VDS Vosskühler GmbH was acquired by Allied Vision Technologies in January 2011 and is now part of Allied Vision Technologies GmbH headquartered in Stadtroda, Germany. The Osnabrück facilities and staff are now integrated in the AVT group and remain committed to the development and production of high-quality cameras under the AVT brand.
VDS Vosskühler's most popular infrared, high-speed and cooled CCD camera models have been integrated into AVT's product range. You can find an overview of the new range below.
Those former VDS Vosskühler products that have not been integrated into the AVT range are legacy and no longer available as a standard camera for new customers. However, they are still supported for existing customers and may be available on special request on a case-to-case basis. Please refer to the VDS Vosskühler legacy website for more information.
The AVT Goldeye series are short-wave infrared camera (SWIR) with a spectral response from 900 nm to 1700 nm. Its InGaAs sensors feature high sensitivity, very good linearity, and a high damage threshold against intense illumination.
The AVT Pearleye camera family incorporates uncooled microbolometer sensors. With their maintenance-free sensors, a temperature reference element and Peltier temperature stabilizing, the cameras reliably detect temperature differences < 80 mK. Image correction features ensure an excellent image quality.
The AVT Bonito is a high speed camera with a sensitive global shutter CMOS sensor. The Bonito CL-400B/C runs 386 fps at 4 Megapixel resolution and has an ultra-fast 2 x 10-tap Camera Link Full+ interface. Considerably higher frame rates can be reached with a smaller ROI (region of interest).
The AVT Bigeye is a low noise CCD camera. It satisfies even the highest expectations for excellent image quality. The peltier cooling provides a superior signal-to-noise ratio even with very long exposure times.
