Core competencies

Xenics is the leading developer of innovative infrared detection solutions for a wide range of applications. Xenics designs, manufactures and sells infrared detectors and cameras, both line-scan and 2-D, covering the infrared wavelength ranges from 0.4 to 14 micrometers. In addition, Xenics delivers custom products according to the agreed specification and planning. As a European vendor with a worldwide service and distributor network, Xenics is strategically placed to serve global markets with highly innovative products drawing on a strong science and technology background.

Where do Xenics’ infrared cameras add value to security applications?
Our Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) cameras based on in-house InGaAs technology are perfectly suited for utilising the nightglow phenomenon. They can see objects with excellent clarity also in a moonless night. One of the advantages of our cameras is that the nightglow is emitted equally by the entire sky, and at all geographical latitudes. If required illumination sources (e.g. specific lasers), which are invisible for the human eye, can be applied to highlight and identify objects at very long distances.

To offer a product portfolio which covers the complete wavelength range, our cameras also make use of passive Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) technology. This technology offers the advantage to capture the temperature radiation of warm-blooded living creatures, humans as well as animals in total darkness.
