The Raptor Photonics Owl 640 M is a compact, low-power and cost effective camera solution within the Owl 640 family. The camera is a TEC-less version of the successful Owl 640, meaning it offers the lowest power consumption of any Owl 640 variant (< 2.5W). This SWaP (size, weight and power) design is suitable for integration into small OEM and machine vision scientific platforms.

Key features of the Owl 640 M include:

  • TEC-less visible SWIR | Enables ultra low power (<2.5W)
  • 15μm x 15μm pixel pitch | Enables high resolution VIS-SWIR image
  • Ultra high intrascene dynamic range | Enables simultaneous capture of bright & dark portions of a scene
  • Ultra compact, rugged, no fan | Specially designed for integration into small OEM platforms

Applications of the Owl 640 M include:

  • Surveillance
    • 860, 1064 & 1550nm laser line detection
    • Hand Held Goggles
    • Vision enhancement
    • Machine vision
    • Beam profiling
  • Scientific
    • CubeSat / LEO applications
    • Beam profiling
    • Semiconductor inspection
    • Solar panel cell inspection
