Xenics and Stemmer Imaging broaden European distribution partnership for industrial IR cameras

Xenics nv of Leuven, Belgium - a manufacturer of infrared detectors, cameras and customized IR imaging solutions covering the spectrum from long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) to the visible (0.4–14µm) - has extended the existing distribution agreement for its industrial IR cameras with Europe's largest imaging technology provider Stemmer Imaging of Puchheim, Germany. The new agreement adds Germany and Austria to Stemmer’s distributorship in the UK and France.

“The new agreement enlarges the potential for quick and easy imaging systems integration,” says Xenics’ sales manager Europe Guido Deutz, noting the small-form-factor layout, broad range of available lenses and support for industry-standard data interfaces of Xenics’ industrial IR cameras, specifically for for industrial automation, machine vision and process control applications. 

“Based on the positive response from our customers and system partners in the UK and France, our distributing these industrial IR cameras in Germany and Austria will be a very promising widening of our sales and support territories,” believes Stemmer Imaging’ managing director Christof Zollitsch. “We see excellent prospects for attractive new application areas.”

The Xenics product portfolio included in the distribution partnership comprises industrial IR cameras in the visible to short-wave infrared (Bobcat, Cheetah and XS) and long-wave infrared (Gobi). Also included are the industrial versions of Xenics’ highly sensitive line-scan cameras (Lynx) in the short-wave infrared realm (one of Xenics’ core capabilities).

As presented and introduced at the Vision 2012 event in Stuttgart, the functional and performing highlights of Xenics cameras - such as Bobcat, Gobi and Lynx - are their standard data interfaces such as GigE Vision, CameraLink and (soon to come) CoaXPress. Applications of these industrial cameras include food inspection, solar systems testing and electronic component manufacturing.

“Extending our partnership with Stemmer Imaging in the industrial IR segment will further strengthen the capabilities of our European customers in developing effective and reliable solutions for their specific requirements,” says Xenics’ founder & CEO Bob Grietens. “Now many more industrial users will utilize the IR spectrum by closely working with a strong technology partner, to the benefit of their own customers,” he believes.
