Syncerity CCD Camera (for UV-VIS)

Overview

SYNCERITY TM 1024 x 256

The deep cooled Open Electrode 1024 x 256 CCD Camera combines affordability, performance and versatility for both Research and OEM applications. With peak UV QE at 32% and peak VIS-NIR at 58%, SyncerityTM offers a relatively flat response and addresses multiple applications. In the near-NIR, this detector is a lower cost alternative to the deep depletion CCD, with no etaloning. The dynamic range of this SyncerityTM camera is unmatched at 92.5dB (in image mode) and the CCD's tall format is an  excellent fit for imaging spectroscopy applications. Its flexible design allows our OEM dedicated team to quickly adapt the camera for industrial requirements, ranging from alternate CCD chips to  electronics customizations.
