Product description

VIS-SWIR Camera OWL 640

The OWL 640 is a rugged, high sensitivity digital VIS-SWIR camera with a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor.  The 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch enables highest resolution VIS-SWIR image and with less than 50 electrons readout noise the OWL 640 enables the highest VIS-SWIR detection limit.

Key features of the SWIR camera

  • 14 bit CameraLink output. Enables high speed digital video with intelligent auto AGC
  • On-board Automated Gain Control (AGC). Enables clear video in all light conditions
  • On-board intelligent 3 point NUC. Enables highest quality images
  • Ultra compact, Low power (< 5 W). Ideal for hand-held, mobile or airborne systems
  • Rugged, No fan. Enables integration into OEM platforms

Applications of the of the SWIR camera


  • Astronomy
  • Beam Profiling
  • Hyperspectral Imaging
  • Semiconductor Inspection
  • Solar Cell Inspection
  • Thermography
