pco.edge 4.2

groundbreaking sCMOS technology for outstanding image quality

The pco.edge 4.2 is is equipped with an innovative scientific CMOS sensor providing crisp images and precise measurements. It can be optionally upgraded with a water cooling system.

 

The pco.edge 4.2 camera system is designed for users who require highest quantum efficiency, best 16 bit dynamic range, high frame rates, long exposure times and extremely low readout noise.

 

Camera Link HS guarantees uncompressed and secure data transfer. The latest standard of high-performance data interfaces enables the bridging of long distances via fiber optic cable.
