HighFinesse: High Speed InGaAs Infrared Cameras

IR Camera

HighFinesse infrared cameras are developed for a broad range of applications. From reasearch, development to industrial process control, HighFinesse cameras feature a robust design with high framerates, low weight and great dynamic range.

The Lynceus infrared camera is available as a standard 320 x 256 pixel version and a larger 640 x 420 pixel variant. Both cameras deliver excellent measurement results and offer convenient compatibility with PC driven operations.

No power cord

A distinctive feature of the Lynceus product series is the power supply via USB 2.0. No power cord is needed. This eases cable management at the measurement location.

Powerful software & SKD

HighFinesse offers a rich palette of software features such as: image stabilization, storing images and videos, image histogramm, line profiles, image correction algorithms (brightness, contrast, gamma), dynamic image transposition (top-top, left-right), time control, image live view, and array control. 


Possible applications involve water and moisture detection, profiling infrared laser beams and analyzing NIR spectra or lasers, testing silicon wafers, seeing through glass, viewing objects with temperature > 400 °C and sorting objects according to their NIR reflection behaviour.   

Raptor Photonics OWL 640 CameraLink

 owl HR White 002

The best performing VIS-SWIR / SWIR camera in the World! 

The OWL SW1.7 CL-640 is a rugged, high sensitivity digital VIS-SWIR camera. Using a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor from SCD the OWL enables high sensitivity imaging from 0.4µm to 1.7µm. 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.

Available with an analog output, the OWL 640 will run at 25Hz in CCIR and 30Hz in EIA, enabling high speed digital video with intelligent auto AGC. This new feature On-board Automated Gain Control (AGC) will enable clear video in all light conditions.

The OWL 640 also features an on-board intelligent 3 point NUC which will provide the highest quality images 

As with all Raptor cameras the OWL 640 is an ultra compact, low power (<5W) camera which makes it ideal for hand-held, mobile or airborne systems.

It is very rugged, and has no fan enabling integration into UAV, handheld or any Electro-Optic system.

There are a range of applications that can be used with the OWL 640 including 860, 1064 and 1550nm laser line detection, active Imaging, airborne payload, Hand Held Goggles, Imaging through fog, Range finding, Semiconductor Inspection, SolarCell Inspection, Telecommunications and Thermography

Raptor also offers a 640 digital / CameraLink version, as well as a 320 version of this camera and a High Speed version (up to 350Hz).

Raptor Photonics: OWL 1280 SWIR HD format Digital InGaAs Camera

OWL 1280

Using a 1280 x 1024 InGaAs sensor from SCD, the Raptor PhotonicsOWL 1280 offers visible extension from 0.4µm to 1.7µm to enable high sensitivity imaging. The 10µm x 10µm pixel pitch enables the highest resolution imaging. The camera will also offer 2 x 2 binning to become 640×512, 20µm pitch for ultimate low light vision and high speed applications. It will offer less than 35 electrons readout noise combined with one of the lowest dark current readings on the market.  The camera will offer ultra-high intrascene dynamic range of 70dB enabling simultaneous capture of bright & dark portions of a scene.
