NIR optimized camera with ICX285, Peltier cooling -20°C

The Bigeye P-132B NIR Cool is distinguished by high performance both in the visible spectrum and  the NIR spectrum; its ICX285 CCD sensor is modified for enhanced NIR sensitivity.
The compact, robust metal housing has a hermetically sealed vacuum section. It ensures maintenance-free operation for many years even under rough conditions.

  • ICX285 ExView HAD CCD sensor, enhanced NIR sensitivity
  • Peltier cooling to -20° Celsius absolute
  • 12.5 fps at max. resolution, 25 fps with binning
  • Exposure time 100 µs sec to 1000 seconds
  • Superior signal-to-noise ratio

  • Binning (2 x 2)
  • Gain (6 dB)
  • Exposure time 100 µs to 1000 seconds
  • Background correction
  • Continuous mode (image acquisition with maximum frame rate)
  • Image on Demand mode (triggered image acquisition)

In combination with AVT’s AcquireControl software, extensive image analysis functions are available:

  • BCG LUT (brightness, contrast, gamma)
  • Auto contrast
  • Auto brightness
  • Analyze multiple regions (rectangular, circle) within the image
  • Real-time statistics and histogram display
  • … and more

The Bigeye P-132B NIR Cool is optimized for image acquisition both in the visible and in the NIR spectral range. For this reason, many applications can be realized with just one camera.
