Raptor has enhanced its range of cooled CCD cameras with the launch of the Eagle 1MP. Using a back-illuminated CCD (1056 × 1027 pixels with 13μm × 13μm pixel pitch), the camera is air-cooled to -80°C to minimize dark current for longer exposures. Using low noise electronics, it offers 2.3e- readout noise. It is available in C-Mount with an integrated shutter and is the smallest camera in its class at 140mm x 126mm x 120mm.
Come and visit Raptor at Shanghai International Expo Centre (SNIEC) for Laser World of Photonics China 2022 from March 23-25th 2022. We will be there with our partner Beijing Starlight Technology Co., Ltd

Raptor Photonics has launched the Ninox 640 SU, a vacuum cooled InGaAs based camera with 640×512 sensor with a 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch for the highest spatial resolution. The Ninox 640SU is vacuum cooled to -80°C for ultra-long exposures of up to 5 minutes. Its ultra-low dark current and read-noise result in the best “scientific” SWIR camera on the market today. It is the perfect camera for staring applications in SWIR wavelengths (from 900nm – 1700nm) including NIR-II In-Vivo Imaging, Fluorescence Imaging and Astronomy.
Raptor Photonics was set up in September 2006 to design and manufacture high-performance cameras for a range of markets including scientific, surveillance, aerospace and industrial. The company has grown year on year and now sells cameras in over 50 countries around the world to a range of instrumentation companies, government bodies, research labs and universities.
Raptor has become the market leader in SWIR camera technology and our cameras are used in a variety of applications including low light day and night-time imaging, spectroscopy, fluorescence, high-energy X-Ray, time-resolved, in-vivo imaging. Raptor’s cameras can be found in instrumentation from the sea-bed to space, including the ISS. They can also be found on the microscopes, spectrometers, beamlines and telescopes of some of the world’s leading research establishments and OEMs. The high-performance of Raptor’s cameras are helping customers to discover new ways of seeing.
Raptor has offices in Larne, Northern Ireland and Norcross, Georgia, United States and works with a variety of channels and distributors around the world to service and support customers.
Raptor Photonics welcomes two new members of staff to the sales team. Joe Graham joins the team as Sales Manager. As a key part of Raptor’s growth strategy to expand and pursue new markets, Joe will be responsible for growing sales worldwide. Joe is qualified in Mechatronic engineering and previously held leadership positions in the telecoms industry.
Cameron Black comes on board as Technical Support Engineer. Cameron will be responsible for product support with our customers, primarily in Europe and Asia and is a welcomed addition to our team as we focus on providing excellent customer service. Cameron is a qualified Electronic Engineer and has worked previously in QC and support roles.
