14 bit CCD camera

This versatile high performance digital 14 bit CCD camera system is specifically designed for low light applications in the range of visible light up to 1100 nm. The pco.1400 has an extraordinary quantum efficiency. In addition a proprietary offset control algorithm has been added which provides very high offset stability. Some of the pco.1400‘s unique features are its increased sensitivity in the NIR range of the spectrum and the no glow functionality. Binning can be selected to accommodate the user‘s application. Camera features excellent resolution, high dynamic range, exposure times from 1 µs to 60 s, excellent low noise, high frame-rates and standard Firewire interface.
