Use the UV Cameras across various applications

The ace 2 X UV cameras operate within the ultraviolet (UV) spectral range. Similar to the Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) range, materials exhibit different optical properties here compared to the visible range. This makes the technology particularly suitable for specialized applications beyond visible wavelengths:

UV cameras enable effective inspection of wafer material, even below the visibility limit, including surface inspection. They offer the capability to capture finer features and structures with higher resolutions in the short-wave UV range.

Different materials such as glass and plastics (PVC, PET, PMMA, and PC) exhibit varying levels of UV light transmission. This allows for differentiation based on their optical properties and facilitates sorting during recycling processes.

UV cameras are instrumental in inspecting security features beneath the surface during the production and examination of banknotes and ID documents, identifying errors or forgeries. Additionally, they enable the inspection of special printing inks within the UV spectrum.

Detecting scratches or cracks on the surface of solar systems is crucial at an early stage in the production chain. UV cameras facilitate the automation of production processes and quality controls, enabling comprehensive testing from individual silicon blocks to complete photovoltaic cells.
