Raptor launches the NINOX 640, a cooled VIS-SWIR InGaAs camera


Raptor Photonics, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high performance digital cameras has launched an additional member to its family of SWIR and Visible SWIR cameras. The NINOX 640 is cooled to -20ºC offering both TEC and water cooling options, significantly reducing dark current and enabling longer exposures.

Using a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor from SCD, the NINOX 640 offers visible extension from 0.4µm to 1.7µm to enable high sensitivity imaging. The 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch enables highest resolution imaging. Available with a 14 bit CameraLink output, the NINOX 640 will run from 10 to 120Hz enabling high speed digital video. A new feature On-board Automated Gain Control (AGC) will enable clear video in all light conditions. The NINOX 640 also features an on-board intelligent 3 point Non Uniform Correction (NUC) algorithm which will provide the highest quality images.

Applications that can be used with the NINOX 640 including hyperspectral imaging, semiconductor inspection, solar cell inspection, astronomy, telecommunications and thermography.
