The Hamamatsu ORCA 100 Series Digital Cameras and Controllers offer high-speed scanning, a high dynamic range, a high signal-to-noise ratio, and high resolution, all at one time. This series also utilizes software and frame grabber compatibilities, no mechanical shutter, a progressive scan interline CCD, and application flexibility including GFP. The Hamamatsu ORCA 100 Series is available in both 10- and 12-bit versions as well as B/W and Color configurations offering total flexibility to meet all your application needs.
The ORCA series of cameras are high resolution digital cameras using a progressive scan interline CCD chip with no mechanical shutter. In addition to a high resolution of 1.3 million pixels and 10 or 12 bit digital output, they offer a wide dynamic range and high sensitivity.
Based on the special Sony ICX-061 chip, ORCA cameras are suitable for a wide range of applications. This CCD chip provides exceptional sensitivity in the UV and blue to green spectrum and electronic shuttering from 80 microseconds to 10 seconds integration. Peltier cooling* drastically reduces dark noise and minimizes thermal drift, making these cameras an ideal choice for demanding scientific and industrial applications. A unique feature provides on the fly contrast enhancement of any image. RS422A digital output insures compatibility with a large variety of commercially available frame grabber boards. Furthermore, a standard C-mount lens coupling makes it easy to connect to optical microscopes and standard macro lenses.
