Photon HRC

 

The Photon HRC camera core consists of a detector/dewar/cooler assembly (DDCA), camera electronics, and a mechanical frame (pictured). It is one of the smallest high-resolution (640x512) MWIR cooled camera cores in the world, and is based on our 15-micron pitch, high performance, low power, Indium Antimonide (InSb) focal plane array.

Product Information

Photon HRC is one of the smallest high-resolution (640x512) MWIR cooled camera cores in the world. Based on our 15-micron pitch, high performance, low power, Indium Antimonide (InSb) focal plane array, the Photon HRC camera core consists of a detector/dewar/cooler assembly (DDCA), and the camera electronics.

 

Photon HRC’s electronics includes two cards: the power/video board and the cooler controller board. The camera outputs NTSC video, 8-bit corrected video and 14-bit digital data. Communication is over a serial (RS-232 or RS-422) interface. An optional ethernet module supports IP video data capture and communication. Photon HRC’s steady-state power consumption is less than 8 Watts.

 

At less than 1 pound, and with its low power claim, Photon HRC is the perfect high-performance, miniature camera for small space platforms.
