pco.panda 26 DS sCMOS Camera

Our pco.panda 26 DS is an ultra-compact sCMOS camera with 5120 x 5120 pixel resolution designed for particle image velocimetry (PIV) applications. Featuring outstanding double shutter capabilities, the pco.panda 26 DS is the perfect camera solution for performing effective double imaging – essential for PIV measurements in flow analysis. The pco.panda 26 DS camera features a small 2.5 x 2.5 µm pixel size with a resolution capacity well-suited for use in optical systems. 

With a true charge domain global shutter, the pco.panda 26 DS camera can achieve remarkably low readout noise and dark current. In addition, its pixel architecture enables double shutter image acquisition with an interframing time of only 1 µs. The single cable solution via USB 3.1 connection eliminates the need for an external power supply allowing for faster data transfer. Due to its ultra-compact housing and interface, the pco.panda 26 DS can be easily integrated into your PIV or Flow Visualization setup.

Excelitas offers a comprehensive selection of software options for use with PCO cameras to help optimize your application.
