Hamamatsu’s Cooled CCD Camera ORCA-R2 offers all three features…plus more…in a compact and versatile camera. Its ER-150 CCD image sensor is responsive to a wide spectral range, with especially high sensitivity in the visible and near-infrared regions. The CCD is encased in a maintenance-free, hermetic vacuum-sealed chamber, which ensures efficient camera cooling, by either air or water. Thanks to this cooling structure and an advanced external circuit design, the ORCA-R2 offers rapid readout with minimal noise. In its normal scan mode, the ORCA-R2 provides 8.5 frames per second at full spatial resolution. In fast scan mode, frame rates range from 16.2 to 115.1 frames per second at varying levels of resolution.
