The Gobi+ cameras are based on an uncooled microbolometer detector with a 640 x 480 pixel resolution. The Gobi+ offers frame rates up to 60 Hz and lower detector NETD options (<30 mK available upon request). The camera is designed for use in scientific & advanced research, medical and process monitoring applications.

The Gobi+ is based on a 17µm pitch two dimensional microbolometer array with VGA resolution (640 columns of pixels by 480 lines). This highly sensitive camera can detect differences in temperature as low as 0.05°C and can output data at 60 frames per second. It exists with CameraLink and GigE Vision output and control interfaces, and is GenICam compliant, making it simple and straightforward to integrate into industrial systems. The key feature of the Gobi+ for thermography is its calibration. The camera can be calibrated in temperature. The use of such a calibration pack makes it a very accurate system for absolute temperature measurement.

Software and accessories

Software Software

Our standard IR software, Xeneth, is included with this camera. Find out more: Software | Xenics

Lenses Lenses

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.


Frame Grabbers Frame Grabbers

The Xenics product range includes several products that require a frame grabber card to connect the camera to a PC.

The Euresys GRABLINK full, Imperx VCE-CLEX01 and National Instruments PCIe-1433 frame grabbers are fully integrated in Xeneth and the Xeneth SDK. This means that you can use Xeneth software both to control the camera and to grab images, making abstraction of the proprietary frame grabber software.

Other frame grabbers properly integrating the CameraLink and GigE Vision protocol can be used in Xeneth and the Xeneth SDK, however only for command and control of the camera. To grab images, you rely on the dedicated software provided by the frame grabber vendors.


Cables & Power Supplies 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.

Cases Cases

Xenics ships its infrared cameras all over the world in high-grade custom cases. As our infrared cameras are of different sizes, we have several case-types in stock guaranteeing a tight fit. The cases are made of polypropylene which makes 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.
