Cooled 6 Megapixel Full Frame CCD camera

The Bigeye P-629B is a cooled CCD camera with 6 Megapixels resolution and a sensitive full-frame sensor. The camera is distinguished by a high quantum efficiency both in the visible and in the NIR spectrum up to 1 µm wavelength. The sensor temperature is stabilized to +5°C, this ensures low noise and a constant dark current for high-precision image acquisition. The camera can operate with its internal long-live electromechanical shutter, or with external impulse light sources and constantly opened shutter.

  • 6 Megapixel Truesense Full Frame CCD sensor
  • Cooled to +5°C (stabilized)
  • High QE (quantum efficiency) in the visible and NIR range
  • Built-in electromechanical long-live shutter 
  • 14-bit signal processing and output

The Bigeye P-629B Cool is a low noise CCD camera with an invincible signal/noise ratio. It is best suited for applications with the highest demands on image quality. The spectral range of its sensor covers both the visible and the NIR spectral range. Due to the Peltier cooling, the camera is ideal for image acquisition with long exposure times.

Typical applications:

  • Low-noise imaging (industrial and scientific imaging)
  • Image acquisition with long exposure times
  • Non-destructive evaluation of photosensitive objects
