The Nocturn family of low light camera cores provide day-through-night imaging, capturing images in extreme lighting conditions from daylight through quarter-moon darkness. Nocturn cameras are ruggedized, making them ideal for surveillance, security and mobile applications such as border patrol, reconnaissance UAVs and armored vehicle perimeter monitoring. Optimized for size, weight and power (SWaP) requirements, Nocturn camera cores are also a well-suited imaging solution for man-portable uses such as weapon sights, helmet displays and monoculars.
The Nocturn U3 is a simple plug-and-play low light camera solution for high-resolution imaging under a wide variety of lighting conditions. This camera core is equipped with award-winning CMOS low light technology and features a USB3 Vision digital video output that is GenICam compliant. These important features allow the camera module to provide both full daylight and low light images in either monochrome or color for a wide variety of machine vision, security or surveillance applications. The Noctun U3 is a rugged solution for surveillance and security applications where high-resolution day-through-night images can provide identifying or actionable visual evidence even in starlight conditions. With simple connectivity in a compact form, the Nocturn U3 provides ideal images for superior surveillance solutions.
