Owl 640 N

Ultra Low Readout Noise (18e-) Digital VIS-SWIR Camera

Using next-generation technology, Raptor has launched one of the lowest noise VIS-SWIR cameras on the market, perfect for imaging in low light conditions. Using a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor, and the sensor stabilised to 15°C, the Owl 640 N offers a visible response from 0.6µm to 1.7µm to enable a high sensitivity. The camera also offers the lowest readout noise on the market with a typical value of 18 electrons. The camera has a high intra-scene dynamic range of typically 73dB, enabling simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene.

Available with a 14 bit base Camera Link output, the Owl 640 N will run at frame rates up to 120Hz. The camera features an on-board Automated Gain Control (AGC) which enables the best contrast imaging from low to bright light as well as an on-board intelligent 3 point Non-Uniform Correction (NUC), providing the highest quality images. As with all Raptor cameras, the Owl 640 N is compact and rugged.
