Kingfisher cameras

Share this on social media:

Raptor Photonics will present a new range of CCD cameras for fluorescence applications at Photonics West in San Francisco (1-6 February). Based on the new breed of Sony sensors, developed using Sony ExView HAD II sensor technology, (ICX674, ICX694, and ICX814) the cameras offer a choice of resolutions (2.8MP, 6MP and 9MP) and are available in both mono and RGB. With a pixel size of 4.54µm, these sensors provide ultra-sharp images.

The Kingfisher V is a vacuum deep cooled (Δ-111°C) CCD, offering a read-out noise of <3e-s and almost negligent dark current of 1 electron per every 16 minutes, making it suitable for longer exposure applications such as fluorescence, bioluminescence and astronomy.

The Kingfisher Standard is a stabilised cooled CCD offering read-out noise of <7e-s and low dark current in a rugged and compact design.

The Kingfisher OEM is a board level camera available uncooled or with custom cooling options with a detachable sensor enabling easy replacement with various resolutions.

The Kingfisher range offers 16-bit scientific resolution, variable speeds up to 20fps, operating in conditions from -20°C to +55°C, and running using a Camera Link interface.
