ANTRIM, Northern Ireland, Jan. 9, 2014 — Raptor Photonics Ltd.’s CCD cameras, developed using Sony ExView HAD II sensor technology, offer a choice of 2.8-, 6- or 9-MP resolution and are available in both mono and RGB. Pixel size is 4.54 µm. The deep-cooled vacuum Kingfisher V provides ultralow readout noise (<3 e–s) and almost negligent dark current (1 e– every 16 min). It is suitable for longer-exposure staring applications such as fluorescence, bioluminescence and astronomy. The compact, stabilized Kingfisher Standard offers readout noise of <7 e–s and low dark current. The board-level Kingfisher OEM provides a detachable sensor, enabling replacement with various resolutions. The camera is available uncooled or with custom cooling options. All cameras offer 16-bit scientific resolution, run at speeds up to 20 fps and can operate in conditions from –20 to 55 °C. They use a Camera Link interface and work with MicroManager.
