Raptor introduces two new cameras - the Eagle V and the NINOX 640

Raptor Eagle V

Raptor Eagle V


29 October 2014

Raptor launches the Eagle V, a “best in class” deep cooled vacuum based CCD using Raptor’s revolutionary vacuum technology PentaVacTM. The Eagle V uses a 4MP CCD42-40 Back Illuminated, AIMO sensor from e2v technologies. The sensor is 2048 x 2048 pixels with 13.5μm x 13.5μm pixels, with full well capacity of 100,000e- enabling optimum photon collection and a large field of view imaging combined with ultra-sharp image resolution. The Eagle V achieves a QE greater than 90% at 525nm and 50% at 380nm & 720nm.

PentaVac technology combined with multistage TECs and liquid allows active cooling to temperatures lower than delta 110°C, delivering extremely low dark current (0.0001 e/p/s) for exposure times of up to several hours. The Eagle V runs at 16-bit digital output through a Cameralink data interface delivering low read out noises, 2.3 e- rms @ 75kHz pixel readout rate. The camera also operates @ 2MHz pixel readout rate, with 9.0 e- rms.

Raptor launches the NINOX 640

NINOX 640, a cooled VIS-SWIR InGaAs camera
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.
