Atik Cameras, a specialist designer and manufacturer of scientific and industrial imaging solutions, has launched the first in its advanced imaging solutions, investing in new CCD (charged coupled device) technology. The TE-77 paves the way for a new series of advanced performance, scientific imaging cameras, capable of remarkable sensitivity.
This impressive CCD sensor boasts large square pixels of 24 µm², over a 12.3 mm² sensor area. Coupled with reliable cooling delta of -60°C, this camera achieves incredibly low read noise, enabling detection of the faintest signals. Furthermore, the deep full well depth of 300,000 e- full well (600,000 e- summing well) means there is minimal saturation when imaging, revealing exceptional detail. It is ideal for the most demanding applications such as chemiluminescence, fluorescence, spectroscopy, microscopy, and bioluminescence. The design and engineering of the TE-77 complements this advanced sensor from Teledyne e2v perfectly.
The TE-77 can be supplied with a wide range of bespoke options including the choice to add a 45mm, bi-stable high speed scientific shutter, capable of 20.0 millisecond opening times. The case can be adapted to suit specific requirements or supplied as a simple PCB board set solution. Atik provides a comprehensive software development kit, complete with expert integration assistance from the in-house engineering team. In addition, all production takes place in the firm's ISO-9001 accredited, European manufacturing facilities.
