pco.pixelfly usb - Show Details article

Product Details
This high performance digital 14bit CCD camera system features state of the art in CCD and electronics technology. The pco.pixelfly usb has an extraordinary quantum efficiency with up to 65%. The available exposure times range from 5µs to 60 s. A digital temperature compensation is integrated instead of a space consuming thermo-electrical cooling unit. All camera functions can be remotely accessed and controlled via digital interface. This compact digital CCD camera system is perfectly suited for many scientific and industrial imaging applications, like microscopy, spectroscopy and quality control.
