Up to 15% OFF on all Raptor SWIR Cameras

Fantastic Christmas offer from QDUKI and Raptor Photonics

Until the 31st January 2022, Quantum Design UK and Ireland is offering up to 15% off the whole Raptor Photonics SWIR Camera range.

If you’ve been considering adding SWIR capabilities to your lab, now is the time to treat yourself!

Raptor has become the market leader in SWIR camera technology and their cameras are used in a variety of applications including low light day and night-time imaging, spectroscopy, fluorescence, time-resolved, in-vivo imaging.

Up to 15% off the SWIR cameras range from Raptor Photonics – get in touch for more details. Purchase Order needs to be placed on or before 31st January 2022

Meet some of our SWIR cameras

Raptor OWL 640 T VIS-SWIR Camera – The World’s First SWaP Optimised ½” / VGA InGaAs Sensor with VIS-SWIR Response

The Owl 640 T is the latest variant of the Owl 640 family, being the world’s first SWaP optimised ½” / VGA InGaAs sensor with a 10µm x 10µm pixel pitch. The Owl 640 T offers a spectral response from 0.6µm to 1.7µm and 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.

Raptor Ninox 640 II VIS-SWIR Camera – High resolution, low noise, digital InGaAs camera

The Ninox 640 II is the next generation of the highly successful Ninox 640. With an ultra low typical readout noise (rms) of 18 electrons and a typical dark current reading of <750e- at -15°C, the Ninox 640 II improves even further on it’s noise performance. The mechanical design of the camera is also much improved and the camera is significantly more compact than the initial Ninox 640.

Raptor OWL 640 N VIS-SWIR Camera – Ultra Low Readout Noise (<18e-) Digital VIS-SWIR Camera

Using next-generation technology, Raptor has launched one of the lowest noise VIS-SWIR cameras on the market, perfect for imaging in low light conditions. Using a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor, and the sensor stabilised to 15°C, the Owl 640 N offers a visible response from 0.4µm to 1.7µm to enable a high sensitivity. The camera also offers the lowest readout noise on the market with a typical value of 18 electrons. The camera has a high intra-scene dynamic range of typically 73dB, enabling simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene.

Raptor Ninox 1280 VIS-SWIR Camera – High resolution, low noise, cooled, digital VIS-SWIR InGaAs camera

Using a 1280 x 1024 InGaAs sensor, the Ninox 1280 offers visible extension from 0.4µm to 1.7µm to enable high sensitivity scientific imaging. With cooling to -15°C, the camera achieves typical dark current readings of <2,000e/p/s at this temperature, allowing for longer exposure times. This is one of the lowest dark current readings on the market for a HD resolution SWIR camera. The 10µm x 10µm pixel pitch enables the highest resolution imaging. The camera will offer ultra-high intrascene dynamic range of 69dB enabling simultaneous capture of bright & dark portions of a scene.
