pco.dicam C8 LT
8-channel intensified sCMOS camera

In case your application does not challenge the absolute technical limits in intensified imaging we have developed the pco.dicam C8 LT. This intensified sCMOS camera system grants you full access to true optical gated imaging.

This budget friendly alternative to the standard and UHS models is based on the proven technology of the pco.dicam C4 platform. It combines eight 18 mm high-quality image intensifiers in a fully integrated 8-channel sCMOS camera. The light of a single optical input is equally distributed to 8 image intensifiers with 51 ns shortest gating. Each channel can detect single photons at full 2.3 MPixel resolution. With zero ns interframing time, this corresponds to a burst rate of 19,600,000 fps. All optical elements deployed for the beam splitting and guidance are adopted from the very successful pco.dicam C4 design. 

The 8 x 10G fiber optic data interface (Camera Link HS) guarantees you uncompressed and secure data transfer, while its Forward Error Correction algorithms assure a maximum of data integrity. With the latest standard of high-performance data interfaces, you can bridge long distances via fiber optic cable.

Let our decades of research and development in intensified and sCMOS camera technology benefit your application!
