New Xenics Bobcat 320×250 TE0 no cooling or WL windowless SWIR InGaAs Camera, 0.9-1.7um, 400Hz

Xenics released new line of low cost uncooled and windowless SWIR cameras based on their InGaAs detectors.



Small, low cost, uncooled windowless SWIR InGaAs camera

  • Windowless SWIR InGaAs camera
  • 320×256 pixels
  • 20 µm pitch
  • GigE
  • Frame rate up to 400 Hz
  • 110 e- noise
  • up to 56 dB dynamic range

The Bobcat 320 TE0 and WL windowless SWIR series are based on an in-house developed, uncooled InGaAs detector with a 320 x 256 pixel resolution.

The Bobcat 320 TE0 and WL windowless SWIR cameras are offered with GigE Vision interface, 400 Hz maximum frame rate and feature low weight and power.

The Bobcat 320 WL comes with a windowless SWIR uncooled detector, specifically targeting laser beam analysis and laser wavefront sensing applications.

Benefits & Features

  • Low cost

Our standard IR software, Xeneth, is included with this camera.


Our cameras are compatible with a wide variety of lenses.

We do not manufacture our own lenses, but instead offer a variety of third-party lenses that can be purchased directly from us. We guarantee compatibility for any lenses purchased directly from Xenics.

Cables & Power Supplies
Xenics develops flexible and modular cameras resulting in a wide variety of camera interfaces. All these interfaces require unique cabling which we keep in stock. Next to interface cables we also offer separate power supplies.

Xenics ships its infrared cameras all over the world in high-grade custom cases. As our infrared cameras have different sizes, we have several case-types in stock guaranteeing a tight fit. The cases are made of polypropylene which make them very sturdy. They are dustproof, watertight, stackable and can cope with temperatures between -40 °C and 80 °C. In addition they are equipped with an automatic air pressure compensation valve allowing us to ship the cameras all over the globe.

Most of our infrared cameras come with a standard hardshell case upon purchasing.


A filter can be fitted in the C-mount lens adapter of most Xenics cameras. The following Xenics SWIR cameras have a standard filter holder in the C-mount adapter (only one filter can be mounted and filter has to be 25.4 mm in diameter):

  1. Bobcat 320 and 640
  2. Cheetah 640 CL
  3. Xeva 320 (exceptions: Xeva 2.35)
  4. Lynx

In order to lock the filter in the c-mount adapter, the following filter retainer ring has to be ordered from Xenics, part number: MEC-000614

For a list of suitable filters, please directly contact the filter supplier, Spectrogon, for filter purchases. Please check camera and filter documentation for compatible wavelength ranges.
