    Zafiro® 640 Micro
    One of the smallest, lowest-power mid-wave infrared (MWIR) camera modules on the market today, the Zafiro®640 Micro creates sharp 640 x 480 pixel images through rain, smoke, dust, haze, light fog and the dark of night. Utilizing a 12 μm pixel pitch focal plane array, the Zafiro®640 Micro allows smaller and lighter optics without compromising imaging performance.

    Features
  • Mercury Cadmium Telluride technology with a patented linear cryogenic cooler design provides less vibration and noise
  • Longer life designed to run for 12,000 hours on average without failure
  • Highly compact so it can be configured in a package of approximately 2x2x2 inches including video and cooler electronics
  • Weighs less than 0.9 pounds
  • Uses only 5 watts of power at room temperature
  • Integrated electronics provides cooler drive, non-uniformity correction, local area processing (LAP), and Camera Link® and NTSC video outputs
