Ultra Violet cameras

Ultra Violet (UV) intensified cameras and cores, combining Photonis brand long-time expertise in Image Intensifier tubes with state-of-the-art camera technology.

Photonis, part of Exosens, is proud to offer Ultra Violet cameras and cores , UV intensified cameras, combining our long-time expertise in Image Intensifier tubes with state-of-the-art camera technology.

Our Ultra Violet (UV) cameras and cores are designed to operate within the UV wavelength range, spanning from 190 nm to 400 nm. Light from the UV range is invisible to the human eye, but with our sensitive UV imaging sensor users can capture and visualize phenomena that generate UV radiation, giving them new opportunities and insights. UV imaging has a broad range of applications across multiple industries from scientific to industrial that include semiconductor quality inspection, electrical discharge detection, power grid maintenance, environmental UV monitoring and fluorescence microscopy.

The iNocturn Series are able to detect and visualize any signal in UV from 200 to 700nm. The small form factor and ruggedized housing makes it ideal for mobile applications.

The i2Nocturn Series features a double MCP and up to a typical maximum photon gain of 1 000 000, providing maximum sensitivity.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Photonis UV camera and other UV camera in the market?

In general, a UV camera is able to capture an image within UV spectrum where human eyes are incapable to see. The Photonis UV camera stands out from the other cameras because it is equipped with Photonis’ image intensifier tube allowing for a drastic improvement of sensitivity and low-light performance in the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum.

How does the image intensifier tube work in a UV camera?

The image intensifier tube amplifies low-intensity UV light by converting photons into electrons and then multiplying them before converting them back into visible light. This results in a brighter and clearer image, especially in low-light conditions.

What applications is a UV camera with these features commonly used?

Photonis UV cameras suits for applications in fields such as surveillance, scientific research, industrial inspection, and defense, where the detection and analysis of low-light UV signals are crucial.

Can the UV camera be used in daylight conditions?

While designed for low-light conditions, Photonis UV features gain control to adapt various lighting conditions, including daylight. However, we strongly suggest not operating the camera with direct sunlight.
