The pco.edge 5.5 sCMOS camera operates with streaming via a 10G FOL (Camera Link HS). It allows for direct processing of large data transfers on a computer. This high-performance data interface makes it easy to securely bridge distances of more than 10 km.

The pco.edge 4.2 sCMOS camera operates with streaming via a 10G FOL (Camera Link HS). It allows for direct processing of large data transfers on a computer. This high-performance data interface makes it easy to securely bridge distances of more than 10 km.

The pco.edge 4.2 bi UV is a compact, cooled, back illuminated sCMOS camera designed to work inside the ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths. A specialized input window inside the camera achieves high QE within the UV range. Based on the compact pco.edge series with back illuminated sensor technology, this camera is perfect for demanding lighting conditions, even without active cooling.

The pco.panda 4.2 bi UV is a compact, back illuminated sCMOS camera designed to work inside the ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths. A specialized input window inside the camera achieves high QE within the UV range. Based on the compact pco.panda series with back illuminated sensor technology, this camera is perfect for demanding lighting conditions, even without active cooling.

PCO offers the pco.edge 26 sCMOS camera with 5120 x 5120 pixel resolution and a 2.5 x 2.5 µm² pixel size for achieving the maximum level of spatial resolution for many applications, including microscopy imaging with low magnification.

Canon’s new 3U3MRXSAAC is a 2.8 MP CMOS sensor equipped with an HDR drive function that achieves a wide 120 dB range at low noise levels. The sensor’s wide range results in a greater ability to extract usable information, even in situations where there is a substantial difference between the lightest and darkest areas of an image.

Canon’s 35MMFHDXSB sensors are designed with deeper wells, resulting in an almost 45% increase in quantum efficiency (QE) at 800 nm verses the standard 19 µm pixel size sensor. Featuring 19µm pixel sizes available in monochrome (35MMFHDXSBM) or with a specialized RGB-NIR color filter array (35MMFHDXSBI), these CMOS sensors allow for expanded possibilities in a wide range of applications.

Canon’s 2U250MRXSAA CMOS sensor offers 250 MP resolution capable of capturing detail 125 times greater than in full HD resolution at a fast frame rate of 5 FPS. This APS-H format sensor leverages a square pixel arrangement of 1.5 µm x 1.5 µm pixels with progressive reading of 1.5 µm pixels across 16 digital output channels to handle the enormous amount of image data created by roughly 250 million effective pixels.
