The all new SWIR camera by PCO
The SWIR camera from PCO is a high performance machine vision camera, which is due to its special InGaAs image sensor sensitive in the shortwave infrared, near infrared and visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum. It shows a favorably high sensitivity in the whole spectral range with more than 85 % in the shortwave infrared part. Due to its small pixels the camera enables the use of small magnification optics in microscopy and a low dark current to enable even longer exposure times.
The new pco.edge 4.2 bi XU
The pco.edge 4.2 bi XU is based on a back illuminated sCMOS sensor with a very specific coating which allows applications in the visible light down to extreme UV (EUV) and soft X-ray radiation. The camera is adapted for ultra-high vacuum operations and has been characterized using soft X-ray in the energy range from 30 eV to 1000 eV. The image sensor features 2048 x 2048 pixel with a pixel size of 6.5 µm x 6.5 µm and allows full frame acquisitions at 48 Hz with a dynamic range of 88 dB at a noise level of 1.9 e -. The camera is compact and offers various software integration options.

Expanding the pco.edge series
The pco.edge 10 bi CLHS is PCO's next level sCMOS camera with unprecedented imaging performance. Thanks to its back illuminated image sensor it comes with a quantum efficiency of up to 85 % with broad spectrum out to NIR. The sensor incorporates microlenses and a full pixel height deep trench isolation for crosstalk suppression resulting in an excellent MTF. Further, the camera provides a large image circle by using a high-resolution 10.5 MPixel image sensor with a square pixel size of 4.6 um.
With the pco.edge 26 CLHS, another new sCMOS camera is coming onto the market. It combines the image quality of a 26 MPixel image sensor and operates at minimum read noise and dark current.
Both cameras are equipped with 4 CLHS FOL channels – all aligned in one compact plug – and capable of transmitting up to 4.9 GByte/s.
These features make the pco.edge CLHS series a powerful solution for applications in microscopy, life science, and physical science.
