pco.egde 4.2 USB

pco.edge 4.2 USB sCMOS Camera

The pco.edge 4.2 USB scientific camera is equipped with an innovative scientific CMOS (sCMOS) sensor that allows exceptional image quality and precise measurements. With the ability to capture crisp images, the pco.edge 4.2 USB sCMOS camera system is ideal for applications requiring highest quantum efficiency, best 16-bit dynamic range, high frame rates, long exposure times, and extremely low readout noise. 

With a very high quantum efficiency (QE), the pco.edge 4.2 USB camera is the ideal choice when high sensitivity is required. The easy-to-connect USB 3.0 interface allows this camera to be used on any device, even notebooks. The sensor is stabilized to 0 °C to reduce the influence of noise and guarantee highest image quality.
