Extended perception

Properties of light that are invisible to humans can be made visible with cameras from SVS-Vistek. These cameras extend the standard industrial image processing system in terms of polarization planes or wavelengths from infrared to ultraviolet.

The invisible
see and measure

Wavelengths from infrared to ultraviolet enable invisible markings, the identification of materials and much more. Properties of light such as polarization facilitate industrial inspection in many industrial applications with non-metallic materials. We offer highly sensitive cameras for technical and biological applications.


  • SWIR wavelengths up to 1,700 nm
  • UV wavelength range from 200 nm
  • Only one sensor for SWIR and VIS wavelengths
  • High quantum efficiency and sensitivity
  • Measurement of the polarization angle
  • Separate intensities for horizontal and vertical polarization
  • Proven industrial machine vision design
  • GenICam and GenTL interface
  • Depending on model with GigE Vision, 10GigE, CoaXPress-12 or USB3 Vision interface

Industrial design

Rear of two black cameras, one with 10 GigE Vision connection and the other with USB3 Vision connection. Both have Hirose/Powerful I/O connections.

All of our special cameras for invisible properties of light are based on the proven camera concepts of the EXO series and the FXO series. While the EXO covers the established GigE Vision and USB3 Vision interfaces, the FXO series can provide the highest frame rates with its high-speed 10GigE and CoaXPress-12 interfaces.

A close thermal connection of the low-power optimized electronics and the sensor to the housing enables operating temperatures of up to 60°C. The integrated power I/O interface enables simple control tasks to be performed with hardware precision via the PLC functionality. Up to 4 LED lights can be controlled directly without additional drivers, ideal for the identification of materials. All Beyond Visible cameras from SVS-Vistek have the following features: Region of Interest (ROI), logical trigger functions (PLC) with programmable timers, sequencers and logic, electrical and optical inputs are specified with TTL-24V.
