5 MP UV area scan camera
The GO-5000M-PGE-UV-1 is a compact industrial area scan camera delivering UV imaging capability along with an excellent blend of size, versatility, performance, and price. It delivers 5-megapixel output at up to 22 fps, with flexible ROI and binning capabilities that enable the camera to be tailored to various UV imaging applications in the 300 to 400 nm range.
Small and lightweight
Like all Go Series cameras, the GO-5000M-PGE-UV-1 measures 29 x 29 x 41.5 mm (excluding lens mount) and weighs only 65 grams enabling it to fit into small spaces or be mounted on vehicles or robot arms where size and weight are critical.
With usable UV sensitivity down to around 300 nm, the GO-5000M-PGE-UV-1 provides an attractive alternative to the size, power, and cost of scientific UV cameras for applications in the UVA and upper UVB regions.
Quartz glass protection
The GO-5000M-PGE-UV-1 imager is protected by a quartz glass cover with double AR (anti-reflective) coatings to protect the sensor from dirt and damage while maximizing light transmission compared to standard cover glass.
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.
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.
