Syncerity BI-NIR Camera

Syncerity BI IR CCD Camera

OEM CCD Camera

The TE-cooled back illuminated 2048 x 70 CCD Camera combines affordability, performance and versatility for OEM applications. With peak QE of 84% @ 700nm and 20% at 1050nm, Syncerity BI-NIR offers a relatively broad response and addresses multiple applications. In the near-NIR, this detector is a much lower cost alternative to a deep depleted CCD, with no etaloning. Syncerity’s flexible design allows our OEM-dedicated team to quickly adapt the camera for industrial requirements, ranging from alternate CCD chips to electronics
