Scientific CMOS board level camera


The C11440-52U30 is a compact and highly sensitive board level camera with a scientific CMOS sensor. The camera has over 80 % quantum efficiency. The camera runs at 30 frames/s at full resolution and it can reach up to 25 655 frames/s (512 × 8 ROI). This enhanced QE means that you have a possibility of detecting the faintest of signals. Or, for moderately dim samples, that the ideal image is achievable with shorter exposure times.
The C11440-52U30 has low camera noise of 2.3 electrons (rms) at 30 frames/s. The compact (90 mm × 90 mm) and light weight design is idea for integration into various measurement and analytical instruments. In addition to that the camera employs a USB 3.0 digital interface for convenience and compatibility.
