Hamamatsu ORCA ER 1.4MP Monochrome CCD Microscope Camera

Hamamatsu ORCA ER 1.4MP Monochrome CCD Microscope Camera

The ORCA-AG is a high resolution digital camera with a progressive scan interline CCD chip with no mechanical shutter. Features include 1.37 million pixels. wide dynamic range. 12 bit digital output. With very high quantum efficiency and low noise. this camera is designed for a wide range of applications including low light level imaging. Peltier cooling with hermetic vacuum sealing drastically reduces dark noise and minimizes thermal drift. which makes the camera an ideal choice for demanding scientific and industrial applications.

A high performance serial bus IEEE 1394 is used as a computer interface. Furthermore. a standard C-mount lens coupling makes it easy to connect to optics such as optical microscopes.
