The Ninox 640 II is the next generation of the highly successful Ninox 640. With an ultra low typical readout noise (rms) of 18 electrons and a typical dark current reading of <750e- at -15°C, the Ninox 640 II improves even further on it’s noise performance. The mechanical design of the camera is also much improved and the camera is significantly more compact than the initial Ninox 640. With dimensions of 87.30mm x 78.86mm x 79.30mm and weighing 550g, it is one of the most compact and lightweight scientific SWIR cameras available on the market.
The Ninox 640 II is a cooled, high sensitivity digital SWIR camera. Using a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor, the Ninox 640 II enables high sensitivity imaging from 0.4µm to 1.7µm. The 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch enables a high-resolution SWIR image and with a typical readout noise (rms) of 18 electrons, the Ninox 640 II enables the highest SWIR detection limit. Available with a 14 bit Camera Link output, the Ninox 640 II will run up to 120Hz, enabling high-speed digital video with intelligent Automated Gain Control (AGC).
