Raptor Photonics, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance digital cameras has launched the World’s first SWaP Optimised ½” / VGA sensor with VIS-SWIR Response. With a 10µm x 10µm pixel pitch, the Owl 640 T has less than 50 electrons readout noise, with a high intra-scene dynamic range of 69dB that enables simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene.
Available with a 12-bit Camera Link output, the Owl 640 T runs from 10 to 60Hz. The camera features an on-board Automated Gain Control (AGC) which enables the best contrast imaging from a dark to bright imaging scene, as well as an on-board intelligent 3 point Non-Uniform Correction (NUC), providing the highest quality images. The Owl 640 T offers ½” optical design, taking advantage of a smaller and lighter lens. The camera is the ideal solution for the Mini UAV and Gimbal market and hand-held integrated systems.
As with all Raptor cameras, the Owl 640 T is ultra-compact and rugged. The camera uses a Thermometric cooler to stabilize the sensor temperature with no fan being used.
The camera comes with a range of analysis software including XCAP and Micromanager and a standard CameraLink frame grabber (EPIX).
