Low noise CCD camera with ICX285, Peltier cooling -20°C

The Bigeye P-132B/C is a low noise CCD camera. It is designed to produce superior image quality with an outstanding signal/noise ratio.
With an exposure time range from 100 microseconds to 1000 seconds, this camera is well suited for a wide variety of applications. The compact, robust metal housing of the cooled cameras has a hermetically sealed vacuum section. It ensures maintenance-free operation for many years even under rough conditions.

  • ICX285 ExView HAD CCD sensor
  • 12.5 fps at max. resolution, 25 fps with binning
  • Exposure time 100 µs sec to 1000 seconds
  • Superior signal/noise ratio, designed for best image quality
  • The cooled version (-20°C absolute) is ideal for long exposure times

The Bigeye P-132 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. Thanks to the Peltier cooling, it is ideal for image acquisition with long exposure times.

Typical applications:

  • Low noise imaging (industrial and scientific imaging)
  • Image acquisition with long exposure times (Peltier cooled version)
  • Microscopy (low light)
  • Non-destructive evaluation of photosensitive objects
