Raptor Photonics Falcon FA285-CL

Raptor Photonics Bundle

View, Capture, Save from a high sensitivity / low-light CCD Camera

The digital FALCON EMCCD camera, model FA285-CL, combines high sensitivity, speed and high resolution. It uses Texas Instruments' 1MegaPixel Frame Transfer Impactron device which provides QE up to 65%.

FALCON EM285 comes with a standard CameraLink output. It is the smallest and most rugged 1MP EMCCD camera in the world. It is ideally suited for any low imaging application such as hyperspectral imaging, X-ray imaging, Astronomy and low light surveillance.

It is small, lightweight, low power and is therefore the ideal camera for OEM and integrators.
