pco.edge 4.2 bi UV
strong in the ultraviolet range with cooled back-illuminated sCMOS

Providing you UV sensitive cameras has been our matter of course for many years. With the pco.edge 4.2 bi UV we're taking it to a new level: The specialized input window inside the camera helps you to achieve high QE in the ultraviolet wavelength range. The system itself is based on our tried and trusted pco.edge series with modern back illuminated sensor technology.

The adjustable cooling system allows you the use of air or water to cool the sensor down to -25 °C. At this temperature, the dark current is reduced to 0.2 e-/pixel/s.

High resolution and 6.5 x 6.5 μm² pixel size guarantees you high-quality images. The pco.edge 4.2 bi UV incorporates a powerful USB 3.1 interface complementing its performance.
