Wave Series
Short wave infrared line scan cameras

The Wave Series WA-1000D-CL camera is a dual-band 1K line scan camera capable of sensing Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) light. The camera is based on Indium/Gallium/Arsenide (InGaAs) sensor technology and JAI’s prism line scan technology, making it capable of delivering dual-band imaging in the SWIR light spectrum (900 – 1700 nm).

Provides extra “hidden” vision data

JAI SWIR camera technology can enhance current machine vision systems with imaging beyond what is possible when imaging the visible and/or the near infrared light spectrum. The Wave camera can provide lots of extra “hidden” vision data.

Dual-band imaging capability

With two separate imaging channels, Wave Series cameras leverage subtle differences in absorptive and reflective properties at specific wavelengths to sort or analyze substances in ways that aren’t possible using a single spectral band.

High performance prism technology

With a single optical path feeding two prism-mounted imagers, Wave Series cameras have no moving parts to wear out like filter wheel cameras, and can precisely align the dual spectral images even when objects are moving at high speeds.


  • Simultaneous dual-band imaging in the Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) light spectrum.

  • 2 x 1024 pixel resolution in two SWIR bands: 900-1400 nm and 1400-1700 nm.

  • Single optical path maintains two-channel alignment at up to 39 kHz (39,230 lines/second).

  • Image pre-processing includes pixel gain correction, flat-field correction, LUT/gamma function, and more.

  • Camera Link interface available with Dual-Base configuration or 2-tap Medium configuration.

  • Large variety of off-the-shelf optics available in comparison with MWIR cameras that require custom lenses and windows made of expensive materials.

  • No cooling required.

  • A robust design for outstanding reliability and durability in industrial environments.

Typical applications where Wave Series industrial cameras are suitable

Inspection of dryness level in food processing

The Wave Series camera can be used to inspect overall dryness levels in various food processing applications such as dried fruit and tea leaves.

Inspection of fruit and vegetable quality

JAI’s SWIR camera can be used to gauge ripeness of picked produce on bulk conveyers, as well as detecting dents, bruises or rot under skin and various contaminants

Dryness level in industrial materials

The Wave Series camera can be used to determine water concentration and dryness levels in various industrial materials or coating processes.

Sorting of polymer plastic

Potential identification of different kinds of polymer plastic passing down a sorting conveyer belt for material re-use and proper disposal of environmentally hostile plastic compounds.
