ORCA-R 2 "Rapid Readout" Digital CCD Camera

Herrsching am Ammersee, (PresseBox) - Hamamatsu has launched the new ORCA-R2 "Rapid Readout" digital CCD camera. Building on the success of the established, market-leading ORCA AG and based on the same exclusive ER-150 progressive scan interline 1344 x 1024 pixel CCD, the new ORCA-R2 is designed to maintain Hamamatsu's competitive edge for demanding, non-EM CCD applications in the visible to NIR.

The ORCA-R2 has two scan speeds; a normal scan speed of 14MHz and a rapid scan speed of 28MHz which deliver full resolution 1.37M pixel images at 8.5 frames/second and 16.2 frames/second respectively. With binning, the ORCA-R2 has a maximum frame rate of 64.3 frames/second. Data output is via Firewire IEEE 1394b.

The ER-150 CCD is enclosed in a hermetic vacuum-sealed head, the same as the previous ORCA-AG, but air-cooling has been improved to -35°C and the ORCA-R2 also comes with water-cooling connections as standard, for operation at -40°C for applications where lowlevel signals mean a tighter control of thermal noise is required.

Digitisation can be carried out in either 12 or 16 bit A-D converters, and image enhancement is possible using analogue gain and offset controls.

All this improved ORCA-R2 performance has been squeezed into the familiar ORCA-AG camera head size, including an extended range of programmable trigger signal (edge, level, start, synchronous, cyclic) output options.

The ORCA-R2 is the camera of choice for a range of applications, such as fluorescence microscopy, where a balance of speed, sensitivity and resolution are essential.
