OWL 640N, THE FIRST DIGITAL SWIR NIGHT VISION CAMERA ON THE MARKET
14 Apr 2021
Using next-generation technology, Raptor Photonics offers the world’s lowest noise VIS-SWIR cameras on the market, perfect for digital night vision and imaging in low light conditions. The Owl 640N offers ultra-low readout noise of <18e-. The sensor is 640 x 512 with 15μm square pixel pitch and offers visible SWIR wavelength coverage of 600-1700nm.
The camera has a high intra-scene dynamic range of typically 62dB, enabling simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene. Available with a 14-bit base Camera Link output, the Owl 640N will run at frame rates up to 120Hz. The OWL 640 N is also compatible with GigE though 3rd party converter.
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 real-time 3-point Non-Uniform Correction (NUC), providing the highest quality images in all conditions.
It is temperature stabilized, ultra-compact, rugged and low power making it ideal for hand-held, mobile or airborne systems.
Raptor also offers a range of custom options for OEMs including customized mechanics such as no C-Mount or M42, board level, extended operational temperature eg. -40°C to +75°C, flexi-rigid electronics to fit specific EO systems, digital video output eg HD-SDI. Raptor offers a selection of 3rd party SWIR optimised lenses.
Applications include 860, 1064 & 1550nm laser line detection, active Imaging, airborne payload, handheld systems, imaging through fog and mist, range finding and vision enhancement.
