pco.egde 4.2 bi UV USB

pco.edge 4.2 bi UV USB sCMOS Camera

The pco.edge 4.2 bi UV is built on the trusted pco.edge series of scientific CMOS cameras with modern back-illuminated sensor technology. It offers a 2048 x 2048 pixel high resolution and 6.5 x 6.5 μm² pixel size for high quality imaging. Featuring a specialized input window, this UV sensitive sCMOS camera can achieve high quantum efficiency in the ultraviolet wavelength range.

The pco.edge 4.2 bi UV USB sCMOS camera offers an adjustable cooling system with the option to use air or water to cool the sensor down to -25 °C thus, reducing the dark current to 0.2 e-/pixel/s. It also incorporates a powerful USB 3.1 interface complementing its high performance.
