HD Format Digital SWIR InGaAs Camera: OWL 1280

The OWL 1280 from Raptor Photonics is a digital short-wave infrared (SWIR) InGaAs camera in HD format, ideal for surveillance and scientific imaging applications including range finding, vision enhancement, astronomy, and hyperspectral imaging. The camera utilizes a 1280 x 1280 sensor for SCD that offers visible extension from 0.4 µm to 1.7 µm, and 10 µm x 10 µm pixel pitch for the highest resolution imaging.

The OWL 1280 is available with 2 x 2 binning to operate at 640 × 512 resolution and 20µm pitch for ultimate low light vision and high speed applications. It features less than 35 electrons of readout noise, which enables the highest VIS-SWIR detection limit. Additional characteristics include on-board Automated Gain Control (AGC) for clear video in all light conditions, and an on-board intelligent 3 point Non Uniform Correction (NUC) algorithm providing the highest quality images.
