pco.edge 4.2 bi USB sCMOS Camera

The pco.edge 4.2 bi sCMOS camera features back-illuminated sensor technology with a quantum efficiency of up to 95 %. This compact sCMOS camera provides 2048 x 2048 pixel resolution and 6.5 μm pixel size for achieving highest image quality. Its adjustable cooling system offers flexibility in the use of either air or water to cool the sensor down to -25 °C and reduce dark current to 0.2 e-/pixel/s for maximum imaging performance. The pco.edge 4.2 bi camera comes with an input window available for either UV or VIS wavelength ranges to best suit your application.

The pco.edge 4.2 bi scientific camera provides excellent quantum efficiency combined with a high frame rate at 4.2 Megapixel resolution. This camera incorporates a powerful USB 3.1 interface to stream the image data continuously with full 16-bit dynamic range. Furthermore, the pco.edge 4.2 bi sCMOS camera includes sealed electronics to prevent dirt or dust from entering the camera.
