Nocturn XS

The Nocturn XS offers a digital output compatible with CameraLink® or parallel LVCMOS. The camera is powered by the Lynx CMOS imaging sensor which is optimized for low light level imaging. 

It is the smallest configuration of Nocturn perfect for demanding applications. 

Day to Low light detection
High frame rate, no latency
Monochrome or Smart Color
OEM Interface for customisation
Passive low-light camera


The Nocturn XS camera core is a ruggedized passive low-light camera module that features high definition resolution, high sensitivity and a high dynamic range all with low power consumption. It is power by Photonis' 1 inch optical format 1280 x 1024 pixel (SXGA) Lynx CMOS sensor and provides real time imaging capabilities (from daylight to bright starlight scene illumination) in the visible and near-infrared spectrum. It's small size, weight and power (SWaP) makes this camera module ideal for integration into aerial, mobile and hand-held surveillance systems.
