SAN JOSE, CA, U.S.A., December 13, 2015 / -- TERASENSE, THE SYNONYM

With the help of the revolutionary and patent protected Terasense® technology, the company advents the market with High Speed Linear Terahertz Camera. Terasense Group, Inc., the leading manufacturer of Terahertz and sub-Terahertz imaging systems has added this new product with a wide range of applications to their arsenal. With its existing range of products including THz imaging camera, THz generator, THz detectors the company is synonymous in this field and this new product with a plethora of applications added a new feather to their laurel.


With it’s never-before imaging speed and easy integrating facilities, the High-Speed Linear THz camera is ideal for many industrial process applications that employ high speed conveyor belt for quick transfer of the products. This camera is provided with extremely fast linear sensor arrays for doing nondestructive testing and quality control for a wide range of industrial applications.

This ultra fast camera has two key elements: the THz imaging camera and the THz generator. These two elements are mutually optimized and synchronized for delivering the best imaging experience even at a high speed.

Further, the THz generator section is configured with a specially designed horn antenna for covering the entire cross section of the belt so that nothing passes undetected. The antenna spreads the radiation beam uniformly and also ensures that the THz power is efficiently delivered from the generator to the camera for perfect imaging.
