Ninox ULTRA 640 SWIR

High resolution, low noise, Deep cooled, digital SWIR camera


Raptor Photonics continues to push the boundaries in scientific SWIR imaging with the launch of the Ninox Ultra, a vacuum cooled to -85C InGaAs camera, offering ultra-low dark current for longer exposures of up to 5 minutes. Combining low read noise of <30e- in high gain and dark current of <100e/p/s at -85C, the Ninox Ultra is one of the most sensitive SWIR cameras available on the market. It offers 640x512 resolution and 15um square pixel pitch and runs at 100Hz in full resolution through a CameraLink interface. The Ninox Ultra also offers high-intrascene dynamic range of 70dB enabling simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene. The Ninox Ultra follows on from the launch of the Ninox 640 and Ninox 1280 cameras, which have attracted a lot of interest in applications including astronomy and in-vivo imaging. The Ninox Ultra is also available for sale in China and Russia.
