pco.edge 5.5 USB

pco.edge 5.5 USB sCMOS Camera

The pco.edge 5.5 USB camera is equipped with a well-established scientific CMOS (sCMOS) sensor that provides crisp images and precise measurements. The pco.edge 5.5 sCMOS camera features an option to upgrade with a water-cooling system and is ideally suited for applications that require high resolution, high frame rates, best 16-bit dynamic range, selectable shutter variants and an optional color sensor.
