The Ninox-640 is a cooled, high sensitivity digital SWIR camera. Using a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor from SCD, the Ninox 640 enables high sensitivity imaging from 0.4µm to 1.7µm. The 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch enables a high-resolution SWIR image and with less than 50 electrons readout noise the Ninox 640 enables the highest SWIR detection limit. Air cooled to -15°C, the Ninox 640 reduces dark current to typically <1,500e/p/s, allowing for longer exposure times. Available with a 14 bit Camera Link output, the Ninox 640 will run from 10 to 120Hz, enabling high speed digital video with intelligent Automated Gain Control (AGC).
