pco.2000 1pco.2000 2pco.2000 3

This high resolution 14bit CCD cooled camera system comprises advanced CCD and electronics technology. With the new approach to integrate the image memory (camRAM) into the camera itself, it enables unmatched fast image recording with 160 MB/s. The system features thermo-electrical cooling (delta vs. ambient -50 °C), a superior high resolution (2048 x 2048 pixel) and low noise (down to 9 e- rms). It consists of a compact camera with an external intelligent power supply. The image data are transferred via customer selectable standard data interfaces to a computer (IEEE 1394 (“firewire“), camera link, GigE Vision, USB 2.0). The available exposure times range from 5 µs to 49 days (500 ns opt.).This digital CCD camera system is perfectly suited for low light camera and piv camera applications. Color and monochrome image sensors are available.
