pco.4000
cooled 14 bit CCD camera

The pco.4000 high resolution 14bit cooled CCD camera comprises advanced CCD and electronics technology. With the approach to integrate the image memory into the camera itself, it enables fast image recording. The system features thermoelectric cooling, a high resolution and low noise. It consists of a compact camera with an external intelligent power supply.

The image data is transferred via customer selectable standard data interfaces to your computer. The available exposure times range from 5 µs to 49 days. This cooled digital CCD camera system is perfectly suited for low light and high resolution camera applications, like microscopy, aerial photography or quality control.
