Imaging & Arrays

High performance infrared and near infrared detectors and accessories from New Infrared Technologies (NIT) enable high speed infrared images for analysis in applications as diverse as welding defect detection, manufacturing process monitoring, quality inspection, flame detection and defence protection systems.

Our Products

Pacer offers high performance infrared detectors (IR detectors), near infrared detectors (NIR), MWIR detectors and accessories (NIR or near IR) from New Infrared Technologies (NIT).

The NIT infrared detector range enables very fast, low cost and low power consumption MWIR detector systems. TACHYON FPAs combine integrated readout circuitry (ROIC) and fully uncooled MWIR performance, available as 32 x 32 or 80 x 80 pixel formats. The microCORE TACHYON module offers optimised size and is easy to integrate into cost sensitive machine vision or process control applications at an affordable cost.

The NIT range also includes Lepton single element detectors and the Luxell linear FPA with 64, 128 or 256 elements. CORE-S modules add lower cost solutions to the range, offering comparable functionality to the HS versions but at lower speeds.
NIT manufactures PbSe infrared detectors using a process called VPD (Vapor Phase Deposition) which enables the manufacture of bidimensional Focal Plane Arrays. The main characteristics of these VPD PbSe detectors are:

  • Complex detectors (Focal Plane Arrays),
  • Detection in the MWIR range (3 – 5 microns),
  • Uncooled performance at room temperature (D* > 10^9 Jones),
  • Photonic detection (time constant under 5 microsec).
