SPU30 Cooled CCD Camera article

SPU30 Cooled CCD Camera

Choose a high quality cooled CCD Camera to package with your 1/8 meter, 1/4 meter, or 1/2 meter Digikröm® Spectrograph!

Sophisticated spectroscopic applications require the ultra low-noise and low-temperature cooling features of cameras that normally cost tens of thousands of dollars. By employing superior optical coupling, stray light rejection, and versatile data acquisition software you can assemble your own affordable high-performance CCD/Spectrograph system.

By offering the best value in CCD spectroscopy, you can select high resolution spectrographs for use with cameras operating from 200nm to 1100nm. Multiple input imaging is also supported by the larger 1/4 meter and 1/2 meter spectrograph systems.

Cooled CCD cameras are available for your specific application and budgetary needs. Accessories such as fibers/fiber couplers, special probes, and light sources are also available to help complete your system.
