules, and many other applications, often need to be able to “see” invisible product codes, lot numbers, or other markings.
Security printing inspection
Bank notes, passports, lottery tickets, and other similar items may use special security markings only visible in the UV spectrum.
Electronics and corona inspection
Solar panels and other types of electronics may need UV imaging to look for signs of current leakage or other defects. UV cameras are also used to inspect power lines and transformers where non-visible “coronas” can indicate electrical problems.
UV lighting and imaging can detect damaged skin and subsurface issues at early stages before they become serious.
