  • 1920 (h) x 1080 (v) sCMOS array,  2.1 Mega Pixel, also available 1.3 Mega Pixel and 4.2 Mega Pixel
  • Input pixel size : 6.5 x 6.5 microns
  • 18 fps at full resolution in rolling shutter mode 16-bit dynamic range range
  • Peak Quantum efficiency: 60% @ 550nm

Delivers read out noise as low as 1 electron at 200MHz overall scanning frequency.

The new high sensitivity full HDTV low noise cooled sCMOS camera from PSL delivers read out noise as low as 1 electron at 200MHz overall scanning frequency.

It is targeted to users with low light level requirements, seeking real time acquisition with high intra scene dynamic range. The camera is actively compensating for fixed pattern noise, non uniform response and gain balance on a parallel bus read out architecture. Our camera can be triggered with global or rolling shutter options, in full area scan or with reduced ROI scan for faster acquisition rates.

The small pixel size and good quantum efficiency make the camera an ideal candidate for fluorescence microscopy applications, hyperspectral imaging, on-line process control, low-light level imaging and spectroscopy applications.

The camera comes with a Gigabyte Ethernet interface and can be easily integrated into a networked instrumentation environment.
