Cooling

The 1110S can cool CCDs down to absolute -120°C by cryogenic cooling. Cryo-cooling is accomplished by one compressor housed in supplied cabinet with braided stainless steel lines running to camera head. 

Sensors

The 1110S is designed to accommodate multi-port CCD sensors which includes the 9k x 9k 10µm pixel CCD from e2v.  4k x 4k and 6k x 6k also available.

Binned Imaging

Serial and parallel binning, for reduced area and high speed.

Tailored Optical Design

Customized windows, lenses & coatings.

Shutter

The camera incorporates an internal flexible shutter drive that can be used with a variety of common shutters. Outputs are available to signal an external shutter driver.

Trigger

Dual trigger inputs can be configured for a variety of operations, such as expose and read on trigger or shift line and read for externally paced TDI readout.

Software

Included with every camera is our SI Image software suite for camera control, data manipulation and archiving. C++ and LabView SDK (Windows & Linux) are available upon request. C# SDK also available for Windows.

Spectral Instruments customizes each camera’s performance for the intended application.

The 1110S supports a variety of custom & commercially available CCDs.
